The festive season is well upon us, which means a slew of parties, get-togethers and late-nights (possibly coupled with one too many glasses of champagne).
To combat (and prevent) such skin concerns, it is crucial to switch up your skincare regime and add some of the more targeted products for a healthier, more radiant complexion.
And since it is the yuletide season, looking your best at parties and events is a definite must.
So besides just taking care of your skin, here are some of the newest makeup products you need to look Insta-ready for the festivities.
Now in a limited edition gold casing embellished with a myriad of silver stars, this helps to brighten (and slightly conceal) different areas on the face such as the eye area, the hollow of the chin, the contour of the lips and the sides of the nose. And with its fuss-free pen-brush applicator, it is the best to use for touch-ups.
Another way to look good besides amping up your skincare routine? Get party-ready with a killer makeup look. For starters, opt for a bright and bold red lip colour. Not only does this come in the most gorgeous of reds, this Gucci lipstick has a glittery formula (it is reportedly made with three different types of glitter), which is coated with iridescent, sparkling pearls. Now, isn’t this what we call a party?
Damaged skin needs to be repaired and this new luxurious serum does exactly that by harnessing the powers of yquem botrytis cinerea, a precious living micro-organism that is said to be packed with antioxidants, as well as regenerative and healing properties.
The brand developed a unique bio-fermentation process to produce yquem extract.
Each bottle reportedly contains 100 per cent of this precious extract, which helps to repair, strengthen and fight signs of skin ageing.
Sleepless nights may eventually cause the skin around your peepers to appear tired-looking and lifeless.
This hydrogel eye sheet mask utilises the power of ginseng through a patented Steamed Ginseng Water Concentrate to impart moisture for plumper, firmer skin around the eyes.
It also aids in promoting collagen synthesis in the dermis to revitalise delicate skin for a healthier, more awake appearance. Bonus: it gives off a cooling effect.
The yuletide season calls for OTT makeup looks and one way to do that? Opt for daring eyeshadow shades you would not normally gravitate to on a daily basis.
This nine-shade palette features an array of cool-toned purple hues that would complement any party outfit and is sure to make your peepers pop.
An all-in-one face palette, this contains the brand’s best-sellers from its Ambient Lighting Powder (a finishing loose powder to set your makeup for the night) to its Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder (apply this on your nose bridge and cheekbones for a luminous, slightly iridescent glow).
This night cream targets dull and dehydrated complexions, which is likely to occur after multiple night outs. It is formulated with winter daphne stem cell extract, time-released retinol and red algae marigel to rejuvenate, improve and protect damaged skin. A Bionymph Peptide Complex is also infused to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and boost elasticity.
It is important to set your makeup before leaving for the festivities. This weightless, ultra-fine loose powder is made with a unique blend of silica that controls oil and gives a blurring effect to hide any visible pores. What’s not to love?
One of the most crucial steps you should never skip out on no matter how tired you are at the end of the day is cleansing. These oil capsules are super convenient and easy to use (plus, they are biodegradable). Magnolia officinalis bark extract work together with abyssinian oil and other botanical oils to soothe and treat redness; prevent skin ageing; boosts hydration levels; and regenerate tired complexions, which is bound to happen during the party season.
