We all want to look our best during the holidays, whether for family photos, parties with friends or just because. It’s a great time to step out of your normal beauty routine and try something glamorous, be it a new hairstyle or glam makeup. Everything seems to sparkle this time of year, so why shouldn’t you? Read on to discover some ingredients that can add a little pizzazz to your look.
Body oils and lotions that add a luster typically contain mica or crushed minerals. L’Occitane Cherry Blossom Shimmering Lotion contains titanium dioxide and mica and will leave your skin soft, supple and with the soft scent of cherry blossoms. If a golden sheen is more your style, NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil-Shimmer will leave you with a beautifully subtle golden shimmer. Iridescent Vitamin E particles add sparkle and the unique super-activated formula combines 30% precious plant oils and vitamin E to help nourish and soften the body, face and even the hair.
We often turn to cosmetics to infuse a little glamour into our look. The crushed minerals in loose and pressed powder foundations provide a natural luminosity, but if you really want to kick it up a notch, Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust-Champagne contains mica and 24-karat gold leaf. Use this versatile powder on cheeks, eyes and lips for a delicate luster. You can also mix it into your moisturizer and apply to your décolleté or even mix it with your favorite hair gel. Mica, titanium dioxide and iron oxides lend their brilliance to bareMinerals Hollywood Glamour Collection for Eyes for a finishing that will compete with any decorations.
