Our favourite products that we have been using during December.
1. Lux Aestiva Gypsy Oil Rose Quartz
We have been loving this gorgeous shimmering dry oil! Not only is it great for all over the body for a subtle shimmer and hydration, we have also been using it as a base under our foundation for a dewy finish. It adds just a slight glow to the skin and helps the foundation glide on smoothly.
The best way to use it under the foundation is to apply a 1-2 drops to a damp blending sponge and press over the skin. Allow to absorb for a few minutes before applying foundation. If using your fingers to apply, press into the skin.
2. Wet N Wild Coloricon Bronzer - Reserve Your Cabana
Although this product is listed as a bronzer, it is actually too light to be used as a bronzer, however it makes the perfect shimmer powder! We have been using it over our decollatage and shoulders for a subtle glow this holiday season. If you aren't really into the over the top blinging highlighter trend, this would be great for you. Use it over the cheekbones to provide a very subtle glow to your face.
3. MUA Strobe & Glow Highlight Kit - Pearl Gold
The MUA Strobe & Glow Kits are amazing!! Consisting of a cream formula as well as a powder formula. The cream formula in the Pearl Gold is super sparkly, making it the perfect choice for special occasions, or just for a daily dose of fabulousness! The powder formula creates a subtle glow on the skin. We have been using the cream topped with the powder over the cheekbones and just the powder over the bridge of the nose and cupids bow.
4. MUA Elysium Palette
Natural shades are an essential in every makeup collection. This palette consists of 4 matte shades, 3 shimmer shades and 3 metallic shades. For best colour payoff the metallics should be applied by pressing on with your fingers. All 10 shades in this palette are gorgeous, however the stand outs are definitely the metallics! Cherub is a glamourous champagne colour, Astral is an amazing rose gold and Seraphic is a stunning gold.
5. Ooh Fabulous - Large Eyeshadow Brush
We have been loving soft eyeshadow looks this month, its elegant and leaves room for your lips to be the standout feature of your makeup, and we all know lips have definitely been apart of some of the biggest makeup trends of 2016! The large eyeshadow brush blends out eyeshadow like a dream!! Use to apply your base colour to the lid and browbone or to apply a wash of colour to the eyelid.
6. Gerard Cosmetics Lip Gloss - Buttercream
Lip Glosses are set to make a comeback in 2017. After a few years of matte liquid lipsticks dominating the lip arena, personally we are excited to see glosses making a comeback! Buttercream has been our staple this month, it is a beautiful creamy nude shade , that is perfection on its own or over your favourite lipstick.
7. Buddy Scrub - Activated Charcoal
This body scrub is ah-maz-ing!! It has been our favourite scrub this month with its refreshing peppermint smell and nourishing oils! There is nothing better then smooth silky skin for summer! Use it twice a week on the body and once a week on the face.
