10 festive party beauty essentials

The festive season is upon us, and most importantly that means party season - definitely the most wonderful time of the year. Whether it’s the annual University Christmas ball, Christmas drinks with friends or family parties, it’s all going on! So we’ve picked our top 10 party beauty heroes to keep you looking flawless all season. First up, prep…

1. Time to fake up

Our summer glows may have faded, so it’s time to fake it. This St Tropez Luxe Dry Oil gives the ultimate golden glow – it’s moisturising, quick drying and lasts up to 7 days (without the digestive biscuit smell). It’s the whole package.

2. Illuminate

If looking bronzed isn’t your thing the YSL Touche Eclat Blue Primer will give your complexion an instantly illuminated boost. Plus, it has fine gold shimmer running through it – sold.

3. The flutterati

False eye lashes add the perfect finishing touch to your party look, I’m loving these Fleur De Force Fabulous Lashes as they’re natural with softly tapered ends.

4.The statement lip

A festive party classic! I’ll be picking up this long lasting Bourjois Liquid Lipstick in a deep red.

5. Party season must-have

Setting spray for your face? Party season genius. This Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray will give your makeup some serious staying power and keep your make up looking ‘just applied’ all night long!

6. Protected from the elements

Worried arctic conditions (or more likely rain) will ruin your look? This on the go size L’Oreal Volume Hairspray won’t leave you feeling flat! Non crispy, volume and shine boosting is definitely a winner!

7. Festive fragrances

A strong winter scent is a must have. My signature 2016 festive scent will be YSL Black Opium – not too sweet but still feminine, and will be sure to last.

8. All that glitters

Glitter. Party season wouldn’t be complete without it. This Burberry chunky glitter nail polish will be sure so add some sparkle to any outfit.

9. Spray it away

All this partying can take it's toll on your skin so some TLC is essential. This Avene Thermal Water is kind to the skin and a dream when you’re feeling a bit delicate the morning after the night before.

10. Coconut oil

What can’t you use this stuff for? I love this Superdrug bargain to keep my hair and skin hydrated.
