Under pressure? Not quite “festive fit”? It’s okay, we’ve got your back with a hit list of satisfaction-guaranteed beauty treatments to get you set to sparkle by the time the clock strikes cocktail hour. MELANIE MORRIS opens her little black book of experts and tricks of the trade to get you sorted.

1.

Judy Wong, mobile @makeupbyjudibells

An extensive career, plenty of shoot experience, product knowledge up the wazoo, and a passion for sparkle makes Judy’s work a festive winner.

2

Laurence Keating, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Harvey Nichols, Dundrum Town Centre

A former MAC artist with a painterly style that’s understated and very beautiful. His make-up will last as long as you do.

3

John Bowes, Brown Sugar

Brown Sugar’s latest MUA recruit, John’s work spans the full spectrum from special effects to glowing faces.

4

Lyndsey Cavanagh, One Dame Lane, Dublin 2

Lyndsey will amplify your best you with stunning make-up you won’t ever want to remove. Lovely salon environment, where her handmade jewellery and beauty brands are also on sale.

5

Tara Donaghy, Preen, Dame Street, Dublin 2

A great reader of faces and occasions, Tara’s meticulous work looks just as good up close as it does from across a room, or (importantly!) on camera.
