Got a Christmas shindig to shimmy to but barely any time to beautify? We have a makeup look that you can achieve while you’re sitting at your desk if you’re that pushed. Nothing beats the soft glam of a gold smoky eye, and if you pair it with a red lip, you’ll be set to slay at any seasonal party. We asked Nyla Hélène from @kulchicbeauty to show you how it’s done…
Smoke it out
The perfect smoky eye is all about a deep and smouldering crease. Achieve this depth by buffing the central shade from the GOSH 9 Shades To Rock Down Under Palette through your crease, then layer with the top middle shade to darken. Finish your crease by adding a black eyeshadow from the Revolution X Tammi Tropical Paradise Palette to the outer corner.
Go for gold
There’s a gorgeous golden shimmer shade in the GOSH palette that we used to add some Christmas sparkle – totes apprope for party season. Use a flat brush to pack the shadow onto your lid, focusing on the inner two-thirds of the eye. For maximum colour payoff and to help this last all night long, top it off with a dusting of B. Cassie Lomas Glitter Pigment in Supermodel Sheen.
Finish off the eyes
Make your peepers pop with a flick of eyeliner and a lick of mascara. You can obvs add lashes if you’re going for maximum impact… who isn’t at Christmas?
Lady in red
Line and fill in your lips with B. Lip Liner in Scarlet. This will make the colour more vibrant and help your lippy to last the night. Sweep B. Matte Lipstick in Raucous over the top and you’re good to go!
