Windows filling with shiny garlands, Sinatra singing "White Christmas" and ..guess what? Party season!
Sequin dresses and golden heels, the shinier, the better! Bold cranberry lipstick and red hair bows, it's the most wonderful.. and glamorous time of the year. More opportunities to get all dolled up and wear heels, what else can a girl ask for?
So, inspired by what's coming up I created an evening/going out look using my favorite products this season.
Here's the products and tips&tricks on how I created it:
- Jemma Kidd Crushed Jewel Duo in 01, Lolite is one of my favorite products for an evening look and it's super easy to create super-glamorous eyes in minutes. Just blend the cream all over Your lids and finish by sweeping the glitter on top. It does not have the usual heavy glitter feeling, it's super light and blendable, the cream does not crease at all.. a must have in every make-up bag! Plus, You don't always need to use both of these products together. The cream is a great base for a smoky eye that will last for ages as well and sometimes I just sweep the glitter over an eyeshadow primer and add some falsies for a more subtle look when going out. Also, You can use it as an eyeliner.. The variations are limitless and, although this product has been around for a while now, I just can't get over the fact how amazing it is!
- Keep everything else plain and simple - the heavy eye and fresh face combo will look very high-fashion. If the rest of the face is too done up, You might end looking more drag than catwalk. So, leave the brows natural and bushy, blend a light foundation over the cheek, nose, forehead and chin area and cover blemishes with a good concealer such as my personal favorite - Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection.
- Don't powder - YET! I know it's very hard to keep away from the loose powder to finish off a look and although we will leave the house looking amazing, after a few glasses of champagne and hitting the dancefloor, the foundation might decide to move around the face a bit, and leave us looking more shiny than sparkling. So, don't powder but DO take a light loose powder with You for a much needed touch-up during the night. Just don't go overboard!
- Finish the look with some highlighter on top of the cheekbones - Bourjois Illuminating Touch - will work brilliantly!
What is Your must-have for the party season?
Lots of love,
