Getting Christmas Party Ready


With Christmas parties and events just around the corner, I wanted to help you get your christmas party wardrobe sorted and compile a list of everything you may need -  outfits, beauty looks and accessories! Shopping at this time of year can be stressful and overwhelming, especially with everyone getting last minute presents and looking for christmas outfits, it's much easier to shop online. I've broken down this guide into each category to help split up what exactly you're looking for.

The Outfit: This is the time of year to go all out. Christmas parties are always a lot of fun, and it's the one time that you should just go with whatever you want your outfit and make up to be without thinking it's too much. If you're celebrating with work or colleagues you'll want something a little understated and classic so I've listed some of my favourite dresses below, along with several other options.

THE CLASSIC LBD:




THE SEQUIN PARTY DRESS:




THE SOPHISTICATED DRESS:





THE SHOW STOPPER:





The Make Up: I say that this festive season you should wear a bold lip. It makes your make up stand out from the rest. Opt for either a minimal or smokey eye, whichever your preference, and pair it with a bold lip to have it all come together. My favourite bold lip picks are Nars Charlotte Lipstick, Charlotte Tilbury's Red Carpet Red and Mac Ruby Woo. Scroll through my beauty picks:

THE FLAWLESS BASE:



Tip: I recommend Nars Sheer glow if you want good coverage and long lasting wear. For bronzer, I prefer the Mac Matte Bronzer which is perfect for contouring and warming up the face.

THE SMOKEY EYE:



Tip: When working with a smokey eye, do your eye make up first and then your base. I recommend blending everything out with a warm toned bronzer to get rid of any harsh shades.

RED / BERRY LIPS:






Tip: Blot your lipstick after application so that you ensure it lasts all day on the lips.



The Accessories: Shoes and bags. I always think with so much going on with the outfit and the make up, I would keep the shoes and bag simple. Opt for simple black or nude heels, or if you're outfit is simple go for something a little bold. You may not have the chance to change your heels at work so I've listed some work appropriate ones that will take you into the evening too!


THE KILLER HEELS:



THE DRESSED UP BOOTS:




Do you feel ready for your Christmas party yet? Being a full time blogger means no Christmas work do, but that's not stopping me from investing in some dresses that will be useful all year round.
