Christmas and New Year Party Makeup

If you’re looking for some inspirational makeup idea’s on how to look good and feel great for this years proms, balls and  special parties take a peek at the latest makeup trends for 2014.

Preparation is the secret for a great, lasting makeup…

The best way to give your face an even glow, minimize the appearance of fine lines and pores, and to ensure your makeup lasts until you tumble into bed, is the time taken preparing the face before the concealer and foundation. Invest in a good silicone based primer and you can feel confident your makeup will look fabulous throughout the evening.

Whilst for many of us a party makeup look is a mix of golden eye shadow coupled with a vibrant, bright red lipstick, however if you want to be adventurous and to try something a little bit different the makeup look this season is primarily ‘Goth Glamour,’ it seems that ‘Twilight’ is influencing this years party circuitSun kissed suntans never go out of fashion. However if you have a pale skin, you can go almost vampish, this requires a pale foundation at least a shade lighter than you would normally wear. This is a makeup look, which lends itself to featuring strong eye makeup, dark, heavy eyeliner and demands attention on the dance floor.

Avoid bold pink and bright cheek colour and go for a blush shade that is nude or lightly flushed with just enough pigment to give the cheeks a splash of colour.

Matt white and glittered white eyeshadow, sparkling silver blends with mixed shades of grey and bold red eye shadow certainly bring a new and different look for the eyes. Try wearing a waterproof, long lasting eyeshadow, it doesn’t smudge and ‘Smashbox Limitless’ 15 hour cream eyeshadow comes highly recommended for its staying power.If you really want to be daring then black glitter and vibrant pink glittered eyes and matching nails will certainly get you noticed at every party.Lips shades vary from barely there nude and pink lips to dark lip colours, gorgeous bold reds and deep burgundy are popular this winter.Remember that even though its winter the sun can still burn the skin, so makeup sure that when choosing your foundation, lipsticks or lip-gloss go for a product with SPF15 to protect you from the suns harmful rays.
