If you’re ditching all the stress and preparation of an at-home Christmas and jetting away to kick back and relax, we’ve got all the beauty must-haves to keep you looking phenomenal.

So grab some mulled wine, eggnog or hot chocolate as we give you the five products you’ll need to make this festive holiday all the more fabulous.

Tinted Moisturiser

With the right tinted moisturiser in your getaway bag you can have hydrated skin and light coverage in an instant. You'll even get some sun protection – perfect if you're going somewhere hot.

Depending on what you’re after, Bobbi Brown have an amazing BB Cream that provides coverage and factor 35 sun protection. BB creams and Tinted Moisturisers are the perfect, versatile alternative to your usual creams, and will leave your skin glowing, even and smooth.

Here at Cosmetify we know how important it is to serve incredible looks at the same time as feeling comfortable in your own skin. That's why we recommend a tinted moisturiser – it may not give you an airbrushed, full-coverage finish, but it’s Christmas. Chill and let that skin breathe! This one from NARS is awesome.

Brows that Wow

You might be on holiday, but bold and beautiful brows are always a necessity. It’s no secret that great-shaped brows completely transform your face for the better...if done right, that is.

Wow people with your impeccably arched and defined brows, and if you need help getting them perfect why not try Benefit's brilliant Ka-Brow? It's waterproof, long-lasting and has a rich cream-gel formula. The included angled brush is an extra treat that gives you utmost precision when refining your brows.
