4 Ways To Beauty Prep For The Holidays

Get your beauty look on point this festive season

While a season packed with endless parties and get-togethers may be fun, these various cocktail soirées are also going to be filled with fizzy drinks and sinful food indulgences, which can really take a toll on your skin.

Just like how you ought to prepare your wardrobe essentials to turn yourself into party-ready perfection, your complexion needs a little beauty prep too to endure the numerous festive and late-night parties. So keep reading below for the best ways you can prepare your beauty regimen, and yourself, for the holiday season.

Add punch to your existing regimen

The key to any great holiday makeup look is a flawless canvas underneath, i.e. smooth and even skin. That's why, besides using a cleanser and a moisturiser, you should add more potent products to your routine to get the most out of a short period of time. Before going in with the SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream, dab the Facial Treatment Essence all over your face and neck to replenish your skin’s moisture, and improve its appearance and texture. If you have an oilier or more acne-prone skin, make sure to grab a bottle of Facial Treatment Clear Lotion for its mixture of AHAs and Pitera. It removes dead skin cells and impurities, ensuring that the rest of your skincare routine will be able to penetrate deeper and more effectively.

If you're in the mood to give yourself a pampering session, use the Facial Treatment Mask to restore your skin's glow — the perfect way to relax and unwind before you head to the party. 

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

Combine the cool weather with stress, lack of sleep, one too many drinks, and it’s hello to a dry and dehydrated complexion. So make sure you constantly keep your body, especially your skin, hydrated during this time of the month with LANEIGE’s Essential Balancing Emulsion_Moisture, Water Bank Essence, Water Bank Moisture Cream, and the beloved Water Sleeping Mask.

Soft, plumped up skin that lasts all day and night, even under a dry and air-conditioned environment? Yes, please!

Play with colour

‘Tis the season for bold eyes and lips! To achieve your party makeup look in under five minutes, simply smoke out your eyeshadow using the Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow Palette by defining your lower lash line and outer V with their deeper shades. Next, layer on coats of the Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara for a lash look that’s extraordinarily long, defined, and smudge-proof.

Swipe on the Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush on your cheeks for an enhanced radiant glow, and the Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick for a beautifully-shaped and pigmented pout that's soft, smooth and pucker-ready for your kiss under the mistletoe.

Make your best features pop

During the holidays, nothing slays like a good feline flick paired with rosy cheeks and a glowing complexion. To cop the look, start by using the CLINIQUE Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector & Optimizer to reduce the appearance of blemishes and dark spots for a brighter look. This will help get rid of any pigmentation you might have from previous breakouts.

Follow up with the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief to give your skin that dewy, lit-from-within finish. Then, proceed to apply your base makeup as usual, making sure to create that "just-pinched" look with a Cheek Pop blush to get that base look down pat. After filling in your brows and defining your eyes and lashes, take the Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen and draw your flick. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert in tight-lining, this mistake-proof pen will allow you to create a clean and sharp line in one glide.
