Mid-Week Pick Me Ups
All the latest essentials needed to get you ready to face the day during the transitional snap. No hot chocolate required.
Winter can be a very unflattering time of the year, but it doesn’t have to be. We’re all feeling it and hoping we can make it through to Friday. So, if your reflection has been looking a little drab lately, you’re not alone.
Here are a few ways to look and feel good in an instant through October:
Slay with skinSense
There’s something about slapping on a face mask and splashing it off ten minutes later that leaves us just a tiny bit unsatisfied. Did it really have time to do its business? And was the whole process a bit of a waste of time? Leaving a mask on overnight requires less faff and clock watching and allows its ingredients to do their thang. Give skinSense’s Overnight Leave on Mask its fair stab of working its magic. By transforming dull and lacklustre skin, it gives the face a clearer, brighter complexion with a few uses.
Fake a faux glow with Gatineau
Fake tanning is the quickest and easiest way to get an all-over golden glow at any time of the year, even in the dull days that October brings. Without even a hint of sunshine, Gatineau’s Golden Glow Gradual Tan is a lightweight yet deeply hydrating gel-cream. It’s also much more forgiving than a fake tan and is suitable for all skin types and tones. As a personal favourite of ours, you’ll be happy to know you can use this on both the face and body offering a truly transformative yet tailored sun-kissed glow.
Be an eye shadow expert with Genie
In need of a mega pick me up on hump day? Eye shadow is mostly used to make the eyes stand out or to make us look more awake and of course; attractive. We’re doubling the power of Genie’s Cashmere Blush for this exact reason. Although it’s a blush, it’s colours make for the perfect eye shadow. By adding depth and dimension to one’s eyes on top of the lids, both Sunrise and Sunset simply draw attention to the area.
