DIY - Get Glowing

'Tis the season for dry and dull skin:( The weather, combined with holiday stresses and later-than-usual nights, leaves our skin in a state of misery. Fortunately, there are natural ways to achieve a quick, much-needed, glow! Even better, most of these ingredients are already in our kitchen! 



Honey:
Use honey to not only cleanse and polish your skin but also to exfoliate extreme dry skin this winter.

Lemon: 
Mix lemon juice along with cucumber juice and use it as a face/body mist to cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin naturally.

Pineapple: 
Cut a small piece of pineapple and apply it all over your face, leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse off to treat dull skin.

Aloe Vera: 
Use aloe vera as a face and body mask to restore moisture to your skin.

Yogurt: 
It not only brightens your face but also exfoliates your skin for a radiant glow.

Tomato: 
The best way to instantly bring back the glow to your dull skin is to rub a slice of tomato on your skin.

Copper That

If you're after fancy festive nails, you must do copper this season. These warm, luminescent hues aren't too flashy, but totally on trend. Here are a few polishes you might want to request to your nail technician.

Essie - The Cove Copper


OPI -  Pros & Bronze (love the name!)



RGB - Copper


If you opt for a home manicure, it's crucial to buff your nails prior to application. Also, three thin coats are better that one thick one! For a matte look, finish off with OPI Matte Top Coat:)

Holiday Reds

I can't believe holiday parties are beginning to appear on my calendar! Where did November go?!! With so much to do and so little time (already!), I thought I would put together a quick post for those wanting red lip inspiration. There is no better season for red lips!




MAC Ruby Woo
Ruby Woo is all that and then some. It's THE prettiest cool-toned matte red around! I’ve been using it for (almost) two decades now, and that is not a lie.




Urban Decay F-Bomb
The name says it all. Great shade. Great formula. Great pigmentation. Easy to find. Perfection.



MAC Russian Red
This is probably my favourite red lipstick on earth. The red is so rich and insanely classic. I really can’t say enough about this shade and it's finish. Utterly fabulous.




NYX Pure Red
This is a perfect tomato-red shade and the price is spot-on. The formula is really nice; it doesn’t feel cheap and it’s comfortable to wear.



I hope these four power shades help you feel less overwhelmed when shopping for your holiday lip. If you are going to finally step out of your neutral-lip comfort zone, 'tis the season!
