Come the festive season, there is a lot of buzz around looking your best. Scouting for the ultimate Diwali outfit becomes the dream for many, but they often miss out on refreshing the vanity kit with a beauty must-have for the festive season. The festivities are a time to pull out your makeup stash from shimmery eyeshadow to blush, highlight and contour palettes and your favourite skincare products for that luminous glow. To help you out, here is Luxebook’s edit of the ultimate beauty must-haves for the festive season.
D’you Eyes & Shine
A hectic social calendar can often leave you feeling tired and maybe with a few under-eye bags as well. So as the nights get longer, it’s time to give your under-eyes a little extra TLC. Hence, making under-eye masks one of the beauty must-haves for the season. D’you’s eyes and shine are made from 100% medical grade silicone and act as an occlusive agent helping your skincare products absorb better under the eyes. Use them early morning or at night and say hellos to super nourished, hydrated and plump under-eyes within just 15 minutes.
One of the downfalls of the festive season is the rising pollution levels across the country and bad hair days become a part of your day.
