The little black dress is a Christmas party staple.
So you need the perfect makeup look to accompany it. Whatever your go-to party look is, whether you keep it simple and let your outfit do the talking or you like to make the ultimate beauty statement, we’ve got just the look to match every little black dress. Your go-to LBD makes for the perfect Christmas ‘do dress, a no fuss situation and you know you’ll look good. You’ve got your outfit covered, we’ve sorted your makeup.
If you’re not a fan of ‘out-there’ beauty looks, then this is the one for you. A simple, yet effective makeup look to add some neutral sparkle to your festive look. The Bare with Flare shadow duo fulfils a subtle hint of shimmer along with the Beauty Boss Lip Gloss, not too much, not too little, but enough to get you a kiss under some mistletoe.
If you’re someone who does their full face up every day of the week and you’re wanting something big to blow everyone’s minds on your Christmas night out, then we’ve got just the selection of products for you. Contour to your heart’s extent with SOSU’s Contour On The Go stick and add all the layers of highlighter with the On the Glow highlighter from Lord & Berry (see what we did there?). The perfect look for all your all-out occasions.
Eye makeup focus
Not too hot on the lipstick but a queen with your eyeshadow? Well, well, well, this look is just for you. The classic Naked Reloaded eyeshadow palette enables you to work your magic with it’s incredible array of colours, then to add something something Christmassy, top your look off with Stila’s Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow form something sparkly. Line away with the Perversion liner and finish your look with Eylure Definition Lashes.
Are you the total opposite to the above? If you’d rather that your lips walked the walk while your eyes just talked the talk, then a good, bold red lip is what you need. Buxom’s lipstick and liner duo will have heads turning, while Urban Decay’s Naked Petite adds a hint of shading to your lids without being too overpowering, accompanied by a more natural lash from Oh My Lash.
Sparkle all around
If your makeup looks portray all of your Christmas excitement, then we’ve got something sparkly for you. Gold finger tips and glistening metal foil finished eyelids, accompanied by a radiant highlighter and of course, shimmering glossy lips. If that doesn’t sound festive to you, then we don’t know what does!
