So whip out your favourite party dress and try out one of these easy party makeup looks for holiday season 2017.

Matte lips

A matte bold lip is the easiest way to look fancy in five seconds flat. You don’t need much else, just groomed brows and lashings of mascara to bring the look together. But if you’re wearing a lipstick with warm undertones, always use concealer or a lightweight foundation to even out your complexion, as the warmer undertones can bring out any redness.

Pretty in pink

You truly can’t go wrong with a rosy pink lip! Kylie’s pink lipstick looked stunning matched with a pink blush and matte skin. To ensure your lip colour lasts all evening, always fill in your lips with a lip liner first. This gives the lipstick something to grab onto and makes it more long-lasting.

Glitter lips

Is there anything more festive than glitter lips? To get the look, apply a lipstick in any colour – red is my favourite – and then press makeup-grade glitter onto your lips with a lip brush. For a glossy glitter look, apply a slick of clear lip gloss on top.

Brushed up

Brushed up brows are always trending. They’re super flattering, maximise volume and define your natural arch. To get the look, simply use a translucent or coloured brow gel to brush up your brows and set them in place.

Copper smokey eye

Copper tones always look great in party season. A copper smokey eye works well with any eye colour, but it really enhances blue and hazel eyes. Try lining your waterline with a eyeliner in a black or espresso colour for a smouldering stare.

If you thought the contouring trend was coming to an end, you’d be dead wrong. Contouring is still going strong – and party season is the perfect time to try the trend on for yourself. If you’re new to the contour craze, start with a powder contour product – which is easier to use than a cream.

All nudes

There’s no need to get complicated with your party makeup look. Stick to all nude shades like Selena and you’ll still look fabulous! This look works best when worn with lashings of volumising mascara or false eyelashes.

So lit

Get lit like Hailey by making highlighting your priority. Use an illuminating primer and mix a few drops of a liquid highlighter with your foundation. For some extra sheen, use a foundation brush to place liquid highlighter on top of your cheekbones and down the centre of your face.
