Yes... It's That Time of the Year Again!

The ‘Silly Season’ Beauty Guide

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Yes, the silly season is finally upon us and we’re just a little bit excited… Whether you’ll be carving it up in the snowy slopes of Niseko or sitting seaside with a glass of Pol Roger; we’ve got your beauty necessities covered, however you’re spending the festive season.



For the Jet-setters 

If you’re lucky enough to be celebrating the festive season abroad these holidays, you can always rely on Aesop for their Jet Set Kit! It’s the perfect carry-on component to keep you cleansed, hydrated and refreshed while you journey. You’ll arrive feeling as fresh as you would have been in first class!


Pre-game Prep

For those of you packing your bikinis and wide-brim hats, you’ll definitely need to pay a visit to a few beauty hot-spots prior to travel: Brooklyn Beauty BarAmy-Jean Eye Couture and Outshine!

We’re thinking a gel polish mani and pedi at Brooklyn Beauty Bar for that extra long wear, a brow sculpt and lash lift from Amy-Jean for that effortless no-makeup beach look, then a minimal pain waxing session from Outshine!


Beach Day

Ok, pre-trip activities sorted. Now, it’s time for the summer essentials! We’re all familiar with the feeling of a humid Queensland summer, so it’s always best to stick with a lightweight foundation to avoid any makeup mishaps… Mecca Cosmetica‘s In A Good Light SPF30+ Tinted Moisturiser (shown above) is a beach bag must, giving you lightweight coverage with UVA and UVB sun protection, all while luminising and hydrating the skin!

And for those of you who want the golden glow without the sun, here’s a little gem that’ll help with just that! Mecca Cosmetica‘s THIS WORKS Perfect Legs Gradual Tan is a repairing serum that will gradually build up your natural-looking summer glow – you can thank us later!


Ice Cold Beauty

For those who are swapping a bikini for a coat, you’ll be needing a few essentials to survive winter’s sting. Firstly, hydration, hydration, hydration! Waterlily’s Soothing Creme is a purifying blend of nuts, fruit cremes, jojoba seed and vitamin E to detoxify and decongest, while replenishing to boost hydration – everything the skin needs after exposure to the cold.

During the day, we suggest Mecca Cosmetica‘s Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm to protect, prime and hydrate skin with broad spectrum SPF, while delivering and all over radiant glow.

Lastly, and most importantly, you’ll need Mecca Cosmetica‘s Lip De-Luscious balm (shown above) with nourishing rich botanicals and vitamin E. Bye-bye chapped lips!


An Easy Transition

Christmas day is unpredictable, so it always helps to have beauty products that can take you right from family brunch to dinner with the girls. Mac Cosmetics‘s Amber x 9 eyeshadow palette (shown above) gives you nine dreamy shades of bronze, browns and ambers to add new dimensions to your look. The final touch is none other then Mac’s Retro Matte Ruby Woo Lipstick, the perfect festive and ‘wow’ factor addition!
