Quick Fixes for Christmas Beauty


I don’t know about you but at this time of year I’m always invited to parties, there’s Christmas parties for work and New Years Eve parties and then there’s Christmas nights out with your mates that you haven’t seen since summer. Well, if you’re anything like me you’ll leave any beauty preparations until the last minute (and even then you’ll spend most of your getting ready time playing The Sims) so you need to have some quick tricks up your sleeve. Here are my 5 picks for getting glam in a hurry:


1. Pearl Drops Beauty Sleep Overnight Serum - £3.49*

This little product is fab for brightening up your teeth in a hurry, you apply it at night time before you sleep and it works away to make your teeth and gums look more radiant and healthy. You can use this every night and after about a week I started to notice a difference! Perfect for any New Years Eve parties!

2. REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask - £30*

Ahh, the old faithful. The REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask is possibly my most favourite mask of all time. It smells amazing, and more importantly it leaves skin looking glowy and healthy. Just pop it on whilst your getting ready to go out and your skin will look amazing for the whole night – the glowiness often shows through foundation too!

3. Carmex - £2.69*

Perfect for moisturising your lips and making them ready for any kisses under the mistletoe, Carmex is a really intensive lip balm that offers long-lasting relief too chapped lips. It’s also fab under lipstick and stops any horrible dry bits from appearing and ruining your make-up.

4. Barry M Glitter Polish - £2.99

For pretty nails in a hurry glitter nail polish is your friend, you can pop it on on top of other colours and it doesn’t chip easily! You can’t get more festive than a bit of glitter either can you?

5. L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil - £9.99*

And for party hair in a flash you’ll need some of this hair oil by L’Oreal, it’s amazing at making hair silky, smooth and manageable. You can pop some on before you wash your hair as a treatment or just use it after washing before blow drying. This stuff will truly make your hair look (and smell) amazing!

Are you off to any Christmas/New Years parties?

What are your favourite quick fixes?

  7. The Pearl Drops sounds like a great product to use before an important event. I am going to pick some up. I always love BarryM nail polishes - they are a bargain and look great.
