Xmas party the right way

Work Xmas party on the horizon? There’s loads to plan, from pulling together that killer outfit to placing bets on who’s going to take “letting their hair down” to a whole new level (we’re looking at you, Stefan). While you’re busy practising your moves for the d-floor, we’ve compiled the ultimate list of (beauty) dos and don’ts so you nail your work party of the year in style.

DO leave a pack of your favourite makeup wipes beside your bed. Let’s be honest, you’ll probably get home late and you may not be in the mood for your nightly routine. This clever precautionary move will avoid you hitting the pillow with a full face of makeup on and your skin will thank you for it in the morning.

16 Brand Peach Soda Cleansing Tissue

DON’T sweat it (literally) when you’re cutting moves on the d-floor. People like dancing under a disco ball, not looking like one. A couple of spritzes of this baby will lock down your beauty look well into the wee hours.

Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

DON’T let those appetisers being passed around ruin your statement party lip. Preparation is key if you want a pout that will last the distance. Pop on some primer, swipe on your favourite shade of Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and long-lasting lips will no longer be a pipe dream.

MAC Prep + Prime Lip
Stila Stay All Liquid Lipstick

DON’T forget about your skin post-party. Just because the night has wrapped doesn’t mean your skin deserves to be neglected. Make sure to pop a mask on it the next day to revive and refresh. After all, you’ll be backing up again for NYE.

Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recover Masque

DO kick start your immunity with a daily supplement from BEAR. And you know what? Keep these guys, packed with powerful antioxidants, at the ready over the entire holiday period to keep you in optimal health.

BEAR Protect Vitamin A + Echinacea For Immunity

DO earn major team brownie points by shouting a round of egg and bacon rolls the next morning, and probably a coffee or three. Not all heroes wear capes.
