Before you start your party makeup: what about the basics? Only when your skin is healthy, even and glowy will you get that perfect look. This way, you get radiant skin that is completely ready for a party!
Have you chosen a festive makeup look for year-end? All you have to do is provide a good basis to apply your look too. With this handy mini manual, you ensure radiant skin before, during and after the parties!
For the holidays
The end of the year is usually a busy period, both at work and privately. No matter how well you’ve planned everything, you probably won’t escape some pre-party stress … and you often see that in your skin. The stress hormone cortisol can make your skin more sensitive and irritate. If you want radiant skin later, you’ll take back some gas in time. Relax! You can unwind all the irritated spots with Calming 10 Balm from Indeed Labs or Cocoon Genius Balm from Ioma.
Stress also reduces the production of hyaluronic acid, making your skin drier and duller. What your skin needs now is care that brings back the shine. Try Lift-Structure Radiance from Filorga or Nutri-Lumière Jour from Clarins: they make your skin smoother and provide radiant skin.
With a mask, you give yourself and your skin a breather. Sylvie’s Gold Radiant Glow Face Mask by Le Masque and BB Shot Mask by Erborian refine the skin grain and give a firming boost: ideal just before the holidays!
Suddenly popping up red spots? Here, too, stress is the culprit. Your lifesaver is Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+ from IT Cosmetics. It contains light-reflective pigments, works colour-correcting and immediately gives you bright, radiant skin.
During the holidays
Even though we celebrate the December festivities less lavishly than usual this year, of course, they do not pass by completely unnoticed. Maybe you’re drinking an extra glass of bubbly; maybe you’re getting a little too little sleep. Especially the thin, delicate skin around your eyes reveals that it has been cosy…
Because you want to look fresh and rested again, you now apply to cool and desalinate eye cream such as Gingembre Revitalisant Ice-Cold Eye Cream from Kenzoki. Tip: keep your eye cream in your fridge this month so that the cold provides an extra moisture-wicking stimulus. The metal massage spatula from Cellular Performance Lifting Eye Cream from Sensai also stimulates the drainage of lymph fluid.
Because all those festive cocktails dehydrate your skin and body, it is smart to provide some extra moisture supply. Start the day with a large glass of water and add a moisturizing cream to your beauty routine. Super Aqua-Lotion from Guerlain and Hydrating Moisturizer from Clay And Glow invigorate your skin and give you well hydrated, radiant skin.
Do you need another last-minute boost to make your skin shine again? Then Divine Sensation Face Beauty Spray by Beaudelor is your salvation. Fine particles of gold and cashmere give your skin a subtle, natural glow. Please put it in your bag for a quick, intermediate touch-up!
After the holidays
When the holidays are over, you naturally want to start the new year with a clean slate. So it’s time for a thorough detox. With Bio Detoxifying Mask from Nuxe or Oxygen Glow Super Perfection Radiance Cream from Filorga, you can remove the toxins that have been left behind during the festive month and provide a bite of fresh air. Your skin transforms from extinguished to refreshed.
Have you made a list of New Year’s resolutions yet? Be sure to put the use of an enlightening serum on it as well. It’s only when your skin looks even and smooth, with no visible pigmentation spots, that you look as young as you are. Sisleÿa Radiance Anti-Aging Concentrate by Sisley and ID Booster Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion from Clinique will help you to give your skin its youthful appearance back. So you can easily keep up with this New Year’s resolution!
