When the parties reach peak pandemonium, it’s good to have a few foolproof beauty favourites up your sleeve. Make Boots your destination for all your beauty needs this Christmas.


T’is the season of gifting, gorging, glitter and glamour, when pantomimes, parties and prosecco fill the diary up faster than you can say “jingle bells”. For the next few weeks, jeans, T-shirts and no-make-up make-up are cancelled until January 1. We’ll only be taking a break from red lipstick to tuck into a turkey and cranberry sandwich and if your highlighter isn’t twinkling like the lights on your tree, you’re doing it wrong. As the festivities jam up your planner with carol concerts, nativity plays, last-minute decisions for mulled wines in the pub and the work Christmas party, we have prepared a smorgasbord of beauty to guide you through your Yuletide felicitations. Whether you’re planning on staying in and guzzling gingerbread hot chocolate with the girls, dancing on the table or just lounging at home with a heaped cheeseboard, Boots has everything you need to sparkle this Christmas. And when the sparkle has been partied out of you, let your make-up do the hard work.

No7 Lash Extender Mascara, €18.50

No flaking, no smudging and it won’t travel down your face – No7’s Lash Extender Mascara, €18.50, is fibre-free, giving volume and length with one secret weapon. Volumising spheres layer upon each other, building the lashes to a length that will last through the night as long as you do.

Sleek Makeup Cream Contour Kit, €13.99

Create natural shadows to sculpt, enhance, highlight and define the face with the Sleek Makeup Cream Contour Kit, €13.99, with shades to suit all skin tones. Sweep lightly around the jaw, forehead and cheekbones to give the illusion of sculpted features.

Sleek Makeup Highlighting Palette in Cleopatra’s Kiss, €14.49

Sleek Makeup Highlighting Palette in Cleopatra’s Kiss, €14.49, has two velvety baked powders and two rich creamy shimmers to add glimmering shine to your beauty look over Christmas. Sweep it down your nose, onto the cheekbones, across your collarbones and over the forehead to add a gilded glisten of highlight to every look.

No7’s Gel Finish Nail Colour in Pillarbox, €10

Streak-free, complete coverage in just one stroke; No7’s Gel Finish Nail Colour in Pillarbox, €10, is truly a Christmas miracle. With a patented technology that makes polish tough to prevent chipping and make it easy to apply, a last- minute nail paint has never been easier.

CYO’s The Radiant One Bronzing & Illuminating Compact, €6.50

CYO cosmetics are mega multitaskers, designed to help you create your own (CYO – get it) experimental looks. CYO’s The Radiant One Bronzing & Illuminating Compact, €6.50, is a bronzer, blush, highlighter hybrid for an all-in-one dewy glow to brighten dull skin.

Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner Pen, €9

Don’t let winged eyeliner make you late to the party. Soap & Glory’s vegan Supercat Liquid Eyeliner Pen, €9, is completely foolproof, thanks to a fine tip that will only go as thick as you let it. No more eyeliner tantrums.

No7 Matte Liquid Lips, €11.75

No7 has cracked the diffifficult task of making matte mean moisturising with the long-wearing No7 Matte Liquid Lips, €11.75. Let the shade Fearless get you through the season – it’s the exact shade of Santa’s suit we’ve spent a lifetime trying to find.
