Fashion and Beauty Party Essentials!

Fashion and Beauty Party Essentials

I hope you are all enjoying the run up to Christmas, I have been so busy shopping and getting ready for the big day I can not wait to finally be able to sit back and relax. Of course its not all about cosy nights in by the fire eating enough chocolate to last a life time, it is also the party season of the year! I love a nice festive night out with friends, it is a nice way to let off some steam and catch up with everyone, and best of all its a great excuse to get dressed up to the nines!

I am not a huge fan of fake tanning over winter, I am always wrapped up warm in so many layers I find it tends to wear off so easily, so if I am braving bare legs for a party I always use the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. This is a massive life saver for me as it gives instant flawless legs which will last all night. It is water resistant and wont rub off on any bedding so you don't have to worry about jumping straight into bed, you can simply shower it off the next morning... together with last nights makeup. 

I always wear a matte lip for a night out as I don't have to worry about re-applying all night. My favourites are the Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks, as the are so comfortable to wear and pigmented I hardly have to top it up. 

Now am I the only person who has a day time and night time fragrance? My favourite night time fragrance it the YSL Manifesto Eau De Parfum. I love this for night time as it is slightly warmer and deeper than my fragrances for day and it also smells a little like chocolate to me too, and lasts for a really long time.

Accessories are key for a festive night out and I recently brought this clutch from Accessorize which is the perfect size to carry around. I love the rustic gold shimmery finish as it looks slightly different in different lights. 

Everyone is obsessing over ear cuffs at the moment and I purchased these stunning pair of silver cuffs from Topshop. They are so sparkly and a great statement piece for any outfit, I like to wear them just on their own with no other jewellery. The smaller gold ear cuff I brought from New Look, again it is really sparkly and goes really nicely with my other ear piercings. 

 Last but not least I love my midi rings I picked up these gold toned ones from New Look and they have little stars, moons and little gems on them which are perfect for a Christmas night out.

I hope you like my party essentials, I hope you are enjoying your Christmas parties so far!

  1. While I would love to try GC new matte lips, after the GC controversy, I am no longer a fan of theirs.
    I had the SH airbrushed legs but never once used it after two years of purchase, so I passed it on. :(

    1. Thanks hun, they were not that expensive either which is great x

  4. Really want the GC matte lipsticks! I've heard so much about them and would love to give them a go! x


    1. The main reason I really like them is because they are not drying at all and stay on forever x

  5. Such pretty picks, I've never even seen those liquid lipsticks before but the colours are beautiful.
