Blogmas Day 21: Glam Party Makeup Look

party-makeup-lookI went missing during the weekend and I am deeply sorry about that! Felt like I neglected #Blogmas, but real life obligations kicked  in disguise of a Christmas shopping list that had to be done over the weekend. But I am back with a long overdue post- gold and glam party makeup look for you folks.

party-makeup-party-makeup-look-This is the craziest that I will go with my makeup look this party season. I always stick to the “bold lips-bare eyes” as a rule of thumb. But since it is a special occasion, you can spot the subtle gold and shimmery eye makeup here. -party-makeup-look-Base
L’Oreal True Match Foundation mixed with The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter is the easiest step to get a silky, glowy and radiant looking face. For concealing, I started with Bobbi Brown Corrector and followed it with tiny bit of Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer to bring some highlight to the under eye area.

As a base colour, I used a mix of Malloy (white) and Lombardi (beige) on the The balm – Meet Matt(e) Nude palette. By focusing on the inner corner of the eyes and around the eyes, I used Mac pigment in Vanilla. I applied this pigment wet; just a drop of water and tiny bit of the pigment does the trick. Wet pigment on the eyes looks more shiny and opaque. To give little bit of colour, I used The Body Shop Colour Crush Eye Shadow in Gorgeous Gold on the outer corner of the eyes. Lastly, used a black eyeliner to give some dimension to the eyes by only focusing on the outer corners and smudged it a little, and topped it with the L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara. Special occasion also calls for defined eyebrows. For that, I used the Essence Eyebrow Kit.

Used The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder as the contouring colour and topped it with a hint of Mac Peaches blush. As a highlighter I used The balm- Mary-Lou Manizer on top of the cheeks and tiny bit on the nose.

The star of the show is the Bourjois Velvet Rouge Edition in Grand Cru. A red matte lipstick that is incredibly rich and long-lasting- a safe bet for a party makeup look.

Can’t believe there is only few days left till Christmas, meaning that is almost the end of Blogmas. Hope you enjoyed the Blogmas here as much as I did.

What kind of makup look do you usually go for during the party season?
