Whether you’ve gone for a statement dress for your Christmas party, or you just prefer more natural makeup – this is the perfect look for you.

Simply ask your makeup artist to create a bronzed, glowing base to ensure you’re glowing in those Christmas lights, a soft, natural smokey eye with just a pop of shimmery eyeshadow and some natural false lashes. Brushed up brows will give you that natural look  you’re going for and they’re so on trend this season. Finally, ask your artist to create a natural, nude lip with just a hint of gloss to really finish off your natural glam makeup look and you’ll be ready to party!

Go all-out striking this Christmas party season with a killer red lip, brushed up editorial-inspired brows and gorgeous bronzed glowing skin. 

For this look, your makeup artist should focus on your skin, using a number of different products to ensure your skin is glowing before they put any makeup on your face, as well as buffing and hydrating your lips to ensure a flawless blank canvas for that killer red lip.

Next, your makeup artist will apply a sheer, light-medium coverage foundation to give you that gorgeous glowing skin that this look relies on. To really give you that glow-factor, your makeup artist will also use a number of different highlighters, including liquid and powder, concentrating on the highest points of your face. 

After that, they’ll concentrate on your brows – using all the best brow products in their kit to ensure they achieve that bold, brushed up look. 

Finally, it’ll be time for them to turn their brushes to the star of the show – your lips. They’ll line your lips with the bold colour of your choice, before going in with their brushes and lipstick to really perfect your pout and ensure it’s perfectly even.

You’ll be left looking and feeling totally glam and ready to party the night away.

If you really want to steal the show this season, then this gorgeous Christmas party makeup is perfect for you. Featuring flawless skin, sheer lips a gorgeous smokey eye, this look is sure to be a knockout.

Due to the dark eyeshadows being used, your makeup artist will probably start with your eyeshadow, creating a gorgeous smokey eye using neutral colours, before finishing it off with some gold glitter eyeshadow to really give it that festive feel.  After subtly lining your lid with some black eyeliner, they’ll apply some volumising false lashes to really give this look the wow factor.

Next, they’ll use a medium-full coverage foundation to create a truly flawless base, before applying bronzer and blusher to add a bit of colour to your complexion. Next, they’ll apply highlighter to all the high points of your face to ensure you’re glowing in those Christmas lights. 

After perfecting your base, they’ll fill in your brows, brushing them up before going in with an eyebrow pencil to give you that natural, yet defined look. 

Finally, they’ll apply a nude lip liner to your lips before finishing it off with a pop of gloss to add another dimension to this look and ensure you’re Christmas party ready. 

So whether you’re heading to your work Christmas party, or just going out with the girls – these are the most gorgeous makeup looks to try out this festive season.
