Winter Beauty Updates

With endless Christmas parties, events, festive nights out it’s always a wonderful time to start experimenting with your look. Eyes can get smokier, lips can get redder and nails can get more glittery without being mistaken for a runaway Vegas showgirl. I’m totally channelling the Addicted to Love video vixens for the holidays, even if it is for gingerbread house building with my mom-friends.

Burberry Festive Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Foundation

Burberry Festive Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Foundation

Burberry’s Festive Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Foundation (let’s try and go for a shorter name next time guys) provides an ethereal luminosity to the skin. This is the perfect addition to any holiday make-up routine. It gives weather worn skin a gentle glow and an instant boost of health. This can be worn alone on no-makeup days with a quick dot of concealer under the eyes or under a full face of glam for red-carpet worthy radiant skin. This is limited edition so don’t mess around umm-ing and ahh-ing over this guy.

La Mer Soft Fluid Foundation

So while we are on the topic of creating the perfect base, I wouldn’t be a good beauty blogger if I didn’t discuss what has quickly become my favourite foundation. La Mer’s Soft Fluid Foundation has quite quickly become my go-to foundation. It has a medium coverage which is buildable but feels like you have nothing but a light layer of moisturiser on your face. Because this is by La Mer (and might I add costs an arm and a leg) this provides moisture for the skin, minimises pores and provides a boost of antioxidants for beautiful skin once the foundation comes off.

Dior Diorific Long-Wearing True Colour Lipstick Fascination

This colour would normally scare the living daylights out of me. It would be a whim purchase that would end up in a drawer because I couldn’t get away from using on of my million nude lipsticks. That is until now. Fascination is a vampy, purple in a matte finish that can be built up from a stain to a lacquered show-stopper of a pout. If this shade is too severe for you, Chanel’s Luminous Matte Lip Colours come in beautiful festive shades.

Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Lipcolor

Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Lipcolor (Limited Edition)

Another limited edition Christmas shade in the most festive red in town. Unlike the Dior lipstick the Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain is in a satin finish that leaves lips looking ultra hydrated, plump and moisturised. It has a slight sheen making this my top pick for New Years Eve. This is quite possibly the best true red shade I own that I’ve already ordered a backup.

Guerlain Souffle d’Or de Shalimar Iridescent Powder for Hair & Body

Guerlain Souffle d'Or de Shalimar Iridescent Powder for Hair & Body

This is quite possibly one of the most beautiful beauty products that I own. It’s a scented spray that adds a youthful sheen to the skin and hair. Spray this on your shoulders when wearing a strapless dress at a holiday party or throughout tousled waves for a sun kissed sheen and a light scent. Souffle d’Or de Shalimar would make a magnificent Christmas present or a Monday-afternoon lunch break pick-me-up.
