Christmas party make-up tips

Christmas is the ideal time to shine, say cosmetics company Fashion Fair. Eyelids sparkle with shimmery eye shadows, cheeks glow with illuminating bronzers and lips pop with striking red lipsticks.
Katrese Kirk, Fashion Fair Cosmetics national training manager and make-up artist extraordinaire provides her top tips to give your make-up added sparkle during the party season.

Scrub and glow:
Make-up will look cakey if applied on top of dry, flaky skin which is more prevalent in the winter months. So if you want your complexion to glow with health and radiance at those festive parties, use a good quality scrub such as the Fashion Fair Refining Face and Body Scrub (£23/81g) regularly to keep your skin smooth and help your foundation glide on perfectly.

Bright eyes

If all the late nights and festivities are taking their toll on your peepers, after completing your holiday eye look, pat the Fashion Fair Pure Gold Eye Shadow (£11.50/2.5g) in the inner corner of the eye. This will help them appear brighter, wider and ensure they sparkle with every blink. Stockist:

Lip bling:

Want your lips to pop? A gloss is the perfect product. Either wear alone or for added impact, apply your favourite red lipstick, then add a slick of Fashion Fair Canary Diamond Lip Teaser (£15/2.2g) in the centre for added shine. Stockist:

Concealer = long-lasting colour

Concealer isn’t just for covering up blemishes. It’s great for helping your lippy last the distance too. Simply apply the Fashion Fair Covertone Concealer (£16/10.7g) over the lips, first as a basecoat and to neutralize any discoloration in the lips, then pop on your favourite lipstick to help it endure the seasonal champagne sipping and kissing under the mistletoe. Stockist:

Red Alert

Red is the perfect Christmas shade. Fashion Fair have ravishing reds for every skin tone including Radiant Red, Rage and Seduction (£14/4g) which are all ideal for the holiday season. If you don’t want your red to bleed, trace your lips using the Fashion Fair Covertone.  Stockist:

Top tip
Not only will Concealer (RRP £16/10.7g) define the shape of your lips, it will also help keep that fiery shade firmly in place.
