Party Essentials

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

Party season is officially here, and with Christmas and New Years right around the corner, I thought I'd share with you some party bits and bobs I can't live without.

For my hair, I always love to curl it, but I find it goes a bit frizzy and lacks some of it's sleekness and shine. To combat this, and in an attempt to get my hair game on point, I love to use the Adeva Brilliant Spray on Shine which does exactly what it says on the tin. It's a lightweight spray which smooths hair and adds an extra bit of shine. Perfect for the holidays. Body oils are also something I love to use on my legs and arms to make them look super Victoria Secret like. My favourite is a very affordable option from Dove. Their purely pampering noising body oils are great as they don't contain chunks of glitter and it makes your skin glow.

For makeup there's nothing I love more than a golden smokey eye, super cliche I know, but I love the way it looks. The original Urban Decay Naked palette has the perfect shades for this. Half Baked is great over the lid with Smog and Darkhorse blended into the crease and lower lash line, my favourite colour combo from this palette. Another one for the eyes would be the Magnifibres Brush on False Lashes which I received in some kind of beauty box. This is one of those things I was very sceptical about but it actually does work. It contains loads of white fibres which you apply on your lashes with a normal mascara wand, then just follow up with your favourite mascara. Although it can get in your eyes and be quite messy, it's a super easy way to get stand out lashes.

Cheeks I tend to go quite subtle as normally I'll go heavy on the eyes or lips so I want something that won't compete. I love highlighting blushers as they add that extra glow to skin which is really flattering. The MAX Factor Cream Puff Blushers are fab for this. If I do go red (of course) on the lips, I go in with a liner first. One I love is the MAC Trust in Red which is a nice cherry shade. Follow this up with a red lip stain and you're good to go. On the other hand if you want a nude option, a lot more practical, then MAC's Velvet Teddy would be my pick. A browny pink nude which is moisturising, can't go wrong really.
