Beauty Essentials for those Autumn/Winter Getaways!

So it’s that time of year again. Today, we’re looking out at the ominous grey skies slowly creeping over the Lookfantastic office, as the drizzle depressingly drips down the window pane and the warm, sunny days of summer seem like a distant memory!

But it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom, ladies! If you’re thinking of taking a cheeky little break next week to a far away exotic land (well, it is half term – get yourself away!), or if you’ve got a weekend free, we’ve put together two ‘Get the Look’ pieces on how you can stay gorgeous on your trip with some amazing Lookfantastic essentials, wherever you decide to go.

Staying Chic in the City


Get the Look In the City

Now, if you’re lucky enough to be jetting off to Amsterdam, Prague, Paris or any other amazing city this weekend for a well-needed break, you’re definitely going to need some saviour beauty products to keep your look in tip-top condition. City environments can play havoc with your skin and hair, no matter the temperature, so it’s always best to get stocked up on some beauty essentials beforehand.

So what do we recommend?! Well, the Jurlique Purely Bright Mist Spray will keep your skin hydrated, cleansed and bright all day long (especially great in muggy, smoky cities!), as well as the Aveda Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Lotion which is great for both your face and body. Another kit we’ve thrown in there for good measure is the new Lord and Berry Black Wardrobe set, the perfect make-up set to keep you looking fabulous on-the-go!

Staying sexy and definitely not sweaty on the beach!

Get the Look Beach

Summer may have been and gone, but with so many Winter Break offers on the market, you can definitely still get a sprinkle of sunshine in your life. And if you’re lucky enough to be getting away this winter, here’s the lowdown on what you should be stocking in your beauty kit. The bareMinerals New Get Started Complexion Kit contains mineral-based foundations are so light that they’re great for covering up any blemishes/redness on the beach, and look totally natural so you don’t even look like you have foundation on – wowza. Obviously, the NARS Lip Gloss in Orgasm is perfect for adding a subtle slick of sexiness to your outfit, and the NUXE Sun SPF 30 Matte Protection is a must-have for protecting your skin from the sun’s rays and looking fabulous at the same time. Next keep the hair on your legs to a minimum with the Braun LS5100 Lady Shave Legs and Body, but the hair on your head in great condition with the Moroccanoil Bowling Bag – Travel and Style Gel. It’s the perfect little accompaniment to your trip.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
