In the run-up to Christmas, social calendars are fit to burst. As these engagements often go late into the night, it's ideal for the ladies to have beauty products near at hand. Here are 3 great products that will last all night long (and fit in your bag)
1. Bring that Sparkle to Your Eyes
To keep eye shadow looking fresher and brighter for longer, I use Clarins’ Instant Eye perfecting base (£22, clarins.co.uk), a new product from the prestigious company. When applied to the eyelid, it serves as both a concealer and a primer by covering up any visible veins and providing a smooth, evenly toned base.
2. Wow Away Those Roots
For those of us who colour our hair, showing roots is a frequent and expensive problem. However, there is a brilliant quick-fix solution: hair make-up. Color Wow (£28.50, uk.spacenk.com) is a life-changing product. Acting almost like a foundation, use the brush provided to paint colour onto grey roots. Color Wow comes in several shades and is washed out easily with shampoo.
3. Shine On
Add a touch of shine to your cheekbones with Benefit’s High Beam (£19.50, benefit.com) and Watt’s Up (£24.50, benefit.com) highlighters. High Beam works well under cream or liquid-based foundations. Apply it to your cheek and brow bones before smoothing over your foundation for a little extra sheen. Watt’s Up fits perfectly into your purse for a top up on the go. I love the golden tone of this highlighter and the stick applicator makes it very easy to use.
