Top tips on how to get selfie ready
With Christmas just around the corner it's time to start thinking about handbags and glad rags. With all the parties on your calendar there's never been a more important time of year to look your best. to get yourself camera ready for all the festive selfies you'll be taking here's some tips you wont want to miss.
Revitalise your skin
Face peel solutions you can use at home are great for getting glowing, smooth skin. Dr Marko PHA+ Bio-peel resurfacing face pads (£65 at Net-a-Porter) are a great investment for party ready skin.
Your skin loves moisture
To avoid your skin looking flat use a non greasy moisture to add hydration. Moisturised skin looks far better in the light then dry flaky skin! I recommend Fresh Peony brightening moisture face cream (£56 at Harrods).
It's all about the glow factor
Use a foundation that has a dewy glow effect to give a flawless effect. I love Clarins True Radiance (£25.20 at John Lewis) which is perfect for evening and illuminating skin.
All year round tan
Whilst looking like a English rose is great for some occasions, a Christmas party probably isn't one of them. Bronzers are perfect for adding a subtle glow and contour to the skin and make you look even lovelier in pictures. Trystal Mineral Vita Liberata (£35 at Feel Unique) is a bronzing powder that gives a instant makeup effect whilst subtly tanning your skin too. Perfect if you're not a fan of facial tanning products. No biscuit smell either. Win win!
Flutter those lashes!
No makeup look is complete without gorgeous fluttering lashes. My current favourite has to be Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes (£25 at Selfridges) - it perfectly defines without clumping and leaves a lovely natural looking curl.
Finding that perfect lipstick is not as easy as it looks despite the thousands of products on the market. My favourite show stopping lipstick has to be Charlotte Tilbury Love Bite (£23 at Net-a-Porter) - a gorgeous bold red.
