Festive season is officially here and if you’re a beauty fanatic like me, must-have makeup looks will be at the top of your party planning list. I’ve teamed up with those brilliant beauty experts at Studio 10, bringing you their party makeup and skincare tips.
An often busy and sometimes stressful time for many, there’s lots of tricks to give you a little lift and enjoy Christmas and New Year complete with seasonal sparkle. Not forgetting, the importance of perfecting a party-ready holiday pout.
A big fan of the fantastic Studio 10 products available, I spoke to Grace Fodor, who is the founder of this cult makeup brand. Grace offers her best beauty tips for seeing you through the festive season whilst simultaneously showcasing that all-important glow…
1: Hide fatigue and give yourself an instant eye-lift by tapping a serum into the eye area – store it in the fridge for an extra soothing rejuvenating treat! Look for ingredients which support hydration, like collagen.
TRY: Miracle Effect Priming Serum, £68
2: ‘Strobing’ is the easiest way to look brighter in seconds. Highlight the areas that naturally catch the light, the fullest part of the cheek, the centre of the nose, brow-bone, and the Cupid’s bow.
TRY: Youth Lift Glow-Plexion, £26
3: Take your eyes from day to night and look wide-awake in minutes with a fuss-free smoky eye. Apply our soft creamy eyeliner to upper lash line, blend and smudge out into the outer corner in a triangle shape.
Pat a shimmering bronze shadow over it for suits-all sophistication.
TRY: Visible Lift I-Definer, £32
5: For signs of a late night, a nude, not white, eye pencil is best. Run along the inner eye for an instantly wide awake appearance.
TRY: I-Lift Longwear Liner, £22
6: Suffering with reddened skin because of the weather? Skip blusher and instead contour with a matte, natural brown tone to put more depth back into the skin.
TRY: Visible Lift Face Definer, £30
7: Plump up your pout with gloss over pencil for a long-lasting, defined look that will take you from office to party in an instant.
TRY: Lip Perfecting Plumping Gloss, £20
