Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…. well, except me! Dresses and Skirts are flying through the air, while I try to decide how on earth to do my hair.
If you still need to inject some last minute Christmas Spirit into your look, you’re in the right place! Scroll on for my five quick tips….
1. Dressed Down Sequins
Just because you’ll be spending the day with great Aunt Nora and co, doesn’t mean that you can’t get glammed up! Inject a little holiday spirit into your look with a seasonal splash of sequins.
The key to this one is to keep it casual. After all, your family living room is not hosting the Emmy Awards on December the 25th! Choose one statement sequin piece and dress is down with denim, jersey and knit fabrics.

2. A Festive Berry Lip
It’s 100% proven that a coloured lip will instantly make you look more polished. With frost-bitten berry tones and red-wine hues, a bold berry lip will instantly make you look the part.

3. Red Glitzy Nails
Nothing says ‘Merry Christmas’ like some festive-appropriate nails! If you have five minutes to make yourself look just that extra bit festive, why not do a DIY Christmas mani?
Here’s one I prepared earlier! To create these glitzy nails, I started by applying two coats of Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish in ‘Double Decker Red.’ I then added a coat of Barry M Aquarium polish in Atlantis.
4. Statement Earrings
A glitzy, drop earring is a win no matter what you’re wearing.
5. Put A Bow On It!
Christmassy hairstyles don’t necessarily have to equate to Cindy Lou Who from ‘The Grinch’. Be the hottest thing under the tree by re-creating this bow hairstyle.
