We’re in the thick of Christmas party season and if you really want to stand out from the crowd it’s all about ramping up the glamour with some statement makeup.
We take a look at the top trends we’ll be modelling in the coming weeks.
Berry red lips
Red is synonymous with Christmas and you should certainly be rocking the shade on your lips over the festive season. To ensure you stay mistletoe-ready for longer, opt for a matte lipstick and add a slick of gloss over the top.
Remember, if you’re opting for red lips, keep the rest of your makeup neutral so your pout really pops.
Tis the season to embrace sparkle. After all, when else can you get away with wearing full-on glitter?
Glitter works best on the eyes, especially when teamed with metallic shades. Use a darker eye shadow in a gunmetal grey on the lids and then add a lighter silvery shade to the inner corners. Finish off with a sweep of sparkling eyeliner.
No one’s going to believe you’ve got a tan in December, so opt for a natural festive glow instead. Use a shimmery highlighter on the apples of your cheeks to give you a radiant glow. A sweep of gold on the areas of your face which usually catch the light; your forehead, nose and cheekbones will make you shine like a star.
Don’t forget to add the finishing touches to your Christmas party look. Why not treat yourself to a manicure to see you through the festive season? You can match your nail colour to your lips and opt for a berry red, or choose a metallic shade which will complement all your Christmas outfits.
