Tis the season to be jolly ! If you’ve been too busy working to enjoy the holidays and need a quick beauty fix, I’ve made a little compilation of my top makeup & beauty holiday picks to get you glammed up quick !
Starting off with skincare, cause we all know, beautiful skin tops the list every time.
Sunday Riley is a pretty new brand to hit the shelves and has been an instant hit amongst fashion weeks and celebrities. The Flora Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil clarifies, tones and instantly brightens up the skin and improves elasticity.
Glamglow THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment – this actually won the Elle International Beauty Awards 2014 ! This is extreme hydration in a jiffy ! If your skin needs a major pick me up, look no further, and slather the ThirstyMud Treatment for 10-20 mins, and sit back and let it work its magic.
Next stop is the makeup department so I added in my favorite holiday makeup products for this season.
Giorgio Armani Luminous FDT – I love GA FDT’s. Its one of the few brands that’s really cracked the perfect FDT code, now if it only didn’t break the bank ! The Luminous Silk FDT is exactly what it is. It’s like adding a layer of silk on top of your skin, absolutely gorgeous, and you can finish it off by buffing in NARS matte finish compact powder FDT on top with the Artis FACE brush. These brushes create an absolutely flawless airbrushed effect on the skin and blends the FDT seamlessly in.
It ain’t the holidays unless we add some party glow in, and yes that’s where the Hourglass highlighter palette comes in. If you’ve never used these highlighters, you’re missing out ! There’s none of that cheap glittery, big sparkly pigments found in most highlighters. In fact, their highlighters are super subtle yet strong enough to keep your skin glowing from a mile away.
I added the Tarte Showstopper Clay Palette, which is an infused eye and cheek palette. It has the perfect soft neutral smoky eye combo. The shades are light enough for a natural day look but can be built up for all that partying for your nights out. It includes a warm peach blush, bronzer and also a champagne pink highlighter. It’s a 3 in 1, I tell you !
 No eye makeup look is complete without some drama, so I added in the KAT VON D Tattoo Liner. You don’t want to look like you’ve hit by the bus when the lights turn on at a late party, and this eyeliner is absolutely smudge proof and waterproof !
I’ve been blown away by how amazing Givenchy mascaras are so these will be on my makeup must-haves list for a long time. You can never be glammed up enough, so top those perty lashes with a pair of Velour mink lashes. It’s all about 3D now, and these lashes are everything.
We all know that brows create the ultimate transformation so you simply can’t go wrong with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo with the slanted Angle Brow brush. It comes with a spooly at the end to tame those brows in place.
I’ve been loving what ABH has been coming out with their liquid lipsticks. Their shades are super pigmented and they stay put. Who has time to touch up when you’re having so much fun ???
Once you’re done, making that face look fabulous, spritz yourself with a makeup setting spray that actually does its job ! The Urban Decay All nighter is every makeup addict’s must have. They get their formulation from Skindinivia, which are the original creators for the Makeup Setting Spray in the industry.
Last but not least, don’t forget to show your nails some Essie love ! I love heading down to the White Spa at the Marina Mall for an express mani and pedi, express lush pampering at it’s finest.
If you’ve got a favorite holiday makeup essential, please share them with me. I’d love to know what rocks your makeup bag !
