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.
