We’re one day away from December. This is not a drill. Party season is pretty much here; those awkward office parties where someone snogs Tim from accounts, the New Year’s Eve parties that are exactly the same every year but you go anyway in the hopes that this year will be different and you won’t end up in the kebab shop where all the staff know your name and you only seem to be wearing one shoe.
Wherever you’re going this festive season, my five must-have party products will get you looking and feeling your best. Even if it does rain and Sandra from HR throws up in the new expensive bag you got for Christmas.
OSMO Chromaplex Intro Kit* – This amazing two part kit from Osmo is deigned to be added to your normal bottle of hair colour or bleach. The Bond Builder adds moisture and strengthening properties leaving your hair less damaged and looking more shiny with a more vibrant colour. The Bond Sealer seals the hair shaft for sleeky, smooth hair. It’s absolutely perfect for anyone that does their own colour at home but wants it looking incredible for the party season. (Available from Amazon £26.85)
L’Or des Pharaons Gold Face Mist Spray* – This sexy little face and body mist is great for spraying on your face before applying your moisturiser and party makeup. It contains nanoclusters of pure gold, zinc and platinum! It dries really fast and helps rejuvenate skin cells leaving you feeling like a million dollars! (Available from The Health Range £40)
Kiss False Eyelashes* – These are an absolute must. Apparently. I’ve never worn them before now. Shocking, I know! But now, I absolutely love them. These gorgeous lashes are from Kiss and include a pair of tweezers and some aloe vera glue. They’re so easy to apply and look realistic! I’m wearing the Chic set in the photo below. (Available from Boots from £4.99).
Kiss Wing it Eyeliner* – If, like me, you have trouble getting your wings right every time, or any time for that matter, then fear not, this product is your winged saviour! It comes with a little pot of gel eyeliner, an eyeliner brush and a little disc with different eyeliner stencils cut out. There are little markers around the edges so you can line up both sides perfectly every single time. Just pick the wing you’re in the mood for, hold the disc by your eye and paint the gel liner on. Simple. Well, okay fine, it takes a bit of practice, but I certainly find this easier than trying to go freehand! (Available from Asda £7.99)
imPRESS Nails* – It’s all well and good getting your hair perfect and having the fleekiest eyes out there, but don’t forget about your nails! I always find that if I paint my nails on the day, I smudge them and if I paint them the day before, I chip them. So the best solution is falsies. These ones hard-wearing and pretty long-lasting. They’re are super easy to use, you peel off the backing and press on to your real nails. Yup, it’s that simple. (Available from Amazon from £5.69)
Kiss Nails* – I also absolutely love the Kiss nails. They’re super hard-wearing and last for days. You apply a small amount of glue to your nail and to the acrylic and press on to your real nail. The glue dries in seconds leaving you to get on with the rest of your preparations 🙂 (Available from Superdrug £5.32)
So now I’m all ready to party. I just have to find somewhere to go!
