Adult Festive Looks To Make You Shine At Your Staff Party
Posted by Rachael Funnell in Makeup
Christmas is here and with it come all the social events, t’is officially the season to dress-up, look great and feel fabulous. With so many parties on the horizon, now is the time to nail a jaw-dropping festive makeup look. At My Beauty Matches we’ve put together our best beauty tips and favourite online beauty products that we think will inspire you this festive season.
I love this understated look, using subtle hints of glitter and festive reds is great way to work a more sophisticated version of Christmas makeup. To recreate the eye makeup in this photo, you need a selection of complimentary eye shadows which range from light and glittery to dark and smoldering. A great product on the market is this Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette 096 Pied-de-poule from £37.80. This palette contains 5 gorgeous complimentary shades with ranging textures including matte, satiny, iridescent and ultra-shimmery. Like a couture wardrobe for the eyes, this eye shadow gives free rein to your creativity to achieve your best Christmas look. If you'd like to rock the smokey eye effect start with a light powder under the brow and gradually work down to the deepest shade on the outside edge of the eyelids, be sure to blend for a sultry finish.
There are so many great hairstyles to try at Christmas, but we love this classic, loose up-do. You can check out our best tips for perfecting winter-proof sophisticated up-dos here, but for maintaining a style that will last all night we recommend using Big Sexy Hair Big Spritz And Stay Volumizing Intense Hold Hairspray from £8.50. This lightweight formula dries quickly and locks hair in place, leaving you free to dance as energetically as you please.
Through all our favourite Christmas looks, there’s one common denominator. Strong, deep, red lips. It brings a tasteful splash of festive colour to this subtle style and a favourite of ours is this Pure Colour Sculpting Lipstick in Envious from Estee Lauder £25. The ultra creamy texture of this lipstick means it glides on for a perfect, even colour. If you’d like to read our tried & tested best lip colour products review, you can check it out here.
No Christmas look is complete without glitter, so what better way to work it into your outfit than with a sparkling nail polish. Proving that glitter doesn’t just belong at kids parties is this gorgeous Belgrave Square sparkling topcoat from the Nails Inc. collection £15. This rose gold polish will add a sophisticated hint of sparkle to any base coat colour you fancy, but also works as a gorgeous, warm and glittering stand alone nail polish.
Fancy adding in a splash of sparkle to your eye makeup? This Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Glamrock from Urban Decay £13 is the perfect choice for adding hints of sparkle to any makeup look. With an extremely quick and easy application and so many different colours to choose from, you can be Christmas party ready in minutes. You can shop the sparkling Urban Decay eye liner range here.
