    High Intensity Eye Sheen

    A long-wearing high intensity shimmer eye shadow is the key look for any type of party you’re attending. A deep shade with a glimmering texture is all you need to transform your eyes – a single sweep completely overhauls your natural look to a party look!

    This silky, light-as-air 100% pure bareMinerals powder gives you the gentlest, purest eye color with a velvety smooth finish. , avoiding any pulling or tugging of the eye area, offering stay-true color that won’t smudge, run or fade away.

    Pukka Up

    Behind every strong lip color is a long-lasting, smoothing base which helps it stay put. If the base doubles up as a fixing gloss too, you’ve got a real handbag essential!

    And that’s why we love Eve Lom’s ever-coveted Kiss Mix. Use it under lipstick as a moisturizing base, on its own for a softening pearlized sheen, or over lip-color for a slick of protective shine. Kissy kissy!

  4. First Base

    First Base

    Avoid that sliding party face with a super smooth primer, and one which encourages a flawless complexion. Our recommendation has to be the cult Hydra Veil Primer from Illamasqua. It’s huge across the UK and Europe, so keep your eye on the brand!

    This primer in particular is enriched with Microalgae and Vitamins C and B3, infusing hydration whilst calming the skin. The perfect smoothing and plumping base to help foundation stay put all night long!

    Cheeky Tint

    During the party season, it’s all about handbag sized heroes. You pop them in your bag, and you can re-apply to your hearts content, all through the night. A good one to own is a lip and cheek tiny, in a build-able rosy color.

    The RMS Lip2Cheek mineral stain provides a sheer wash of colour that can be built up for an intense makeup finish. Just dab and on blend in, whether you’ve stopped for a mirror break or you’re mid-way through conversation (or dancing!)

    Line It Up

    Line and define your eyes before you hit the party with a long-lasting waterproof liner. A waterproof option avoids smudging and smearing all over your eyelids (and beyond!), and this fine tip liner from Stila is so easy to apply.

    Stila’s Morning To Moonlight Waterproof Eyeliner Trio combines two waterproof eyeliners with a waterproof liquid eyeliner to help you achieve natural or dramatic eye makeup looks that last all day and night.

    Lighten Up

    If the whole ‘highlighting’ technique confuses you, strip it back and go simple. A sweeping of powder highlighter is easy to apply and gives striking results, so don’t get too caught up in all the cream versions.

    Just keep a highlighting palette to hand at each party, such as TheBalm’s Manizer Sisters Highlighters and lightly apply a touch to the upper cheeks and any area to replicate the light shining on the face.

    A light dusting is all that’s needed to give your face that healthy, warmer glow!
