What could be luckier than the perfect red lipstick? Found in beautiful, highly pigmented shades, our Beauty Advisors have hand-picked the best reds to complete your Lunar New Year look. An exciting new satin-finish red from Lise Watier, the Baiser Satin in Red Hot Kiss has the ultimate intense, rich finish that lipstick lovers dream of, and would make a beautiful statement for Lunar New Year.
A pampering face mask is the perfect way to indulge in a New Year skincare routine! Providing some of the great benefits of a spa facial, face masks can draw out impurities, eliminate dead cells, or tighten and tone.
The restorative powers of precious oils make them a special treat for your tired skin. Made from 100% pure plant extracts, the Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil is a natural astringent for oily or combination skin, and also soothes and seals in moisture to prevent fine lines, while refining the skin’s texture.
Whether you’re planning on a hot date or a night out with your best friends, Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to have some fun with your makeup routine. This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to get doll-like lashes and a bold matte lip for a sweet yet sultry look. Our Beauty Advisor Amanda has handpicked the best products to use, with both budget-friendly and splurge-worthy options, so you can look gorgeous no matter what your budget is!
If you consider yourself a beginner at nail art, this is a simple tutorial to get you started! Beauty Advisor Amanda shows us how to achieve a pretty, shimmery silver and gold ombre manicure with the Red Carpet Manicure Starter Kit and a selection of their LED Gel Nail Polishes.
The New Year is a time to look back on the past year, reminisce and maybe resolve to make positive changes. That includes ditching bad beauty habits. London Drugs Beauty Advisors have rounded up the top beauty resolutions from developing a good skincare regimen to tossing expired makeup.
Invest in a good skincare regimen
It’s time to take better care of your skin. This year, invest in a quality skincare regimen that will keep your skin healthy and looking great. NeoStrata’s Glycolic Renewal and Night Repair creams will exfoliate dead skin cells for more radiant and younger looking skin. If you have dry, sensitive, or acne-prone skin, try one of Bioderma’s skincare lines which will target your specific skin concern.
Sometimes we cheat and leave our makeup on before going to sleep. It happens. Wake up in the morning, though, and your skin is left dry, dull and you may even have a blemish or two. Resolve to always take offyour makeup using a good makeup remover, like Bioderma’s Micelle Solution.
For an even easier solution, keep a pack of Marcelle Makeup remover cloths on your bedside table. That way, even on your laziest nights, you can quickly wipe off that makeup and go to bed with a clean face.
Organize beauty products
If your vanity is beginning to overflow with lipsticks, powders and polishes, it’s time to get organized once and for all. A cosmetics organizer with storage compartments for all your makeup will keep things from
getting cluttered, and it’ll be easier to find what you’re looking for too.
Stop biting your nails
It’s time to kick the nasty habit of biting your nails this year. A fresh manicure using the Red Carpet Manicure Starter Kit can help curb your nail biting and give your nails the chance to grow. The at-home gel manicure system with portable LED light creates salon-quality manicures that will stay chip-free for weeks.
Dirt and bacteria accumulate in your makeup brushes and can cause breakouts if you don’t clean your brushes often enough. Every 2 weeks is a good rule of thumb for cleaning them. Place a drop of Real Techniques’ Brush Cleansing Gel onto their Brush Cleansing Palette, dip your brush into warm water, and then sweep away makeup, oil and impurities from the bristles using the Cleansing Palette. Once your brushes are clean, rest the brushes across the surface of the Cleansing Palette to dry.
Throw out expired makeup
That mascara that’s been sitting on your vanity for the last year isn’t doing your lashes any favours. Bacteria can build up in old makeup and cause breakouts. The New Year is a great time to overhaul your makeup collection and throw out any that are out of date. Mascara expires after about 3 months, foundation between 6 and 12 months, eyeliner after 3 months, and lip products after a year.
