L’ORÉAL PARIS MAKE-UP DIRECTOR FOR AUSTRALIA, NONI SMITH, SHARES HER TIPS TO HELP YOU GLAM-UP YOUR PARTY LOOK
TIP To help it stay put, try a dab of moisturiser underneath. 1 To transform mundane make-up into a NYE look, try amping up your smoky eye with a touch of glitter on the lid or across the cheekbone. You can keep it chic by choosing a colour that is the same shade as your eye make-up, or be bold and make it pop with a bright contrasting tone.
2 The ultimate look for the party season this year is colour. Colour on the eyes in a 1970s or 1980s vibe is a big trend right now and is perfect for the summer months. Try jewel-toned hues in blue, green, purple, plum and raspberry. Finish the eyes with lashings of mascara on the top and bottom lashes. TIP Try L’oréal Paris False Lash Superstar X Fiber Mascara for luxurious long lashes. $28.95. 3 My celebrity beauty crush right now is Thylane Blondeau who, at 16 years old, is the embodiment of the classic Parisian beauty. Her stunning natural beauty combined with her quintessential French style makes her one to watch. 4 My favourite look at the moment is a statement lip. I love a deep raspberry red hue 5 For lasting make-up use a primer that suits your skin type and in the hotter months, opt for a foundation with a matte finish. Finish your look with a make-up setting spray. TIP A setting spray is also handy to refresh your make-up during the evening when it starts to look a bit tired! TIP Achieve a natural glowing complexion with these tanning drops. Blend 3-4 drops of tanning liquid with your moisturiser for a natural, sun-kissed glow. Le Tan Liquid Sun Tanning Drops 12.5ml, $19.99.
