From sultry eyes to a bold lip, discover the beauty trends to try this party season and give your look that extra touch of seasonal sparkle.
SLEEK AND SMOKY
Soft, sultry and striking, this powerful look for eyes will have you party-ready in an instant. Keeping the rest of your make-up clean and minimal is key: a sleek pony tail and peach matte lip make the perfect partners to this look.
GET THE LOOK: Draw a thick line of liquid liner along the lower lash line and layer a few different shades of metallic shadow over the lids, following the eye’s natural curve to create a smudged wing effect. Blend a strobe cream into the creases of your eyes to really make them pop, then brush your brows upwards, supermodel-style. Blow-dry your hair and smooth through a small amount of serum or hair oil for a glossy finish. Divide hair into a centre parting and twist it into a side pony tail for a sleek yet simple style that lets your eyes do the talking.
SHINY PRETTY THING
Your everyday look could do with a touch of glitter. It’s the perfect disco-ready touch for an otherwise bare-faced look, and it’s super easy to achieve.
GET THE LOOK: Get your dewy base nailed and then dip your brush in glitter to coat your lids: sweep the glitter over your base eyeshadow on your lids, into the creases of your eyes and along your brow bones. For added shimmer, dot creamy gold highlighter along your cheekbones and get ready to glow!
THE RED LIP REIMAGINED
Replace traditional pillar-box red with a soft coral shade for a festive season refresh. Mix undertones of cherry and orange and leave lips unlined to give a softer look. It’s quick, unfussy and perfectly polished: what’s not to love?
GET THE LOOK: Apply matte lipstick – try an orangey-red – to the centre of the lips. Using your ring finger, gently blend the colour over the lips to diffuse it out towards the lip line.
