A/W Beauty Trends that are Sure to Make you Stand out this Festive Season

It’s December and the festive season has officially started. There is the office Christmas party, there is the close friends Christmas party, there is your kids school Christmas party, and of course the girls only Christmas party! I don’t know about you but my head is already spinning trying to figure out what to wear and what to slap on so that I look less like ‘I just need to go to bed’ and more ‘VaVaVoom’.

Fear not I have picked up some fab beauty ideas from Ellisons. So without anymore addo let’s add some holiday cheer with these fabulous beauty trends:

Smoky metallic eyes

I don’t wear much eye makeup everyday but I love it. A smoky eye is a classic and timeless way to emphasise the eyes and a perfect look for the evening. This season the smoky eye had a little make over by adding a metallic shimmer to eyes. You can achieve this look by combining warm and brown eyeshadows with metallic coppers and silvers. You can also add a metallic eyeliner to the waterline of your eye to create the illusion of wider eyes. Super stylish!

Red glossy lips

You know I just LOVE wearing red lips. Unlike eye makeup I do wear bright lipstick often. I love how much it instantly brightens my face and mood.

Red lips look fabulous at any time of day and never go out of fashion. I love that this season sees the come back of the 90’s-inspired glossy red lip. This look is sure to make a statement and it’s sure to make make you stand out. I suggest always pairing red lips with what I like to call ‘naked eyes’. A little bit of mascara is enough. Let the lips do all the wowing.

Going for gold

gold nails

Could there be anything more perfect than gold nails for the festive season? Of course not. Just fabulous. You can opt for going all out with gold nail polish or a little more subtle – my favourite – by adding a hint of gold glitter to your nails. Gold nails are sure to add the perfect wow factor.

That’s it. Hope you found this post inspiring and helpful. Happy partying!

Love, P
