The Missy Edit: Festive Beauty

With Christmas parties and festive gatherings on the horizon we’ve lined up our favourite festive beauty picks to have you ready for any occasion this Holiday Season.

Skin Prep

We’re all about the base. If you want your makeup to look all kinds of awesome it’s important to look after your skin. The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a wonderful staple to combat dull, uneven skin. The pink, turkish delight scented gel transforms into an oil as you massage it onto your skin. The pumpkin enzymes and vitamins work to cleanse, soften and restore leaving you with a radiant and smooth complexion. We love the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate at this time of year. It helps keep your skin nourished during the cold weather. It’s also great at keeping those annoying under the skin spots at bay. Finish off with a moisturiser like Nip+fab Teen Skin Zero Shine Moisturiser which helps to prevent excess oil build-up and breakouts.

Nail Envy

It feels essential to wear as much glitter as possible throughout December. Essie Glitter Nail Polish is probably our favourite! But we also love Barry M Glitter Nail Paint, and Rimmel Glitter High Coverage Nail Polish.

Foundations Matter

A dreamy base is always #goals and we think we finally have the perfect combination down. The BECCA First Light Priming Filter helps to diffuse harsh light to give skin a healthy looking glow. The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation glides on like a dream, and literally feels like a second skin. It’s perfect if your skin needs just a bit of perfecting. If you struggle with a frustrating issue like acne or rosacea, Magic Foundation will give you perfect looking skin. NYX Professional Makeup Nyx Cosmetics Concealer Wand is a great DUPE for some of the really expensive concealers on the market, but for a fraction of the cost.

Shimmering Shadows

When it comes to festive eyeshadow give us all of the shimmering shades. We love Stila Smudge Pot, a sparkly iridescent colour and Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise Marie Antoinette, a soft shimmery gold. Chances are you probably have some other shimmering shades in your makeup palettes! We’re always reaching for Vermeer in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette. Finish it off with a flick of liquid liner. As always our favourite is the Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eye Liner in Black.

Bold Lips

It’s not really Christmas without rocking a bright red lip at least once during December. The Nars Cruella is a gorgeous Christmassy red lip. It’s creamy on application, dries to a matte finish and lasts for hours on the lips. Another choice is the MAYBELLINE Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in Rebel Red.

Finishing Touches

Lastly for the finishing touches, on cheeks, we’ve pulled out our favourite festive rosy blusher Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush for shimmery, flushed cheeks. Collection 2000 Collection Contour Stick is perfect for all your contouring needs. For highlighter, Peach Smoothie in the Sosu by SJ Highlighter Kit, an iridescent, shimmering golden peach highlighter is our top choice to give you that candlelit, luminous glow.
