BLOGMAS #9 - BEAUTY: Preparing For Your Christmas Party

Christmas is such a busy time with parties, events and catching up with friends and family so us girls need to ensure we have the right tools to make us look party ready at all times.  

Fake Tan: I love bronzing up over the Christmas season as any remnants of a summer tan have long faded and so to give myself a glowing and healthy look, I've been using the NKD SKN Matte Wash Off Instant Tan in Medium*.  It gives off such a great colour, not too dark and not too orange, it's matte so looks very natural and it doesn't give off that fake tan smell.

Nails: Nail polish is such an easy way for adding abit of glitz and glamour over the Christmas period and glitter nails are just perfect! Barry M's 'Amethyst Glitter' is a mixture of purple, green and gold sequins and will glam up any outfit.

Primer: For me, primer is an essential before your Christmas night out as you're likely to be dancing and giggling the night away and don't want to worry that your make-up is sliding off.  L'Oreal Lumi Magique is a great primer as it really does keep your make-up perfect all night long and it can also be used as a highlighter!

Eyelash Curlers: Christmas is all about big dramatic make-up and eyelash curlers are an essential tool for prepping your eyelashes before mascara.  A few goes of this and your eyelashes will look amazing and really stand out.

Hair: Glossy hair is always a winner in the Winter months and this product is an absolute wonder! Lee Stafford Agranoil Glossing Blow Dry Grey* is described as a cushioning balm to add light volume and hold to your hair, it also smoothes your hair to create gloss and shine.  I've been popping a small amount all over towel dried hair and then blow drying as normal.  My hair ends up smoother and with a lovely shine to it which is exactly what you need for your Christmas party.

What products do you use to prepare for your Christmas party?
