The holidays … a time of indulgence and extravagance, parties and festivities. We often satisfy our need for opulence with designer duds and chic accessories for the holidays, but what about our makeup? Your holiday makeup shouldn’t be excluded. It’s an essential that accentuates even the chicest of clothing. Here are a few of my favorite products to help you achieve that perfect holiday glow and have you looking as if you just walked off the red carpet.
Rid yourself of dead skin and clogged pores by cleansing with a detox cleanser, like Biotherm’s Hydra-Detox Bio-Denfensis. The scrubbing micro-particles gently but effectively cleanse and purify skin leaving it glowing and luminous. Follow with a hydrating moisturizer to quench and nourish skin. Try Clarins HydraQuench Rich Cream, which is specially formulated for colder climates.
YSL Top Secrets Flash Radiance Skincare Brush is a must for every woman! With a single stroke of the brush, skin feels velvety smooth while revealing a radiant glow. If you’re anything like me â€” running from party to party â€” your skin begins to look fatigued. All signs are erased with this genius product!
Building the Foundation
A great foundation is key to looking your best for your photo-ops. Perfect for all skin types, Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation gives skin a flawless finish. The weightless, hydrating foundation glides on seamlessly and offers all-day coverage so you can run from work to an event without touching up!
Setting your foundation is a must for keeping your foundation in place. Bare Minerals Mineral Veil provides the best translucent finishing touch to your makeup. Skin looks as if you were airbrushed by Playboy’s creative team.
One Stop Shop
Clarins’ Chic and Glam Makeup Palette offers an easy and convenient palette that houses all the must-have holiday colors for eyes, lips and face. Accompanied with a clutch, this palette is perfect to take on-the-go.
Holiday Clutch Must-Haves
Red wine drinker? I highly recommend Tarte’s Enbrightment Brite Smile Teeth Whitner and Tarte Lip Gloss. One side contains tarte’s t5 super fruit infused lipgloss and the other contains BriteSmile’s teeth whitening formula which offers easy on-the-go application, revealing a brighter smile.
For those long nights, I often carry a fragrance in my clutch to freshen up as the night carries on. La Prairie’s Silver Rain is one of my favorites! With top notes of crisp green apple, verbena flower, and bergamot the scrumptious scent is always a conversation starter.
