Hellooo and welcome to blogmas day 18? (I know I have missed a couple of days here and there, so sorry about that!!). Today I thought we would do a little makeup tutorial that isn’t really a makeup tutorial! There’s always that one point during the festive period where we have somewhere to be pretty quick after work, be that a work night out, a Christmas party or just a catch up with some friends. Now unless you have a really cool boss, chances are you can’t wear full glam makeup while at work or school, if you are still in school. Sooo here is how to transform your normal everyday makeup into glam party makeup in just three steps! (Also please excuse my hair in these photos, I had my hair in a bun all day and had just taken it out and brushed it so it’s mega messy, sorry about that!). Anyway enjoy!!!
So everybody has a different style of makeup that they wear everyday but for this I am going for the idea that “everyday makeup” is minimal eyeshadow with very little eyeliner and a natural or no lipstick. If your everyday makeup is anything different you could always alter it to suit you.
First up lipstick. Switching your everyday lipstick for something a bit bolder can really transform your look. The obvious choice here is a red lipstick because, you know, it’s Christmas. But there are just so many possibilities, you can go for a dark rosy pink or even a deep purple (that’s my personal fave). So have a bit of fun, party season is the perfect time to try out new lipstick colours so why not try something you wouldn’t normally wear?
The second way to transform your day makeup is with all the sparkles! You can go all out and just put glitter everywhere, to be honest people probably wouldn’t even bat an eyelid if you turned up drenched in the stuff but let’s keep it simple for now. Perhaps a sparkly eyeliner or a glittery lipgloss, or just all the highlighter imaginable. You just can’t have Christmas without glitter.
Finally, false lashes. I know a lot of people aren’t really comfortable with applying false lashes but they can make any look more dramatic in a matter of seconds! If you don’t have a lot of experience wearing falsies or if you are a complete beginner I would always recommend starting with three quarter length lashes, that way you don’t have to deal with trimming the lashes and to be quite honest, they are just so much easier to apply. YAY FOR THREE QUARTER LENGTH LASHES!!!!!
So that was my three ways to transform your everyday makeup to party ready makeup. I hope you enjoyed this post, thank you very much for reading and I will see you all tomorrow for a new blog post, bye x
