I think I promised this blog last year but didn’t ever get round to writing it, so with the Christmas party season just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to share my party make-up and product rundown with you.
Rather than creating this look on myself, I decided to enlist the help of my eldest daughter, who being 13 years old, jumped at the chance to be my party makeup model!
I let her choose the colours we used, and as I could have guessed, she went for the Urban Decay Naked Cherry palette. I built the rest of the look around that.
First up, as every girl knows, a good makeup look always starts with a primer. This will ensure the perfect base for your makeup and give it the staying power you need when you’re partying the night away. For this look I’ve used Too Faced Hangover Primer. I also mixed in a small amount of NARS Copacabana Illuminator, just to give a bit of shimmer to the skin. Well it is party makeup after all!
As you already know, for the eyes I’ve used Urban Decay’s Naked Cherry palette. I love the colours in this. I used a mix of the following colours, both on the lid and below the eye too – Caution, Feelz, Juicy, Bing and Devilish. To get the shimmer on the lids I used Mac Pigment in ‘Kitschmas’. I then smudged some matt black eyeshadow under the eyes to give it a bit more of a smokey look.
The eyeliner I used was Mac Fluidline in ‘Blacktrack’ on the top, and on the waterline I used Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner.
For the lashes, I used Mac’s In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara, and finished off with some Ardell Baby Demi strip lashes. Eyebrows were filled in using Mac’s Fluidline Brow Gelcreme in ‘True Brunette’.
Once I’d finished the eyes, I moved on to foundation, which was Mac’s Full Coverage Foundation, in colour NC15. This was then set using Mac’s Mineralize Skin Finish in ‘Light Plus’.
I then added Mac bronzing powder to give a slightly contoured look, and finished off with some blush (Mac ‘Sincere’), and highlighter (Mac Minerlize Skinfinish in ‘Soft and Gentle’).
Finally, for the lips I used Mac ‘Whirl’ lip pencil, filled in with Mac ‘Lovelorn and some clear lip gloss over the top.
The whole look was then set using Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray.
And there you have it….. a complete rundown of my party makeup look. I hope you have lots of fun recreating this as well as experimenting with your own colours and products!
