With the cold front rolling in and the winter coats coming out of storage it's time to focus on one of the most important aspects of the season, winter beauty! This year is all about taking high-maintenance steps for a low-maintenance morning routine to guarantee you get a few extra minutes in bed. From lash and eye care to finding the right tools for you, we have all the essentials to keep you looking and feeling fabulous this season!
1/ Lash Out
Fake lashes are not for everyone. Ditch the strips and extensions and use what you were born with. We love the new Estée Lauder Turbo Lash mascara, €27, which promises to keep your lashes up all night. It’s highly pigmented to really darken the lashes. Use alongside their Revitalising Lash + Brow Serum, €31, for best results.
2/ Bright Eyes
Keep your eyes fresh and relaxed by using an anti-fatigue eye serum in the run-up to the wedding. The sensitive skin geniuses at La Roche Posay have just released their first eye serum called Hyalu B5, €26, which promises to reduce the appearance of lines, as well as signs of fatigue.
3/ Italian Innovation
Launching its first beauty collection, Italian powerhouse Prada has just dropped a plethora of pigmented shadows and skin-enhancing formulas. And helping to ensure they glide across your face with expert precision, it adds a series of soft-to-touch brushes like the Powder Diffuser, €70.
4/ Perfect Hair
Refresh your hairstyle during the day with a spritz of dry shampoo to remove any sweat and oil and to help restore volume. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo, €38, has just been released in jumbo size. It refreshes while adding shine and smells amazing, too.
5/ Nail Tone
Whether you choose long or short, your nails should be a primary focus. Check out 14daymanicure.com for some incredible shades and textures. Pink is timeless for brides and there is something for everyone in the Hey Doll collection, €5 each. Try the Sheer Pink for something more natural.
6/ Smiles Better
Get a brighter, whiter smile the easy way by incorporating some Teeth Whitening Accelerator Gel, €29.95, from Spotlight Oral Care into your daily brushing. Just add a pump or two to your toothbrush on top of your usual toothpaste and brush as usual for two minutes twice a day. This contains the active whitening ingredient hydrogen peroxide and an ingredient called PAP to remove stains and brighten your smile.
