Napoleon Perdis at work.

Holiday time for many conjures up visions of snowflakes, angels and bundled up sled rides, but in Australia, Christmas falls smack in the middle of summer, celebrated with surfing, sunning and picnics. Napoleon Perdis, the Los Angeles makeup artist and brand developer who originally hails from down under, brings a touch of the tropics to our Christmas dreams with his Swept Away collection.

“It’s an upbeat, escapist version of holiday,” stated Mr. Perdis, who hosted a hot chocolate party for New York City press this week.

Swept Away comprises five gift sets, such as the Tropical Heat Ocean Kit ($39), which pays homage to the blue waters of Australia with an eye shadow quad that contains shades of ivory, turquoise, mermaid and deep sea blue. Tropical Heat is also available in Coral and Sand palettes.

Not surprisingly, the beach references do not stop with the shades. In a nod to the rich marine life surrounding Australia, all the Swept Away products have been enhanced with sea-derived ingredients, including brown algae for firming benefits, seaweed for emollience and sea salt for skin conditioning.

The Swept Away gift sets can be purchased stateside at stores carrying the Napoleon Perdis line including, Dillard’s department stores, Stage Stores, Ulta stores, select independent retailers, such as Beauty.com. as well as the three U.S. Napoleon Perdis concept stores.
