Top tips for Christmas do make-up
If you have dry or combination skin, then opt for a hydrating primer — this will leave the skin relaxed before applying make-up. The skin often becomes tighter and drier in cold weather so prepping the skin in this manner is very important.
Make sure foundation is a long-wear product so it lasts longer. A translucent powder is so important to lock the foundation in place. Make sure your foundation has no SPF in it as flash photography will cause flashback.
Make sure the blush/contour complements the make-up look you are going for
— a good tip is using your eyeshadow if you are using browns or your blush colour if you doing pink/purple/cranberries.
If you are planning to eat on your night out, a stronger lip colour may not be the best idea, but if you want to don a strong lip colour and eat, then choose a matte shade. If you find your lips are drier choose a nude that is either creamy or glossy.
If you are going to go for glitter choose your glitter based on size. If you have a bigger eye space, then you are able to facilitate a chunky style of glitter. If you have a smaller eye space, opt for a finer glitter. Always use a flat brush and make sure you place it on the lid and above the crease so that when you look straight ahead everyone can see the effort you have put in.
