Christmas Party Makeup Looks

I worked on this shoot recently for The Irish Independent using products from the Brown Thomas Beauty Hall. Here’s how to create the perfect looks for the party season.

Look 1: Metallic Smokey Eye
Roz
Foundation- Armani Maestro Compact
Eye shadow- Tom Ford Seductive Rose
Eyeliner- Mac Black Kohl Eyeliner
Mascara- Armani Eyes to Kill
Lip- Rouge D’Armani Pink 510
Apply the foundation with your fingers, this foundation is super, perfect for all skin types but if you have dry skin this is the foundation for you. For the eyes firstly line the inner line of your eye, top and bottom. Then curl your lashes using Shu lash curler. For the eye shadow use the darkest colour first, focus on the putter part of your eye, blend under your eye. If you’re not a smouldering eye kinda girl this look can work for you just don’t blend the dark shadow the whole way underneath your eye. When you have blended the dark shade use the metallic shadow where your your pupil would be if your eye was open and also in the very inner corner of your eye. Use lots of mascara, I applied three coats, when you’re applying multiple layers of mascara do not let the mascara dry fully, as this will cause the mascara to flake. I used a perfectly nude pink shade from Armani, these lipsticks are perfect as they do not bleed!

Make up:
Foundation- Mac Face and Body Foundation
Concealer- Georgio Armani Maestro Eraser Concealer
Blusher- YSL Creme De Blush
Eyeshadow- Tom Ford Ice Queen
EyeLiner- Sisley Eyeliner
Mascara- Armani Eyes to Kill
Lip- Armani Rouge Ecstasy in Amber 306
I used MAC Face & Body for Danielle’s foundation, this is one of my favourite foundations and I have been using it in my kit since I started doing makeup about 800 years ago! It’s the perfect foundation, light in texture but it is also build able. The only difference about Danielle’s eye makeup is that I used a Sisley eye liner after curling the lashes and blended it using a soft blending brush. Then applied the shadows as before. I used a nude lipstick with a warm undertone.

Look 2: Red Lip
Roz
Make up:
Foundation- Nars Radiant Cream Compact
Eyeshadow- Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate
Eye Pencil- Sisley eye pencil in Ebony
Mascara- Armani Eyes to Kill
Lip- Mac RiRi Woo
This is one of my all time favourite looks. And it is so simple to achieve! I used NARS new Radiant Cream Compact, lovely finish but has great coverage. I used a brown MAC eyeliner to line the eye just in the lash line and then blended it with a small blending brush. Then I used one of my favourite products ever made, Tom Ford’s Shade and Illuminate #1, I use this product on almost every single face that I paint. For this look I used it as an eyeshadow, it’s so simple to use, just blend it on with your fingers. Using the dark one first and then use the light one on top. This gives you beautiful sheeny lids. For the lips I used MAC’s RiRi Woo, a really beautiful red lipstick, it has a blue undertone so will make your lips look white!

Danielle
Make up:
Foundation- Nars Radiant Cream Compact
Eyeshadow- Mac Prolong Wear Paint Pots in Quite Natural, Constructivist and Dangerous Couvée
Lip- Sisley L29
The foundation was the same as Roz’s. For the eyes I used Mac Prolong Wear Paint Pots in Quite Natural, Constructivist and Dangerous Couvée. Use the darkest colour first and then layer with the lighter colours. Use the shiny one last to give your eyes that glistening finish. Apply a single layer of mascara, I used Tom Fords volume mascara. For the lips I used Sisley’s L29, I really love Sisley’s lipsticks they have the perfect texture, and will not dry your lips out but have maximum colour payoff. I always use a lip brush when applying lipstick, it’s more hygienic but you also achieve the perfect shape.

Roz
Make up:
Foundation- Armani Maestro Compact
Blush- Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate
Eyeshadow- Aerin Estee Lauder Winter Palette & Princess Palette Shu Uemura
Eyeliner- Mac Black Track
Stick on Eyeliner- Lancôme Holiday Collection, Limited Edition
Mascara- *** Mac
Lip- YSL Rouge Pro Couture Golden Lustre 108

This look is super playful, for the skin I used the Armani Maestro Conpact again, and to highlight I used Aerin by Estée Lauder Duo to highlight the cheekbones. I used Aerin Estee Lauder Winter Palette & Princess Palette to lightly shade the crease of the eye. Then I used black track gel liner from MAC to line as close to the lash line as possible, then I used the new stick on eye liner flicks from Lancôme, these are amazing! Perfect for anyone who just can’t master the gel liners. For the lips I used YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Golden Lustre 108.
