Holiday parties are great; we get to socialize, have fun, and spend quality time with our dearest people. But, before you even get to that party you have to prepare. Getting ready for the party doesn’t only include choosing what clothes, shoes, and accessories to wear. You also have to decide how to do your makeup and to make sure your skin is flawless and smooth.
This isn’t as easy as it seems. To make sure you show up at a holiday party with flawless skin and makeup, this article includes ten easy tips you can follow:
Add some color to your cheeks
Good beauty looks always implies adding some color to your cheeks. To do this, you should press pink cream blush on the apples of cheeks. Why? It’s because pink blush adds a little bit of liveliness to your makeup. Without it, your cheeks would look lifeless. When applying blush make sure you don’t use too much of it. The idea behind blush is to make cheeks lively and define your face.
Don’t forget your cleavage
Holiday parties are excellent opportunities for you to wear dresses with plunging necklines. Pairing a plunging neckline dress with elegant accessories and makeup makes you look like a movie star. When you’re applying makeup, you shouldn’t skip your cleavage to make your look even better. So, what to do about the cleavage? It’s easy; you should just dust a shimmering powder on collarbones and tops of your breasts to accentuate your curves.
Address skin problems
Due to environmental influences, stress, and many other factors we face various skin problems. Sometimes, as much as we tried to prevent them, they still show up. But, when you have a party or more of them to attend, skin problems like uneven tone, rough texture, or dark spots can make you feel insecure. All these problems take away your natural radiance. To make sure you look your best and feel like a princess, you should have regular skincare regimen (it’s highly important). Also, addressing skin problems as soon as you notice them can help you get rid of them faster than you think. For example, to address dark spots, uneven texture, loss of radiance, etc. you can use one of many skin brighteners on the market. Best skin brighteners are made of active ingredients whose effectiveness in skincare was documented in scientific researches.
Smokey eye effect made simple
Smokey eyes make you look sensual, but it’s not easy to accomplish this effect. You usually need quality shadow palette to create this smoldering look and longer and thicker eyelashes. Luckily, there’s a way you can create smokey eye effect in less than a minute, and you don’t even need eye shadow palette for it. How? Just drag a kohl liner along the upper lash line and use a smudging brush to buff color up towards the crease. Smudge liner along your bottom lashes and finish with mascara. That’s it.
Glam it up with burgundy lips
Every makeup look is incomplete without lipstick. To look elegant at holiday parties, it’s always good to opt for red lipstick shades or burgundy. Lipsticks with burgundy shade make you look smoldering, sensual, and they will fit perfectly with that wine you’re going to sip on. Ideally, to make your lips bigger you should apply burgundy lip liner followed by lipstick.
As mentioned above, makeup look is incomplete without lipstick. But, for luscious lips, you have to make sure your lips are in “perfect condition”. The skin on your lips is sensitive and prone to damage. That’s why we have chapped lips or lips that peel etc. You can solve this problem with sugar and honey scrub to get a perfect pout for holiday parties.
Make your skin glow
Products for skin brighteners make your skin radiant and smooth, but when you’re applying makeup, you can add an extra glow to your skin starting with the liquid foundation. Then, apply a little bit of highlighter on brow bones, the center of the forehead, cheekbones, a tip of your nose, Cupid’s bow and chin. After that, use a fluffy powder brush to blend it into luminosity.
Bold lips + subtle eyes
Even when getting ready for holiday parties, you should still obey the golden rule of beauty and makeup: bold lips require subtle eye makeup and vice versa. Therefore, if you want to make a strong impact with bold lipstick color, you should keep your eye makeup discrete.
Facial masks for rested skin
Your makeup will look flawless only when your skin is well-rested. The fastest way to do it is to include facial masks to your skincare routine. They are gentle, made to address specific problems or skin needs, and easy to use. Apply these masks at least twice a week for smooth and nourished facial skin.
Shocking pink lipstick when in the hurry
Are you already late to your party and didn’t even finish applying makeup? No problem. Just pare down your face and eyes with the neutral look and focus on your lips. Opt for a shocking pink lipstick that fits into every beauty look and outfit choice. Plus, this color suits all complexions. It’s a perfect way to get ready for your party in a short period.
