Shimmery Smoky Eye

Sparkles may be a party season staple, but going all out with a glittery eye can feel a little too fancy dress for our liking. Keep things on the right side of cool by adding a hint of shimmer to your smoky eye – for a surprisingly sophisticated take, start by applying the richly-pigmented Powder Eye Shadow, £17, across the lid and into the brow bone before adding a sweep of Pure Pigment, £17.50, and lashings of black mascara.

 

Glossy Eye

The glossy eye may seem high fashion but is surprisingly easy to recreate. Apply with your fingers in the same way you would a creamy eye shadow, smoothing all across the lids. Try a coloured gloss like Liquid Lip Lure in Bloom, £20, or apply a clear one over your favourite shadow. For contrast, pair a glossy eye with a matte lip – this will keep the look modern.

 

Modern Contour

Radiant, subtly contoured skin is perennially cool and our go-to party look. The golden rules? Remember the easiest and most flattering way to sculpt and shape the face is by adding light. Try adding a touch of Beyond Powder in OMG, £34, on the high points of the cheekbones and down the bridge of the nose; or for a stronger look, sweep the fool-proof Gel Sculpt, £25, under the hollow of your cheekbones and blend for an instantly sculpted look.

 

High Shine Lip

Shiny, plumped-up pouts are big beauty news and with Illamasqua’s formulations promising a stick-free, moisturising and high-shine finish, lip gloss is more wearable than ever. Remember that gloss doesn’t always have to be subtle to be cool – use one over a bright lipstick to boost its vibrancy or try using over a matte red lip for a sultry, full-on look.
