8 GOLDEN HOUR TREATS
beauty | 14 November 2016
Days are getting darker and shorter and you’re full on in your autumn depression. There’s no better time than to treat yourself to some goodies than now!
We’ve compiled eight of our favourite fall treats that will help you through these dark days and hopefully make your days a bit brighter!
1./ Rodial 24 Carat gold body soufflé
Treat yourself to a soft and luxurious body cream like Rodial’s 24 carat gold body souffle. The whipped cream feels ultra smooth on the skin and contains pure liquid gold for a golden luminosity on the skin. The cream contains bee venom as well to help plump and firm up your skin (smells amazing as well).
2./ Estée Lauder Cushion stick foundation
My favourite product of late is the cushion stick by Estée Lauder. It comes in a handy stick which makes it easy for you to pop in your bag and apply your make up on the go. What I love about it most is the cushion application – it applies your foundation evenly and gives you a beautiful airbrushed look!
3./ Lancôme Cushion highlighter
Another cushion beauty product I had to give a try is the Lancôme cushion highlighter. This compact highlighter (in a stunning glittery gold packaging) is one of the best highlighting innovations. The cushion makes it so easy to apply and it gives off this radiant glow on the cheeks. I have been using this for weeks now and have barely touched my usual go-to highlighting products.
4./ Tom Ford Velvet Orchid lip color
I am so happy with this latest edition in my stash. The new Tom Ford Velvet Orchid lip color is a beautiful mix between a rich purple, rosy tones, pink and violet with an iridescent shine. I will try to do a look with this lip color soon but trust me when I say this is one of the prettiest and most luxurious looking color blends out there that is well suited for most skin tones.
5./ Gold Collagen supplement
I’ve been giving Gold collagen supplements a try for a week now. Collagen supplements are said to enhance your skin radiance and smoothness from within. I am in my first week and still have minor results. I will write about my findings after I have finished my one-month trial. But so far so good!
6./ Dolce & Gabbana The One
One of the prettiest golden perfume bottles in my perfume stash! This popular scent is a sensual deep floral perfume with fresh fruity notes and white lilies. When worn on the skin, a rich woody undertone comes through. It’s the perfect perfume to wear in the evening.
7./ Yves Saint Laurent Contouring Couture
I don’t leave the house without this contouring shade on. Finding the right contouring kit for your skin tone is difficult. What I find best is to go to your beauty store and have the experts advise you on the best shades. For my yellow undertones, it happened to be this YSL contouring couture palette in Golden contour.
8./ Lancôme Les Palette des Reves
The palette of dreams! I was saving this palette for my holiday gift post (because look at the beautiful glittery golden case), but I couldn’t wait to share this guys now. If you’re new to beauty or you’re still looking for an eyeshadow palette with soft neutrals for every-day wear (or for work for instance), this is your palette. The palette contains 6 matte and shimmery shades (as inspired by Lisa Eldridge) to create chic and dreamy looks. The two dark shades are perfect for blending out your smokey eyes.
