Blogmas Day 2 // Office To Party Beauty Picks

Office to party makeup

The Christmas Party season is officially open, which means it’s time for a quick and easy makeup transformation. Most probably in the ladies bathroom. Classy times, I know. It’s not the most desirable of places but sometimes it has to be done when your dressing table is not an option. I’ve got you covered though, so fear not! All you need is a handful of easy-to-slap on products, which will get your everyday office makeup from bare-there to oh-so-glamorous and party-ready. The list of products goes as follows…

Even though I always like to go for budge-proof base makeup when I’m going out, things may still need a bit of freshening up. I like to start by topping my foundation with my trusty Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation (here / review). It adds a bit of coverage, as well as injects some moisture back into my skin. It goes on beautifully and doesn’t disturb the makeup underneath – fab. If you don’t want to go down the foundation route though, you can always pop some concealer under your eyes and on any spots that may have be peeking through. The Soap & Glory Kick Ass (here / review) is perfect as it comes in two shades – one for the eye area and one for blemishes. Then simply dust some powder all over the face to take away any shine and to help set everything in place. Chanel Les Beiges (here / review) is always my powder of choice as it blends like a dream and adds a touch of coverage without looking caked on.

By the end of the working day chances are your blush and bronzer are nowhere to be seen, so reapplication is in order. Enhance those cheekbones and warm thing up with a touch of bronzing powder and you’re good to go. My favorite as of late is the Bare Minerals Ready Bronzer (here), which ticks all the boxes with its buttery, easy-to-blend formula. For some added color simply dust some blush on the apples of your cheeks. I love Benefit Rockateur (here / review) for nights out as it highlights the area beautifully and makes mu skin look dewy and fresh.

For eyes, you can’t go wrong with a speedy smokey eye and the Kiko Eyeshadow Stick in #6 Golden Brown (here / review) is the bomb. The bronze-y shade is absolutely gorgeous and the metallic finish is the perfect touch for any party. It’s completely foolproof to use and it stays on until you say so. If you want to add more drama into your makeup then you can’t go wrong with eyeliner. It’s a bit tricky to apply with mascara on, but it makes the biggest difference, so in my makeup bag it goes. I love the Loreal Super Liner Perfect Slim (here) as it’s offers great precision and the tip is perfect for creating both thin and thick wing.

When I think Christmas Party I instantly think red lip. It’s the ultimate seasonal must-have, isn’t it! Red lipstick tends to be a bit hard to apply on the go though and that’s why I opted for the Maybelline Color Drama Velvet Lip Pencil in Light It Up (review). The bright classic red share is to die for and compliments all skin tones beautifully. It is super easy and faff-free to apply and the best part is that it stays in tact for hours, regardless of the number of cocktails I’m having. Just make sure you steer clear of the mistletoe because this baby transfers. A lot.

No one has time for complex hairstyles post-work, so it’s all about getting texture. Just spritz some texturizing spray through your locks, give them a scrunch and voila – hello voluminous party-ready hair! I can’t live without my Charles Worthington Texturizing Spray (here / review), which never fail to deliver all the right amounts of oomph to my strands. Last but not least, spritz on your favorite perfume and you’re done! Mine pick is Chloe Eau de Parfum (here) – it’s just divine! Go give it  asniff ladies and add it to your Christmas wishlist!

Have you tried any of these products? Which is your number one Christmas party essential?

Lots of love,


  1. The KIKO eyeshadow stick is absolutely stunning and I think it would great for a party, I still haven't gotten any of their shadows. The Chloe perfume smells incredible but right now I'm loving more vanilla scents.
