Christmas party looks to see you through the festive season
'Tis the season to dress up and be merry, but it's not all about what you wear - it's the most wonderful time of the year to go bold with your makeup too. Need some beauty inspiration? Here are our favourite Christmas party makeup looks.Shop Makeup
METALLIC EYES AND MUTED LIPS
Metallic eyeshadow is one of the easiest ways to dress up your look for a party. We love a bronze shade paired with a muted mauve lip like Twig by MAC. Keep skin looking healthy and glowing with highlighter, and never underestimate the power of a good brow. We'd recommend getting them professionally shaped and looking their fullest with a gel such as Gimme Brow by Benefit.
GLITTER EYES AND NUDE LIPS
To really embrace the festive spirit, add some sparkle with a glitter eye. We love Stila’s Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow. The doe foot applicator means easy application with maximum impact. Or if you’re a blending pro, try the NARS Provocateur Eyeshadow Palette. Add lots of mascara, and to keep things low maintenance, leave lips nude or natural.
GLOSSY EYES AND LIPS
For a beauty look that’s on-trend, go glossy. Glossy eyes are just as impractical as they sound, so try adding Shiseido’s Aura Dew over your eyeshadow to create an illusion instead. Apply Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter before foundation for glowy skin and finish with a red lip gloss like Lancôme L'absolu Lacquer in 515.
