The Festive Guide: How to look your best.

December 22

The Festive season is here! I don’t know about you but it’s the time to look your best for all the parties, Christmas celebrations and outings. I’ve got you sorted from how to get soft skin whilst smelling like a candy cane, how to get quick, no-fuss natural tan to a lipstick guide.

Get soft skin with De la Mer’s Candy Cane scrub
What: Candy Cane sugar scrub
Where: De La Mer day scrub on Beach Road (they really perfect the mix of a salon and day spa)
The treatment: Started with a Green tea foot scrub after getting changed in the changing rooms before getting a 30 minute candy cane scrub (smells delicious!), this was followed by a shower in between before laying back down for a sweet almond oil full body massage. I had to rush out sadly for a meeting, but it usually also ends with a candy cane foot scrub and pedicure.
Results: My skin felt incredibly soft, I smelt amazing and felt super relaxed. The perfect Chrismas treat!
Recommended therapist: Noi
Cost: AED490
Extra notes:
-The sweet almond oil is not greasy at all, so you’re good to go if you have something else right after.
-I usually rush out right after treatments but try to save 5 minutes at De la Mer, they have one of the best Ginger teas with a side of cucumbers and carrots dipped in lemon juice. (yum)
-They send email appointment reminders, which is always a great alternative to calls (which we all end up missing!)

The Lipstick Guide
I recently had a session with MAC’s Global make up artist, Vimi Joshi, who shared what lipsticks we should be wearing from the festive season. If you’re a nude, bright or deep plum girl, here are Vimi’s recommendations.

-Girl About Town
Vibrant bright pink that illuminates most skin tones.

-La Vie en Rouge
The perfect coral to brighten up your face.

Soft baby pink that works beautifully for creating a nude “barely there” lip colour.

-Fashion Revival
A rich plum

matte burgundy that makes an Instant beauty Statement.

-Kinda Sexy
The Iconic Peachy lip colour that is the “Go To” Nude shade for the Arabic Women.

For deeper undertone’s this works beautifully as a nude lip with its rich caramel colour.

This rich blood red lipstick will add intensity and glamour instantly.
