It is finally December, and with the Christmas parties slowly approaching, it’s time to crack open the glitter and get glammed for party season. From bold smokey eyes, to a glamorous bold lip we’ve listed the best makeup looks to get you party ready:
1. Smoky Eyes
You can never go wrong with the ultra-glam smokey eye look; the perfect way to make a bold statement against a plain dress. Why not try adding a little gold glitter to a bronze smokey eye, or silver against a darker smoky eye, to add a little festivity to your makeup.
2. Coloured Eye liner
This season, don't just stick to the simple black liner; why not try some colours to help your eyes pop. For those with green eyes, a purple liner is perfect, whilst those with brown eyes can follow Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall makeup style and try a teal glitter liner, underneath the eyes. Soft violet and brown tones against blue eyes provide a gorgeous contrast, ensuring your eyes are the main attraction. Tip: When wearing bright liners and shades around the eyes, try to keep the lips and cheek a little softer.
3. Dark Lipstick
The classic vamp look has continued past the Halloween season and into our festivities. Darker lipsticks provide an ultra-glam look, perfect against that little black dress or sequin number. Worn by Selena Gomez, a glossy berry lip is perfect for adding a little shine to lips, or if you prefer a more matte look, blot lips after application.
If there is any occasion where it is acceptable to add a little shimmer and glow to our makeup regime, then the festive party season is definitely it. Highlighters have been a huge trend all throughout 2015, and will be sure to return in 2016. Why not add a little shimmer or highlighter to your cheek bones for your Christmas party? The trick is to illuminate to where the light naturally reflects on your face, i.e. your cupids bow, cheek bones, along the narrow line of your nose and across your forehead.
5. Rosy Cheeks
The colder months have definitely brought out a natural rose to our cheeks, but rosy cheeks are also a perfect makeup trend for this season. After applying makeup, why not add a subtle pinky sweep across your cheeks for an extra boost of colour. Tip: For those wanting a more natural look, then try a cream pink blush.
6. Winged Liner
The classic cat eye look is a trend seen throughout every season, especially for the more glamorous occasions. For those looking for a more muted and nude look, why not try adding a thin winged liner to add a little glamour.
So why not try a new makeup trend this season and make a bold statement. Whether you’re looking for a simple look, or want to add an extra pop of colour, try one that’s best suited to you and your party attire this season.
