Last minute Christmas glamour

The festive season is well and truly upon us, and with the array of work do’s and Christmas bashes there has never been a better time to spruce up your beauty routine with a dash of glitz and glamour.

From soft smoky eyes to vintage style we’ve uncovered the best beauty trends to transform your look and get you ready for the holiday spirit.

Vintage glamour

This classic combination of flawless skin, dramatic winged liner and a bold red lip is the perfect go-to look for any festive party. Oozing elegance and sophistication, this timeless look also helps to show off your impressive cat-eye skills.

Inspired by beauty direct from the runways, the Dior 24 hour all-in-one couture palette from Debenhams is the perfect makeup kit to help you create a sophisticated, vibrant look for any evening event.

Soft smoky eye

Switch up the classic black smoky eye and opt for brown hues for a softer look, perfect to take you from day to night. Add some holiday sparkle with a bronze or copper shimmery shadow, and remember to line your inner upper and lower lash lines with waterproof eyeliner to finish this soft and sultry look.

The Urban Decay Naked 3 palette from House of Fraser offers a range of colours and finishes from smooth mattes to glimmering metallic - from the palest pink to the warmest brown, this palette is perfect for creating a range of soft smoky eyes.

Bold glitter

Christmas is the perfect excuse to go bold or go home, and why not opt for full festive glamour with a glitter lip? Easy to use glitter lip kits are available from both Superdrug and Boots for this season’s must-have look, leaving your pout sparkling all night long.

Neutral glamour

Don’t want to go bold? Keep your makeup low-key to balance your sparkly festive dress, and you can still bump up the glamour with a glowing natural look. Stick to the same nudes for your cheeks, eyes and lips for a look that will enhance your natural beauty.  

The Body Shop’s Down to Earth eye shadow quads are the perfect range of neutral shades to highlight the natural beauty of all skin tones and eye colours, combined with their best-selling Honey Bronze bronzing powder for a luminous golden glow, year-round.

Telford Shopping Centre offers a huge choice of stores for makeup and beauty products, including Debenhams, House of Fraser, The Body Shop, Boots, Superdrug and Bodycare.
