Here are a few of our holiday inspirations to try at home with our amazing products. Or come in for the full star treatment and we’ll take you from A-Z for fabulous makeup, hair, nails and facials.
Party Ponytail Perfection
by Emily Hannah
A ponytail is the easiest and most trendy fashion statement for this holiday season. It is so versatile as it can be switched up for your numerous parties. Try a high pony for a playful, flirty look or attach your hair at the base of your hairline for a cool, sleek style. To achieve this great hair style, start by creating some texture with your curling iron, winding the hair away from your face. Gather your hair and attach with a neutral toned hair tie. Smooth all fly away strands with a small amount of La Biosthetique Luxury Spa Oil. Wind a small section of your hair around your elastic tucking the end of the strand under with a bobbypin. Tease your ponytail for added volume. Spray your holiday hair with La Biosthetique Formule Laque Fine hairspray for an additional hold. Combine with a hair ribbon or headband and you’ve got party ready hair! For extra festive points, braid or fishtail your ponytail!

To pair with a ponytail look, I am really feeling a 50’s vibe. Channel the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe with the simple elegance of a cat eye and a red lip. This look is universally flattering, easy, and glamourous. The important thing is to pick an eyeliner style that flatters your eye shape. For example an almond eye can pull off any liner look – go as dramatic as you want! If your eye is more hooded or downturned, we have special tricks to help you pull it off. Avoid a wing if you feel that the challenge is too great; simply make sure the outer corner of your liner is thicker than the inner corner. Pick a lipstick that flatters your skin tone. I am in love with Bombshell from Glo Skin Beauty for a bright red. For a deeper red, I am obsessed with Crimson from Glo Skin Beauty. If burgundy is your cup of tea, Kevyn Aucoin’s ever popular Bloodroses is perfect for you! Tie the look together with red, pink or coral blush depending on your skin tone.
For a Glamorous night Out
by Emily Hannah
A deep side part always creates a dramatic look. Start with clean damp hair, spray in some La Biosthetique Volumising Lotion and quickly blowdry. Add your hot rollers for volume and curl, wait 10 minutes and then gently brush out and spray generously with La Biosthetique Formule Laque Fine hairspray. For added volume, flip your hair to the opposite side of your usual part. Hair habitually parted in one direction is trained to lay flat. Combing in the reverse direction will give your hair instant volume and bounce. For extra wow, tuck hair on the same side of the part behind your ear smoothing La Biosthetique Molding Cream over that section for a glossy hold. Pin a hair accessory just befind your ear for a visual impact. A long line if multiple bobby pins can also create a more modern and elegantly urban look. Spray hair generously with La Biosthetique Formule Laque Ultra Strong hairspray.

Nothing says Hollywood glam like a deep side part and wavy curls! To make your eyes the focus feature, go for a sultry smokey eye. Let your skin tone and eye color determine the palette. Try bronze on the lid and smoke it out with brown or taupe in the crease. The Velvets eyeshadow palette by Glo Skin Beauty has the perfect range of metallic shadows and transition shade matte shadows. Put on a black or brown liner and lashes for added drama. A grey and black smokey eye will set a cool and sophisticated tone. The Magic Shadow Trio in Smoky Rocks by La Biosthetique creates a flawless smokey look every time. Keep in mind that warm colors such as brown or bronze are universally flattering if you’re unsure of which way to go. Try pairing the eyes with a nude lip in peach, pink or caramel. Some of my favourite nudes right now are French Nude and Pillow Talk by Glo Skin Beauty. For a sheer pink, try Blossom Lady from ILIA.
