This is the time of year where people are poppin’ corks left and right! Between holiday brunches, work parties and the New Year’s festivities, bubbly is flowing. We definitely aren’t complaining…instead we are inspired! So we raise a glass and toast to some of our favorite champagne inspired beauty bits. Cheers lovelies!
Butter London, The 444: All that glitters isn’t always gold but this polish comes in at #1 on Kristin Ess’s all-time favorite gold glitter list! That being said we want it on our tips ASAP. We’d say greeting 2014 with a party nail lacquered with this is a great start!
Origins Starting Over Age-Erasing Eye Cream with Mimosa: Mimosas are no longer only for brunch. Origins has infused this amazing eye cream with extract from the mimosa flower used to boost collagen production. An anti-aging invitation personally for your peepers!
Sweet Anthem Perfume in Caroline: Sweet Anthem is a tiny perfume studio created by Meredith Smith, where you’ll find 100% vegan friendly fragrances, custom perfumes, and indie and artisan scents, all crafted with love. The scent Caroline is a bubbles-and-fizz chypre perfume with top notes of champagne, bergamot and lemon. YUMMY.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eyeshadow, Eternal Sunshine: This champagne gold shadow has a festive metallic finish that is formulated to last all day (or most likely all night). Tip: dampen your eye shadow brush before applying for a more saturated finish!
MAKE UP FOR EVER Diamond Powder Champagne: We love this unique pigment because it is somewhere between a shimmer shadow and a loose glitter…but most definitely stunning! The particles are finer and literally radiate extreme brilliance as soon as they are applied!
St. Tropez Skin Illuminator in Gold: Get that golden, bubbly glow all over with this skin illuminator. As far as we’re concerned, bare legs shouldn’t enter a party without a layer of this. Shoulders and decollates also benefit from a bit of glow. A toast to your luminosity!
Guerlain L’or Radiance Concentrate With Pure Gold Make-up Base: This complexion perfecting primer is as decadent as a glass of bubbly itself. The 24-carat gold-infused cooling gel sinks into the skin, retaining moisture. Applied to bare skin, this skin enhancer and makeup primer smoothes fine lines and tightens facial features. It also provides an even finish under makeup. Cheers to that!
SEPHORA COLLECTION Glitter Eyeliner and Mascara VIP Gold: You know how we feel about double duty products and this little glimmering gem is no different. This doubles as a golden glitter mascara and a gold glitter liner. The mascara wand has a liner brush on the tip to ensure all around shimmer on your lashes and lids!
Smashbox O-Gloss Gold: We are big fans of the original O-Gloss, the mood-ring effect for your lips, but we are over the moon for this golden version! This gloss works with your natural body chemistry to give your lips a subtle, custom golden finish. Trust us, its gorgeous.
RMS Beauty Cream Shadow in Lunar: RMS Beauty pretty much takes the cake when it comes to cream products. We love this cream shadow in Lunar because of it’s golden glow-y essence! It can also be used as a highlighting product for the tops of the cheekbones, under the brow bone, and, our favorite, on the cupid’s bow for fuller looking lips!
Eminence Mimosa Champagne Tonique: This refreshing toner spritz purifies and hydrates to reveal a radiant, youthful complexion. It neutralizes free-radicals with antioxidant-rich champagne grapes, preventing hyper pigmentation as orange essential oils provide anti-inflammatory and antiseptic benefits to calm and sooth. Pour us another!
Z Bigatti ReStoration Champagne Gel Cleanser: Who says all the fun has to end when its time to take off the party rouge? This champagne infused gel cleanser is non-foaming so it won’t strip skin of its natural moisture. Skin is left hydrated and refreshed ready for its next adventure!
Happy New Year from everyone at thebeautydepartment! <3
