It’s my favourite time of year, the festivities of the Christmas season make me feel all warm and cozy inside. The nights are getting darker, the Christmas movies are on and most of all, the tree is up. It’s definitely time to get this party season in gear and my party ready makeup will certainly ensure that.
With all the Christmas parties around the corner, I love getting all dolled up and sparkling up my makeup. You can easily take your look from day to night with these tips and little beauties. They will certainly be making an appearance or two on my nights out.
Whether you want to take your look from a bold lip to smokey eyes or a golden goddess to a strong winged eyeliner look, let’s take your office look from cute to festive with a few of my favourites.
Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Collection
I’ve just got my hands on this beautiful eyeshadow palette and I cannot tell you how stunning the colours are. The shades in this palette consist of 16 matte and shimmers which is perfect to allow you to take your look from the office to the dance floor. From nudes, to browns to plums, you will definitely be able to create that perfect party look, and the colour pay off is incredible. This is the cutest palette I have come across and not only will I be using this over the festive period, but I can see this also becoming a regular staple in my makeup routine. It’s just too cute to handle!
House of Lashes – Iconic
I cannot live without eyelashes. On a night out, eyelashes are the one thing that can really bring a look together. I have recently discovered the brand House of Lashes, and having watched Desi Perkins’ obsession on YouTube with her favourite Iconic Lashes from the House of Lashes brand, I had to try these out and boy am I glad I did. These are super dramatic but not over the top ridiculous dramatic. You can use these with any eye makeup look, from smokey to a strong winged look, these lashes are perfect. Pop these babies on before you hit the town, to bring a little drama to your look.
Relentlessly Red – Mac
Now which girl doesn’t love a red lipstick? I own so many but the one that is going to be making an appearance for me at all the parties and festivities this year, is Relentlessly Red by Mac. Mac’s range of lipsticks is incredible, but the one thing I always go back for is their red lipsticks. Up your red lipstick game with this beautiful shade. With a really simple makeup look, a dash of this on your lips will bring glamour and sexiness to your look. It’s such a simple touch and if you don’t want to mess about with eyeshadow or eyelashes, I can guarantee this pop of colour will amp your look up effortlessly.
Shellac – Plum Paisley
It’s time to put away the safe nude shades, and pop some colour onto your nails. Nothing brings glamour like a deep plum splash. I recently purchased Plum Paisley by CND Shellac and love how my hands look so sophisticated and night out ready. The colour isn’t too dramatic for a day time look so is perfect for the festive time of year. It’s so pretty!
Perfume – Chanel Chance
Ok so I haven’t just reserved this scent for the festivities as anyone that knows me knows, I cannot go a day without wearing my Chanel Chance perfume. This perfume is so girly and so pretty and over the years has become my signature scent. I get so many compliments when I wear this, so I guarantee a spritz of this will ensure you smell gorgeous and feel sexy all night long.
What are your party essentials this Christmas? I am so excited to use all the above, and who knows, I might just take them into 2016.
I hope you all enjoy your festivities this year and let me know what your favourite staples are this Christmas.
I’ll see you soon. X.O.
