Mistletoe and Wine

It’s the office party. You’ve had a barrel of wine and it’s only 8.30pm. The vodka luge was a bad idea and you wake up face down on a creepy colleagues floor with crumbs and cat hair stuck to your face. Hey…we’ve all been there. Actually these are all separate events that have happened to me but for the sake of the story I rolled them into one. What’s my point? Well I don’t really have one. All I’m saying is, it’s easy to be the hot mess at any Christmas party but you may as well look good while you’re at it. Yes your makeup will undoubtedly slide off your face at around 4am whilst you eat a kebab, but hopefully that will be in the privacy of your own home. Then you can just detag the bad photos on facebook the next day and keep the goodies. Job done.

On a serious note ๐Ÿ˜‰ we have a tutorial coming up really soon which shows you how to make the most of your eyes this Christmas. The basics of smokey eye with sprinkle of Zhoosh ie. Glitter. Glitter is totally acceptable at this time of year without people thinking you’ve either come dressed as a fairy or your stuck in the 90’s. It’s a time where you can go a little wild and show off so watch this space – it will no doubt get you in the party mood.

In the spirit of Britney Spears… Have fun y’all.

Time for some Christmas shopping?

Then head to Liberty of London, it’s my favourite department store. I really love their beauty section as it’s less manic than Selfridges and a much more enjoyable shopping experience. Their fragrance section is beautiful and you’ll find lots of perfumes that you wouldn’t usually see on the high street. My current favourite is by Escentric Molecules ‘Escentric 01’, a couple of my friends have been wearing it for years and I thought it was about time I tried it out.

Buying fragrance for someone can be tricky but you’ll definitely find something in Liberty as it’s aย relatively small department where you’re free to browse and spray to your hearts content! I’ve always found the staff very helpful too (which always helps). Happy shopping!
