Get the perfect look this Christmas

We love Christmas! It’s a great excuse to play with different looks and try out the latest glam hair and makeup. Here are some of our favourite festive ideas to get you looking gorgeous for the party season:

Look after your skin…

First things first: cold weather, plenty of booze and partying till dawn can wreak havoc on your skin. If you want a glowing complexion throughout the Christmas party season, invest in a really good facial. Choose one that focuses on gently removing dead and sluggish skin, and then gives your skin some deep rehydration and moisturising treatments. It’s a stress-busting treat for you, and your grateful skin will be nurtured and ready for the party onslaught.

Stay hydrated….

Keep your skin and body hydrated, and don’t forget your beauty regime no matter how tired or tipsy you are. Drink a glass of water now and again when you’re out drinking, and never go to bed with your make up still on. Always cleanse and tone, and invest in a really good oil based moisturiser for your face.

Statement red lips…

Nothing says Christmas party like red lipstick. This winter is all about dark statement lips, from festive reds to the deepest black cherry hues. Be as dark and dramatic as you dare (and use a good lip liner to avoid that smudged clown look after a few drinks…)

Glitter extravaganza…

If there is ever a time of year when you can get away with glitter, it’s Christmas – and we love to add a bit of sparkle to the season. Luckily this year there are plenty of products around to help you find that extra shine. For a fun but sophisticated look, choose just one place to add some sparkles (you don’t want to end up looking like a Christmas tree). Choose from snow globe nail varnish, shimmering lip gloss and gold tips for your eye lashes – some of our favourites from this season.

Party eyes…

If it’s fabulous party eyes you’re going for, choose an eye shadow colour that is multi-textured. Smokey eyes are as popular as ever this year, but instead of choosing a basic grey shadow, go for one that has flecks of green, purple or gold. For an up to date look, keep that dark colour between the crease and the lid – never any further up near the brow bone (unless you’re at an 80s party…)

Up dos…

After several seasons of waterfall waves and loose curls, this year Christmas hair is all about the up-do. Buns and top knots are really popular, and this year the look is definitely more chic than casual. Pony tails are featuring strongly too, as are braided crowns – a trend that is likely to continue into 2016. Whatever up do you go for, team it with some cute dainty-but-sparkly hair accessories – this year’s must have.
