As the winter season intensifies and we find ourselves in December already, the anticipation for the festive and party season only grows. Later this month, we have Christmas and the New Year, which means there will be a lot of parties and celebrations. There’s nothing quite as exciting as dressing up in the winter season. Along with your coats, hats and gloves, your makeup, too, plays an instrumental role in getting you party-ready.
I have compiled a list of 7 beauty essentials that are going to make this winter festive season much more exciting for you!
1. Red Lipstick:
Nothing speaks the festive and party season louder than a fabulous red lipstick. You can pick either a matte formula or a glossy one, depending on your preference. Wearing a bold red lipstick will instantly make you feel party-ready. For the winter season, you could also switch this up with a berry or burgundy hue.
Recommendation: MAC Relentlessly Red.
2. Gold/Metallic Eyeshadow:
A dazzling gold or bronze eyeshadow or one with a metallic finish is such a festive-season staple. Save your basic neutrals for the everyday, and bring out those bold, warm eyeshadows for the party season.
Recommendation: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze
A gorgeous highlighter on the tops of your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and on your cupid’s bow can make all the difference to how you look. By picking the right shade of highlighter for your skin tone, you can recreate the ‘lit from within’ look this party season.
Recommendation: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector
A good bronzer can make a big difference in giving you that healthy, radiant look. As Indians, we often tend to omit bronzer from our makeup routine, but when it comes to festive makeup, bronzer plays a key role in giving you that gorgeous sculpted look.
Recommendation: The Body Shop Honey Bronzer
If you haven’t yet invested in a good primer, now is the time to do so. Primers are often underrated in their importance. A good primer will not only help your makeup last perfectly through the long hours of celebration, but it will also help the makeup apply and sit flawlessly and evenly on the skin.
Recommendation: Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
6. Oil-based Makeup Remover:
The festive season means that you’ll be wearing heavy makeup on most days. This makes it all the more important for you to pick an oil-based cleanser or makeup remover that will break down and remove every trace of makeup from your skin at the end of the day. Being oil-based, it will ensure not to irritate your skin or strip it of moisture.
Recommendation: Forest Essentials Cold-pressed coconut oil
7. An Ultra-hydrating Moisturizer:
As part of your skincare during the winter season, a deeply nourishing moisturizer is a must, especially if you’re wearing makeup often. This will help the makeup sit better on your skin and will replenish and restore your skin regularly.
Recommendation: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer
All you need is a handful of products to look your best this festive season! So, go ahead, give this a shot, and have a great time.
