Photo Ready for the Holidays –
Only four days left until Christmas! I wanted to share with you some fashion and beauty products I use to get photo ready for all the holiday snaps that are bound to happen this time of year. These products are great to use all year-long but when you know there will be a lot of photo evidence you really want to make sure you are ready.
First up I am a huge fan of Crest WhiteStrips, but I really love the 3D White 1 Hour Express Teeth Whitening Kit. These babies make your teeth pearly white in just one use as they contain the same whitening ingredients used by the dentist. Plus they have Advanced Seal Technology so they won’t slip off and you can continue to talk normally and even drink water while they are on. Right now you can also get a great deal when you buy one kit and get one free at Walmart, the packaging you are looking for is in these photos. Each kit has 4 treatments with one upper strip and one lower with a total of 8 strips. I’m wearing them right now as I type this so my teeth are pearly white for the upcoming Holiday events.
Another thing I like to do is make sure I’m wearing beautiful undergarments. It’s more confidence boosting than you can imagine. Plus if you are wearing the right size bra it makes everything you wear look better. I am a huge fan of ThirdLove, their bras fit amazing and they are really pretty too. Pictured here is the one I’m looking forward to wearing for Christmas, the Violet Ice Strap Happy Bra and Thong. Be sure to check out their amazing fit guide as well!
When getting photo ready you don’t want to forget about your hair. I don’t just mean the cut, color or style either. Get your hair and scalp in the best condition by trying a pre-shampoo mask like this one by Dessange Paris. If you have oily hair or scalp this is perfect as it contains a 30% mineral green clay concentration that absorbs excess sebum and helps regulate oil production when used once a week.
Now lets talk skin care. Two products that I love and have started using on a daily basis is the Divas Never Age Hyaluronic Acid Serum and StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner. For the DNA serum, besides containing powerful ingredients it is also cruelty free, organic, natural & vegan. I put that on first and then I use the StriVectin® which is a daily pore-minimizing lotion and anti-aging moisturizer with Retinol. The two together help get my skin ready for those holiday photos.
As for my holiday makeup plans. I am thinking smooth, matte skin with a classic cat-eye and red lip. I love the blotting papers by e.l.f. The package is small so it easily fits in a clutch and they soak up extra shine very nicely. The eyeliner I like right now is also by e.l.f. and it’s their Precision Liquid Eyeliner which goes on thin and smooth. Last but not least, I love this pure red lipstick by Lancome. It’s from the L’absolu Rouge Definition collection and it’s called Le Carmin. It has a beautiful demi-matte finish. I plan on adding these Urban Decay Instalush Partial False Lashes to my eye makeup plan for New Years Eve. And then to finish off my holiday look I’m adding a spritz of your favorite scent. I am currently wearing Lancome La Vie Est Belle. What do you do to prepare for holiday photos?
