The festive season is getting underway, time to get party ready! Great beauty is all in the preparation, use the right products and you can get salon quality tan, nails and make-up in the comfort of your own home.
Starting with tan, a great self-tan will give you days of golden skin. With 33% off bBold Tan (selected lines) it’s a good time to stock up for the months ahead. The Dark Tan Lotion is a top buy, the lotion can be added to body lotion for a more gradual tan shade, or used alone for a deeper tan (RRP €18.99, now €12.72). Used twice weekly your tan will stay even and looking great right through the whole party season.
Don’t let your nails let you down, set aside an hour or so once/twice a week to give them a proper manicure. With 25% off Sally Hansen Miracle Gel (selected stores) there are lots of colour options to choose from, strong berries and purple are always popular in Winter, RRP €9.99, now €7.49. To protect this great polish and give it a gel-like finish, pick up New Miracle Gel Top Coat. It’s great for giving colour high shine, but it also forms a deep cushion on the nail, a clear layer the equivalent of a salon style gel nail, RRP €9.99, now €7.49 . The bonus is though that both the colour and top coat can be removed with regular polish remover like any regular varnish.
Lashes go large in the party season, but if false strip lashes or regular mascara cause irritation look no further than the Physicians Formula range for organic mascaras. A blend of natural waxes and dyes these give super full lashes and deep colour without any redness or itching. Perfect for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, the entire make-up range is great if sensitivity is an issue. Currently 3 for 2 at selected stores. Go online at www.lloydspharmacy.ie to see the collection.
The final touch for any party look has got to be great lip colour, but why have just one shade when there are so many parties ahead? Take a look at Clarins 4-piece Pretty Lips Collection which contains 2 great tinted lip protecting balms, a very wearable rose wood shade and matching gloss, all housed in a gorgeous golden cosmetic bag, €24.50.
