Beauty tips for the festive season

It’s just a few weeks to Christmas but already you should be planning your party look – buy a fab new dress and think…. makeup and hair!

This season’s key makeup look

Forget the natural look, ditch boring beige and brown and say no to those nude shades. The party season is all about daring to have fun with colour and flair.


There are no hard and fast rules about colours to use so long as they are bright. Throw the rule book out of the window! For eyes, try blending purples and greys together and using a dark liquid liner on top of your lids. The party season is for creating a dramatic and eye-catching effect. Lips should be striking deep red or burgundy (for dark skins) or cooler reds (for pale skins).


The secret to wearing bright colours is in the blending. You don’t want to look like you’ve stepped out of a bad 1980s movie. Add colour gradually to build intensity and remember to blend using a soft brush between applications.

Then these are my hair care tips……

For medium to long hair, the GHD Styler at £99.00 is a MUST HAVE.

Girls – cancel your hair appointment now, trust me you don’t need to visit your stylist to achieve the look…. GHDs are perfect for all year round and a life saver for the party season. Great for those who crave variety.

Straighten, curl, flick, twist, style every which way you want with this supremely versatile styler.

If you’re wearing that little black number and worried about dandruff, then don’t be, use:

Phyto Anti Dandruff (from £12.50) Don’t let dandruff control your life. This Phyto anti-dandruff range rapidly eliminates dandruff and actively prevents it from reappearing.

All hair products mentioned are available from the Hair Studio on 01664 433052.
