Good morning and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We are now 38 days away from Christmas. It may surprise you, but I have always been one of those people who leave all of my shopping until the last minute. Well now that I have started Style Parade, last minute shopping no more! Today I am featuring my first gift guide on top beauty essentials for women this holiday season.
I love floral based scents and have been wearing Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume for a good year now. Another scent that I spray every time I walk through The Bay is Lancôme’s La Vie Est Belle. Now that I am in my late 20’s eye cream is essential. Bobbie Brown Hydrating Eye Cream comes highly recommended and would make the perfect stocking stuffer this year. I constantly get dry skin in my under eye and inner eye areas and am always on the hunt for a creamy, long-lasting hydrator that fights dark circles, fine lines, and the harsh winter cold. I welcome suggestions if you have any eye creams you would recommend. Atlantic-Pacific uses Stila Liquid Lipstick in ‘Beso‘ — need I say more? Everyone seems to be talking about the Clarasonic and the fabulous skin results that come with its regular usage. Ladies, listen to me, full brows are where it is at. I can remember back in high school when pencil-skinny brows were so in style. Far too many people have yet to ditch this dated look so make an early New Year’s resolution to hide those tweezers! I’ve spent the last few years growing my brows in thicker and am amazed at how greatly shaped brows can enhance your overall look. If you are not on board with the Anastasia Beverly Hills phenomenon there is no time like the present. No brand knows brows better than Anastasia Beverly Hills. My top beauty discovery of 2014 is by far the Beauty Blender. Nothing will blend your foundation better than these sponge babies! They are worth every penny!
