Party Season Beauty Essentials

Since the party season is well and truly in full swing (almost coming to an end) I had a quick look around my beauty collection to find my favourite items that keep me going and hopefully looking okay.

Extras: Watch- Marc by Marc Jacobs, Perfume- Estee Lauder Modern Muse, Necklace- Lola & Grace

My makeup doesn’t change too much for a party although I always use a primer to keep my makeup looking its best all night long. My favourite at the moment is the Benefit Porefessional as I find it really helps the longevity of my makeup. I also am permanently attached to my Origins Plantscriptions Concealer and it only leaves my bag when I use it. Christmas and New Year is also a great excuse for a bright bold lip and dramatic lashes. Keep it traditional with a classic red or have fun and go for a bright pink or purple.

For nails I always look for a colour that will be festive but still versatile and that will last. I’ve been loving the Nails Inc Gel Effect Polishes which apply easily, dry quickly, remain shiny and are long lasting. St James is the perfect festive red and Kensington High Street is the ultimate winter shade.

For hair I say the bigger the better, I rely on my Cloud 9 The O heated rollers (also love the Enrapture ones) and a whole load of Bumble and Bumble Dryspun Finish or Pret-a-powder if my hair also needs a little freshening up.

Since my legs/arms don’t come out very much during the winter they always need special attention when they do. I’ve ben using the He-shi Express Liquid Tan teamed with the He-shi Luminous Shimmer perfectly tanned, glowy pins.

After a night out I always reach for the Radical Hydrating Cleanser, it removes all my makeup and feel super luxurious which is exactly what I want just before going to bed after a long night. I often get very dehydrated skin due to all the stress, bad diet choices and alcohol over this time of the year so have been addicted to the Clarins Blue Orchid Face Oil which is a must for dehydrated skin.
