As December is one of the most exciting months of the year, it is also the final month of the year. With everything from Christmas to Boxing Day to NYE, a lot of amazing things always happen this month. As we say goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016, there are an array of new discoveries including beauty favorites. So, what are my beauty favorites for the month of December?
One of the most popular makeup techniques in the world today is contouring and what better way to embrace the concept than with this amazingly new discovery, the AEsethica Cream Contour Kit. For only $59, this incredible contour palette is one of my beauty favorites for the month and features 6 silky creams that work together to sculpt and define your face, allowing you to put only your best face forward. As we head into 2016, I am definitely taking this AEsthetica addition with me.
Infused with everything from argan, borage, arnica and more, the Tata Harper Beautifying Oil works to hydrate the skin as well as, brighten the skin delivering only instantaneous moisture that corrects and protects your skin’s natural acid mantle. For under $50, this product is 100% organic and is free of everything from synthetic chemicals and fragrances to even fillers, sulfates, parabens, GMOs and even gluten. As one of my beauty favorites this month, I am confident that once you discover this amazing face oil from Tata Harper it will become one of your favorites too.
BATH & BODY
Whether you are looking for the perfect pore purge or simply that divine detox, you can get all of that and more with the detoxing truffles. Made with real food-grade activated charcoal, these incredible additions to the CHEN brand will not only unclog pores, they will heal and nourish your skin too. Whether you have dry, oil, combination and even sensitive skin, this essential is great for every skin type. Available at CHEN Skin Health, the detoxing truffles start at $5 each when you buy 5 ($25) and go up from there. As they work amazing on the body, they also work on the face too. Definitely one of my personal favorites this month.
The discovered the Mix•o•logie, including it’s Blendable Perfume Collecton set earlier this month. The entire set comes fully equipped a beautiful box with eight rollerball fragrance oils along with seven recipe cards. The fragrance oils include: Electric (citrus twist), Serene (light floral), Tenacious (crisp vanilla), Sultry (wild musk), Free (ocean mist), Assured (natural), Inspired (rose floral) and Tender (Fruity). You can create your own fragrance and the best part is, everything is free of alcohol so it is not harsh and smells quite natural. The Mixologie Blendable Perfume collection is available for just $69.
Ever since I discovered Style Edit’s Root Concealer, I have been quite obsessed with it. It is a magnificient mask for every hair color and it is great for those of you who want to extend the life of your color and will give you the much needed boost you are looking to achieve from such a product, as well. The applicator literally targets the area (or areas) that need the color and applies it generously. The best part is, it isn’t permanent and is free from parabens and peroxide too. Available in virtually every shade for $24.50, this spectacular Style Edit addition is a product you will benefit from.
One of my favorite nail products if not my favorite for the month of December is definitely the New Globe Walk Snow Globe nail polish from NAILS INC. For only $15, this nail polish really brings so much to this month. As the sparkles tend to lay on the bottom, you can shake the bottle and it transforms into a gorgeous gold glitter nail polish. The sparkle in this fabulous NAILS INC. is very light, but you can apply it generously for a more glam look which I love. This nail polish is limited-edition so once it is gone, it is gone for good. That is unless they bring it back of course.
When I first discovered the Beauty Rounds from the Q-tips brand I was quite baffled. Baffled in the best way possible, that is. Why? Because they are not only incredibly effective, but they are also affordable. They also work for almost everything. Whether you want to remove your makeup or even tone your skin, you can use them. Whether you want to apply and blend your makeup, the beauty rounds work. Are you looking to remove your nail polish? If so, you will love these even more. If you are looking to clean your makeup brushes, they are an amazing essential that can help. You can grab the Q-tips Beauty Rounds at your nearest Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid. You can also find them online at Amazon too.
My boyfriend Joe recently found himself on ProFlowers.com where he discovered an amazing bouquet of red velvet roses. For only $49.99 you can get 18 or for $69.98 you can get 36 plus the price of the vase, shipping and other additions. Also, if packages interest you that allow you to gift someone for 2 days, you can give 18 red velvet roses plus 6 of their swizzled berries or you can give 36 red velvet roses plus 12 of their swizzled berries. Prices vary and are subject to change on the packages. These are a beauty favorite simply because they look even more striking in person than they do in the photo. To complete this month’s beauty favorites, if you are interested in beautiful roses, these are the one for you.
