Christmas is the time to sparkle and shine… make the festive season yours with glorious beauty and fashion treats perfect for yourself… or someone else. By Beverly Ligman.

The silly season is nigh, and curating special looks for festive parties is suddenly top of mind. To help save time we’ve found a few lovely bits and bobs to elevate your look, and make gifting easy with a touch of touch of festive sparkle.

Skin prep is a thing

Before you get your tinsel in a tangle about attending Christmas parties, start at the beginning. Proper skin prep gives you a fabulous base to start from. We love Jana Beauty where you can literally design your own facial (with add-ons) to individualise it to your skin needs. Prices start at $90 for an Express Facial and add-ons start from $10. Pop in and see the Jana team and let them get you party ready.

Beauty’s an inside job

Dose-Co.jpg

If you haven’t tried it yet, get some ingestible collagen into your beauty routine. There’s heaps of brands to choose from, but we’ve tried this one and it’s not only budget friendly, it also works! The premise is incredibly simple, you pop a tablespoon of it into a smoothie or your water every day and it works from the inside out to plump your skin and give you a fabulous pre-Christmas glow- up. There’s also a creamer that you can add straight to your tea or coffee… it really couldn’t be more simple!

Dose & Co Pure Collagen Powder and flavoured creamers, from $24.95 @ Coles, 44 Station Street, Subiaco.

Get thee to Mecca

There’s a reason that Mecca is well, a mecca for beauty. Not only do they do Christmas gifting right, they also stock Zoe Foster Blake’s Go-To range (of which we highly recommend the new Much Brighter Skin Serum, $59) and offer services such as fake eye-lash application for just $15 and can also do your make-up for that important Christmas party too. Book online.

Mecca Cosmetica, 1-13 Rockeby Road Subiaco, www.mecca.com.au

Statement jewels

If you can’t be extra in the festive season, then when can you be? These blue and gold beauties from local gals Mountain & Moon will elevate any outfit and scream hot girl summer.

Mountain & Moon Athena earrings, $170 from Emporia, 271 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco.

Light-up

Glasshouse-Merry-Bright.jpg

I love me a Christmas candle, and Aussie brand Glasshouse Fragrances have just released a deliciously scented ‘The Colour of Christmas’ range, that you absolutely need in your life. With scents such as Night Before Christmas (Dancing Sugarplums) or Merry & Bright (Pineapple Mint Fizz) these are a fabulous gift to self or for your fellow candle addicts.

From $54.95 @ Pharmacy 777, 136 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco.

Darling heart

Kylie Minogue has just relaunched her scent ‘Darling’ and we think it’s worth a spritz (or two). The Aussie icon says it’s full of “sensual musks and rich woods” and just like the gal herself it oozes easy style and sophistication. It’s also now completely vegan. We think it’s perfect for those hot Summer days with top notes of passion fruit, freesia and lychee and at this price point it also makes a darling present.

Kylie Minogue Darling, $29.99 for 75ml @ Chemist Warehouse, 105 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco.

Crowning glory

My-Organics.jpg

Don’t forget to love your luscious locks this festive season. Italian brand My Organics has two delicious Goji berry based products that will have mistreated beachy hair back to party fabulous in no time. We love the Goji Miracle Mask ($16.99) and Goji Angel Potion ($14.99).

Chemist Warehouse, 105 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco.

Final flourish

Glamour-Nail-Bar.jpg

While it’s not an actual Christmas ‘rule’ we believe it should be. Sparkly, red, green or coral festive nails are most definitely a thing. If you’ve run out of time you can pop in to Subiaco Nail without an appointment for a 20 minute shellac for just $25 or if you want to go fancy pants with Christmas nail art, make an appointment at Glamour Nail Bar.

Subiaco Nail, 16b Rokeby Rd, Subiaco.

Don’t forget the bubbles

Cherubino-sparkling-rose.jpg

Is there any better excuse than Christmas to drink Champagne? We don’t think so. We suggest you take a break from the Christmas shopping at Cherubino’s City Cellar tucked away atop the Rokeby Road shopping strip. With delicious charcuterie and cheese boards and a fantastic bubbles and wine selection you’ll be spoilt for choice. And if you need to take a bottle home for a festive catch-up, they’re also a bottle shop on your way out, genius.

169-171 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco.
