Work hard. Play hard.
Come 1st December we take this motto VERY seriously. And if you're like us, then you'll also be dreading the morning after that Christmas party. Think seriously dehydrated skin, desert mouth and approximately 5 minutes to get your s**t together. So here's our guide on how to nail your Christmas party, from your slinky mini dress to your post-party skincare routine. Don't worry - we're in this together (as we write nursing a hangover).
p.s. Scroll down for details of a HUGE giveaway with none other than Skinnydip London, the one-stop shop for party essentials.
Where To Shop:
For pure festive garment gold, start with Skinnydip, PrettyLittleThing & Missguided. You can count on these millennial faves for being bang on-trend, easy on the bank balance and their vibrant colours.
If you're aiming for Christmas without the cringe, then take a look at Kure Bazaar's Rock Star. A shade that is what is says on the tin. Cool AF this Kate Moss-esque blue looks great with a streak of silver down the centre of your accent nail.
Quality Streets & Moet. (Maybe this is why our hangovers are so bad).
Festive, stretchy for all the mince pies and down right edgy. We're going for this emerald green velvet mini dress from PrettyLittleThing. Pair with sparkly tights, gold hoops and sunglasses if you wanna be extra.
What brings an outfit together? Your best accessories. And what's more appropriate for a night out than a glow in the dark phone case by Stella McCartney? You literally won't be able to lose it. Slip your contactless card in the back and you're good to go.
Now let's be real, with us getting around 20 minutes of daylight a day, sub-zero temperatures and the roasting office heating, our skin can go a little crazy. So we're also giving away Prime Time, Mega Mist & Detox Dust to keep your skin in check. Meaning no more lacklustre complexions, dryness or redness and let's not even mention the effects of last night's 12 bellinis...Here's 3 simple steps to get your skin looking effortlessly glowy once more.
1. Ensure that makeup stays put by exfoliating with Prime Time for enviable skin smoothness. Our fruity facial scrub contains gentle jojoba beads to slough away dead skin cells at the surface, whilst fruit acids provide a deeper exfoliation, refining skin's texture.
2. Hydrate with Mega Mist. Enriched with the ingredient everyone's talking about, hyaluronic acid - this mist is MEGA for a reason. It plumps and intensely moisturises skin for a complexion that's on fleek.
3. Calm & cleanse with Detox Dust. The blend of activated charcoal and kaolin clay works to rid your skin of toxins, impurities & grime. Whilst oats provide gentle exfoliation and soothe sensitised skin.
You could WIN these 3 and more - details on how to enter our competition below!
