Spring is all about a fresh approach to beauty, bellas. Healthy, dewy skin is what we’re seeking, so our November box is packed full of lush products to help you look lit from within. This month’s theme is ‘Ready, Set, Glow’ and to help you fake it ‘til you make it, you’ll all be receiving a lip-and-cheek pencil from the cult NY cosmetics brand loved by the ultimate fashionista, Nicole Richie!
That’s right – for November you will ALL be the first in Australia to sample LAQA & Co.’s Cheeky Lip Pencil in one of two gorgeous shades: Humble Brag and Cray Cray!
These lovely, soft matte crayons glide on oh-so-easily easily for a flattering pop of colour that does double duty on lips AND cheeks. Cheeky Lip Pencil, geddit?
Humble Brag’s the kind of rosy pink shade that suits all skin types, while Cray Cray is a fruitylicious shade of coral – best worn with a faux glow while sipping on a pina colada. Preferably on an island. While reclining. Underneath a palm tree. But I digress…
If the thought of putting lipstick on your cheeks seems kind of foreign, don’t be scared. As every Nanna worth her bag of boiled lollies knows, a cream blush (or lippie) gives the perfect, natural looking flush and is loads more flattering than a cakey powder. Just remember to blend!
How Else Can I Get My Glow On?
I’m so glad you asked! As it heats up, it’s time to streamline your beauty routine, take it easy with the slap, and focus on the basics of good skin. And that means laying off the heavy-handed contouring (#sorrynotsorry), and focusing instead on achieving radiance with illuminating prods and a healthy, clean and clear complexion.
For starters, make regular exfoliation a part of your routine as it’s the fast track to refined, radiant skin. After buffing your limbs it’s time to lose that winter coat that’s grown on your legs. We’re all about speedy solutions for busy women at bellabox so we’ve decided to include BIC’s new Soleil Glow shaver as additional bonus product in ALL YOUR November boxes!
These handy razors are a beauty bag must this summer for effortless, smooth skin in seconds. Next up, make sure you’re using the right products for your skin type. Don’t know your skin type from your elbow? Check out this nifty guide I prepared earlier. You’re welcome.
No prizes for guessing the last, and most important step. Repeat after me, sunscreen! Take your pick of chemical or physical, then use it or lose it. And by it, I mean your youthful, un-pigmented, wrinkle-free complexion. You have been warned…
As well as a LAQA & Co Cheeky Lip Pencil and BIC Soleil Glow Razor, you’ll be receiving lots of fab products to help you max out your natural glow factor. Some treats you could be scoring include a tropical lip balm and natural body scrub that smell good enough to eat, as well as a little something to add shimmer to your beach bod and a shower oil that will cut down your morning routine in half!
So, now your skin’s looking fresh as a daisy, makeup’s just the icing on top. A lick of mascara and your LAQA & Co. Cheeky Lip Pencil and Bob’s your uncle. Easy peasy summer beauty, sorted.
In November we've also teamed up with one of our favourite beauty bloggers, Katrina Maree. Super talented with a bubbly personality to match, we decided to send Katrina our hero product to reveal exclusively on her channel. Take a look at what she had to say:
