Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler Expert
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Nothing gets me more excited than the holidays…minus the cold and snow of course. With all the holiday gatherings, festivities, parties and events you’ll be attending, you’re going to want to look your best. Trust me, all the pretty photos of girls on your Instagram feed are probably following some sort of beauty system to keep their face smooth, even and hair-free. December is the perfect time to experiment with new beauty techniques, grooming routines and makeup looks.
Women are doing so much more than just applying makeup before a special event. They are setting aside a few extra minutes to ensure their skin is fully exfoliated, prepped and hydrated before applying their makeup. Exfoliating is an essential part of any beauty routine, as it helps to remove dead skin for a softer, smoother finish. By exfoliating a few times a week, it will help promote skin renewal for a brighter, clearer complexion with a youthful and luminous glow. A smooth surface will also allow your other face products, like serums and moisturizers, to absorb and penetrate deeper, for better skincare results.
Next step, hydrate. This step is extremely important, especially in the dead of winter. No matter your skin type, normal, dry or oily skin, this step should never be skipped. The face is the most sensitive area on your body, and the area that’s most vulnerable to the dryness and elements, which is why it’s so crucial for it to stay hydrated. Moisturizers can help give your skin that youthful, healthy and radiant glow we all desire.
Any good makeup artist will tell you that priming the face is the most important step in any makeup routine. Not only will it help moisturize the skin, by locking in hydration, it also helps prep the skin for foundation. Its silky-smooth consistency helps foundation glide onto the skin effortlessly, and locks everything into place. It tends to leave behind a slightly tacky texture which helps ensure your foundation adheres to the skin better. It can also help to create a smooth, soft and almost airbrush effect. Depending on the formula, it can even fill in fine lines and pores.
If you have imperfections, such as redness, dark circles, breakouts or even uneven skin tones, you might not want people to see it. Foundation is the easiest way to achieve a flawless complexion. Let me clarify that you don’t need to go around with a full-face of makeup to feel fabulous. Almost every brand, even drugstores, has something decent to offer, depending on your wants and needs. Whether you’re looking for full-coverage, dewy, demi-matte, lightweight or matte, there’s a formula for you. You can still maintain a skin-like appearance with foundation on, you just need to apply it correctly.
I was a child of the 90’s, which means my brows were pretty much non-existent. We plucked out every hair and now so many of us have turned to microblading to fill them in. Although this is ideal for those that don’t want to fill in sparse areas on the daily, or for those looking for a low maintenance way to achieve thicker, fuller, youthful brows, we still need to trim and maintain those pesky hairs. The Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler Expert is not only the perfect beauty tool to achieve stylish and tamed brows, but it’s ideal for the bikini and underarm area.
Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler Expert allows you to be hair-free in seconds and can be used both wet and dry. Not only is it super sleek and stylish, it’s pink and waterproof too. The device fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and its embossed grooves allow for a slip-free grip. It comes with 2 interchangeable heads, one for the face and one for the body, alongside 2 different comb sizes.
Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler Expert face attachment is designed to trim and shape eyebrow hairs, and although it doesn’t make any claims of removing any unwanted peach fuzz, it does. To shape your brows, you’re going to need a little practice and a steady hand. Be extremely careful the first few times, as you don’t want to shave off your entire eyebrow. Start by brushing your hairs upwards to reveal the unwanted stragglers, and then take the small razor to them. The head does pivot and features 2 different razor sizes for ultimate results. After you shaped the brows, pop on the comb attachment to customise your trimming needs. Its precise comb will help tame unruly long eyebrow hairs in seconds. Simply run the comb over the brows and watch as it instantly trims to the perfect length, either 2 or 4mm. Since the blade never touches your skin, you won’t have the fear of over-doing it.
When switching to the Veet Sensitive Precision Beauty Styler Expert body attachment, this can help trim the bikini area and underarms. I love that the cutting blade doesn’t actually touch the skin, ensuring no nicks or cuts. It retails for $29.96 at major Canadian retailers, including Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Amazon.
Finish by dressing up your eyes for a flawless eye look this season. Use an eyeshadow palette to help add depth and dimension to your eyes. Try playing with both light and dark hues to achieve this. Try adding a shimmery shade to the centre of your lid to really make your eyes pop. Then take one of the darker hues to your lower lashline to help deepen up the look and tie the entire look together. Curl lashes and apply your favourite mascara. This will help create the illusion of more wide-eye and bigger eyes. To create mega volume to your lashes, apply two coats for maximum definition. You can finish your look off with a liner. It will help define the contours around the eyes, and even change your eye shape. It can help to fill in sparse looking lashes and add more definition to the lash area. You can also smudge the line to create a more dramatic and smoky effect.
You always want to exfoliate your lips before any lipstick application. Apply a generous amount of your favourite lip balm to both the top and bottom lips and take a toothbrush and gently rub back and forth. This will help to eliminate any dry patches and make it silky smooth for your lipstick. After applying your fave lippie, place a tissue over your mouth and dust on a thin layer of translucent powder. This will help lock and set everything into place and ensure your colour stays vibrant all day.
