Chocolate and Makeup – need we say more? This season has begun to tease us with a few showers and cold weather – chilly enough to embark on a hot chocolate mission. If you’re like every other chocolate maniac that faints at the slightest hint of chocolate, we’ve got a few delectable items that infuse this aphrodisiac into your regular beauty regime – minus the calories and after-guilt.
Let the scent linger.
You know how it is when that smell reaches your nose – all things stop, your eyes widen, and you start taking a few whiffs of what has to be one of the best and most addicting scents created – chocolate. From perfume to bath bubbles, indulge your senses and mildly torture yourself – and others around – with a spritz of chocolate dense enough to remain and cause a stir wherever you go:
For a smooth, clean feel, try Cocoa Butter Body Butter from the Body Shop. Philosophy not only offers an extensive facial lineup but is the master in creating body wash and lotions in a variety of “flavors” one has to stop themselves from gulping down. The three-in-one bath product can be used as a shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath – from Fudge Cake to a chocolate lover’s paradise (milk, white and dark chocolate in one special set). Immerse yourself in any of these chocolate-filled products that will make you believe you’ve become a tasty dessert.
From actual chocolate ingredients to chocolate-inspired, these beauty items help create a sexy, smokey look.
For a light bronzed look, try Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder, which actually combines the therapeutic effects of real cocoa powder with their signature bronzing pigments to create a unique matte bronzer that neutralizes red and evens out and enhances all skin tones. Within the same line, Too Faced introduces high-quality mascara in a rich-chocolate hue for voluminous lashes, an alternative to the same black color you may always use.
