Christmas Party Beauty Packages

28th Nov 2016

1920's Style Make-Up and Finger Waves

Women in the Roaring 20's never made that "lip or eyes" choice and neither should you! Go for a soft smokey eye and a deep red lip. Don't be afraid to go a little stronger than you normally would, bridal beauty might be all about a natural look but you'll need strong features to stand out against a busy background. Finger waves are another signature 1920's look, traditionally set with a series of pins and lots of steam but you can just get yourself some hot tools instead.


Get the girls together with the Pamper Package at Dylan Bradshaw. Groups of up to three can book in to the private room, relax in super-soft robes and enjoy a blow-dry, full make-up, file and polish, and a glass of bubbly for €100 per person. 56 South William Street, Dublin 2, 01 671 9353

Sneak away for two hours of relaxation time before the big night, with the Get Radiant Package at The Buff Day Spa for €99. A mineral salt scrub will leave skin gleaming before it’s time to get nail happy with a Shellac manicure. The finishing touch of a Fuschia mineral make-up application offers the much-needed glamour that the festive season demands.?52 South King Street, Dublin 2, 01 677 4624

There is no need to have party- prep dread. Feel fantastic with the Christmas Party Package at Carter Beauty Blackrock, €50, with a light spray tan to brighten dull skin and make-up with lashes to inject some fun into your look. 40 Main Street, Blackrock, Co Dublin, 01 210 3624

Sit back and be spoiled at The Beauty Rooms at Keadeen Hotel with the Occasions Package, €50.

Curragh Road, Ballymany, Newbridge, Co Kildare,?045 431666

In need of a quick hair and make-up lift? Callan & Co will inject new life into limp locks with a powerful blow-dry and an expertly applied make-up application for €90. Two simple steps to take on the night. 1 St Mary’s Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4, 01 668 0060
