Festive Beauty Picks
with all the parties and festive gatherings ahead, being sure of your perfect festive beauty routine and how to look your personal best is a must. with all the before Christmas stress adding up, I need to have my routine down and my favourite festive beauty products ready for quickly go from work to evening attire. it’s the time to go all out. glitter, red lips and fluttery lashes to pair with a sequin dress and your favourite pair of heels. it’s the most wonderful time of years and that also for dressing up and beauty routines.
because this time of year is so stressful, I love taking out time to relax and pamper myself. a brand i have been obsessed with lately because their scents are just so soothing and wholesome and they contain essential oils is kneipp. their bubble baths and shower creams are my favourite. besinnlichkeit contains vanilla, clove, orange and almonds and creates soft bubbles whilst smelling like the essence of Christmas. eingekuschelt smells of sandalwood and cardamom. it’s so warm and cosy and leaves me smelling oh so delicious for ages. if I want something more fun lush has to be the way to go. the luxury lush pud probably is the most colourful option but its just beautiful. my lips also seem to be suffering most this time of year and I had a mini lanolips ointment in my recent cult beauty order and let me tell you, its a game changer for my very dry lips.
now, let’s talk makeup: there’s one foundation I always find my way back to when its colder outside and its the Nars natural radiant long wear foundation. it just is what the name says and Nars foundations seem to work best for me. it provides enough coverage but also looks and feels light. it’s beautiful. I also can’t get enough of my hourglass ambient lighting palette. its the edit volume 4 and its a beauty. it contains everything I could need in life and hourglass powders just are what I want and need in life. the hourglass scattered light eyeshadows have been on my eyes constantly lately and whilst smoke is a very subtle shade, adding some gold glitter from NYX takes it from ordinary day to Christmas in a few seconds. lashes are obviously a must and the fleur loves lashes are my favourites right now. there are two lip options I like going for depending on how much food I plan to eat. My go-to Nude is Huda Beauty Bombshell and my favourite red lately has been mac viva glam Rihanna.
Finishing off with some diptyque eau duelle and I’m good to go.
