The festive season is now upon us and with it comes endless invitations to great parties and festive get togethers. With this in mind, we’ve put together a few tips to achieve a party-perfect makeup look for your upcoming events.

For day time events, keep makeup fresh and natural with an emphasis on a perfected base. Choose neutral or soft shades or just a subtle splash of colour. If your outfit permits, you could also opt for a bright statement lip, keeping eyes and cheeks more subtle. When the sun begins to set, you have permission to go for a more dramatic, colour rich look. But the rule of thumb is to choose either the eyes or the lips as the focus.

To ensure long wear always prime the face, eye lids and lip primers create a perfect canvas for makeup to adhere to for longer wear. Also consider layering product for extra longevity. For the cheeks layer powder blush over a cheek crème, for the lips fill with a lip pencil before applying lip colour and for the eyes layer powder shadow over a crèmes eye shadow for extra long wear.

Some of the key trends to note this season that could inspire your party makeup looks are barely there bases with the lightest application of foundation, glowing skin with pearlised highlights, soft smoky eyes worked in all the way up to the inner brow bone and bright matte lips in colour bursts of pinks and oranges.
