Hair tools, glow-giving make-up, body buffers and fragrances – you name it, Next is one of the best destinations to shop for beauty and stock up on all the essentials ahead of party season. I've just bought another bottle of Nuxe’s Huile Prodigieuse Golden Shimmer Dry Oil. It's the ultimate natural glow-giver for both your hair and skin. I also swear by Maison Margiela's Jazz Club EDT at this time of year. Its rich notes of vanilla, vetiver, tobacco and tonka bean are the definition of sophistication. Plus this mini size is perfect to throw in your handbag. 

I love these double-ended pencils from ICONIC LONDON. Easy to just swipe on and go, use them to create a fun smokey eye in minutes. LAYER UP for more intensity or keep it sheer for a wet-look lid.

My skin often suffers in the winter – so keeping it plump and hydrated is always a priority. Bobbi Brown’s Vitamin Enriched Face Base is my secret weapon.Elsewhere, I want my festive make-up to still feel like me – only perhaps a bit more ‘party-ready’. Extra luminosity with a bit of blush and highlight is a simple way to do it and this cheek trio can be applied to the lids or the inner corners of your eyes. Plus, a great fragrance is non-negotiable for me and from YSL to Tom Ford, Next’s range is impressive. Right now, Prada's Paradoxe is high on my list.

Great hair is paramount for party season and the DYSON MULTI-STYLER is a lazy girl’s cheat. If it’s not quite in your budget, NEXT HAS PLENTY of alternatives worth checking out – ghd and Babyliss are some of my favourites.

When it comes to make-up, full kudos goes to this brilliant NARS Light Reflecting Eye Brightener for making me look far more radiant than I might feel during party season. No matter how many parties I’ve been to and cocktails I’ve drunk, one swipe of this under each eye counteracts any dark circles and dullness and leaves me looking totally refreshed. Overnight products really come into their own over the festive season. Throughout December I make sure this Elemis Superfood Midnight Facial is firmly on my bedside table – it’s such an essential for disguising lack of sleep.

Sinking into a HOT FOAMING TUB of INDULGENT RITUALS bath foam is a must at the end of a long day of Christmas shopping. Elsewhere, Next's MEGA CRACKERS are such a treat.
