Christmas Chic: Looking Festively Fab At Your Christmas Party

December is such an exciting month. The first snow of the year, the countdown to Christmas, social gatherings and parties- it’s the perfect time to catch up with loved ones. And as the saying goes- eat, drink and be merry. But with so many events on your social calendar and the fact that you might be seeing people for the first time in a while it can be a little stressful if you’re not happy about your appearance. If you want to get out of your style rut, make a good impression and get yourself Christmas party ready, here are a few ideas for how to go about it!

Go To The Hairdresser

Our hair is such an important part of our identity, and it can go a long way in the way we feel about ourselves too. It only takes one bad hair day to realise how stressful it can be when our hair is refusing to cooperate! That gorgeous, swishy feeling you get when you come out of the hairdresser probably goes hand in hand with feeling great, so treat yourself to a new ‘do. You could go for a change of colour, or just a few highlights. At the very least, a trim and a deep conditioning treatment will have your hair looking and feeling much healthier. Before your Christmas party you could book in at the salon and have them to style it for you for an ultra glamorous look, now is the perfect opportunity to make the effort!

Experiment With Makeup
One of the most effective ways to glam up, transform yourself or just bring out your natural beauty is learn to use makeup. A foundation and concealer will even out your complexion, hiding redness, eye bags, acne and dark spots. A bronzer will help to warm up the skin and add some definition to the face. There are lots of different eyeshadow looks you can try that will make your eyes stand out, check out Youtube for tutorials. On the lips, how about a bright red since it’s Christmas! You don’t have to run out and buy tonnes of expensive makeup, there are plenty of great brands and products on the high street that perform amazingly but don't cost much. Have a look on blogs for swatches and examples, that way you can see exactly how something looks before spending money on it. False lashes are a great way to glam up a look and make your eyes look completely stunning. They can be tricky to apply, but you can by packs of ten from places like ebay and practice so you’re getting it right on the night.

Buy a Killer Outfit
An outfit that you feel fantastic in is a surefire way to boost your confidence. There are loads of great party dresses on the highstreet, but you don’t have to just limit your search to formal wear. If you check our brands such as Anthony's Ladies Apparel you’ll see that even some of the summer dresses on offer are suitable. Worn with a smart blazer and the right accessories they can easily be dressed up for an evening occasion. Work out what your body shape is and choose a style that will flatter your figure and let you feel gorgeous and confident during the evening. If you’re able to comfortably wear heels, these will elongate your legs and also glam up your outfit.

Improve Your Pearly Whites
Finally a stunning smile will be the perfect accessory for any outfit. If you’ve been thinking of having your teeth whitened for a while why not have it done now- an early Christmas gift to yourself? You will feel great and get to flash your smile at the social events over the month. Laser teeth whitening can lift your teeth up to eight shades so makes a dramatic difference, and unlike whitening trays it can all be done in one session lasting less than an hour. If you don’t want to have something this dramatic done, you could test out some over the counter teeth whitening products. Another tip is to choose a red lipstick with a cool undertone, this can help to make your teeth look whiter! Perfect for flashing a smile on all of your pictures.

Look after yourself, have a bit of a pamper session and see a professional if necessary. You’ll feel great now and be Christmas party ready, and will be a good start going into the new year too.
