Getting Party Ready

Okay, so I haven't got any Christmas party plans, but I'm sure that I will head out for a few cocktails between now and New Years Eve. I have recently devised a pamper and effortless makeup routine that will help me get party ready. 

For a party skin pick me up, you can't beat the Una Brennan Vitamin C Exfoliator and Soap and Glory Body Scrub to prep your skin for fake tanning, keeping dry skin at bay and genuinely just giving it a lovely radiance. After shaving and moisturising with the Laura Mercier Creme Brûlée Body Souffle to give my skin a sweet treat, I then go onto my makeup, where I like to bring out all of the sparkly picks. 

I don't do anything special with my base makeup except for set it a little more using the NYX HD Loose Powder to disguise large pores and to keep my skin looks super smooth.The Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer is a new addition to my makeup routine after I went on the search for a bright, pale concealer to highlight my under eye area. Although the shade I picked -01 Ivory- is slightly deceiving as it goes on yellow but settles down to a more pink toned hue, it's nothing that a bit of powder can't fix. It's super lightweight on the skin, yet covers a magnitude of sins - Perfect for party touch ups! 

Of course highlighter is high on my priority list because dewy skin is a must-have during the festive period. I like to double up, using both the Cover FX Moonlight Enhancer Drops and The Balm Mary Lou Manizer to add a sheen to the skin, whilst the Hourglass Luminous Flush Ambient Lighting Blush is perfect for adding a slight colour to my cheeks after contouring. 

The eyes and lips are where I like to experiment as I always reach for the bronze eyeshadow quads, sparkly offerings and anything that screams Christmas to me - Like a vibrant red lipstick. The Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette is super gorgeous and is an easy way to create a soft, smokey eye especially if you're staying away or if you need something quick to put on. 

Are you going to any parties this Christmas?
