How this CEO gets ready for New Year's Eve

Get ready with Angela, founder of Savor Beauty

As the decade comes to a close, I practice the same skin routine that I've honed for this year and every year. Before a big event, I prep three days in advance to make sure my skin is stress-pimple free + flawless for makeup application.

Here's my New Year's Eve routine from skincare to non-toxic makeup!


I always start with the Double Cleanse Kit. Massage 4-5 drops of the Pre-Cleanse Oil in tiny circles in upward motions quickly to stimulate my skin. It smells like toasted coconuts with jasmine -- total tropical island escape. Then layer the Pearl Cleansing Cream right on top and repeat. Next, hop in the shower + rinse off. 
Three days before an event, I apply the Cherry Collagen Peel all over my skin. I love the cooling sensation, and how silky smooth my skin feels after! I let it steam for 2-3 minutes and wash off. If my skin is feeling particularly textured, I do the Manuka Yuzu Drop cocktail: equal parts Yuzu Peel + Manuka Honey Mask.


I always spritz the Lavender Toner to rebalance skin pH after a peel. When my skin is still damp with the toner, I layer on the Raspberry Serum, which gives me a dewy finish + nourishes my naturally dry skin.


4. I forego the towel + slip on a cotton robe and moisturize from top to bottom with the Sweet Baby Oil and mix with 1 drop of essential oil (depending on my mood, for NYE I'm going for Rose!). If you're feeling festive, I take a bit of highlighter or pearlescent eyeshadow on a brush and sweep over areas I want to pop: top of my shoulders, along the collarbones and tops of the thighs.


I prefer light coverage since makeup can make your skin look dehydrated. One of my favorite makeup tricks is to take a mineral foundation and 2 drops of the Raspberry Serum to make a multi-tasking liquid foundation. Our West Village makeup artist Carly suggested taking a blending sponge and 1-2 drops of the Pumpkin Serum to dab onto the skin for the ultimate dewy glow!
6. Tap on a cream blush, do a little cat wing eyeliner + a bold lip (I love Ilia's clean lipsticks that we also carry in the spa). Finish with a few spritzes of the Lavender Toner and you're good to go!
