The Christmas and holiday season is fast approaching and is a time of joy, festivities...
...and creating cherished memories with loved ones, a well-planned skincare and makeup routine can help you achieve a radiant holiday look that will have you feeling beautiful all season long.
1. Prepping the Canvas: Cleanse and Exfoliate
Begin by cleansing your face to remove any makeup or impurities. Follow up with a gentle exfoliation to slough away dead skin cells, leaving your skin smooth and ready for makeup application.
2. Hydration is Key: Moisturise
Apply a hydrating moisturiser to lock in moisture and create a smooth base for makeup. Make sure your skin is well-hydrated, especially during the dry winter months.
3. Eye on the Prize: Eye Cream
Don't forget the delicate skin around your eyes. Apply an eye cream to reduce puffiness and minimise the appearance of dark circles.
Makeup for a Festive Glow:
4. Flawless Foundation: Use a foundation that matches your skin tone for an even complexion. Opt for a long-wear formula to keep your makeup looking fresh throughout the festivities.
5. Cheeks Rosy as Rudolph's Nose: Blush and Highlighter
Apply a subtle blush to the apples of your cheeks for a healthy flush. Add a touch of highlighter to the high points of your face for a radiant glow.
6. Eye-Catching Eyes: Eyeshadow and Mascara
Create a festive eye makeup look with shimmery eyeshadows in holiday-inspired colours like gold, silver, or deep reds. Finish with mascara to make your lashes pop.
7. Perfect Your Pout: Lipstick or Lip Gloss
Choose a lip colour that complements your outfit and the holiday spirit. Red, berry, or metallic shades are popular choices.
8. Set It and Forget It: Setting Spray Lock your makeup in place with a setting spray to ensure it stays flawless throughout the day and night.
Holiday Skincare: After the Party is Over:
10. Remove Makeup Thoroughly: Don't forget to remove your makeup and cleanse your skin before bedtime to prevent breakouts and maintain healthy skin.
11. Nighttime Nourishment: Apply a nourishing night cream or serum to rejuvenate your skin while you sleep.
Remember, the most beautiful makeup is a healthy and well-cared-for canvas. So, take care of your skin, enjoy the festivities, and let your inner beauty shine brightly this holiday season.
