Now December is in full swing, the festive lights are appearing around everyones homes and thoughts turn to Christmas parties and events, I thought I would put together a party themed makeup look to kickstart the week. For any makeup addicts out there, Christmas is the perfect time to don the glitter, grab the gold shadows and embrace those festive colours and shades that throughout the year might find themselves getting pushed to the back of the cupboard. Christmas is all about the shimmer & sparkle and I’m more than ready to get on board ;)
For this festive look I took inspiration from The Body Shop and their Christmas Party Makeup Trends. Perfect for those looking for a spot of inspiration, there are looks ranging from a true romance to rock the night and go for gold which I picked. As I wanted to go for a bold berry lip my fave I kept the eyes a tad more neutral with that all important hint of gold. Using the Eye Colour Stick in Nevada Gold* I prepped my lids ready to go in with the Go for Gold Eyeshadow Quad*. I kept the inner corner bright with the top right gold shadow and smoked out the outer corner using the bottom two slate grey shades.
To tie my shadow in with the lip colour I added some of the Eye Colour Stick in Siberian Quartz* along my lower lash line to not only give some definition, it added that subtle hint of purple which worked well with the gold lid. The Super Volume Mascara* gave me a false lash finish without the faff and the Matte Lip Liquid in 017 Mauritius Dahlia* was the finishing touch.
