Perfect Your Holiday Décolleté

With holiday parties in full swing, it’s easy to let the glitz and glamor go straight to our heads. We twist our hair into sleek updos, perfect the season’s beauty trends and drape ourselves in sparkly jewelry - all while ignoring the delicate area below our jawlines.

The neck and chest area (the décolleté or décolletage) is one of the first areas of the body to show the telltale signs of aging. With thinner skin, fewer sebaceous glands and a high risk of sun exposure, this oft-neglected area can quickly take on a less than glamorous look. But, don’t be too quick to swap your plunging neckline for a high collared number. Instead, try these tips and tricks to perfecting a smooth and sultry décolleté.

Eminence Organics Hibiscus Ultra Lift Neck Cream

Prep Your Skin 

For picture perfect décolletage, extend the steps in your skin care routine past your jawline, devoting special attention to your neck and chest. Give your skin an overnight treat with our award-winning Monoi Age Corrective Night Cream for Face & Neck. This deeply hydrating, fragrant cream firms the skin’s appearance, improving the look of elasticity and leaving it moisturized and revitalized by morning. For a pre-party lift, enhance your routine with our Hibiscus Ultra Lift Neck Cream - apply to your neck and chest in gentle, upward sweeping motions and watch while all-natural ingredients give sagging skin an instant boost.

Contour & Highlight

Contour and highlight the neck and chest to accentuate your glow and camouflage imperfections. Use our Cinnamon Bronzer Sun Defense Minerals to contour, adding definition to your chest and collarbones (Step 1, below). Dust a mineral illuminator across the tops of the collarbones to make them pop and above the neckline to make cleavage appear more full (Step 2). Then, take a big, fluffy brush to blend contour and highlight lines for a flawless, barely-there finish (Step 3). Step back and admire your subtly sun-kissed décolletage.

Add Some Sparkle

Top off your look with a touch of sparkle that draws attention to your party-ready décolleté. Crystals are still shining bright for jewelry trends and are the perfect accessory for an understated party dress. If statement isn’t your style, layered necklaces and delicate pearls are just as fashion-forward this holiday season.
