Beauty Advice

Get ready to shine in the festive season!

New Year’s Eve is almost here: the countdown has started! To keep your skin looking radiant throughout the festivities, you don’t need to spend hours in the bathroom. Follow our guide and make some tweaks to your beauty routine a few days before the party season to make sure you look glowing, fresh and rested…

A few days before: prepare your skin.

To avoid a last-minute rush on New Year’s Eve, prepare your skin a few days before.
For a radiant and even complexion, start by applying an exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin cells. Then apply a moisturising mask to hydrate and plump your skin: this is essential for all skin types.

Over the next few days, remember to apply a moisturising cream in the morning and at night to keep your skin beautifully plump for the big day. Apply an eye cream too, as the skin around the eyes is first to betray signs of fatigue, and late nights are more frequent at this time of year.

On the day: it’s time to turn your attention to your hair and lips.

The night before or in the morning, treat your hair to a deeply nourishing oil bath for supple, shiny locks and easier styling. This is a particularly recommended if you plan to blow-dry your hair…

To renew the hair fibre: opt for a blend of botanical oils, such as Huile Prodigieuse®, as its cold-pressed oils are naturally rich in fatty acids that can be easily assimilated by the hair. Leave the oil on your hair for 20 minutes: you can wrap your hair in a warm towel to help open the scales and boost the nourishing effect. Then rinse and shampoo your hair.

In the evening: help your make-up last the distance.

If you want to party all night long, your make-up needs staying power too! For longer wear and to avoid dehydrating your skin, complement your routine with a few clever products.

A mask containing clay is ideal for a mattifying effect on combination to oily skin to stop it looking shiny just a few hours into the meal.

Enlist the services of a perfecting smoothing primer too (for example, Crème Prodigieuse Boost® 5-in-1 Multi-Perfection Smoothing Primer) to smooth your skin and instantly blur small imperfections: an ideal base for make-up!

Once you have applied your make-up, add the finishing touch with a powder, for example the Poudre Éclat Prodigieux®, to give your skin an instant healthy glow and brighten your complexion. To illuminate your face with a festive glow, don’t forget your secret weapon: an iridescent dry oil, applied with the fingertips to facial volumes (cheekbones, arch of the brows, etc.) and the shoulders, décolleté and hair.

Finally, for a captivating fragrant trail, dab a few drops of an intense perfume concentrate, for example Prodigieux® Absolu de Parfum, onto the hollow and nape of your neck.

You’re ready to party!
