Party Make Up

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.

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.”

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.”

‘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.

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.

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.
