Beauty is only skin deep, of course, but that doesn’t mean you need to put up with a pasty complexion and wild, untamed eyebrows if you don’t want to! Likewise, no one wants to look like they’ve gone ten rounds with their contour brush and tweezers and lost the fight! So, this February, we’re taking a look at great ways to keep your beauty routine fresh and natural – with a minimum of fuss. It’s time to put your best face forward with our 5 steps to fresh-faced heaven.
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. It really is the golden rule of skincare and there’s not much out there to beat Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Daily Moisturiser with SPF15. This wonderfully hydrating concoction is just the thing for treating your skin in the depths of the winter, as the cold and wind can dry your skin right out. What’s more, it does double-duty for the warmer months too, with an SPF of 15 to help protect your skin from the damage of UV rays.
Get the right tone. This fresh look is all about working with your natural facial tone and structure – nail this and you’re winning. The secret is not to overdo things but, instead, to keep it minimal so that only you know you’re wearing anything on your skin. This Contour Compact from Contour Cosmetics has a delicious palette of six creamy tones to choose from, meaning that you can use the darker tones to add definition around the cheekbones and jawline whilst the lighter ones are perfect for highlighting areas like the brow.
Define your brow. Don’t ignore your eyebrows – they are one of the most effective ways of framing the features and lifting the eyes. Make sure yours are in fine form with this Sleek Brow Kit, which comes with everything you could possibly need for beautiful brows.
The eyes have it. Enhance your fabulous peepers with this delicate yet high precision carbon black telescopic mascara by L’Oreal Paris, guaranteed to make your lashes longer by up to 60% whilst keeping them individually and cleanly defined. Combined with your sleek brows, this is a classic look.
Keep the lips simple. Think glossy and light-reflective when it comes to your lips. Elizabeth Arden’s Beautiful Colour Lipgloss in Sweet Pink is just the right shade and texture to set this look off perfectly whilst keeping your lips beautifully hydrated and soothed without a hint of stickiness.
And there you have it, your formula for a Fresh-Faced February! Be sure to check Littlewoods’ fabulous Beauty Shop often for more delicious treats to keep you glowing and glam, all year round!
