The party season is about to hit – and we all want to look and feel amazing all night long. After all, no one should linger under the mistletoe unprepared.

To ensure you look glamorous and stay sultry, we’ve hand-picked two sets of beauty products – both of which are small enough to fit into your clutch.

Armani Holiday Palette 2017

If your clutch is so dainty that only one beauty item can fit in, then this is the one you want. The two tiers hold all that is needed to create a breathtaking look.

The first tier is all about the eyes. The 10 new eye shadows allow you to change your look during the night according to your mood. The second tier is about flawless complexion. Conceal, correct and contour.

NARS Overexposed Glow Highlighter (Man Ray for NARS Holiday 2017 Collection)

This highlighter gives your skin a luminous sheen. It strikes a balance between high shine and natural luminosity. It gave my skin a rose gold undertone, and it’s surprisingly long-lasting. (Mine lasted more than six hours.)

Benefit They’re Real! Double the Lip (Mini Size)

Get fuller-looking lips in one easy stroke. This lip-liner-and-lipstick-in-one is incredibly creamy. It does come off after many glasses of mulled wine, but the teardrop shape makes it easy to reapply.

Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Hand Cream

This hand cream is extremely hydrating, keeping your hands smooth all night long, without any sticky or greasy feeling. It also smells lovely.


Muji Cleansing Cotton Buds

These individually wrapped cleansing cotton buds can help you get through a sweaty night of dancing. They are convenient for touch-ups.

Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder Aura Gloss in Honey

This high-shine gloss, with a gold pearl shimmer, makes for sexy lips. It can also be used on the cheeks and on the bridge of the nose for a sculpted look.

LANEIGE Ideal Shadow Quad (Holiday Edition)

It doesn’t really matter if you are a K-beauty fan or not, this palette is worth considering. The highly adhering formula makes for a long-lasting effect. You can further highlight your eyes with the pearl glitter that resembles sprinkled confetti.

YSL Touche Éclat

This radiance boosting pen is a party must-have. It conceals dark circles and highlights your best features, giving your face an instant glow.

L’Occitane Roses et Reines Roll-on Eau de Toilette Intense

This delicate, fresh and lovely fragrance is easy to carry and use. It doesn’t last too long so you will need to re-apply during the night.

HK$11.7 million bejewelled clutch is the ultimate luxury minaudière

SHOW Mini Finishing Spray

In a clutch-friendly 50ml size, it will keep your hair lustrous and in shape throughout the night. The argan oil and wheat protein replenish, moisturise and repair your hair.
