The holidays are a time of gathering. You see family and friends you don’t quite often get to see year round—and we all know what that means: feeling the holiday spirit and togetherness, and lots of memories captured in pictures! With all the fun, it might be easy to forget to stay diligent about your skincare, but the holidays are actually the most important time to take care of your largest organ. After all, it’s faced with a lot less sleep and more indulgences.
Unless you have your own glam squad, you don’t need to spend hours to get ready for your next winter event. We have three quick steps that will make a huge difference in how you look and feel. It’s all about skin—then adding a few festive touches to complete your look.
Step 1: Create an airbrushed canvas with IPRIME flawless blur gel
Nothing looks better in a holiday photo than perfectly textured skin. Our IPRIME flawless blur gel gets you camera-ready in under a minute by diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles while reducing the signs of aging in the long run. This innovative gel helps “fill in the gaps” on your skin so your complexion looks as smooth as possible.
We combined the ultimate skin smoother with anti-aging powerhouses to refine and treat your skin at the same time. Fueled by microspheres of marine collagen and glycosaminoglycans (components of connective tissue) to create an instant smoothing effect, the blur gel is like putting your face under the best lighting possible. Then, epidermal stem cells help boost the regenerative, tissue-building capabilities of skin, while the most stable form of vitamin C protects against aging free radical damage.
How to Use: After cleansing, toning and moisturizing, simply apply on skin after your daily moisturizer and before makeup to increase its staying power.
Bonus Tip: If you haven’t already done so the day before, exfoliate after you cleanse to get rid of dead skin cells and get even smoother skin. Try ILUMA intense brightening exfoliating powder.
Step 2: Veil your skin with flawlessness with ICONCEAL flawless foundation SPF 30
To add a breathable, featherlight layer of immaculate “second skin,” veil on ICONCEAL flawless foundation SPF 30, which offers an adaptable mineral-pigmented color to ensure your visage looks even-toned and spotlessly natural. With broad-spectrum sun protection (especially useful for daytime holiday parties), this foundation also helps maintain the perfect balance of moisture so you look fresh and dewy—not dry, not greasy. You’ll look smashing in all the snapshots.
How to Use: After applying IPRIME, use a makeup sponge or brush to sweep small amounts on your face with buildable layers. Make sure you blend well into your neck and around your hairline.
Step 3: Add a festive touch of color with ORMEDIC sheer pink lip enhancement complex
Anticipating some mistletoe at the party? Get naturally firm and full lips with our ultra-healing, anti-chapping lip treatment, which adds a rosy tint to your puckers while drenching them with much-needed moisture and imparting a voluminous look. Used every day, this glossy balm diminishes fine lines thanks to an anti-aging complex that supports collagen in the lips.
If you want to go bold with a different lip color, ORMEDIC lip complex ensures your lips are soft, smooth and flake-free prior to applying any color (especially bolder hues).
Pssst, by purchasing this lip savior, you also automatically give back to the Care for Skin Foundation!
How to Use: Simply glide on a light layer to your lips or use under your favorite holiday lipstick!
Optional final steps: Ornament yourself!
Now that your skin is gorgeous and photo-ready, it’s primed for you to add your unique personality to your holiday party look. Whether you want to add a smoky eye with nude lip or focus on a sexy red lip, you have the foundation all set—pun intended—to capture your most joyful self for years to come.
Have fun and stay beautiful!
