Getting ready for your Christmas party is about more than just picking an outfit and adding some accessories. Getting your skin ready and finding the perfect beauty products to help you do this is a part of it, as is getting the right hair products and make-up. So what are the best products in the beauty haul this year?
Preparing your skin for makeup is a crucial part of getting ready for Christmas events and starts sometime before a big night out. You need to establish a beauty routine using the best beauty products to get your skin in top condition. You also need to remember that your body needs care too and the Olay Quench is a great daily use to achieve a flawless looking skin. It is sheer enough to use every day while still giving a big hit of moisture to leave skin supple and soft.
For a toning lotion, the Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile is said to be everything that is needed from a toner. It soothes the product and cools it without drying it out and is also alcohol free so works for even sensitive skin types. This is a great beauty buy.
When you read black fashion magazines in London, you will often notice that Estee Lauder gets a mention because it works equally well on black and Caucasian skins. Their DayWear moisturiser is an advanced multi-protection cream that also has anti-oxidants and even SPF 15 in the rare chance we get some sunshine. It has a non-greasy texture and is the perfect base for makeup as it is absorbed quickly.
Getting the right foundation is the first step to your makeup and the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation is ranked by ELLE as top of the list. This foundation offers a perfect coverage and creates a flawless complexion.
The biggest draw with the Grandiose Mascara from LANCOME is the swan neck and angled brush that comes with it, allowing you to get the maximum amount of lashes every time. It is also supreme at lengthening lashes.
My personal favourite beauty product is MAC and their range of products is extensive that everyone will find the perfect match for their style. They currently have a holiday section on their website to show off some seasonal styles.
Our beauty haul list will not be complete without hair secrets. Picking the perfect shampoo is about knowing your hair type. Once you have the perfect shampoo then a boost is never a bad idea, such as the Carol’s Daughter Healthy Hair Butter. This uses cocoa and shea butters to give hair a moisture boost but there’s no silicone to drag hair down.
If you style your hair a lot, then a conditioner that helps repair this damage is essential and the Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Conditioner is a great choice for both cocaisian and Afro hair type. This product is a mixture of six different oils and can undo the damage from months of styling with heat in a single use.
If you like hair styles with the effect of backcombing but don’t like the actual process, then the Keratase VIP or Volume In Powder is the product to go for. Described as a combination of dry shampoo and a texture spray, this allows you to get the effect of back combing without causing damage to your hair. Have fun when getting your beauty game on.
