Is it just us, or is practising make-up in front of the mirror for a special occasion seriously fun? We love trying out new ideas, techniques and products – especially when we want to up the ante with our beauty look. If you’ve got a few Christmas parties lined up this year, then have fun with make-up, hair products and more.
Let’s start with the make-up. We’ve got a ton of foundations for you to choose from, including the silky smooth MAYBELLINE Dream Satin Liquid Foundation; it’s an air-whipped formula, offering the lightness of a mousse in a liquid foundation. Mascaraed eyes are really important when it comes to party make-up. How about trying our Rimmel Extra 3D Lash Mascara? It gives volume, defines and lengthens lashes, plus it’s good for sensitive eyes too.
We’ve also got lipsticks such as the Rimmel Kate Collection Gift Set – all of these shades are perfect for a wintry look – and amazing make-up brushes like the Real Techniques Core Collection Kit, which is a must-have kit for any dressing table. We also have to share the incredible Elizabeth Arden Holiday Block Buster; this set comes with so many make-up choices, making your getting-ready time super easy.
Before even getting started on your make-up, however, it’s nice to pay attention to your skin with a full-on pamper session. We’ve got products like the Sanctuary Spa ‘Girl’s Night In’ Pamper Bag. Why not have a pamper the night before your party, or during the day if you have the time? Just make sure not to use any scrubs too close to the festivities – a week before is about right. We’ve also got some gorgeous creams to work their magic overnight before the big event – our Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Beauty Collection is a fine choice.
Finally, add some much-needed finishing touches. Our BaByliss 2667U Curl Secret Hair Styler will ensure knock-out, wavy hair that wows. On top of that, our Barry M Cosmo Berry Nail Paint will add a dash of additional colour to your get-up. Finally, a spritz of perfume goes a long way, and we love the Marc Jacobs Daisy 50ml EDT Spray.
