How to Do Classic Christmas Party Makeup
For your super-ladylike and glam party appearance, you need to have the following makeup products and tools at hand:
• Primer, foundation and concealer
• Bronzer, blush
• Eyebrow kit
• Eyeshadows in white, coral, bluish purple, brick-red, dark purple, neon coral, brown, black and a glittery hue
• Black eyeliner and white eye pencil
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• Red lipstick
• Makeup brushes
The steps of creating classic Christmas party makeup are quite simple, presented as follows:
Step 1: Create the perfect porcelain skin by washing your face, applying toner, then using the makeup primer, foundation and some loose powder for a fab matte finish. Sculpt your face with bronzer and blush and you have them most enviable facial skin ever!
Step 2: Make sure you contour your eyebrows, making them bushier and longer, in case you have thin and short brows inborn.
Step 3: Start your eye makeup with a white watercolor eyeshadow applied to the inner corner of the eye. Put a coral watercolor shade next to this (from Makeup Atelier Paris), making your way almost till the end of your eye, not touching the tail.
Step 4: Above the coral color, next to the white, apply some loose pigment in bluish purple tone (Ipanema star powder from Parisax), reaching the middle of your lid. Continue your way with a brick red tone (from Sleek Ultra Mattes Darks). As you reach the tail of your lid, apply a dark purple tone and blend it to the crease (from the same palette). Blend this purple well with a soft brown color and then with a neon coral one (Ariel eyeshadow from the Sleek Lagoon Palette).
Step 5: Define the inner part of your crease with a brown eyeshadow applied with the help of a liner brush. With a matte black eyeshadow highlight the outer V of your eye. Use a white loose pigment with a gold reflex right under the arch of brow for a brighter look.
Step 6: Emphasize your lower lid with a dark purple eyeshadow (from the Sleek Ultra Mattes Darks palette). Blend the color with a brick red tone.
Step 7: Apply white eye pencil to your waterline. Create dramatic eyes with the help of black eyeliner.
Step 8: Apply black mascara and then use false eyelashes for the ultimate festive touch!
Step 9: Apply a true red lipstick. To add a modern twist to your red lips, create an ombre lip effect by slightly contouring your lips with a black pencil and then blending it to the red color.
Your sizzling classic Christmas party makeup look is ready to capture the hearts around! It’s high time to put on your high heels and chic garments and get on the dance floor!
