Christmas/New year Party Makeup

It’s that time of the year again!!! Decorations sorted, presents sorted, the perfect dress sorted, killer heels sorted… 
Time to glam up with the perfect makeup and stand out within the crowd.
Don’t be scared to go glam with the makeup, most black women are so scared of colour but our skin looks amazing with colours!!!

Top tips!
Mix a little shimmer with your moisturiser or spray some shimmer dust all over your body. Gold shimmer looks beautiful on black skin. You can use Next Gold shimmer spray £6.00, don’t go overboard with this though.
Whatever eye makeup you chose to wear, pat on some glitter in the middle of the lid and inner corners of your
eyes. This will make your eyes pop! Barry M £4.59 does some amazing glitter and dazzle dust in different colours.
GO RED! You can never go wrong with a red lippy. There are loads of shades to choose from. If you love bright reds, use an orange-red lipstick like Sleek’s True colour lipstick in OMG £4.00 or you can tone it down with Mac’s lipstick in Ruby Woo £13.50. Another Red I just discovered and love is by Smooch Cosmetics Crimson Fire £7.50. I love this shade!!
Have some blot papers on hand to tone down shiny nose during your party. I love using Mac’s blot film £10.50. 
And that’s it. Its been a long year, time to let your hair down and enjoy the season!

Do have a Merry Christmas and a spectacular New Year!
