3. Jazz it up with glitter


Pucker up and slather on some sparkly cheer on your lips with a glossy lip shine or instead, apply a creamy lipstick (preferably red) and then brush on the glitter using a flat brush. If you are not a fan of the glitter pout, then a cute glittery or sequin top will do the trick too!

4. Use green tea bags to reduce puffy eye bags


Save on expensive eye creams and reduce puffy eye bags with a green tea bag! All you have to do is to steep the tea bags in hot water for about 3 minutes and chill the tea bags after for about 20 minutes before placing them over your eyes.  The tannins present in the tea bags stimulate healthy blood circulation and tightens and soothes the skin, while the caffeine reduces swelling and puffiness, as well as help to eliminate dark circles.

5. Get a gel manicure / pedicure


A DIY Christmas manicure is one way to skimp on cost but getting a gel manicure might just be a more cost-effective option. A gel manicure lasts longer and given that you’ll be busy with festive preparations, you don’t have to worry about your polish chipping, and it will definitely last you till New Year’s!
