5 Essentials For The Party Season | Clozette
The festive season is upon us and that just means your schedule is packed with holiday get-togethers to attend and people to meet. Whether it be for brunches with your girls, dinners with your SO, all-nighters at the coolest clubs – you’re going to want to look and feel your best. 

The helpful folks that we are, we came up with five essentials you need this month to survive this happy, but hectic season.



If you don’t already have one, make place for a primer on your dressing table. It preps your skin for makeup, helps it go on smooth, and makes sure your foundation stays in place no matter where the night takes you. We like the Clio Kill Cover Realest Wear Moist Primer that hydrates the skin while absorbing excess sebum so you’re glowing for all the right reasons.
Dry Shampoo

Revive yesterday’s blow dry, instantly add volume and keep your hair looking fresh and clean with a dry shampoo. The Toni&Guy Hair Meets Wardrobe Cleanse dry shampoo tackles greasy scalp and puts life back into limp locks, and the advanced formula means no white powder telltale signs.


When you live in a tropical country, this is a must-have no matter what the season. During the festive month however, you want one that will keep you fresh longer, without an overwhelming scent and definitely one that won’t show up on your LBD. Opt for the Dove Clear Touch Anti White Marks that is gentle on your skin, fights BO, and won’t transfer on your favourite LBD.

Pond’s Flawless White Re-Brightening 
Night Treatment Moisturiser

Make the most of your beauty sleep (even if it’s for a few hours) with this effective night treatment that will repair skin damage, lighten and even out skin tone to ensure you wake up with a glowing, radiant complexion.

Closeup Deep Action Red Hot

You know that absolutely no look is complete without a dazzling smile. Closeup Deep Action with its Micro Shine Crystals effectively whitens teeth making them beautifully brighter with every brush. Closeup Deep Action comes in intense zesty Red Hot flavor and cool minty Menthol Fresh flavor to give you fresh breath and the confidence to talk to that cutie across the room. And really, who can resist a dazzling smile?



If you’re wondering what to add to your colleague’s Christmas stocking this year, look no further than My Castel Hand Cream from Etude House. She will surely appreciate the intensely moisturising, yet lightweight hand cream that is rich in shea butter and six other herbal ingredients that leave her hardworking hands refreshed and hydrated. 

And unlike regular hand creams, these come packaged in adorable fairytale castles that will make a pretty addition to her desk. Choose from Pink Wish, Ice Frozen, Magic Sweet or Forever Rose, which will ensure her every day has a fairytale ending. 

Available at all Etude House stores.

The best part about the holiday season--aside from the fun, festive spirit all around--is the array of get-togethers planned with family and friends. And when you've got a calendar full of brunches, dinners, and parties, it's always great to have a variety of holiday-ready makeup looks handy for when you need to quickly get yourself ready for the month's festivities.

So we looked around the Youtube Beauty Community and have put together a roundup of our favourite makeup looks perfect for this holiday season.
