YOUR HOLIDAY PARTY PRE-MAKEUP ROUTINE
The holidays are officially here, and with them, holiday parties. Family parties, office parties, cookie-decorating parties—you name it, we’ve RSVP’d “YES” to it.
Unfortunately, staying out too late, not getting enough sleep and overindulging in delicious holiday cocktails and desserts can lead to dull, unhappy skin. But, don’t stress just yet. There are a few steps you can take to keep your complexion glowing all season long.
So, strap on those shimmering heels you’ve been dying to wear—let’s talk about your holiday party pre-makeup routine:
Get flawless skin in a flash (seriously, just 15 minutes!) with PHAT Glow Facial™, the no-downtime, massage-activated at-home facial. Whether your holiday party plans involve an open bar and photobooths or homemade cookies and the couch, this innovative face mask, powered by PHAs (polyhydroxy acids), is the ultimate “get ready with me” prep step—it works like a facial to instantly reveal smoother, illuminated, no-filter-necessary skin.
Want softer, smoother lips? You’re in luck. Packed with apple fiber and sugar exfoliants, Lucky Pucker™ Lip Scrub, a delicious apple cinnamon exfoliator stick, gently buffs away dry, flaky skin to reveal a smooth, supple pout. And, with essential fatty acid-rich kokum butter, shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and sunflower oil, the nourishing formula helps soften lips (AKA you’ll be ready to pucker up under the mistletoe).
Banana Bright Eye Crème also works wonders, both as part of the application process for your holiday party eye makeup and as post-makeup pampering. Out of the bunch (see what we did there?), this is our best eye cream for dark circles. Inspired by makeup artist secret, “banana powder,” this eye cream contains special pigments that instantly color correct dark circles. It’s also proven to improve concealer wear, so it works with your makeup, not against it. But, because we care about long-term benefits, too, it’s made with vitamin C and collagen to help brighten, firm and target fine lines and wrinkles.
Last, but certainly not least: You need a makeup primer to keep your look on point all night long. Enter Banana Bright Face Primer, where skincare and makeup come face to face. Not only does this vitamin C makeup primer improve and extend makeup wear, but it has skincare benefits, too. With vitamin C and banana powder-inspired pigments, this makeup primer instantly brightens and keeps you glowing from pregame to after party.
