8 products to perfect your festive face this season

In search of festive make-up inspiration? These 8 products from McCauley Health and Beauty Pharmacy make getting glammed up easy.


Party season is here and we are in full-on festive planning mode.

From presents to events, to learning how not to burn a turkey, there’s a lot to think about. At this moment, your Christmas glam is probably the least of your worries. Christmas outfits are one thing, but festive make-up is something else entirely. We talk at length here in IMAGE HQ about how difficult it is to find the right products for a night on the town make-up look.

Is a smokey eye still relevant? What foundation will last all night without making me look like I have just come from the gym? And, do I really need to use a primer?

Well, McCauley Health and Beauty Pharmacy is here to answer those questions. It hosts an array of beauty brands and products which make getting glam easy.

We have chosen some of the best products it has to offer for the ultimate Christmas make-up look that will keep you looking and feeling fabulous during the most wonderful time of the year.

Primer

Benefit Porefessional mini, €13

A silky lightweight that helps to minimise the appearance of pores and fine lines. This is a classic for a reason, so believe the hype.

Foundation

Clinique Beyond Perfect Make Up Linen, €34 at McCauleys

This is a wonder product, acting as a foundation and concealer all in one. It gives a natural yet perfect finish that will last all night. Set with powder if your skin is on the oily side.

Bronzer

Stila Stay All Day Body Contouring Bronzer, €37

This light-weight matte-satin powder comes in one shade which complements every skin tone. Use to accent your best features and give your face a gorgeous sun-kissed look.

Blush and highlight

 

Aimee Connolly Sculpted Full Face Edit Round Palette, €35

This palette by Aimee Connolly has everything you need to an extra dimension to your make-up look. Use either the sunset sheen powder blush if you prefer a matte finish on your cheeks or the pink cream tint for a dewy appearance. Then use the rose gold glow powder highlight to finish.
