As Christmas Eve is approaching, we’re all starting to sneak peak around festive collections, shop-in-shop corners and bespoke gift sets or special deals. Oh I love this seasonal mood! My Christmas style is pretty ‘simple’: an overdose of Baroque. Which means golden-packaged beauty picks, an oriental-flowery fragrance, bold red lips, lashings of mascara, gypsy ear-rings and/or jewellery, and above all touch of Chanel here and there.
If you want to get ready in time, you may need to prepare the grounding with a radiant, flawless complexion. To achieve it, Chanel launched this year a wonderful highlighting powder called Camélia de Plumes: a limited edition product featuring a feather-flowery shape, which adds light thanks to its gold shimmers and platinum reflections. If you need to conceal blemishes, keep at hand YSL Touche Eclat: brilliant and compact enough to be carried around in your most glamorous evening clutch.
How to create those doll eyes Christmas parties are made for? Thanks to the high-performing formula and wand of Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara. Naturally in black and re-applied at least two times.
For an homage to the season, red mat lips are a must. I don’t know you, but on me I prefer shining, glittery nude lips, while I prefer mat finishes in darker colors. This is why I like so much most of the Sephora Cream Lip Stain range. Their classic red, which is the shade #01, will get you in the mood, without making you break the bank to afford the expense.
End up with a generous spray of Guerlain Idylle: a fresh and joyful shower of flowers, composed of lily, peony, freesia, white lilac, revealing a heart of jasmine and Bulgarian roses and ending with an accord of patchouli and white musk.
And don’t forget about jewels. I said ‘chic Baroque’.
