Makeup Essentials to Dazzle on the Holiday Party Circuit

The holidays are fast approaching, and with it comes party season! There will be plenty of opportunities to glam up your makeup look, between holiday entertaining with family and friends and office Christmas parties. ‘Tis the season to rock festive manicures, dramatic lipsticks and dazzling eye looks.

To help prep for the ever-growing list of social outings and soirées, Beauty Advisors from London Drugs have curated a list of the biggest beauty trends and colours that work best for the holidays.

 

Festive Nails
kiss-nailsessieYou can’t go wrong with the classics when it comes to holiday manicures, but try upgrading to a formula that will survive the Christmas party hop. Essie’s new 2-step Gel Couture luxurious wear formula lasts longer than the 12 Days of Christmas (up to 14 days, in fact). Essie’s Gel Couture in Hang up the Heels and Gala-Vanting are both beautiful classic shades that will match any holiday outfit.

Got a last minute party invite? Throw on a set of Kiss Gel Fantasy Ready-To-Wear Gel Nails in Faux Real for gorgeous nails in a pinch.

 

Sparkling Eyes

glitter-linerpaletteWith so many events and varying dress codes, London Drugs’ Beauty Advisors recommend an eyeshadow palette with a wide range of shades to adjust your look accordingly. A favourite is L’Oreal’s Colour Riche La Palette in Nude 1. With a selection of 10 neutral matte and shimmery shades, you can play your look up or down depending on the event. Creating a cat-eye with L’Oreal’s easy to use Superstar Eyeliner is the perfect way to amp up the look.

If a party calls for a little more sparkle, add a touch of glitter to the cat-eye. A long-time favourite is Lise Watier’s Eye Glitter Liner.

 

Holiday Face

The easiest way to light up the room at any party is with a flawless glow. Our beauty experts suggest Makeup Revolution’s Vivid Baked Highlighter; it gives a beautiful shimmery golden glow to the cheekbones in just one sweep.

 

 

Holiday Lips

The L’Oreal Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Ruby Red has the perfect gradient of bright to deep reds that will compliment all of your holiday eye looks. For an extra trendy pout, London Drugs’ Beauty Advisors recommend applying a coat of Maybelline’s Lip Studio Shine Shot Lip Top Coat in Clear Vinyl over top.

 

Products to Last the Party Circuit

cargosetting-sprayTo make sure your makeup lasts from secret Santa exchange to cocktail hour, it’s worth adding these beauty products to your holiday makeup routine. Applying an eyeshadow primer prior to your eye makeup will ensure that the shadow (and your super glam glitter liner) don’t budge all night. Try the Cargo HD Picture Perfect Eye Shadow Primer: eyeshadow will appear more vivid and will be locked in place. Once makeup application is complete, don’t forget to mist your face with L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro Mist & Fix Makeup Extender Setting Spray. This spray will keep your makeup looking flawless all night long.

We all have that one makeup obsessed friend or family member in our life. Their vanity table is overflowing with brushes, creams, fragrances and palettes, but don’t tell them they have enough: that new red lipstick has an entirely different undertone than the 20 others they own. The Beauty Advisors at London Drugs get it: as self-professed beauty junkies themselves, they know what it’s like to lust for the perfect fragrance or fancy new eyeshadow palette. To help make Christmas shopping easy, they have rounded up the top gift ideas to make any beauty lover’s Christmas merry and bright.

The Radiance Vials are like a beauty makeover in a jar, instantly restoring skin radiance, while the Eye Patches will give an instant mini-eye lift. The set also comes with mascara, lipstick and eyeliner to complete a flawless look.

 

For the Stocking Stuffer
