Party Make Up

BLURRED LINES
A smokey eye is a winter classic. Gel eyeshadows can also be used for a more dramatic effect on the socket and double as an eyeliner. Nadine Bryan, founder of the independent cosmetics label B:Undeniable, says: “Apply a nude base followed by a bold pigment in the crease and the outer corner (like a V shape) of the eye. Add a shimmery eyeshadow to the centre of the eye and continue to blend the outer edges to smooth out harsh lines.” Finish your look with a slick of black kohl.

RED HOT
A bold red lip is one of the quickest ways to transition from desk job to Christmas party chic. Bobbi Brown pro artist, Amy Conway, says: “Apply the colour straight from the bullet for a bold lip, or press the colour into the lip with your finger for a softer look.”

WINTER BERRIES
Matte berry lips were all over the catwalk this season. Bobbi Brown’s Amy Conway, says: “This is a perfect shade to wear with a big knit jumper for a chic winter look. Pair a matte berry lip with glowing skin for a real editorial look.”

PRECIOUS METALS
‘Tis the season to experiment with glitter and metallics. Add shimmer to a classic smokey eye with a sweep of silvery sparkle (for a softer look). Or go full festive with a bold gold eyeshadow or high-pigment foil eyeshadow for a great party look.

PRIME TIME
Look Fabulous Forever, the make- up line developed for older women, has opened a pop-up shop in Wimbledon’s Centre Court Shopping Centre. We love the best-selling Never Feather Lip Prime, which seals the edge of the lip colour and guards against unsightly colour bleed.

READ MY LIPS
Prepping your pout is crucial during the winter. Use a gentle sugar scrub and apply layers of balm during the eight hours before applying a bold lip so colour isn’t dry and flaky.
