5 Essential Steps to Party Perfect Skin

'Tis the season to PARTY and with all those late nights and bottomless bubbles wreaking havoc on our skin, it’s no wonder our complexions are looking bleaker than these winter mornings!
From the essentials you need to apply daily to the special occasion edits, we have rounded up our favourite products in an easy-to-replicate regime that will give you a healthy, radiant, party-proof glow sure to turn heads.

CLEANSE
They say your makeup is only as good as your skincare. When your skin is hydrated and healthy, your makeup will melt together seamlessly leaving a cake-free, flawless finish. Needless to say, before any makeup application it is essential to cleanse your skin of all impurities, from dirt to bacteria to any remaining makeup.

For best results start off with an oil-based cleanser as these are super nourishing and deeply cleanse the skin (essential in the harsh winter weather) and our Pink Diamond Cleansing Balm leaves a beautiful luminosity to the skin so is our go-to for a long night of glam ahead.

A double cleanse using an exfoliating cleanser is the key to an all-night dewy look as it will remove that build-up of dull dead skin cells, revealing a fresh, radiant complexion underneath. You can achieve this with our Vit C Brightening Cleansing Pads which not only brighten the skin but also have a toning benefit, essential for minimising the appearance of pores and fixing uneven skin tone.

MASK
A step we never miss ahead of a big day is MASKING. Not only does it allow us a moment to really sit back and relax (something most of us can struggle with!) but it’s a great way of directing nutrients deep into the skin to work their magic. With K-beauty-inspired sheet masks popping up all around you it can be hard to find ones that truly work but look no further, our favourite Pink Diamond Instant Lifting Face Mask is all you need to tighten and brighten your pre-glam faces! Save time and maximise efficiency like Pati Dubroff by multi-masking…we like to de-puff our under eyes with the calming effects of Dragon’s Blood Eye Masks and plump our lips with the intense hydration of Dragon’s Blood Lip Masks underneath our face masks.

SERUM
Serums are often forgotten about in our daily routines but are arguably the most important potions as they are the highest concentration of active ingredients in a super lightweight formula which penetrates the skin deeper than any other. We can't live without our Dragon’s Blood Essence Mist to prep the skin with hydration, and even to set our makeup at the end! For more long-wearing glam we love Snake Serum O2 as it freezes fine lines and firms skin for a smooth base for applying makeup.

MOISTURISE
Hydrated skin exudes health (and youth) and that’s all we want for Christmas…and every day of the year! Guaranteed to be papped all night long? We always reach for Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel and it seems we aren't alone *cough cough* Kim Kardashian, as it adds definition and volume, creating a contoured look before any makeup has even been applied!

Got a day party to go to? Never leave the house without UVA and UVB protection, even during the winter months. Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Moisturiser SPF 15 is our must-have, especially at this time of year as the hyaluronic acid is second to none at retaining moisture and keeping the skin hydrated throughout the day.

FINISH
If like us you believe more is MORE when it comes to your glow, then to finish off your pre-party skincare regime we recommend skincare-makeup hybrid wonder Soft Focus Glow Drops to unleash a seriously youthful glow, lock in moisture all night whilst also providing a protective barrier against free radicals and other aggressors.

It. Is. Everything.

Happy pampering! xo
