Now that December has officially arrived, we can start getting a little more serious about the holiday season and prepping for the parties that come with it. Often times, the first celebration of the season is your office Christmas party. And while getting together with your colleagues in a less formal setting can be a great time, it can be difficult to choose the perfect look without being too overbearing. The key is to look sophisticated and glam without being too bold.

OFFICE PARTY GLAM: HOW TO ACHIEVE THE PERFECT HOLIDAY LOOK
For a classic look that will enhance your natural beauty without going too over-the-top, read our 4 steps to perfect your holiday office party.
Step 1: The complexion
This season, the base makeup look of choice is light foundation with a luminous finish. For pretty, natural skin that radiates in the light, start off by applying a lightweight BB cream onto your entire face. Next, apply a liquid illuminator onto the high points of your cheekbones, and the bridge of nose. For a radiant and natural flush, apply pink blush onto the apples of your cheeks, then move it upwards towards your temples to finish off.
Step 2: Eyebrows
To shape your face and add structure, draw your brows on with a pencil, then use a spoolie to brush them upwards and out. Fill in any sparse areas with a brow gel or pencil that matches your hair colour.
Step 3: Eyes
For a classic and glam look, apply subtle eye shadow shades that will enhance your eye colour and add depth to your look. Use a nude palette to apply a light brown smoky eye onto your lids with a fluffy brush. Next, apply a shimmery white shadow onto the inner corners of your eyes to make them pop, then enhance your lashes with a volumizing mascara.
Step 4: Lips
To finish off your naturally glam look, arm yourself with a vibrant red lipstick. Use a liner to draw the outline of your lips, then fill in the surface of your lips with the lipstick. Don't forget to pack it in your purse for quick touch-ups!
Holiday parties are the perfect opportunity to show off a unique hairstyle that differs from usual bun or low ponytail. For glam and dishevelled curls, follow our 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Start by heating up a large barrel curling iron while you spray your hair with a heat protective spray. Once it's heated, curl large sections of your hair, strand by strand.
Step 2: Once your hair is completely curled, run a brush through the curls to soften them up. Apply texture spray then scrunch your strands with your fingers for a more dishevelled appearance.
Step 3: Finish off with a volumizing hairspray to hold your look in place all night!
An evening look wouldn't be complete without a glamorous manicure. Apply a top coat of polish onto each nail, then apply a silver glitter polish over each nail. Let it dry, then apply a second coat. Finish off by applying a clear top coat onto your nails!
