Most of us like to do a different look to our usual daytime make up when going to a party. It is also a fabulous opportunity to have a little fun, experiment and try something new. Here are some on trend ideas to “change it up” for the Festive Season. Find out which ones will best suit your clothing personality.
Go a little darker – and make your lips the star of the show. Whether matte, glossy or stained, dark lips are a key trend this winter. Use rich concentrated colour and keep the rest of your face natural to ensure your lips are the focal point. Dark perfect pouting lips are a great look for anyone with Romantic or Dramatic in their clothing personality.
For dreamy or strikingly dark lips try: Autumn: L653 Chestnut Shimmer and L506 Bronze. Summer: L718 Berry. Winter: L673 burgundy Wine Shimmer and L712 Dramatic Fuchsia.

Get “reddy” to party – with a classic red lipstick. Always a great way to look party ready and add some bold impact. Pop one in your handbag if you are going straight from the office for instant glamour. This is a fabulous look for all clothing personalities (just make sure it is your best red).
For party “reddy” lipsticks try: Autumn: L303 Matte Geranium, Spring: L303 Matte Geranium and L55 Bright Red, Summer: L302 Matte Raspberry and L28 Cherry, Winter: L302 Matte Raspberry and L27 Carmine.
Create a sultry mood – with a dishevelled smoky eye. There is a grungy edge to this catwalk look giving it a twist for this season. No need for a perfect finish, smudging is key. Great for anyone with some Natural or Dramatic in their clothing personality.
For sultry smoky eyes try eyeshadows: Autumn: ES20 Dark Brown and ES115 Mid Brown, Spring: ES115 Mid Brown and ES126 Coffee Shimmer, Summer: ES113 Flat Mid Grey, Winter: ES110 Dark Grey and ES113 Flat Mid Grey.
Add a blue hue – for a pop of party colour. Coat your upper and lower lash lines with intense electric blues for a striking evening look. Not sure about the blue? Try your favourite green or add some metallic sheen using silver or gold. Great for a splash of fun for Gamines or adding some drama for Dramatics.
For a pop of party colour try our Retractable Eye Pencils: Autumn: Rich Navy, Gold Shimmer and Penny, Spring: Rich Navy, Gold Shimmer, Penny and Blue Ice, Summer: Rich Navy, Winter Rich Navy and Blue Ice.
