New Years Eve Organic Beauty Essentials
New Years Eve is just around the corner, so I thought I would round up some of the essential organic beauty products you need to help get you into the party mood! A night out on the town is not for everyone, so even if you are cosying up on the sofa in your slippers to see in the New Year, I have also rounded up my favourite pamper products so you can start 2018 feeling fresh and glowing.
For the Party Gals...
Using a palette with multiple products is perfect for a New Year's party. You can chuck it in your bag for touch ups in between champagne top ups, and it will take up minimal room in your clutch bag. This palette from ZAO Makeup has the most stunning sparkly eyeshadows for a New Years Eve makeup look. Use the gold and silver shades on the eyes, line the top lash line with the black cake eyeliner, and add a touch of colour to the cheeks and lips with the red and pink cream colours. It even comes with its own brush so you wont need to worry about forgetting yours. Watch our YouTube video tutorial featuring this palette.
When it comes to choosing a lipstick for a night out, it's usually best to go for a matte texture as these tend to last much longer. The new Couleur Caramel lipsticks (Shades 120 through to 126) are available in bright, bold colours with a pure matte finish so they will hold up through hours of eating, drinking and dancing! Pair with a smokey eye, winged liner and tons of highlighter for a statement, party ready look.
This soft, blendable pencil creates that sexy, smouldering look that suits everyone. Simply scribble the pencil into the roots of the lashes, top and bottom, and then smudge with the handy sponge tip included in the lid for a smokey eye in seconds. Finish with a little sparkling eyeshadow on the lid, lashings of mascara, a bright lipstick.
Let's face it, no party look is complete without a shimmering, illuminating highlighter. This powder highlighter will give you glowing cheekbones for a light reflecting finish and enviably flawless skin. The velvety powder can be dusted onto the eyes, cheekbones, cupids bow and bridge of the nose. It feels lightweight, beautifully soft and gives an ethereal glow to your makeup, perfect for one of the biggest nights of the year!
For the Pamper Princess
Seeing in the New Year bleary eyed after one too many champagne flutes and talking nonsense to strangers certainly isn't for everyone. So if you are more of a stay at home in your pj's and slippers, sipping hot chocolate and watching the countdown on the telly, these products are for you...
After all the Christmas festivities are over, your skin will be begging for a detoxifying mask to help rid itself of the over indulgence that has no doubt occurred over the past few days. This mineral powder mask will give your skin a really effective deep cleanse with Bentonite Clay, Activated Charcoal and Kaolin to draw out impurities. Tea Tree essential oil and Willow Bark extract will also help heal and reduce the size of any pesky blemishes that might have popped up! Mix a teaspoon of powder to a little warm water to make a paste, then smooth over skin, sit back and relax and let the organic ingredients work their magic to revive and refresh your skin.
We are all prone to being a little lazy with our skincare routines when late nights and social occasions fill our calendars. But this can lead to a build up of excess sebum, causing breakouts and dull skin. It's worth taking some time after the holidays to de-clog and clear out pores in a gentle way. This face cleansing brush has 400,000 extremely fine synthetic fibres that deep cleanse the pores and prevents blemishes. Suitable for all skin types, this brush helps to clear blackheads and provides antibacterial properties to prevent breakouts, whilst leaving the skin looking clear and radiant.
Your legs may not be the centre of attention during the cold, winter weather, but you'll want to keep taking good care of them if you have this heavenly body scrub to hand. It smells like a tropical paradise, and leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth like silk. Tahitian Monoi oil moisturises the skin and contains restorative and relaxing properties, whilst organic sugar is used to slough away dead skin cells and reveal radiant skin.
This organic self tanning cream is perfect for adding into your New Year's Eve pamper session. Apply to clean, dry, shaved and exfoliated skin and leave on for up to 8 hours before rinsing for a deep, rich, golden tan. Enter the new year looking bronzed, glowing and full of confidence to go out there and achieve your dreams for 2018.
