Christmas is so close! Christmas party season is at it’s peak, whether it’s an office party or just a gathering of friends everybody loves dressing up and putting on their best make up. My christmas party was two weeks ago but I thought i’d share the things I loved wearing.
Festive Nail Polish
Christmas is a generally sparkly time of year so it’s only fitting to deck your nails with sparkly polish for a christmas party. I love having a plain polish on all the fingers then having a sparkly colour on the middle finger, my favourite combination being Essie’s Maki Me Happy and this unnamed green colour by W7. The other polish is called Stardust by Avon and looks amazing with my all time favourite Essie shade Fiji.
Shimmery Eye Liners
Another essential is shimmery eye liners, Christmas is also the perfect time to have glitter everywhere which is why a shimmery eyeliner is perfect for this time. I love applying one of these shades on my waterline to add a tiny festive touch. The shades from top to bottom are Gold Ornament by ByTerry, Tetra by Stila & Lionfish by Stila.
Red is the official colour of Christmas, although Coca Cola are apparently to blame for that it’s still the perfect colour to wear on your lips. These particular products are perfect for christmas parties because they have great staying power, they are MAC’s Russian Red, Rimmel’s Kate Matte in 111 and my all time favourite the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. The lip liner is Rimmel’s Exaggerate in red, it has a great formula and a reasonable price!
Fitting in with the sparkly theme the last essential for me is lots of highlighter. I don’t wear highlighters that often which is why I love to go all out on special occasions and now is the best time for your cheeks to shine like christmas baubles! My favourites of the few I own are Mary Lou-Manizer by theBalm and Highbeam by Benefit.
This was my finished look for the christmas party I attended, it was held at an exhibition centre and there were fair ground rides and a waterfall at the bar!
Have you attended a christmas party yet or do you prefer to celebrate the chilled out way with hot chocolate and ELF? Hope you’re all having a great day!
