December is here and who doesn't LOVE the holidays?!?! The festive time of year is perfect to share my, “December to Remember” beauty favs! Enjoy!
Let's begin with Skincare. Dermalogica has an incredible ‘Charcoal Rescue Masque’ that’s an-all-in-one for every skin type. Woohoo! It supports lackluster skin by absorbing impurities, promoting cell turnover, exfoliating and helping to refine pores. It’s fab for rejuvenating skin after all the holiday parties. :)
This product is paraben free and you only have to use it once a week!
Eyeshadow Party Time
Next up are two glorious eyeshadow palettes. One says business and the other says party! Now, I know that a lot of you are not into the dazzle of sparkle or are a bit timid about using shadows with glitter and Sigma has the answer! With just the right touch of shimmer, their phenomenal shadow palette is wonderful for all winter fun. Go for the, ‘Warm Neutral’ shadow palette, it's delightful, suitable for every skin tone and the texture is MONEY!
You can stay really natural with these colors or play them up for a bolder look!
Urban Decay Drama
The ‘MoonDust’ party palette from Urban Decay offers almost galactic looking colors and is awesome as a highlight on the eye or for a dramatic makeup look. If you like colors that pop, this is your happy place shadow palette!
Great to spice up the holiday makeup magic for any and all holiday functions!
The famous Anastasia of Beverly Hills now carries a beauty line extremely popular with makeup artists. The concealers are hydrating and long wearing and come in a million different shades. Perfect for camouflaging the tell all signs of the night before Christmas...wink wink! You can wear it as a concealer or blend it out more to use as a foundation. It's a winner either way.
MAC has a matte lip palette called ‘Lip x 6’ with some of their popular lipstick shades like ‘Ruby Woo.’ This is a mix specifically for the FALL/WINTER. Great colors that range from neutral to powerful. Your lips will not disappoint wearing any of these shades.
Glad Girl Goodness
Glad Lash has a dual ended brush that is a MUST HAVE in my kit. One side is an angled brush for eyebrows or for gel or liquid liners and the other side is a mascara wand brush tip/spooley to help comb your brows or lashes in place. A two in one for a hole-in-one! Done and Done. Glad Lash strip Lashes in ‘BELLE’ are one of my all-time favs. They fan out and give a butterfly effect. These will create drama without being over the top. They look like several cluster lashes put together to add natural length and volume.
Adding these fun lashes to any makeup look is a gift in and of itself!
Lastly, the panoramic mirror from Glad Lash is definitely a must have. Multi-angled to give any user a more impactful glimpse at their beautiful makeup, lashes, brows...and more! A great travel partner if you are a professional! Focus on these December favs for a fab beauty moment!
