It’s the time of year you want to look your best but late nights spent wrapping presents, having Christmas drinks with friends, not to mention the freezing cold weather, all put your otherwise flawless look at risk. Step forward the party beauty heros that will sort out your hair, make-up and skin for the festive season…
Containing three eye shadows and three lip colours, this make-up palette lets you mix up your make-up as much as you want. Plus the handy compact mirror means you can do your touch ups anywhere you please.
Nothing says festive like a red lippie and while matte lipstick is oh so on trend, carol singing, outdoor Christmas markets and under the mistletoe kissing can leave lips sore and dry. This lipstick lipgloss hybrid is the answer and it’s still a gorgeous rich red colour.
Sparkle, check, gold, check, gorgeous, check. This nail polish suits any length nails plus glitter doesn’t chip easily so you’ll get a few extra days out of your mani as you run from one party to the next. Wear alone or as a glitzy topcoat!
The perfect on-the-go size, you don’t need to worry about your volume falling flat or your updo going awry with this non-crispy hairspray that gives your hair a hit of sparkle and shine too. Winning!
Wipes aren’t acceptable every day but when you’re out for nights on the trot and your eyes are super sensitive, these are worth investing in. One wipe gets rid of the smokiest eye make-up and they’re great if you’re crashing at friend’s houses, too.
Everyone needs a palm-size perfume that you can shove in your bag and right now it needs to be just as suited to a family Christmas lunch as it is a fancy pants party. This blends warming spices and roasted chestnuts to conjure up the scent of Central Perk.
Like hairspray for your face, this won’t freeze your features but it will set your make-up in place so it doesn’t budge. Perfect if you hate reapplying at your desk or you don’t have room in your clutch for extra products.
Disguise dark circles and red raw lids with this lightweight, blendable concealer that feels like silk and barely needs rubbing in at all. Don’t forget to pop some right in the inner corners of your eyes – it will make them look wide-awake and open.
Nothing pimps up your hairstyle like a blast of dry shampoo so on those days when you don’t have time to wash and go or you need a mid-afternoon boost, this should be your go-to. With no powdery residue, it doesn’t feel sticky or heavy either.
Dip your finger in and dab onto cheekbones, browbones and your cupid’s bow to give your face a sculpted, candlelit effect. It’ll make your skin look ‘facial fresh’ rather than pale and partied out.
