As party season rolls around, I find it the perfect excuse to get a little more wild with my look…
For me getting ready for a night out always starts with a little extra attention on my hair in the shower. I don’t have the budget to head over to the salon for a nice wash and blow dry, so I like to bring the salon home! Kerastase are a brand loved by hairdressers and novices alike, and combining their Bain Satin 1 Irisome shampoo and Lait Vital Irisome conditioner makes the perfect special treat for hair. Rich and concentrated, this duo will nourish locks that need looking after without weighing them down. Expect bounce, softness and shine…what else could you ask for to start your perfect party look?
But the volume doesn’t have to stop with the hair! If you’re going all out in the lashes department, nothing adds the wow factor quite like a good pair of falsies. False lashes don’t have to look fake to add a bit of drama. We’re currently in love with Ardell’s Natural Style Demi Wispie Lashes. They’re great for a length and volume boost whilst still mimicking your natural lash shape. They also make a great base to have a little more fun with your eye look. It’s about about coloured mascara this season, and Ciate LashLights offer an incredible amount of shades to choose from. Just add a coat to the tips of your lashes for an accent of colour, or apply from root to tip to if you’re feeling more adventurous. Of course no eye look is complete without a finished brow, and we’re currently loving the Eylure Brow Crayon in Mid Brown to do the job. With this soft pencil you can skip the sharpener and simply twist to to get more product; that’s a winner in our books!
If beauty in 2014 had to be summed up in one trend, it would be contouring. Endless tutorials have popped up across the internet with beauty mavens showcasing their very best makeup skills, but really it can be narrowed down to two key products; bronzer and highlighter. The Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Duo includes both in one palette, making it a great of contouring kit. The two shades compliment each other perfectly and have neutral undertones to making them easily suited to a whole array of skin tones. Both have a slight shimmer which illuminate the skin; the key with contouring is not to overdo it, but accentuate the natural structure of your face by creating light and shadow which is exactly what this duo does.
With the emphasis on the eyes, keep the lips simple by keeping to a universally flattering pink. Lola Intense Color Lipstick in Strawberry Fields is a great choice with it’s slight iridescent finish which is the perfect way to take pink from day to night. Carrying on with all things shimmery, add a touch of glamour to your talons with a glittery nail varnish. The shade Toggle To The Top from Essie is all deep opaque red which is perfect for this season, but also has an elegant shimmery dimension to it to add that special finishing touch for this party season.
