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

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

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

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.
