For your skin … L’Occitane Harmonie Divine Collection

When choosing a skincare regime, you’ll want one that contains only the best ingredients. This new collection from L’Occitane contains age-defying ingredients such as the Red Algae Jania Rubens, a type of red seaweed found in the mineral-rich waters of the Gulf of Calvi and is known for its regenerative properties; and the Organic Immortelle Millesimee, an organic essential oil extracted from the Immortelle flower, renowned for never fading even after being plucked from its roots. When combined, these powerful ingredients work to brighten dull skin, smoothen skin texture, and soften expression lines. This collection includes a serum, an eye balm, and a face cream.

L’Occitane Harmonie Divine Collection is available at L’Occitane boutiques islandwide. 

For your face … YSL Beauty Holiday Collection

Once your skin is taken care of, it’s time to get playful and show off your best features. With so many makeup brands out there, how do you decide which to choose? For me, I’m very partial towards YSL – the quality of their products is always top-notch and never fails to deliver the goods. I’m particularly excited about their Beauty Holiday Collection as it includes my all-time favourite Touche Eclat — the classic skin-perfecting tool — in a new limited-edition gold and silver snow-effect casing, as well as a brand new makeup palette with all the festive colours of gold, bronze, plum, and metallic rose.

Also in this collection, look out for the amazing Couture Eye Jewels Sparkle Clash Edition. Instead of painstakingly trying to draw the perfect wingtip or graphic eyeliner style, simply stick on these tailor-made crystal adhesive eyeliners. One pair is black with silvery crystals for that smouldering look, and the other is gold with gold crystals for that diva-esque flourish. Best part is, these stick-on eyeliners are reusable!

YSL Beauty Holiday Collection is available at YSL Beauté counters and boutiques islandwide.

For as long as she can remember, Vanessa has always wanted to escape to a place where no one knows her. But because that’s not always possible, she often retreats into the world of books and pop culture. When she does get to travel, she prefers going off the beaten track and back to nature. Some of her best memories include napping in a treehouse in Laos and cycling across padi fields in Bali.
