Get Your Skin Party-Ready

Christmas may be over for another year, but the party season is most definitely still underway. As New Year's Eve approaches, now is the time to prep your party look. At Face the Future, we have a huge range of skincare and make-up products to perfectly prepare your skin and help you to look your best for the start of 2018!

A few days of Christmas indulgence can be tough on your skin and it's probably ready for some well-deserved TLC! So before you reach for the heavy-duty foundation to cover up the result of recent festivities, try these few steps to achieve a fresh and glowing complexion for the big night

At-Home Facial Massage

With a couple of days to go, treat your face to a five-minute massage. Facial massage encourages lymphatic drainage, helping to reduce puffiness and give your skin a New Year's Eve-worthy glow! Start with your favourite face oil, we love Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ and start the massage process:
  1. Apply facial oil in an outward and upward motion.
  2. Apply pressure as you sweep your first two fingers from your chin towards the jaw line. Repeat 8-10 times.
  3. Use your index fingers to again apply pressure between your brows. Slowly move your fingers along each eyebrow, and then sweep gently under the eyes and back to the bridge of your nose. Repeat 3-5 times.
  4. Use your ring finger on each hand to apply gentle pressure at the side of your nose and sweep under your cheekbones and out towards the ears to remove any tension.
  5. Enjoy your glowing skin!

Hydrating mask

Well-hydrated skin is the best base for make-up application and starting your NYE party look. Treat your skin to a hydrating mask for supple skin with a naturally moisturised texture. This Institut Esthederm Intensive Hyaluronic Mask instantly quenches skin with three forms of hyaluronic acid, so skin's water content is replenished for long-lasting hydration.Apply a thick layer of the mask to your face, neck and décolletage for 15-20 minutes while you decide which pair of killer heels to wear!

Sparkling Eyes

Yes you'll be rocking a glittery eye shadow for your big night out, but first you'll need your peepers to be sparkling bright! We love the C-Vit Eye Contour Patches from Sesderma. They reduce signs of fatigue by banishing dark circles and under-eye bags thanks to ingredients such as Vitamin C and antioxidants.Give your eyes an energy boost ready for the night ahead!

Begin 2018 with a Glow!

For a bright and radiant festive glow, turn to Oskia Get Up & Glow. The lightweight serum provides an energy-boosting luminosity thanks to ingredients such as Riboxil “ A.K.A The Beauty Sugar “ that increases the amount of oxygen delivered to the cells. Get Up & Glow also includes hyaluronic acid so it will work to maintain hydration levels in the skin.A guaranteed glow for the big New Year's Eve celebrations!Now your skin is massaged, hydrated, glowing and thoroughly prepped for the night ahead, you can move onto your make-up routine.

Start with a Beautiful Base

The foundation (see what we did there?) of a good night out, is all about feeling confident in your own skin. If you're experiencing a couple of post-Christmas pimples, redness or dehydrated skin, Oxygenetix Foundation is the helping hand you need. Choose from the Breathable or Acne Control formulas and 14 shades options to find your perfect match.The Breathable Foundation conceals flaws while healing complexions, in a gentle formula safe enough for those with rosacea, psoriasis, eczema and burns.
