NEW HOLLYWOOD

Dewy skin, minimal eyes and a high-impact red glossy lipstick create the perfect modern take on the classic Hollywood red-lips look. Focus your attention on a flawless base. Brushes are key: apply both primer and foundation with a brush, then add strobe cream high on your cheekbones and eyelids, and a touch on your Cupid’s bow. Finish with a contour stick, drawing down the sides of your nose, under your jaw and in the hollows of your cheeks.

OMBRE LIPS

Easy to master, this lip trend will have everyone asking how to do it. You just need two lip stains. Start by drawing the darker one with a lip brush from the outer corner a quarter of the way into the lip. Fill in the middle section with the lighter shade, then blend the two shades with the brush for a blurred effect. Apply a clear gloss if you want a high-shine finish.

METALLIC MANI

Gold, silver and bronze polishes are Christmas classics that can be updated for 2016 with an easy-to-do geometric pattern. Don’t worry if you don’t have the steadiest hand – just section off the design you want to create with a little masking tape, then use a cocktail stick dipped in nail polish to create perfect dots. Choose a metallic-toned lipstick to tie the look together – and you’re good to go!

So, which look will you be trying this party season?
