Let’s get the party started!

Christmas Candy-Ness

Since Christmas is all about cakes and candies, we recommend a makeup look that gives sweet, cheery, and cute vibes. Light up the Christmas party with a snowy pop of white eyeliner and Christmassy red lips. Here’s how you can achieve it easily!

After you have cleansed and moisturized your skin, DON’T forget to use a makeup primer. After all, you got to make that look last through the Christmas shenanigans.

Opt for a medium to high coverage foundation to hide imperfections and get the perfect base. Next, for a brighter and more awake look, apply a brightening concealer (in a shade lighter than your skin tone) on the under-eye area and high points of your face including the T-Zone, cheekbones, and nose bridge. Since it’s winter, just apply a light layer of 24 Hrs Wear Weightless Powder Foundation to set the base. Complete the base makeup by sweeping some warm-toned blush on the apples of the cheeks and highlighting the high points of your face with Sexy Twosome Highlighter.

Let’s quickly do the eyes and lips now. Start off by giving a nice definition to your face by sculpting your brows to perfection. Now close the eyes and gently pull the lid outwards to line your eyes. Taking our All Rounder Pencil in Innocent White, draw short strokes on the lash line and draw a medium flick on the outer corner directed toward the eyebrow tip. Join the tip with the mid-point of the lash line to complete the wing. Go in with some mascara, and your eyes are done.

Now for Christmas lips, how about a touch of glitter? Coat your lips with opaque coats of Starry Flip Lipcolor in Hot as Hell and get a red-hot sparkling pout!

Silver is the Night

For a second, we imagined you dancing at the club with this look on and we really believe you would steal the show. So here’s an ultra-dramatic silver smokey cat eye makeup look that looks SHARP. SNATCHED. STUNNING. 

To stop the chilly winters from reducing your makeup into a patchy mess, prime your face with our Perfect Selfie Primer Oil after the CTM routine. Create a flawless base using a medium to high coverage foundation.

How about going for the trending ‘lifted look’ to make the look sultrier and hotter? The trick is to blend products upwards/outwards. Apply your lighter concealer on the inner and outer corners of the eye and the high points of your face and blend it upwards. For a foxier look, apply the contouring shade from Flawless Touch Contour and Highlight Palette on the sides of your nose, hollows of cheeks, and jawline, and again blend the product upwards. Now instead of sweeping your blush on the apples of your cheeks, blend it onto the higher part of your cheekbones and toward the edge of your eyebrow for a lifted illusion. Dust highlighter on your cheekbones, the tip of the nose, and below the eyebrow tail.

Feeling nervous about the eye makeup? Don’t fret as we tell you how to do it easily. First, prime and set your eyelids. To draw the dramatic wing at the end, place a small strip of tape from the outer corner of your lash line directed towards your temple region. Take a black eyeshadow and start blending it along the edge of the tape with the Emphaseyes Eye Blending Brush. Go over the strokes repeatedly with the same brush to thicken the flick. For the pop of silver on eyelids, run your I-Glide Eye Pencil in the shade Sterling Silver over the inner and middle parts of the lids. To ensure that there are no harsh edges between the silver and black colors, go over the meeting point of the two colors with a black eyeshadow and give a light blend to merge them.

To give more definition to your eyes, line your upper lash line with All Matte Eyeliner. Do line your inner corner too with the eyeliner. Line your lower waterline and lash line using a smudge-proof kajal and create those pointy wings on the lower lash line with the matte eyeliner. Take out the tape to see the complete smokey cat eye look.

Go over your lips with a nude lip color. Apply false eyelashes and don’t forget to shape your eyebrows.

Hey, hey, before we sign off, do you want a pro tip to make your highlighter pop? Spritz some setting spray on your face and then reapply your highlighter on the same spots you had applied it earlier. That blinding glow is what will get the party started!

Do rehearse these party makeup looks once before pulling them off finally on D-Day. Get ready to rock the party season!
