Whether you are celebrating the big day with your partner or are celebrating ‘Galentine’s Day’ with your favourite girls why not spend some extra time getting ready? Well here are the best beauty products to do just that!

This universal beauty balm will give you a lit from within glow and smooth out any fine lines and wrinkles! You will look glowing and your skin will be clear of lines and imperfections! It is the perfect first step in your date night beauty routine.

 

Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter in ‘Kitten’

The most perfect highlighter you could ever use. This highlighter has a bouncy texture that melts into the skin. You are left with a lightweight highlight that will not accentuate lines or pores and will leave you naturally radiant. On date night you want to look like your glowing without looking glittery or over done, and this is the way to do it! It adds the perfect ‘notice me’ touch to any makeup look.

 

 Too Faced Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette

The first thing you will notice when you open this palette is the amazing scent. This palette smells like sweet peaches! Who wouldn’t want that. But other than the smell this is a gorgeous eyeshadow palette full of pigmented and long-lasting matte shadows. The colours are warm toned and are very romantic. On date night its good to go for matte rose tones that will accentuate your eyes without looking like your tried too hard.

Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara

What is sexier than big bold notice me lashes?! If you don’t want the fuss of falsies than this is the mascara for you. It gives you bold drama and long lasting volume. So start batting your lashes and the rest will be history.

 

 

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

There are so many foundations out there, and honestly I’ve tried just about all of them. And there is one that I keep going back to over and over. The Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk is a beautiful and natural foundation. It gives you a gorgeous radiance and looks like your skin but better! It will cover everything you want to cover without looking cakey or overdone. You will just look like you have perfect skin.

So you’ve spent hours getting ready for your date and have the perfect face of makeup, but how will it look good all night?! That’s where this setting spray comes in. It is a facial spray that will lock in your makeup from morning to night. So no matter where V-day takes you your makeup will look good no matter what!

 

 Tom Ford Velvet Orchid Perfume

Nothing sets the mood quite like scent. And who wouldn’t want to smell intoxicating especially on Valentines Day. Tom Ford Velvet Orchid is the more feminine fragrance to the original black orchid. This scent is bold and intensely seductive. Notes of Orange Blossom, Suede Accord and Vanilla will give you a bold and sexy scent that will demand attention.

   

Nude Stix Magnetic Matte Lip Color

Lipstick is usually an issue when it comes to giving a kiss to someone you love. However NudeStix has created a solution to the problem of lipstick transfer! They have a new lipstick called the Magnetic Lip Colour which is transfer proof. And I have tested it and it really works! It is like a magnet for your lips and won’t budge all night! My favourite colour is ‘Rose’ but they have a few shades from nude to bold to choose from!

  

Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner

Slathering on this juicy, fruity rose-scented body conditioner has become a beauty ritual we can’t do without. Packed with cocoa, shea and cupuacu butters along with brazil nut, almond and argan oils, this luxurious conditioner deeply moisturizes skin without a greasy feel. After washing up, massage it all over your body, then rinse and pat dry for supremely soft, vanilla and rose-scented skin. Need I say more?

  

Lust Whole Lotta Love Bubble Bar

Whether you have a hot date, a night out with the girls, or some much needed alone time planned why not start it with a festive bubble bath? Lush has bubble bombs which add colour, fragrance and bubbles to your bath. The whole lotta love bar is two red hearts with skin softening shea butter in the middle that will leave your skin so touchably soft.

Beauty Products We Love to Get Fancy and Festive with this Holiday Season

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are less than four weeks away! Besides getting together with friends and family, and finishing up that super long shopping list, taking the time to look good often becomes a chore instead of the fun and enjoyable thing it should be. Our brand new social media ambassador, Brittany Sarah, is here to add some inspiration to your holiday beauty line-up with some of her favourites below. 

YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint

During the holiday season I love to put my best face forward, and this foundation helps me do that. It has a beautiful radiant glow that will give you a fresh dewy complexion. It is my go-to for a perfect medium coverage that still looks glowing and natural!

Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette

Highlighter is always a good idea no matter what the season. But especially during the holidays I like to shine. This palette gives you endless colour options for that perfect glow! I like to put this on my cheekbones and on my shoulders and collar bones for that extra holiday party sparkle.

Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions Palette

This eyeshadow palette is the perfect combination of matte shades and shimmer shades! You can make so many holiday looks with these colours. There is even a silver glitter metallic shade if you are feeling extra daring.

Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter + Glow Liquid Eyeshadow

The thing I love most about holiday glam is the glitter! Tis the season for glitter everywhere. Stila makes it so easy to perfect that glittery smokey eye. This is a liquid glitter so you don’t have to deal with any mess. Just apply on your lids and you are good to go!

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint

Everyone is always looking for that perfect red lip during the holidays. Rihanna and her new makeup line Fenty Beauty has created a universal red that is perfect for every person! It comes in a very long lasting matte formula.

Natasha Denona Chroma Crystal Top Coat

 f you are not quite ready for glitter but still want that pop of sparkle on your eyes then this is the product for you! These Crystal Top Coats add the perfect slight glow to your lids. They are so easy to apply over shadows or on their own. You can even use your fingers to apply!

Becca Liquid Crystal Lip Topper Glow Gloss in ‘Champagne Dreams X Bellini

Keeping with the sparkle theme, these new lip glosses from Becca are perfect for the holidays! They are great glosses but add a sparkly almost holographic shine to the lips. They come in many colours but I personally love this peachy nude that has pink glitter throughout. Just adds a little something extra to the lips.

IGK Pre Party Hair Strobing Glitter Spray

Glitter Hairspray may make you feel like you are back in the 80’s but IGK is bringing it back in the perfect way. This is a glitter spray for your hair that if used sparingly adds the perfect amount of shine and sparkle to your hair without looking over done. Perfect for NYE! Unfortunately, this product is so popular that it’s currently sold out! But make sure to keep checking their site for new stock.

Velour Lashes in ‘Fluff n’ Wispie’

If you don’t normally wear falsies then the holidays are the perfect time to add that extra glam! I love these ones by Velour because you can re-use them (for all of the parties this season!) and they are so fluffy and wispy which is totally on trend!

Replica ‘By The Fireplace’ Perfume

This is my current favourite fragrance! It is so perfect for winter and the holidays. It combines smoky and woody accords with the subtle sweetness of chestnut to evoke a familiar but forgotten moment—the warmth of a cozy fireplace in midwinter. It smells sexy and elegant and exactly like the holidays!

——————-

Unfortunately, far too often the real meaning of the holiday season is lost among the stress and chaos of trying to do it all.  So don’t forget to take the time to slow down, relax and pamper yourself with any of the above suggestions this holiday season!

Winter Wonders! Products We Swear by During the Cold Winter Months

Selections by Jessica of Fancy Face Inc.!

Even though winter and the holiday season can be full of warm and happy moments spent with friends and family, it is anything but warm outside with the harsh, drying effects of the wind and cold weather. Needless to say, your skin and beauty routine will require some extra love and care to help you look great and party-ready during these cold winter months.

Here we turn to one of our amazingly talented Fancy Face makeup artists, Jessica, who shares some of her favourite products to use this winter. 

KOPARI Coconut Lip Love – Hydrating and glossy, perfect for the winter. Not sticky at all and cruelty free. It also smells like the beach so who wouldn’t love it! 

            

Tarte Cleansing Cutie Scrubber – Picked this up about 2 months ago and I have been obsessed. It really takes your cleanser to the next level and actually feels like it’s getting all the dirt & build up out of your skin! 

                     
Ouai Haircare Dry Shampoo Foam – the ultimate dry shampoo. This will keep your hair clean and smelling fresh foreverrrr! 
                           
CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion (for normal to oily skin) – An amazing face cream that leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Best part? DRUGSTORE item!! 


               
Too Faced Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette – I love every single colour in this palette. I’ve been using it nonstop since the Sephora sale and have nothing but good things to say! I’m also a sucker for things that smell amazing. 

          
Dose of Colors “Undressed” Lip Gloss – The best nude gloss. Pigmented enough that it is perfect to wear alone or on top of a lipstick. 


                 
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation – My go to foundation for any time of year! Lightweight, full coverage, and longwearing. 


                
BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer – It’s that time of year when our skin transitions to being more on the drier side. For me it’s especially under my eyes and around my nose. This concealer is perfect as it’s so hydrating but still gives great coverage! 


        
Josie Maran Pure Argon Oil – If you haven’t yet tried this you are missing out! I put this on after cleansing my face and let it soak in. After a few minutes I’ll put my facial moisturizer over top. Since I have oily skin (but I get dry patches in some areas), I only do this at night for extra hydration in the winter! Can be used on skin, hair & nails! 
              
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Cruella” – Of course, I had to finish off with a red lip for the holidays. Loving this one especially because it doesn’t dry my lips out and it lasts! 

Decleor Paris Aromessence Neroli Amara Oil Serum – This serum is very effective against the cold weather and is meant to be applied before your moisturizer. Its ingredients include Neroli essential oil, parsley, hazelnut and sweet orange essential oils. Try it to give your skin a hit of hydration and radiance boost, while the calming scent of the oils soothes your senses.

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisture Cream – an essential part of any skincare routine is the moisturizer. Bobbi Brown has been a global top-seller for a long time, and this cream is a lightweight version of their iconic Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm that is especially suitable for normal to dry skin, particularly those with dry skin patches. It’s perfect for layering and prepping skin for foundation and makeup, and is absorbed almost instantly with minimal waiting time.
