As the Christmas and New Year celebrations approach, it’s time to get your glam on. So, this week we would share our top tips for perfect party makeup.
Top Tips for Perfect Party Makeup:
A quick and easy way to dial-up the glam is to add depth to your eyes. You can achieve this either by darkening the crease with an additional eyeshadow or smoking out the lash line with some eyeliner which gives the illusion of fuller lashes.
Hot Tip: take care not to encircle the entire eye as it will close the eye off and often make it look smaller than it is.
A sure-fire way to ensure your make up looks fabulously festive is to add some shimmer to the inner corner of the eye. The Jane Iredale Naturally Glam Eyeshadow Palette has some lovely shades to help you achieve perfect party makeup.
Hot Tip: When adding shimmer to the eyes always take care not to apply shimmer through the crease, as it will accentuate fine lines.
During the festive season, we tend to opt for a fuller face coverage than our everyday wear. But if you do, always be sure to give colour and dimension back to the face! If you don’t add a little bit of blush and/or bronzer, you will be left looking a bit flat and washed out in your party photos.
Hoping for a kiss under the mistletoe? Nothing says pucker-up quite like a bold red lip. But, always be sure to use a lip liner first! This makes the world of difference in how long your special lip colour will last and also how tidy it will look. Red is very unforgiving and mistakes show up easily.
Hot Tip: If you do make a mistake on the edge, take a small detail brush and some concealer and go around your lips to smooth things back over.
Making a night of it:
Nobody wants to spend all night in the loos reapplying when you should be on the dancefloor. To make sure your perfect party makeup goes the distance always begin with a primer. The Smooth Affair for oily skin by Jane Iredale is designed to keep oils and sweat at bay all day long. It’s a perfect addition to your makeup bag over the warmer summer months.
A long-wear foundation like Beyond Matte Liquid Foundation from Jane Iredale is designed to give you a flawless finish for up to twelve hours.
Keep your handbag stocked with blotting paper to remove breakthrough oils without fading foundation. Alternatively, a matte finish powder is perfect for touching and ensuring you are photo-ready all night long.
Hot Tip: Keep a setting spray in the fridge to cool off during the long hot days. Pop it in your evening bag just before you head out. It will help to keep your perfect party makeup in top-notch condition all evening.
