There’s no better time than the festive period to up the ante and try out a new make up look. Maybe it’s the season for your eyes to shine, or perhaps you want to embrace Christmas in its entirety on your visage. Whatever the reason, these three looks are great for the festive party period:
- Shimmer and Shine
If you feel like giving the Christmas lights a run for their money this year, bust out that shimmery finishing powder and get ready to shine. Not only is this wonder product the perfect solution for a dewy finish, its 100% mineral formula contains zero oil and is completely cruelty free.
Sweep across the skin after applying your usual foundation. For an extra glow, sweep some glittery highlighter over your cheekbones, just under your eyebrow bone, across your forehead and the bridge of your nose and you’re all set to dazzle on Christmas day.
2. Emerald Eyes
To be the envy of all your friends this party season, embrace the green-eyed monster, quite literally.
You will need:
- A good quality curling mascara
- Emerald-green eyeliner
- A steady hand
Take the emerald liner and with a steady hand, gently pull the outer corner and draw a line all the way along your top lash. Smudge lightly, curl your eyelashes and apply your curling mascara. Repeat for the other eye. You can make the emerald line as thick as you like, depending on your shape.
Keep the rest of your make up clean to make your eyes really pop!
- Winter Berry Lips
To really embrace the festive season, keep your eye make up clean and vamp up your look with a winter berry lip. Prep the lips with a beeswax balm and then draw a line around the lips with a colour slightly darker than your bold lippie.
Once this line is complete, take the winter berry shade of your choice and apply onto your lips. Blot lightly with a tissue and you’re ready to rock around that Christmas tree.
