In the press: Ask the beauty buyer: Get party ready

 

This Christmas make sure that you shine like the star you are at every festive get together with the ultimate beauty kit that will make you look and feel party ready, says Jarrold beauty buyer Deborah Pritchard in December's EDP Norfolk magazine.

The party season is upon us once again and whether you are heading to that Christmas gathering straight after work or you have a few hours to spend getting ready, this year’s party look is going to be your best yet. This is because among the plethora of beauty gift ideas and special seasonal makeup kits there are the hero products that will help you achieve that party glow regardless of how much time you have. And who doesn’t want to look and feel glamorous throughout the season of catching up with friends and colleagues - and of course celebrating with family.

Here is my ultimate party kit – a Christmas survival guide if you will – to help you look and feel party ready this Christmas.

Your party prep list

Think ahead and plan in some time for some pampering.

 

For your face: Firm and lift your skin by treating yourself to the GlamGlow GravityMud mask, £42.

The mask goes on white and then changes colour to a metallic chrome that peels off to leave skin

feeling tighter and more lifted.

Your eyes: It’s all about the metallic eye this party season and the launch of The Eyes of Tom Ford (available on counter from December 1). Finish your eyes with one of my favourite mascaras Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes, £23, the perfect five in one mascara as it gives you curl, separation, length, volume and drama.
