Go Wild With These 3 Party Makeup Looks | Clozette

Sporting a classic red lip or smoky eyes during your Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties is still gorgeous, but why not change it up this year? From slate, to gold, and to berry, The Body Shop’s three different makeup looks – using their limited edition makeup collections that are both glamorous and right on trend – will ensure that you kick off the party season with a roar.

Are you ready to slay the upcoming wild festive nights? Keep reading below for the three inspiring party makeup looks that will add emphasis to all your best facial features.


Rock The Night

Get that ‘girl-about-town’ vibe on point with this rocker chick look. By combining black with a metallic blue and silver for your eyes, it provides a beautiful contrast with the red lips. The result: a mesmerising MOTD that will draw in anyone you look at.


Go For Gold

We like to call this one the “holiday vamped up” look with its strong brows and vampy lips balanced against warm golds on the eyes and natural-looking lashes – a modern twist on a cocktail hour classic.

A True Romance

Combine berry tones with soft pinks and you'll get a sultry-meets-sweet look that is perfect for when you’re waiting for that movie-inspired under-the-mistletoe kiss. It’s bold yet strong, classic yet modern – a true romance indeed.

All that recycled cabin air coupled with a potential climate change when you land in your holiday destination can cause serious damage to your skin. From a dry, dehydrated mess to a dull-looking complexion, the possibilities of distressed skin are endless whenever you're on a holiday.

Luckily, sheet masks exist – travel-friendly face masks created to soothe or treat any skin issues, leading them to become in-flight and vacation must-haves ever since. So if you’re heading someplace where you know your skin might suffer this holiday season, we round up the best sheet masks you should bring on your upcoming trip.

It’s that time of the year again -- the streets are bustling with shoppers, the aroma of scented candles fills the air, and Christmas carols play all day long. Merrymaking is everywhere, but no one’s complaining!

An event-filled December means lots of catching up with friends and relatives you haven’t seen in awhile, so you definitely want to look your best. Take the opportunity to reward yourself with these beauty indulgences brought to you by the team behind beauty service booking app, Vaniday. Ps: keep reading to find a special treat below just for you!



Eyelash extensions aren’t an everyday thing for most of us, but there’s every reason to get them during the festive season, especially if you need that extra 'oomph' to go with your flashy Christmas outfits. Imagine taking mascara application and eyelash curling out of your makeup routine, and still have voluminous, long lashes -- it’s the one time you can actually say “I woke up like this” proudly.

Highbrow is a leading brow and lash specialist that offers three lash services: Lash by Lash, Cluster, and Korean Cirrus extensions. Each one creates a specific look to suit the different styles of customers. Lash by Lash involves the attachment of individual strands to each real eyelash, which creates a natural look best for ladies going for a simple enhancement.

Cluster lashes are for those who love all eyes on them -- they can really boost your drama factor, with a bunch of strands attached to each eyelash for a fuller and more voluminous look. Korean Cirrus is a mix of both, and is perfect for sexy mamas that ooze sophistication. To tailor the lash extensions to suit you even more, the beautician designs the best lash configuration for you based on your eye shape.


Auriga Spa at Capella Hotel

Forget kissing under the mistletoe. Imagine this: scented candles, glasses of bubbly, and a private jacuzzi surrounded by lush greenery await as you and your partner indulge in a full-body massage. The Auriga Spa takes your holiday romance to the next level with their wholesome couple spa retreats sure to please even the fussiest of lovebirds. Their three specialty day spas for couples are carefully crafted for an all-rounded, unique spa experience. Here’s a quick guide to help you pick the one that suits you best:

P.S. I Love You

An experience guaranteed to get you in the mood for love - we’re talking a head to toe rose and jasmine oil massage, a rose foot scrub ritual in a private garden, and a sensual, candlelit rose petal bath all for the two of you. That’s not all -- you’re in for a treat of refreshing cocktails and refreshments at Bob’s bar, a stunning Cuban-inspired alfresco diner with sassy tunes playing all day. Wagyu beef skewers and a rum cocktail, anyone?

Senja Sunyi Ritual

The perfect pre-event prep. “Senja Sunyi” literally means “dusk silence” in Bahasa Indonesia, which is an apt name for a full pampering experience that eases into the evening. The massage uses a combination of Javanese and Tui Na techniques, along with heated moonstones to release the tension from your muscles. This is followed by an organic rose facial, and treats at The Knolls, a Mediterranean fine dining restaurant by the sea.


The ultimate head to toe indulgence ideal for couples planning a short stay-cation. The experience begins with a Rose and Ylang Ylang scrub, and a body wrap to detox and nourish the skin. A full-body massage comes after to ease tired muscles out, followed by a revitalising honey and jasmine facial. Then, you’re off for afternoon tea with a spectacular view of the beach at The Knolls -- if that’s not romantic, we’re not sure what is!



Think sleek, spacious private styling rooms and immaculate service -- that’s BRANCHE Nails for you. Be prepared to feel like royalty the moment you step into the 1,400 square foot boutique in Capitol Piazza, where you’ll be swiftly escorted to an automatic reclining chair in one of the hip, exquisitely furnished private rooms and served a warm beverage and snack. We hear the Matcha latte is better than any you can find at Japanese cafes here.

Ever heard of nail polish that accelerates the recovery of damaged nails? BRANCHE is the only salon in Singapore that offers Paragel, a highly durable gel technique that is considered by many to be the most advanced nail technology in Asia. You never have to worry about thinning your nails anymore since the Paragel technique does not require any buffing or sanding. The nail polish sticks to the nails nice and smooth, and is even more durable than regular gel nail polishes, showing no signs of chipping or peeling for up to 4 weeks.

Nail maestro Safori is the only certified Paragel in Singapore whose portfolio is impressive to say the least. She has designed for big names like Shu Uemura, styled international celebrities to the likes of Mariah Carey, and is no stranger to the media. A heads-up though: book fast if you want to get your nails done for the upcoming celebrations because her slots get snapped up like hotcakes.


Firma Skin

Breaking out during the holidays is quite a nightmare. Conveniently located at Market Street in Singapore’s CBD, Firma Skin is a facial bar that offers express treatments that last no more than an hour. Quality is in no way compromised, though -- Firma Skin keeps it simple, providing only the bare necessities of the best quality using the latest technologies. Ps: their serums and essences are developed by a team of in-house scientists.

Firma Skin’s oxygen facial is perfect for those in need of a quick skin cleanse. Its three essential treatments exfoliate and infuse nutrients into the skin while stimulating oxygenation, alleviating damage from free radicals for a clearer complexion. If your skin has been especially congested lately, you may want to opt for a microdermabrasion facial instead. The painless technique is massively popular these days because it is one of the few non-chemical and non-invasive procedures that deliver quick results.
