Christmas time..mistletoe and wine...say hello to the most sociable time of the year with office parties, Christmas festivals and reunions. And as well as all the fun times catching up and, of course, Santa spotting, I get really excited about this time of year because it's also the opportunity for pushing the boat out with party makeup. To be honest, I think I would most likely look like an extra from Strictly Come Dancing if I had the time.
Because the balance between dialling up the glamour and slotting it in between work, families and the rest can be tricky. There are those lucky - and dexterous - enough to be able to do show-stopping looks in the blink of an eye; You Tube is always a great resource for those looking for videos on easy, how-to-do looks.
