Art Basel, and the holiday season to follow, is a busy time of the year for Miami locals and visitors alike. The city is buzzing, and everyone’s social calendars are lit up with events.
Dinners, gallery showings, and after parties are all on the agenda, which is why we are setting aside extra time for our self-care rituals. Ahead, Violet x Grace editors share their 5 beauty essentials to help treat yourself (or others) during the busy season ahead.
Ready, set, shop!
La Bouche Rouge
Art Basel and the holidays are a time to catch up with friends and family, and after a glass or two of wine and a few hours of conversation, it’s fairly easy to feel parched. Wave au revoir to dry lips, thanks to La Bouche Rouge’s 2-step lip care set. Step 1 involves rubbing a delicate exfoliant on your lips to scrub away dead skin. Step 2 includes a nourishing, silicone-free balm to plump lips overnight, so you can wake up looking and feeling refreshed.
Perfect for hiding tired eyes after long nights, Garrett Leight's chic sunnies are the perfect coverup when there isn't any concealer in sight. And with Art Basel in full swing, we are sure to be logging a few late nights thanks to the festivities.
We consider home fragrances to be the perfect beauty essential for their ability to help us relax and unwind after an eventful day. Fornasetti’s candles are handcrafted in Italy and poured into beautifully designed ceramic vessels that smell as wonderful as they look. The candle is scented with the brand's signature Otto fragrance, an enlivening blend of Mediterranean herbs, woods and incense.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian
There is no better on-the-go beauty refresher than a chic perfume, and Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s globe trotter refills are the perfect travel size for any bag.
African Leather by the Paris-based fragrance brand MEMO is our go-to fragrance for it’s olfactory complexity. Warm, spicy and heady–you only need a spray, or two, of this concentrated Eau de Parfum to last you all day long. The longer you wear it, the more it transitions from warm to spicy as the notes of cardamom, geranium, and leather evolve on the skin.
