It's time to start planning your party makeup now that the holidays are officially here. You want to feel and look your best for any occasion, whether it's a spectacular New Year's Eve gala or a fun office party. And how better to accomplish that than with a brand-new cosmetic appearance?


Don't panic if your present cosmetic routine is making you feel stuck. There are several simple ways to update your appearance for the upcoming party season. 


Here are a few tips:


1. Start with a good canvas: 

Setting up your skin for cosmetics application is essential. Begin by washing and moisturising your face. Next, use a primer to ensure that your makeup is long-lasting.


2. Choose the right foundation: 

You want a foundation that will give you complete coverage and an impeccable finish for party season. To ensure that your foundation lasts all night, look for one that is sweat- and water-resistant.


3. Contour your cheekbones: 

Defining your cheekbones and giving your face a more chiselled appearance is possible with contouring. Use a bronzing powder one or two shades darker than your skin tone to contour. The jawline, temples, and hollows of your cheeks should all receive the bronzer. Next, thoroughly mix with a brush.


4. Highlight your features: 

Another fantastic method for bringing out your best features and radiance is to highlight your skin. Use a highlighter that is marginally lighter than your skin tone to add highlights. Highlight your brow bones, the bridge of your nose, and the tops of your cheekbones with the highlighter.


5. Apply a bold lip color: 

What better way to stand out at a party than by wearing a striking lip colour? Pick a vibrant lip gloss or lipstick in shades like plum, fuchsia, or red.


6. Add some sparkle to your eyes: 

Use metallic or glitter eyeshadow to add some glitz to your makeup for a look fit for a party. Apply the metallic or glitter makeup to the inner corners of your eyes or to the lids.


7. Don't forget the lashes: 

Any party ensemble needs long, fluttery lashes. Coat your upper and lower lashes with two coats of your preferred mascara.


8. Set your makeup: 

Use a setting spray to set your makeup once you've finished applying it all. This will ensure that your makeup lasts the entire evening.


Here are some specific makeup looks that you can try for the party season:


The smoky eye: 

A timeless makeup style for a party that is sure to draw attention is the smoky eye. Start by filling in your crease with a dark eyeshadow to achieve a smokey eye. Blend the eyeshadow then in the direction of your brow bone. After that, evenly blend in a lighter shade of eyeshadow on your eyelid. Lastly, use a black eyeliner to delicately smudge the lines on your upper and lower lashes.


The metallic eye: 

Another popular makeup look for parties is the glittery eye. Just apply a metallic makeup on your eyelids to achieve a metallic eye. Additionally, you can apply a flash of glitter to the inner corners of your eyes or to the middle of your eyelids.


The red lip: 

A classic party makeup style that never fails to turn heads is the red lip. First, exfoliate your lips before applying a red lip. Next, use a lip liner that is either one shade darker or the same colour as your lipstick. Apply your preferred red lipstick last.
