5 Fun Festive Beauty Traditions

Whether you are spending this December cosying up in the lounge welcoming the warmth of a roaring fire, hot chocolate in hand watching The Holiday, or you are heading on ‘out’ to your living room to a glitzy Zoom party, it’s the most magical time of the year and one that we should try to relax, enjoy and celebrate. One of the best ways to indulge in some festive fun is by switching up your beauty routine and adding in a few festive beauty traditions. 

A Red Lip 

As soon as the Christmas tree comes out, so does the red lipstick, that’s how it works right? Is there anything more festive than a velvety red lipstick to keep in line with the traditional colours of Christmas as we transition into the warm, wintery season.  

 

A Little Bit of Sparkle 

Party season is upon us and although this year’s Christmas party may be a little different, we should embrace the nights we will be logging on to Zoom and enjoying a delicious cup of spicy mulled wine whilst not having to worry about what we’re wearing. If you’re thinking about how to ’sleigh’ your make up for this year’s party, December is the time to highlight those shimmering shadows, presenting your eyes with an iridescent shine. To really dazzle this year, start your smokey eye with a beautiful intense bronze and layer with glistening metallics. Apply your eye shadow first and depending on how much of a statement it creates, there is the option to keep the rest of the make up more subtle. 

A Merry Mani 

Autumn tends to be all about the rich jewel tones, deep purples and burnt oranges but come 1st December it’s time to trade in the sensible shades to something a little glitzier. Think deep berry reds, frosted silvers, and a big dusting of glitter. Your hands are going to be working hard wrapping presents and writing cards, so they deserve a treat. 

 

A Festive Fragrance 

It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas. Use your fragrance to create a spark of nostalgia that will transport you back to warm, happy memories. Indulge in the season by starting with something a little festive in the shower. If you’re looking for comfort the Cowshed Cosy Body Oil is a beautiful spicy, floral scent of Rose Absolute and Patchouli essential oils. Finish your look with a spritz of your favourite perfume. 

 

A Golden Hue 

With many of us not being able to head off for a winter getaway this year, we can still fulfil a healthy glow over the festive season by applying some self-tan. Preparation is the key to illumination, so make a note in the diary to apply your tan every few days to ensure a rich golden hue in time for the big day.
