Start Now if You Want to Look Fab This Christmas!

We all want to look positively sparkly during the Christmas period. December is probably the month we have the most to do; work parties, gatherings with family and friends, and sometimes even impromptu nights out. This means you should start as early as possible if you want to look amazing for them at a moment’s notice. Here are some things I like to do to get prepared:

Your Beauty Routine

You probably already have a beauty routine, but you need to make sure that you’re keeping it consistent ready for Christmas. Here are some of the things you can do in preparation for it:

  • Give yourself a weekly home facial complete with a face mask.
  • Exfoliate your body and face a couple of times per week.
  • Moisturise as often as possible, especially after a bath or shower. The winter cold can really dry out your skin!
  • Cleanse, tone, and moisturize twice per day. Use products with an SPF to protect my skin from the harmful environment too!
  • Strengthen your nails with hand cream and cuticle oil. Try to keep them filed to a nice length too, ready for polish before your parties!
  • Book an appointment at the salon if you want to look extra special. I can never do my eyebrows right myself, so sometimes I book in for a wax and tint. Eyelash tints are great too, as they define your eyes with no need for eyeliner or mascara!


I try to get my hair done at some point in December so I know that it’ll look fab whatever I decide to do to it. My hairdresser freshens up my color (for an occasion as special as this one, I don’t do it myself), and I have a nice amount cut off to make it look healthy and thick. I try not to wash it too often, as this can make it greasy. I do use hair treatments every so often though to keep it in great condition. Treatments are a must, especially if you plan on using heated appliances over the festive period like me!


I never like to go overboard with makeup, but it’s nice to try something new at this time of year. For example, a simple glitter eyeliner could really spice up your look. Practice first to make sure you like it before you attend those all important events.


I like to know what I’m wearing well in advance. I note down all of my parties in my calendar, what sort of thing I’m planning on wearing, and then I’ll hunt down similar fashion online or in my favorite stores. I do like to get in the festive spirit, so I think you can’t go wrong with something red, sequinned, or both!

It’s never too early to start preparing for Christmas. The earlier you start, the less stressed you’ll be on the day. If you have any tips, leave a comment to let me know. Thanks for reading!
