The colour red promises to bring good fortune and joy in the new year, and this bottle of revitalizing essence from Shiseido will certainly make your skin look joyful. The treatment lotion conditions the skin, revitalizing it, and leaving your complexion feeling as soft as a flower petal with a radiating glow.
Nothing is more fitting to wear in celebration than the perfect red lipstick. Shiseido’s line of Perfect Rouge Lipsticks are richly pigmented and come in a range of red shades so you can find the perfect match for your unique skintone.
Start off the new year with a fresh new scent! Lancôme’s Miracle Eau de Parfum is a vibrant, sparkling fragrance that opens like the dawning of a new day with notes of Lychee and Freesia. At its heart, notes of Magnolia, Jasmine, Ginger and Pepper spice things up, while warm base notes of Amber and Musk envelop the senses.
This line of opulent gold skincare products make a luxe gift or a special treat for yourself. Choose the Absolue Premium BX Replenishing Rejuvenating Day Cream, and it will help to deeply replenish moisture and improve the skin’s firmness and luminosity around the delicate eye area.
Achieve a bright, radiant complexion thanks to this replenishing cleansing oil. Its nourishing formula with omega 3, 6, 9 and vitamin E will remove all impurities and makeup, leaving your skin feeling clean, soft and smooth.
Science will be on your side with these golden capsules from Elizabeth Arden. They hold the restorative power of Ceramides and essential lipids to help strengthen the skin’s barrier against the visible signs of time: fine lines and wrinkles.
Put your best face forward by making skincare a priority this year. Try Bioderma’s Hydrabio line: it will pamper your face with a generous dose of hydration, while also creating a glowing, smooth base for makeup application.

The season of music festivals is upon us! If you’ve managed to snag tickets and are now in the process of planning your outfits, hair and makeup, our Beauty Advisors have some tips for what to bring – aside from floral crowns, combat boots and crochet crop tops.
Access to electricity may not be widely available during the festival, so having wireless hair tools is key. The wireless battery-operated Conair Infiniti Pro Ultimate Brush tames static and frizzy hair using ion technology, so you can keep fly-aways at bay.
Let’s be honest, access to showers at festivals is a luxury. Use Fekkai’s Blowout Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo to skip a wash and give your hair an instant refresh. The dry shampoo will absorb dirt and oil so your hair will look and smell freshly done!
With back-to-back concerts and parties, your makeup will be put to the test. To avoid the dreaded melting mascara, swipe Marcelle’s Waterproofing Mascara Topcoat over your favourite regular mascara once dry.
A lightweight coverage BB cream is the best way to give your face natural looking coverage that won’t get cakey and melt in the sun. La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar BB Blur not only gives light coverage, but it also minimizes excess shine and offers SPF 24 to protect your face from the sun throughout the day.
Spending all day under the hot sun with little to no shade means you’ll need to re-apply sunscreen every couple hours to stay protected. Vichy’s Idéal Soleil XL Sunscreen Cream has a fast-drying non-sticky texture that can be applied on face and body, offering both UVA and UVB protection.
Don’t forget to protect your lips with SPF too. A tinted lip balm with SPF, like e.l.f.’s Studio Lip Balm will give your lips a flush of natural-looking colour, while also soothing and protecting them from harmful sun rays.
You’ll look like a bronzed festival goddess all day long with Cargo’s Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer. The longwearing formula withstands perspiration, so you can rock a healthy summer glow without having to fuss with re-application throughout the day.
Long days with little sleep and lots of sun mean your skin will likely be begging for a pick-me-up. Give your face a quick spritz of Youngblood’s Minerals in the Mist Refresh to soothe tired skin and give a refreshing boost of moisture to your face.
These makeup wipes from Bioderma are non-rinse: perfect for quickly wiping off makeup & cleansing skin after a long festival day, especially when you don’t have easy access to running water.
