Now if i was going out for NYE i would be prepping a few days before with face masks and self tanner. Then grabbing extra beauty items that i would only whip out on a fancy night out such as NYE, like a killer red lipstick and shimmer spray for sexy looking legs.. (i can at least try) ha.
The Night Before..
I thought this months Birchbox was brilliantly themed for the festive season, some of the bits i picked out would definitely be helping towards that ultra glam NYE look, such as the Roloxin Lift face mask..perfect for a pamper, pre party, skin prep (try saying that fast) this Roloxin face mask isn't cheap by any means at £50 a box it was one to save for an occasion. This facemask claims to be like botox in a mask form, giving a lifting effect while helping reduce wrinkles and pores.
The Madame LA LA Tan (mousse) in light, is the perfect kind of shade to give you that natural glow, i don't know about you but i always feel better, and more confident with a bit of a tan. Always a good idea to tan the night before, just so it gives time for the tan colour to settle once you have showered off the base colour. The Madame LA LA tan is filled with lots of skin loving ingredients such as coco water, green tea, aloe and vitamin E. It also lasts a good 10 days on the skin and makes you look like you spent 2 weeks on Malibu beach...yes please! -p.s I will be doing a full review on this real soon.
Add some sparkle to your manicure using the pretty, sparkly Ciate nail polish, which is also included in this months Birchbox. No NYE look would be complete without a bit of sparkle.
On the Night...
During this busy party season late nights, and the odd glass of Prosecco could possibly start taking its toll. The Benefit Puff Off eye cream which came in this months Birchbox will hide a multiple of sins by calming puffiness before you pop on that concealer. It will also make your peepers feel more refreshed.
No foundation base will sit right without some good skin prep, which is why the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre is perfect. I got this little sample in this months Birchbox but already owned the full size, i love using this as a moisturising primer, it makes foundation sit perfectly.
Personally no glam look would be so without some sexy, fluttery lashes. These ones by Threads Lashes would be perfect. The styles are a bit more out there than i would usually go for, but it will certainly make a statement. The Threads lashes in 'sex kitten' will give the appearance of sexy almond shape eyes whereas the 'be-bop' ones will give that bright, wide eye look. They have a thin bond which sits on the lid perfectly and bends to the shape of the eye with ease, while the lightness of them will make you feel like they are your own lashes.
Put the cherry on the cake and add a killer red lip to top off your makeup look. This red lipstick from Birchbox by Model Co. in the shade 'smitten' is the perfect deep, sultry red for that glamorous party look.
Then top off that Madame LA LA tan with a spritz of Sienna X shimmer spray to give your limbs a sexy sheen that catches the light perfectly. Instant glamour in a can. Its also the perfect size to take with you for touch ups on the go. What i like about this shimmer spray is that its not chunky glitters like you went mad with a Claire's Accessories glitter roller ball but its very subtle and looks more like a sheen.
Then finish off with a dab of Cathrine Malandrino perfume, which is a very sophisticated yet playful scent and the perfect size to pop in your glam BirchBAG from this months Birchbox which i thought was a lovely idea to include this over the usual box.
I just want to say hello to all my new readers, and a huge thank you to everyone who carry's on reading my blog. I wish you all lots of health and happiness in the new year!
Happy New Year!!
