3 all-night make-up looks for the festive season

We show you how to create three foolproof looks which will keep you going from party, to after-party, to after the after-party!

Hair & Beauty

The countdown to Christmas has begun, so now’s the time to break out of your usual make-up routine and try out this year’s festive looks. Whether your bestie is hosting a party or you’re heading out to a Christmas ball, when the tunes are good and the vibes are right you'll need make-up that lasts.

Luckily for you, we've found three stunning all-nighter looks that are so good it's worth giving all of them a whirl.

Golden Goddess - festive make-up

Golden Goddess

Nude glamour is all about finding your perfect neutral tones and pairing them with a beautiful dewy base. Put in some groundwork by prepping the skin with primer - you'll want to prevent shine from turning up in the early hours. Opt for a full brow and warm shimmery eyeshadow across your lids and then finish with a generous slick of highshine lip gloss. Voila!

Blush Queen - festive make-up

Blush Queen

This sexy, blush-tone look is a go-to for party season. When you’re not feeling the OTT festive glitter, opt for vibrant eyes to add to the instant party vibes. Use an iridescent eyeshadow to hike up the glam factor and remember to blend and build around the eye area so it becomes your wow feature.

Set off your foundation with a light reflecting setting powder and apply a lash plumping mascara – even to falsies – to bring another level of fierce to this look.

Smokey Eye - festive make-up

Smokey-Eye Starlet

Make your eyes pop with this classic 70s look. Prime your lids first with a small amount of concealer to help prevent smudging. Next, line your upper and lower lash lines with a kohl pencil beforebuffing out until smokey.

After a light application of mascara, apply lash glue to falsies, wait for it to go tacky and then gently place on your lids. Keep your lips simple with a tinted balm - less is definitely more with this bold eye look.
