After some glamorous beauty looks that you can rock throughout the Christmas period? Then you've come to the right place, because heat's Beauty Team have whipped up three incredible makeup styles using Boots products that will see you through every festive soirée, whether it's an office Xmas 'do or New Year's Eve. The party starts here...

The Golden Glow Look

This warm Christmas look - as modelled by heat's Assistant Style Editor Jazz - is perfect if you want to look like you've been on a mini-break somewhere tropical just before Christmas.

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips using the e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator from Boots to remove any dry patches and prep them for lipstick. 👄

Step 2: Using your fingers or a beauty sponge, dab a few drops of the Lancome Custom Drops Liquid Highlighter in Golden Glow to your cheekbones, which acts like an illuminating primer. Ooh la la!

Step 3: Apply the lightest shade in the Smashbox Photo Edit Eye Shadow Trio in #goals all over your eyelids. Then, layer the medium shade onto the centre of your lids. Dab the bronze shimmer shade from the Obsession Be In Love With Eyeshadow Palette on top for a sultry finish.

Step 4: Use the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Ink Liner Black from Boots to line the top of your lids, before smudging it out with a smudger brush and a brown shade from Smashbox Photo Edit Eye Shadow Trio in #goals. 👁

Step 5: We're all about a bit of drama at Christmas, so be sure to apply some Eylure Texture 117 False Lashes for a defining finish. To blend them in so that they look seamless, apply a layer of the No7 Lash Extender Mascara in Black from Boots.

Step 6: If your brows need grooming, brush them up with an eyebrow brush.

Step 7: Apply the Max Factor Radiant Lift Foundation from Boots to your skin using a foundation brush, to even out any skin discolouration and leave your face glowing. Top tip: you can also use this as an under-eye concealer. ✨

Step 8: Time to bronze up, baby! Dust the Benefit Hoola Bronzer from Boots over your cheekbones, the sides of your forehead and down your neck for a holiday-worthy glow.

Step 9: To accentuate your cheekbones and add more shimmer to your look, swipe the Wet n Wild Mega Glo Highlighting Powder in Blossom across the tops of your cheeks. This affordable highlighter can also be used under your brow bone and down the centre of your nose for an extra glitter boost!

Step 10: Mix together Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in 07 Honey Shimmer and the Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Crème in Nude Honey to create a gorgeous, long-lasting nude colour for your pout.

The Glitter Cut Crease

This Christmas, go bold like heat's Style Writer Rachael, and opt for a party-worthy glitter cut crease. After all, it isn't party season without a little bit of glitter, right?

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips using the e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator from Boots to remove any dry patches and prep them for lipstick.

Step 2: Prep your skin using the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to help ensure that it stays put all night long, even while you party the evening away.

Step 3: Taking the Wet n Wild Colour Eyeshadow Quads Walking on Egg Shells, apply the cream colour over your eyelids, and then work the light brown shade into your crease. Next, take the glittering Rimmel Wonder Swipe Instafamous Eyeliner and layer it to create a gorgeous glitter cut crease. Keep your eyes closed until the glitter had dried to avoid any smudging! ✨

Step 4: With a steady hand, apply the Smashbox Always On Liquid Liner from Boots to your upper lash line to create a cat flick.

Step 5: Curl those lashes! Then apply a generous two coats of the Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara for a flutter-worthy finish. If you want to add falsies too, now's the time to do it.

Step 6: Apply the complexion-saving Max Factor Radiant Lift Foundation from Boots to your skin using a foundation brush, and be sure to take it down your neck, too.

Step 7: Add some dimension to your face by working the darker shades of the IT Cosmetics You Sculpted!™ 15.28g Contouring Palette into the hollows of your cheekbones, down the sides of your nose and under your jawline. Get it, gurl! 💅🏼

Step 8: Set your makeup by spritzing it with the Loreal Paris Infalliable Fixing Mist from Boots, which helps to hold your makeup in place and stop it from smudging or melting off.

Step 9: Dust the Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Highlighter Face Powder onto the tops of your cheekbones for a festive glow. The reason you should do this after you spritz your fixing mist is because it will melt into the product and look even more illuminating!

Step 10: If your brows need grooming, brush them up with an eyebrow brush.

Step 11: Nothing quite screams Christmas makeup like a bold red lip. Using a brush for precision, apply the Yves Saint Laurent Tatouage Couture Matte Lip Stain in No.7 onto your lips and you'll soon be ready for a kiss under the mistletoe. ❤️

The Sultry Smokey Eye

Make like heat's Style Editor Laura, and don a sultry smokey eye this festive period. Seeing as this look is all about the eyes, you'll want to keep the rest of your face understated.

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips using the e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator from Boots to remove any dry patches and prep them for lipstick.

Step 2: Create the perfect base for your makeup by applying the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer onto clean skin.

Step 3: Let's get those eyes on fleek. Taking the Obsession Be In Love With Eyeshadow Palette, apply Soulmate (a reddish/brown shade) to your lids and blend, blend, blend! Use the shade Beau in the crease, outer corners of your eyes and on your lower lash line to add depth and dimension. Then, dab on a the shimmer Dreamer shade in the centre to make your eye pop! ⭐️

Step 4: Highlight your brown bone using the Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Highlighter Face Powder from Boots to open up the brow area and create the illusion of space.

Step 5: Create a sexy cat flick using the NYX Professional Makeup Epic Ink Liner Black, and apply this in your waterline, too.

Step 6: Apply the Eylure Texture 117 False Lashes for a dramatic finish, and remember to blend them in using the No7 Lash Extender Mascara in Black from Boots.

Step 7: If you have any gaps in your eyebrows, fill them in with the Benefit Gimmie Brow from Boots. This clever product contains tiny microfibers that will adhere to your skin and hairs to create natural-looking fullness and definition. 💁🏼

Step 8: Use a beauty sponge to evenly apply the Loreal Paris True Match Foundation onto your face and neck. This velvety foundation will leave you with a flawless finish.

Step 9: Conceal any dark under eye areas with the Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer from Boots, and wave goodbye to tired-looking eyes.

Step 10: Add some dimension to your face by working the darker shades of the IT Cosmetics You Sculpted!™ 15.28g Contouring Palette into the hollows of your cheekbones, down the sides of your nose and under your jawline.

Step 11: Keep your lips understated by swiping the Sleek Lip Shot in Don't Ask over them. Nude lips are go! 💋
