Sure, there are thousands upon thousands of #makeupidea posts on Instagram and Pinterest. The problem? Finding inspiration that actually inspires you, and fits with your timeframe. Luckily, we’ve saved you the work of searching for hours on end. From the signature red lip, glittery lids and festive smoky eyes, here are the looks that have earned our likes for party season.
Pretty in pink
Take a classic smoky eye, give it a heavy dose of pink sparkle, and you’ve got one seriously pretty party look. If this seems a little too daunting, try just pressing in a hint of glitter to the centre of the lids, plus add layers of mascara, for a softer version. Start with a cream shadow (for the glitter to stick to) then try OPV Beauty’s Pressed Glitter in Hot Miss, £8, for a similar effect.
