PARTY HAIR?

THE LOOK OF LURVE
February 2, 2018

We've all had makeup nightmares. Remember those days of liberal maybelline shimmer stick application or so much rimmel eyeliner and touch éclat you look like a Danny Devito penguin impersonator?


Christmas does tend to be the season for makeup experimentation, and that's cool, but you gotta' know what you're doing. Thankfully we have our trusty pros on hand to let us know when it's time to put the neon and glitter down. So we thought we would share the love and insider tips to ensure we're all looking on point for this jolly party season.


If you want to go for a full on pro-fesh experience then our makeup artists Kirsty and Sasha are brush ready to hit you up with a tonne of gorgeous glowingness (new word there). But, if you just want to create something quickly at home, why not give this eye look a try with our easy how to? Whilst we have used quite warm and coppery tones for this makeup how to, there is no reason why you can't use the same application technique but with cooler greys and browns. You will just need 3 shades varying from mid to dark.





Step 1 : Apply an illuminating base across the lid right up to your eyebrow. This will serve to highlight your eyebrow arches and create a more almond shape to your eye area.




Step 2: Apply the lightest shadow first, sweeping it wide from the corner of you eye socket following the socket line as a guide. Imagine there is a line from the outer corner of your eye to the end point of your eyebrow. Stop the shadow half way down this line and then drag the pigment down to the outer corner of your eye.




Step 3: Apply the mid shade following the same line. However you don't want your application to be as wide so use a finer brush to ensure the lighter shadow can still be seen either side. Blend.




Step 4: Time to define baby. Take the darkest colour and imagine you are drawing into your eye socket. You are trying to create a feline, almond shape so drag the shade to that halfway point between outer eye corner and the end of your eyebrow. Blend like your life depends on it keeping the arch of your eye lid and inner corners, clean and light. We are creating a look of depth and shape here, NOT 2 rounds with Mike Tyson.




Step 5: Ta daaaaaaaa. Admire your beauty. Then if you want to bling it up add your favourite loose glitter (gold works best with these colours), fluttery lashes and a red lip.
