We have put together and few hints and tips that will ensure you look, and feel, great whether you’re having drinks with colleagues, going on a date with your new man or catching up with your best friend.
The key to looking fantastic is by feeling it. There’s no point on spending hundreds of pounds on a Kardashian-esque wardrobe if you feel self conscious wearing it. Go for classic styles, colours that work with your complexion, add vibrant accessories and you can’t go wrong.
Go Back to Basics
Late nights, rich food and alcohol can all play havoc with your skin so make sure you look after it before it needs to be rescued. Remove make-up before you go to bed, always moisturise and try to exfoliate a couple of times a week. For a clear complexion, and head, get enough sleep, drink plenty of water and take a multi-vitamin.
Hair can really be put the test as we switch from hot to cold temperatures, add styling products, blast with hair dryers and poke with pins and clips. To prevent damaging you hair, use a good quality moisturising shampoo and conditioner and enjoy a deep-conditioning mask once a week. Your locks will love you and you hair will shine in those selfies.
With summer tans all but gone, if you want a natural glow ‘fake it’. There are some excellent salon treatments but you can also use a gradual fake tan product at home that looks fabulous. For the best results, whatever method you are using, exfoliate rough skin before and moisturise, moisturise, moisturise afterwards to keep the colour looking perfect for longer.
There’s no better time to grab a dark eye-liner and sparkly eye shadow than during the festive period. For instant glitz and glamour the smoky eye wins every time. Be confident in your application and use a soft colour in the corner of your eye and add darker shades as you work outwards. Practice makes perfect so by January you will be a pro!
With all that mistletoe around you want to make sure lips look kissable all season long. As well as using a moisturising lip balm and lipstick, try exfoliating regularly. Just mix a little honey and brown sugar together and rub on your lips for a natural, quick fix that leaves soft lips and a kissable smile.
There are so many hair trends out there this season but a stunning cascade of curls will never go out of style. Straighteners or heated rollers are a really easy, hassle free way to get a look that will turn heads for all the right reasons on the dance floor.
Going from party to party, travelling to see relatives and meeting up with the girls means you won’t always get time to touch up your manicure. One fail safe way to have lovely nails all Christmas long is have gels done. Choose a rich, dark grey or plum that will go with every outfit and you can be confident you won’t see any chips just as you leave the house.
Have a great time!
