    So it’s that time of year again! Christmas is coming, which means the festive parties are already in full swing...

    Christmas parties often go straight from the office, leaving little time to get glam and gorgeous. So we thought we would ask our friends at Benefit for some tips and tricks to transform us in a flash - creating the perfect party look, minimal yet festive!

    Brows are bigger than ever at the moment and make such a difference to your face, so it is essential to make sure that they are on top form. Our Gimme Brow is the perfect product to do just the job! Simply apply a coat to plump up the brow. 

    Our Assistant Makeup and Trend Artist Lauren suggests if you want a strong brow to use a hard angle brush to apply gimme brow to the brow borders for extra definition...

    Ok brows done and you only have 15 more minutes before you head to the bar, what’s next… the eyes! 

    This calls for an simple eyeliner flick and when you’re in a rush our easy to use they’re Real! Gel Eyeliner is perfect. 

    Now for lashing and lashing of They’re Real! Mascara to emphasise your lashes.

    Ok, quick time check, breathe you have 7 minutes to go – plenty of time to add a little bit of shimmer.

    Our Watt’s Up! Highlighter is just the ticket! Apply the gold shimmery highlighter along your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and your cupids bow then blend. 

    This will transform your complexion from day to night.

    Finally, it’s Christmas so it's only fair to go for a festive red lip.  

    Firstly you will need a Benefit classic – Benetint, a rose coloured lip and cheek stain. Apply several coats of benetint to your lips and once you are happy with the colour, apply our red tinted lip balm Benebalm to keep lips smooth and hydrated.

    Should a kiss under the mistletoe be on the cards, you'll be more than ready!
