Our Glamour Essentials Checklist Designed For The Party Season

The Holiday Season is in full swing and if you’re anything like me, you’re frantically trying to find that perfect outfit for the big New Year’s event…but what you haven’t thought about is the nail colour, the fake tan prep beforehand and of course the lip colour you’re going to need to complete the look. 

We’ve put together the ultimate SOS Glamour essentials list, so you can start the year glowing!

The base of all party looks, starts with a tan

Loving Tan Deluxe Gradual Tan Medium 150ml 

This gradual tan not only gives you that gorgeous bronzed tint, but it hydrates the skin and gives you a natural glow to replicate a natural-looking tan. Prep the skin before using by exfoliating all over and then apply the lotion with a mitt for a streak-free look!


MineTan Mink Foam 200ml 

Forgot to tan leading up to the big night…don’t worry this express tan will give you the glow you want in just one hour. The formula is enriched with vitamins and oils to give you a soft and velvety looking, hydrated glow. 


Sunescape Instant Wash Off Mousse - Just For The Night 150ml 

Need a one night tan…this is the bottle for you! Instantly achieve a bronzed glow with caramel undertones, to smoothen out uneven skin tones and increase your confidence and inner glow, and then simply wash off when you’re done. How good is that?!


Time for the nail prep! We don’t want to get ourselves all dressed up, to then have chipped and cracked, two-week old polish on…we’re all guilty of doing this at least once before.

OPI Start To Finish 

This three -in-one nail treatment combines a base coat and natural nail strengthener in one. The key to the perfect nail is the base coat and the treatment so use this before adding that splash of colour. 


Now you’re prepped it’s time to pick your colour!

If you want the Hailey Bieber holiday nails then this is the colour she uses.

OPI Big Apple Red Nail Lacquer 15ml


OPI Rapidry Spray 55ml

This is a must for when you’re in a rush and don’t have time to sit and watch your nails dry. Plus, it will help stop the polish from smudging or chipping, which means your polish will last for longer!


Aside from your full makeup look, which of course you will need a good primer, glowing foundation, and a strong eyeshadow palette to set the look up, the cherry on top is going to be your lip colour…

If you’re going for the Hailey Bieber nails, why not match it with a hot red lip…get in the festive spirit!

Here’s a few of our must have lip products:

Elizabeth Arden Advanced Lip Fix Cream 15ml

Any good makeup artist will ALWAYS start the look with a balm or repair cream. This fix cream will condition the lips, to soften the appearance of dryness, whilst also minimising the bleed and feathering of the lipstick. 


Napoleon Perdis Taking Shape Lip Liner 

Line, define and enhance your natural lip shape before finishing off with your lipstick. The super smooth formula isn’t going to smudge and is perfect for long wear, so your lips will look on point all night long! If you’re not one for a bold lip, try using a liner on its own in a natural-pink tone for a subtle, yet glamorous look. 


Eye Of Horus Bio Goddess Lipstick 4g

Finish the look with this soft, satin lipstick formulated with a marine botanical to plump lip volume and condition the lips for a rented suppleness with defined fullness.
