Beauty hacks: Desk to drinks Christmas party make up

Grab some glitter and get sparkling, because party season is here and we want to look shinier than the angel on top of a tree.

We’ve got the 5 beauty products you need to take you straight from your desk to the office drinks this month to ensure that you’re ready to get in the party mood.

1. Glitter shadow

The best way to get your face looking festive is glitter. Bobbi Brown‘s cream eyeshadows are perfect for a long night because they have great staying power, and will add that Christmas cheer you’re looking for.

2. Blusher

Treat yourself this festive season by investing in the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit. The palette is a bit of a splurge, but worth the cost because the collection of 6 includes highlighters, bronzers and blushers to suit every mood. Keep this in your bag for an afternoon pick-up.

4. A bold lip

Go traditional with your festive make up and opt for a red lip for a splash of the ultimate Christmas colour. The Kevin Aucoin Matte Lip Colour in Eternal is the perfect shade of red for maximum impact at the Christmas party, and you can throw this on at the end of the day.

5. A winter scent

Have a post-work spritz to wash away the signs of the office and welcome in a winter scent. Tom Ford’s Black Orchid is decadent and perfect for a night out because of the rich, dark scent.
