Beauty Tips From the Top

14 Dec 2011

Viva’s Beauty Editor Kirsten Doak gives you her grooming tips for the month

Party Tricks
Givenchy’s new holiday range will take your make-up from daytime to drama in minutes. Try the Phenomen’eyes Mascara in black, plum or gold sparkles which, like most items in the collection, come infused with actual glitter. Also in the range is the Prisme eyeshadow and lip glosses but your festive must-have is L’Or Celeste - an atomised bottle of soft golden shimmer powder. Spray it all over for a glamorous glow, from Dhs140.

Ho, ho, Jo!
For the ultimate in luxurious stocking fillers look no further than Jo Malone. Choose from your old favourite fragrances or spice it up with seasonal goodies – our pick is the new roasted chestnut candle, Dhs200, which is Christmas in a sniff. Your gift comes tucked in a chroma box complete with a cracker and a crimson ribbon. Pomegranate Noir gift box, Dhs455.

Kiss me Kate
She models, she sings… and now, rather than simply being the face of Rimmel, Kate Moss has developed a lipstick in collaboration with them. The new Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick collection, Dhs36.50 each, comes in 15 of the best party shades and is infused with light-reflecting Black Diamond to give you a special splash of sparkle that will take you from day to night.

YSL's Wintergreen and Moonlight Blue nail varnishes are your party season polishes. The deep, dark shades have just enough sparkle to see you through to the New Year, Dhs100
