The festive period is the perfect time to unleash your inner glamour goddess and try out that look you’ve had your eye on for months. Whether your makeup is normally quite neutral or you love a bold lip, you can try out something new that will draw admiring glances as you let the bubbles flow. I’ve got 3 top festive party makeup ideas for you to try.
So what sort of look should you go for?
A glitter eyeliner
Glitter eyeliners are a great way to try the glitter trend without needing to learn any particular techniques or trying a bold look you’re not comfortable with. Glitter eyeliners are applied in the same way you would apply a normal black eyeliner and can be worn with or without eyeshadow depending on how dramatic you want the look to be. Urban Decay Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner is a great way to make a statement and show off your inner rock star.
If you’re bored of traditional one colour nails then ombre nails are the way to go. By simply combining three slightly different shades you can create a ombre effect that looks really professional.To create it paint on your first shade on the bottom of your nail, put the next layer in the middle and your final shade on the top. Before your nail varnish dries use a sponge and gently rub it over the polish to mix the colours together and create a ombre effect.
Try Leighton Denny Porcelain doll nail varnish (light pink), Lauren B Beauty nail polish in Beverly Hills Blush and OPI Super Cute in Pink.
Curly hair is a style that suits pretty much everyone and can be worn in a number of different ways. Whether you prefer tight curls or laid back waves, curls are so versatile and can even be worn up or down. You can use a curling tong to create your curls, and vary the intensity by wrapping your hair loosely around the barrel or tightly if you want a corkscrew curl. GHD Curl Soft Curl tong has been created exclusively to create big bouncy curls. Finish the look with Bumble and Bumble Light hold hairspray.
