For someone who wears a little to no make-up, a party make-up look is a big thing. A challenge! But I wouldn’t be myself if I wouldn’t like a little challenge every now and then, so I teamed up with Charlotte Tilbury to recreate something legendary… Something that brings us all in that perfect party-mood. Perfect for the Holidays!
And it’s not only about the way we look, it’s about the way that look makes us feel. Cause in the end, when we feel we look good, we feel good. And the ultimate feeling must be that one. Now looking good – needless to say – can be created, or maybe better said, enhanced, by wearing the right make-up. So if you are a bit like me, you wear nothing, OR, on days you have to wear a little more than that, you wear the perfect foundation, cover dark circles with the right shade of concealer, a little eye shadow, a good brow, mascara, and some lip balm on your way out. In your taxi you add a little blush – cause there’s nothing worse than applying blush indoor, in fake light – and you are ready to conquer the world!
Now I’ve got that natural make-up look down, but when it comes to party make-up, I’m a rookie. So I’m not implying I’m giving you “the perfect make-up look for the holidays”, I’m just giving you the inspiration that I was looking for. Here’s what I used…
Moisturizing is my first thing when I get out of the shower, especially when I wear a dress with bare legs, it’s a MUST. So my Charlotte Tilbury adventure started with her Giant Magic Cream. The eyes are simple because the lips make the statement, hence I used Charlotte’s Film Noir nights eyeliner, and her mascara (that one actually came from her Legendary Eyes set). The lipstick is definitely an “out of my usual zone” thing, but I love it so much. I took the inspiration from a photo I saw of Sienna Miller. I just need someone to come and fix my hair, and I’m ready to go. Oh WAIT! Let’s not forget to finish it of perfectly with the right perfume… Scent Of a Dream was just right for that!
