The festive season is approaching fast and we’re all gonna be busy managing work, home decor and of course, some drop dead gorgeous outfits. But while you’re planning your festive outfits, why not give your beauty essentials an upgrade as well? Trying some new eyeshadow trends and experimenting with natural glowy makeup will be super easy if you’ve got the right festive makeover kit by your side. So here’s bringing some of our essentials for festive glam this season, for every occasion and look!
Long Wear Essentials
With the humid weather and lots of running around to do, your base should be long-lasting and matte to make sure there’s no looking like a greaseball. Maybelline Face Studio Master Redness Control Primer will give you an even toned base so that your foundation doesn’t end up looking patchy and it also blurs out pores and spots. Chambor Extreme Matte Long Wear Foundationhas a hydrating formula and we particularly love as it can last through sweat, oil and practically anything!
The Soft Glam
For a soft glam eyeshadow look, start by creating a thin, winged eyeliner with The Revlon Colorstay Exactify Liquid Eyeliner to give the eyes some definition. For the eyeshadow, choose Colorbar Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette Nude followed by some shimmer and glitter to build that glam. Use a soft rose or light brown shade as the base, building in the deeper browns and peaches into the crease. If you’re up for trying some new eyeshadow trends, add a final dab of metallic eyeshadow to the inner corner and over the eyelid. Don’t forget to lock in the drama with a heavy dose of Lakme Eyeconic Mascara
The Dusty Rose Shine
Building a natural glowy makeup look is all about a look you can wear from day to night, with western and ethnic outfits. The one thing that never goes out of shine is rosy cheeks and we love the Myglamm Chisel It Contour Kit with a gorgeous pink that works across skin tones. Dab some on the apples of your cheeks and if you’re going for that innocently flushed look, add some colour to the tip of your nose too. Bronze at the temple and the jawline, if you’re planning to take your mask off! We’re skipping the usual gold highlighter because we found the best drugstore highlighter ever .An ethereal glow with the Myglamm Magic Potion in a super easy roll on formula!
We might be wearing masks this festive season but we’re not ditching our lipsticks for anything. If anything, we’re taking them to the next level with Sugar Seal The Show Lip Primer that hydrates lips, prevents cracks and also prevents feathering of the colour. Follow it up with The Revlon Endless Spice Colorstay Overtime Lipcolor which is a glossy, yet smudge proof lipstick! Yes, that’s a thing and we love it even more for this beautiful brown toned nude that’s flattering for every skin tone.<
Skipping on Salons
The pandemic keeping you away from your favourite hair stylist this festive season? When you’ve got a multi styling hair appliance, you don’t need them because you can create tons of
quick hairstyles with Philips 5 in 1 Multi Style Hair Curler. For us, natural curls at home and waterfall braids have always been our festive favourite as a beauty essential.
Festive season glam is all about being glowy, fun and just a tad bit dramatic. With these beauty essentials, you can achieve both understated elegance and make a rebellious statement, topped up with a quick hairstyle, so grab your makeup brushes and your mirror because we’re going to town in glam!
