Tips & Tricks for the perfect party look
On the last night of the year I like to really go to town with a nice party, a shiny outfit (with matching lingerie set of course) and last but not least a great make-up look! I say glitter, smoky eyes and of course full, red lips that are totally ‘Xmas-proof’. Normally I advise emphasising either your eyes or your lips, but you can definitely make an exception for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. So don’t hold back and experiment with glitters, eyeliners and fake lashes. This year, anything goes!
This is how to create beautiful full red lips
As a real lipstick addict, I always wear red lipstick for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. For me, a party make-up look is not complete without gorgeous red lips. That’s why I’m going to explain the best way to apply (red) lipstick step by step.
Outline your lips using a lip pencil. Make sure your lip pencil is sharp, so you get nice neat lines. It’s best if the lip liner matches your lipstick as closely as possible. If you buy both products from the same beauty brand, you’ll often find colours that go together. An extra tip: If you have thin lips, it’s best to go for one shade darker than your lipstick colour. Applying lip liner around your mouth helps plump your lips.
Next, fill in your whole lip with the lip liner to create a good base. A lip liner prevents ‘bleeding’ (this means that the lipstick smudges outside your lip lines, which happens quite easily with red) and also sets the colour for longer.
Now apply the lipstick to your lips (you can use a lip brush if you like). Simple as that!
In order to really finish your lips, you can use a tiny bit of concealer to outline them. Spread it out with a finger as carefully as you can and you’ll find you have beautifully defined red lips! So embrace those beautiful red lips and shine bright like a red diamond!
In other words, plenty of inspiration to go and try out this look, girls! If you have any questions, please post a comment under this blog post.
