The end of year office party is a great way to celebrate the successes of the team and remind everyone what lessons were learned.
And that extends to style and beauty lessons too. How many events did you attend hoping to master the sparkle to go with that bubbly in hand and your favourite statement piece hanging from your earlobes?
Don’t worry, you’re going to nail this look this time and impress your co-workers and more importantly yourself with your new skills. Here’s how...
- Clarins Everlasting foundation – I used Hazelnut to match my shade
- Fix Make Up 4 colour eye palette – I chose oud 4 for a smoky effect
- Iridescent shadow - Silver pink was perfectly suited to the palette of my party wardrobe
- Lip oil
- Be Long Mascara – Only the most intense black has an effect on my eye, so this colour was perfect
- Perfect eyes and brows palette
STEP 1: START WITH THE BASICS
Prep your skin with a foundation that will last all day so your makeup doesn’t slide of in an avalanche of glitter
STEP 2: DEFINE THOSE BROWS
It’s important to frame your face. Brush your brow hairs, tweeze the wild ones and apply powder to fill in any gaps as you shape.
STEP 3: ADD SHIMMER
Apply shimmer wherever the light hits your face – tip of nose, brow bone and your cheekbone. Don’t be shy and just make sure you blend into your skin so you really only see the effect depending on which way the light hits your face.
STEP 4: ENHANCE YOUR PEEPERS
If you find applying falsies as difficult as I do, mascara is your best friend, especially one that’s lengthening and volumising.
*Disclaimer – the top lashes are individual lash extensions.
STEP 5: SET THE SCENE
To hold all your makeup, spritz your skin a makeup spray
