November marks the official start of the party season - that means, with Halloween finally out of the way, we can swap all things spooky for sparkle and enjoying the excuse to ditch minimalism for just a few months in favour of all-out glamour. But with our diaries filling up, that also means the battle to look our best all whilst enduring night after late night - which is why we're bringing out the beauty big guns especially. Luckily for you, we at Grazia are seasoned pros when it comes to partying on through with polish, so we're here to share all the formulas, technologies and feel-good creations that we use get our glam on, make it through til morning - and fake eight hours beauty sleep when we're done.
In preparation for a par-tay, the single best thing you can do for your face IMHO is a solid skincare routine. Think about what you want to achieve - getting your glow on, knuckling down on your shine with a primer or, pre-empting those late nights and missed curfews with hydrating rescue masks and undereye serums. Then comes playtime - your makeup. Soiree season is the best time to really ramp up your usual mascara and a bit of concealer routine. With so many opportunities to experiment with our beauty right now, Boots is like Santa's grotto filled with all the essentials you need to ramp up your beauty endeavours for the season.
