Show-stopping beauty doesn’t have to come with a heart-stopping price tag. AISLING O?GRADY has your seasonal wish list of magic make-up, guaranteed to keep you looking gorgeous for the festivities to come.

December

1 Go dotty for this pretty perforated make-up bag, €7.99 at H&M. It’s the perfect size and shape for holding those party essentials in style.

2 One for the sparkle lovers, Topshop’s Glitter Liner in Mosaic, €10, gives a sharp stripe of glittering gold gorgeousness.

3 Rimmel’s Magnif?eyes Eye Contouring Palette in Grunge Glamour, €9.95, is both sultry and chic. With a mix of matte and shimmer shades ranging from smoky grey to popping purple, it’s perfect for night time manoeuvres.

4 With an even coverage and a light texture, Catrice’s HD Liquid Coverage Foundation, €7.90, is a winner. It glides on and stays put, for a lovely matte finish.

5 Barry M’s Coconut Infusion Nail Paint in Oasis and Paradise, €7.49 each, are two high- shine delights to fall in love with this season. A nice alternative to the traditional red.

6 Soft and oh-so-pretty, Essence’s Matt Matt Matt Lipstick in Perfect Match, €2.90, is the perfect daytime winter shade. Its lovely nude red tone will complement, without overwhelming.

7 For a 1980s-inspired glow, Sleek’s Solstice Highlighting Palette, €12.49, is perfection. With two high-shine powders, one cream formula and one velvety shimmer powder, it ticks every light-lustre list.

8 For standout lashes with a flirtatious curl, Wet n Wild’s Max Fanatic Cat Eye Mascara, €5.99, is boss. Its curved wand allows for that enviable flick on the outer lashes.

9 Smooth and blendable, PS’s Dark Pink Lip Liner Pencil, €1.50, provides a nice tonal addition to any pink or plum lippie, whilst keeping a beautiful bow-shape in check.
