The Party Essentials You Need this Christmas

The Party Essentials You Need this Christmas

Party Season is here and in full swing! With Christmas parties, nights out and New Year’s Eve all on the cards, there is no better moment to discover some beauty saviours to keep you looking your best all night long.

Before the Big Night

We love prepping for a special occasion. First get your skin glowing with an exfoliating fruit peel like the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask; it’ll help to rejuvenate your skin and leave it beautifully smooth.

Then get your tan and manicure perfect with the Secrets of a Party Girl Set from St Tropez; we love that the tan is instant so you avoid streaks and don’t have to deal with the patchy fade.

If you feel like taking the time to try out something new with your hair, then look no further than the clever kits from label.m; we love the Bardot Beehive kit. With everything you need and step-by step instructions, it is the best way to get a professional style at home.

On the Night

If you tend to find your makeup slipping, then make sure you pop something in your bag to blot up any oils. The Benefit Porefessional Licence to Blot is incredible and we also love how easy it is to use the Shiseido Pureness Oil Control Blotting Paper on the go.

For lipstick, keep the colour staying all night long with a liquid lipstick formula; we’re obsesseed with the shade Adoring from The Balm’s Meet Matt(e) Hughes Liquid Lipstick range. It is the most gorgeous rich merlot red.

Keep any stray hairs in check with a handy handbag size hairbrush. The Kent travel size brushes come in adorable colours and are perfect for touching up your style.

We also love taking along some of our perfume to spritz on during the night. If you don;t have a travel size or are worried about spills, invest in a Travalo; it lets you fill it up with your favourite fragrance to spritz whenever you like.

The Next Day

The morning after can be a bit tough but there’s no need for partying to take its toll on your skin and hair. Give yourself a pamper and restore hydration where you need it.

Try a sheet mask like the STARSKIN After Party Brightening Face Mask to restore radiance and hydration to your skin.

Give your body a bit of rest and recovery by taking a long soak; run a hot bath and add some Epsom Salts like the Revive blend from Westlab. They are incredible at helping to ease any aches and pains and the scent of eucalyptus and spearment helps clear the mind too.

Don’t forget about your hair either. Heat styling and hairspray can take its toll and leave it parched so pop on a nourishing mask like the Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask to boost shine. You won’t regret it!
