New Year’s Detox: Perfect Your Skin

Skin can take some abuse during the holiday season. Cosmetics with heavier formulas that contain metallic and glitter pigments can clog up pores. There are also those celebratory glasses of moisture draining champagne, to account for! Reveal new skin for the New Year with a detox program that repairs, hydrates, and protects, featuring a few of our personal beauty faves.

New Year Skin - 1

Well-prepped skin always begins with hydration! With just a few steps, you can reactivate the moisture hidden within your cells by giving skin a refill, so to speak! It’s best to use a hydrating or illuminating mask to plump up the outer epidermis. The Patchology “Hydrating Face Mask” treats dryness with a “mega-dose” of ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B5 in just five minutes! It’s one of our essential refreshers!

If your skin is particularly thirsty, leave the mask on for fifteen minutes, until you feel the tightness subsiding. Remove the mask and gently rub the remaining solution into the surface of your skin. Next, we focus on the eyes!

We can’t live without the super luxurious Crème de La Mer “The Eye Concentrate.”This is a deeply conditioning treatment that is mineral charged to produce moisture and help diminish the appearance of dark circles. For even toned skin that looks flawless and well-rested, massage in a thin layer of La Mer’s Moisturizing Cream. Intense hydration restores radiance, while nutrients in this miracle formula can even smooth away fine lines over time.

Uniform application of your lipstick requires a base that is free of dry patches. Try VL’s Cushion Lips, with a blend of Aloe and natural oils to heal, soften and ready them for color. Prime your face using a few dabs of Water Canvas Primer on the face. An oil-free transparent gel, this primer nourishes and improves upon the texture of your skin, yet allows pores to breathe. Lastly, spritz your face with Caudalie Beauty Elixir to soothe and calm the skin. One of our secret ways to build a dewy finish!

New Years - 2

Immaculate skin means less make up! But even healthy skin can sometimes encounter a small flaw. To generate the illusion of perfection, apply the Water Canvas Foundation shade that most closely matches your skin tone with our Water Canvas Sponge. Build up to your desired coverage level, blending outward as you go. Formulated with a patented process of 75% microwater to hydrate, this unique oil-free, cream-to-powder formula provides a real skin look, feel and finish.

Using VL’s Liquid Concealer, pat gently in the under-eye area to conceal any darkness. For a natural flush, dab a touch of Water Canvas Blush in Morning Tender (a soft, berry shade) to the apples of your cheeks using fingertips to blend. Made with the same technology as our foundation, it won't sit in fine lines like a powder and won’t feel oily like a cream can! Highlight the highest point of the cheekbone with Mermaid Muse Water Canvas Highlighter to produce the look of truly glowing skin!

New Years - 3

Stay simple with just 2 coats of Lush Length Mascara to the top and bottom lashes. Infused with Argan and Jojoba oils, our newest mascara envelops lashes, while adding volume and extending length. Conditions from root to tip with an innovative formula that remains soft throughout the day!

New Years - 4

Choose a warm pink lipstick to generate a natural ‘just bitten’ effect, but select something with staying power since the rest of your makeup will be on the light side. La Prima Velvet Riche Lipstick offers vibrant, long lasting color in a cushiony, creamy base. It’s classic, bold coverage that makes lips stand out!

New Years - Final
