Makeup Tips: 

Amp up your eyeshadow game: 

Christmas is the perfect time to go bold with your eyeshadow. Think glitter, shimmer, and metallic shades. Not sure how to apply them? You can start by applying a base shadow in a similar shade to your skin tone. Then, use a dampened brush to apply the glitter or metallic shadow on top. This will help the shadow adhere better and give you a more intense colour. You can also use tape to create sharp lines and achieve a perfectly blended look.

Go red with your lips: 

A classic red lip always looks chic and is especially festive for the holidays. If you're new to wearing lipstick, start with a drugstore brand like Maybelline or L'Oreal. For a longer-lasting look, opt for liquid lipstick. My personal favourite is the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick.

Get glowy skin: 

Nothing says "Christmas" like glowing, radiant skin. Start by exfoliating your skin with a sugar scrub to achieve this look. This will help eliminate any dead skin cells and reveal your natural radiance. Then, apply a hydrating face mask and let it sit for 20 minutes. Finally, finish off with a highlighter on your cheekbones, brow bones, and Cupid's bow.

Hair Trends: 


Rock a festive updo: 

If you're looking for a holiday hairstyle that's both chic and practical, consider an updo. You can go for a classic bun or chignon or get more creative with a braided crown or topknot. Remember to add a pretty hair accessory like a sparkly headband or glittery hairpins. When wearing your hair up you definitely want to wear a statement earring to give you a little extra sparkle.

Go for big, voluminous waves: 

Nothing says "party" like big, bouncy waves. To get the look, start by applying a volumizing mousse to your wet hair. Then, use a large barrel curling iron to curl 1-inch sections of hair. Finish off with a texturizing spray for extra body and hold.

Opt for a sleek, straight style: 

If you're not into wearing your hair up, you can still look festive with a sleek, straight style. Simply use a flat iron to achieve a smooth finish, and then add a holiday-inspired hair accessory like a bejewelled clip or headband. The finishing touches always add a little extra at Christmas.

Shopping Advice: 

Give the gift of luxury: 

If you're looking for a luxurious beauty gift, consider something from La Mer or Dior Beauty. These brands offer high-end skincare and makeup products that any beauty lover would adore.

Sign up for beauty subscription boxes: 

Subscription Beauty Boxes are a great gift for someone who loves trying new products. Some of my favourites include Glossybox, Birchbox and Roccabox. 

Find the perfect stocking fillers: 

When it comes to stocking fillers, think small and practical. Beauty-related items like travel-sized skincare products, nail polish, or lip balm make great stocking stuffers. You can also consider beauty tools like tweezers, manicure sets, or hairbrushes.

I hope these tips help you get your beauty on this Christmas! Wishing you all a merry and beautiful holiday season.
