It's the festive season my darlings which can only mean one thing ... all things glam of course.
This is the one time in the year where it is completely acceptable to go outrageously bold with your beauty look and not one person will give you anything other than a compliment.
So why do it yourself? If you are going to spend all this money on your favourite beauty products it's time that you learn how to use them. Whether you are in a rush or just need a dash of gorgeousness, with minimal effort, here are five different make up specialists that will give you the Christmas look of your dreams.
When I think of Chanel I instantly think of a bold red lip as worn by many of their campaign faces. Chanel focuses on a perfect combination of sultry and intense looks yet their application remains understated and flawless. Focused greatly on skin, this brand provides great coverage with little product. Chanel would be my go to for high society and everything just that little bit more formal knowing it would provide me with ever inch of glamour and sophistication I need.
If you would like your make up done at MAC you have to act fast, there is not one time where I have been and not to had have booked my appointment weeks before. MAC focus on intensity and go places that you are perhaps to afraid to do so. We are talking strong eyebrows, darkened lids and of course classic colour pop lips. Their products are at the upper end of high street yet remain long lasting and affordable.
From start to finish Tom Ford will make you feel like a goddess and why is that? These products are in their own category of luxury. From divine packaging to sacred scent, Tom Ford make up specialists contain every inch of knowledge needed to promote each and every product. If you choose a Tom Ford beauty counter you know you are going to walk out with a bold, brilliant beauty look that will last all night long.
If you are lucky enough to have a Charlotte Tilbury counter in your home city I would suggest you take a trip because this is one make over you will not want to miss out on. Charlottes iconic ten looks, which I have discussed many times before, are perfect for any and every occasion. Whether you are brave and daring as a Vintage Vamp or imagine yourself living it up in a casino on the French Riviera as a sophisticate, Charlotte will ensure you fall nothing short of drop dead gorgeous.
Anyone who knows of Urban Decay knows that they are strong believers in heavy coverage and pigmented products. If you want to show everyone you are the life and soul of the party don't just start with your outfit but also your beauty look. We are talking lengthly lashes, smokey seduction and a vibrant lip. This brand is also perfect for the festive season as it's glitter eyes shadows, courtesy of new Moondust palette, are something you just cannot miss out on.
Dior, like Chanel, is classic. Whilst Dior is a little more understated it is the epitome of sophistication, creating flawless skin and make up adapted to any occasion and skin type. It's holiday collection, whilst costly, is a well worth investment, but provides all the more reason as to why you should visit one of their counters. If you want striking here is your guide to achieving it.

Whether your fun and feisty with a little Charlotte touch or sleek and sexy with an Urban Decay smokey eye, these brands will never fail to impress.
