Sparkle and shine this Christmas
The party season provides the perfect excuse to dig out your pots of glitter and sparkle and shine, especially when it comes to achieving an eye-catching look.
Oh and if, like us, you love your glitter, you’ll be pleased to hear that it’s one of this season’s core trends – not that it would have stopped us anyway! Simply take your favourite eye colour and add a little sprinkle of cosmetic glitter in the inner concern of the eye! Of course, if you really want to achieve a stand out look there’s nothing stopping you from adding a healthy dose of glitter too.
Go forth and sparkle!
The 5-minute Smokey eye
From work Christmas parties to family dinner parties, dancing and being merry is an integral part of the season.
However, with so many places to be and people to see, many of us find ourselves being forced to spruce up our faces in record time – often after work or on the go! But the good news is that it is possible to nail the perfect smokey eye even when you’re pushed for time.
Simply take a dark crayon (these are fantastic for when you’re working with limited time!), run it across the lid of your eye, and blend, blend, blend. Then add a little liner pushed through the lashes. To achieve the ultimate finish, the BASE Defininer brush will help the application process.
Finally, add a healthy dose of mascara, and BOOM – you’re party ready!
Colour popping lips
Popping bursts of colour on your lips have been one of the make up world’s key trends for several seasons now, and it’s fair to say that it never gets boring.
A stand out lip will not only add a new and exciting dimension to your outfit, it is also perfect for helping you to achieve the ultimate party look. Opt for a luscious red, perky pink, or striking cyber purple to create an eye-popping finish. Remember though, when you’re opting for a bold, stand out lip, it’s always best to team it with muted makeup so it’s not as over-powering.
