The season for socialising is upon us, and the last thing you need is a make-up meltdown. Elena Costello of the Brown Thomas Beauty Style Team shares her top tips to keep your look on lockdown whether you’re at a cocktail party, Christmas dinner, or hitting the dance floor.
1. START WITH SKIN
Start by exfoliating with Dior Hydra Life Exfoliating Powder and hydrating with La Mer Soft Cream. Investing in good skincare is the secret to great makeup.
2. PREP & PRIME
Laura Mercier Radiance Primer is a must if you want your make-up to last through the night. It’s silicone free, rich in antioxidants and leaves the most gorgeous pearly glow.
3. FULL COVERAGE
When staying power is paramount, choose NARS Luminous Weightless Foundation for a lightweight base that packs a full coverage punch and looks radiant and dewy.
4. BE BOLD
For a look that lingers all night, don’t be afraid to go bold with Charlotte Tilbury’s La Dolce Vita eyeshadow quad. It’s so wearable and the gold glitter pigment is literally to die for! Pair with Armani Lip Maestro in 400 Red which has a super comfortable velvet matte finish.
5. GO THE DISTANCE
If time is of the essence, the newly launched Huda Beauty Lashes paired with Lancôme’s Grandiose Liner will give you a full-on glam in minutes.
6. SEAL THE DEAL
A quick spritz of MAC Fix+ spray will not only give you a gorgeous dewy glow, but ensure your makeup won’t budge all night.
7. FINISH WITH FRAGRANCE
For the final touch, Tom Ford’s Jasmin Rouge is nice this time of year and has unbelievable staying power!
