Tis The Season To Glam Up Your Beauty Routine by Barbies Beauty Bits and Glossybox

So let’s dive in!

Bow To The Brow
The holidays are a perfect time to show off your eyes, and your eyebrows are a key to this. Eyebrows form a frame around your eyes taking them from Plain Jane to Glamorous Brow, in a matter of minutes and the RETRO BROW – PRIME & EXTEND DUO, by NutraLuxe MD, does exactly this.  I love this product as it is an all-in-one-product.  It includes a pigmented primer that acts as a holding base and when fused with the cellulose fibers, amplifies the appearance of your natural eyebrow into full dramatic brows.

How to use:
• Step 1: Apply primer to each eyebrow.
• Step 2: Immediately follow with fibers on top of the primed area.
• Step 3: Finish with another coat of primer to lock in the fibers.
*Repeat steps 1-3 for a more dramatic look.

Now that you have framed your eyes, you are ready for the star of the night, your eyeshadow.  This month’s Glossybox Dome shadow comes in a variety of colors, and I was happy to get the burgundy color in my box as this color is a favorite of mine.  This eyeshadow has a metallic finish, perfect for the holiday season!

Add A Glow To Your Skin
There were three skincare products in this box, first is the SKIN & CO ROMA KIN & CO 'Truffle Therapy' Cleansing Oil.  I’ve seen this product at Nordstrom, so to get this in my Glossybox was wonderful.  I love that it is paraben free and boy is this fancy as it has truffle extract. While it is strong enough to remove your makeup, it is gentle on the skin for cleansing.

How to use: To achieve the full benefits of the cleansing oil, shake the bottle gently to mix the two phases. Saturate a cotton pad to gently and effectively remove your makeup and impurities.

Now it is time to let it snow, glow with  Babor masterpiece ampoule set.  Low humidity and cooler temperatures can leave your skin dry, flaky, and itchy. So having a product to protect your skin from drying out in the winter is a must.

This skincare duo pairs two types of ampoules to instantly repair and protect dry or dehydrated skin.

Daytime: Use Hydra Plus Active Fluid to get an instant moisture boost.  This product has hyaluronic acid which is a premier hydrating ingredient for skin helping to smooth out your complexion leaving it feeling softer, smoother, with a radiant, hydrated glow!

Nighttime: Give your skin a boost with black truffle and black seaweed.  The active night fluid helps to regenerate your skin overnight!

Last but not least is the AVANCÉ+ INVISIBLE PORES NIGHT DETOX SERUM.  This product has multiple benefits as well; it is kind of like a nighttime primer for your skin!

If you follow my blog you know my thoughts on primers, they are a must.  Without them, your makeup will sit in your pores, create false wrinkles, while leaving a dull appearance...period! On the other hand, when you do use a primer, you'll find that your foundation will have a much smoother finish while minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines. While this is not a substitute for a makeup primer, it really helps to prep your skin for better makeup application.

This serum has some Anti-bacterial /Anti-inflammatory action to help minimizes your pores. It also detoxifies and encourages collagen synthesis & promotes cellular renewal.

Make sure your lips are mistletoe ready with bad Medina shimmery lipstick. Lips with a bit of glitz, perfect for a kissable pout!
