Can you believe that you’ve opened almost a week’s worth of Advent Calendar beauty treats? 

December is fully underway, which means Christmas is coming! And at Glossy HQ we’re beyond excited to have something to look forward to! 

Want to know more about the six products you’ve already unwrapped? Here are some insider tips, tricks and knowledge to help you enjoy your new beauty finds.


Day One: Brushworks – HD Complexion & Contouring Sponge Set 

The perfect set for contouring, strobing and highlighting, these three sponges will allow you to apply your base makeup flawlessly. Use the bigger ones to cover large areas like your cheeks and forehead, then use the micro sponge for small areas like under your eyes or around your nose. 


Day TwoIllamasqua – Liquid Eyeliner 

For a wonderful winged eyeliner look this festive season, we’ve got you covered. This liquid eyeliner boasts a precise, felt tip-like point that glides effortlessly along your eyelid without skipping or pulling. Better yet, the jet black, smudge-proof formula dries to a semi-matte finish and stays put all day long! 

Three Fab Liquid Eyeliner Looks To Try 

  1. Double winged - This is a super easy way to up your liner game. Start with a base line, following the upper lashes like you would if applying a cat eye but when you get to the outer corner of your eye, flick the line up a little bit more. Then apply the second line, ensuring you keep both wings on the thinner side. 
  2. Fishtail liner - Equal parts Ancient Egypt and totally futuristic! Pull off this clean-lined look by drawing your usual gentle winged flick on your top lashes. But then add a second black line under your bottom lashes, from your inner corner to your outer corner and then add a little flick to the end of this line too. 
  3. Floating crease liner - Floating eyeliner is totally of-the-moment and unconventionally cool. Easily achieve this by adding a second line (as well as your usual flick) between your eye crease and eyebrow, which curves following the shape of your crease. 

Day Three: Laboratoires Filorga Paris – NCEF-REVERSE Supreme Multi-Correction Cream 

Formulated with Filorga’s unique complex of 50 revitalising ingredients, as well as hyaluronic acid, collagen and vitamins A, H and E, this treatment smooths out wrinkles, reduces the appearance of sagging skin and evens out the tone of your complexion. Apply onto cleansed skin morning and night for a gorgeous, glowing complexion! 


Day Four: Pixi – Glow Mist 

Enriched with aloe vera, fruit extracts, propolis and argan oil, this multipurpose lightweight spray hydrates, nourishes and soothes your skin. Use it before applying makeup to protect your skin, or after applying makeup to set it in place and create a dewy finish. 

The Benefits Of Pixi Glow Mist 

  • Gives a glowing, luminous and smooth complexion 
  • Hydrates, protects and nourishes. 
  • Sets makeup and adds a dewy finish 
  • Refreshes makeup throughout the day, hydrating skin and adding glow. 
  • Can also be used on hair for a luminous, healthy glow 

Day Five: Lime Crime – Mini Velvetines Liquid Lipstick 

Boasting a silky, highly-pigmented formula that is infused with French vanilla, this matte lipstick glides effortlessly onto your pout and applies a long-lasting swipe of colour that stays put without drying out your lips. Sweep it onto your pout 15 minutes after applying a lip balm. 


Day Six: Lee Stafford – Hair Apology 10-in-1 Treatment Spray 

Filled with repairing ingredients, this multi-tasking conditioning spray works to repair and reduce damage, whilst also preventing future breakage by hydrating and moisturising your hair. Simply spritz it onto your clean, towel-dried hair from mid-lengths to ends, then dry as normal. Smooth, glossy locks await!

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
