Quick tips for a natural Christmas make-up look

Do you have an office social or after-work Christmas party to attend? Our natural Christmas party make-up tips for Xmas 2021 make it easy to quickly transform your look from desk demure to dance floor ready.

We know it’s not always easy getting ready for a night out at your desk where you’re short on space and tools.

With this in mind, we asked our resident make-up artist to share quick and easy make-up tips that can transform your look using just a few favourite products from our natural skin care and long-lasting mineral make-up collections.

 

How to prime your skin for party make-up

This step is not to be missed and will help your post-work party make-up to sit better on the skin and last longer.

Ideally, make-up should be applied to clean skin. It also a good idea to create a primer and apply this to the skin before you apply any make-up.

The products we recommend for priming your skin are our Hydrate & Renew Serum with our Cell Enrich Facial Oil. These contain actives that firm and replenish the skin and quickly absorb to create a silky-smooth base to apply mineral make-up to.

Use the pipette to dispense a few drops onto the back of your hand, then mix the two products together and tap the resulting primer into the skin.

Bold coloured lipsticks are great for Christmas parties and your lip colour is less likely to smudge and bleed if you prime your lips with a vitamin-rich lip conditioner.

Whilst you wait for your skin to absorb your primer, smooth on our nourishing Enrich & Enhance Lip Primer which enhances the natural hues of your lipstick and contains Carnauba and Beeswax to anchor colour onto the lips.

4 natural make-up tips for Christmas parties

One you’ve primed your skin, you can perfect party eye make-up look using just 4 natural make-up products: eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick and mascara.

  1. Define with eyeliner

Eyeliner is one of our favourite Christmas make-up products and can be used to create endless party make-up styles. Our eyeliner application guide can help you to find the best eyeliner style for your eye shape and, so that you can create your eyeliner look with confidence, our High Definition Eyeliner won’t drag or irritate sensitive eyes.

The best tip we can give for using eyeliner pencil to create a Christmas party look is to take your time, use a sharp eye pencil for accuracy and apply it slowly, taking care around the delicate eye rim. If you smudge a little, don’t panic! This will help to create a classic smoky eye look that adds a touch of glamour to any Christmas party outfit.

 

  1. Get your sparkle on

Bold eyeshadows are back for Christmas 2021 so have fun with your make-up and embrace bright colours and glittery shadows that add sparkle and elegance to your look.

Glitter can have a tendency to get everywhere so help your eyeshadow to stay in place by priming your eyelids with a sweep of pressed mineral powder. Try to choose eyeshadows that use mineral or biodegradable glitter.

 

  1. Lengthen your lashes

Mascara adds length and volume to your look and, if you have blue or green eyes, switching to a brown mascara will give your eyes extra sparkle ahead of your Christmas party.

Darker eye colours look great with black mascara and sweeping the precision brush that comes with our Volumising Mascara from the roots to tips in a zig-zag motion will help you to create excellent natural eyelash definition, without irritating sensitive eyes.

Green People Mascara

If you have sensitive eyes, the best way to use mascara for a Christmas party is to avoid the roots. By concentrating on coating the lashes, you’ll avoid agitating the delicate lash line. Find more quick and easy tips like this in our guide to applying mascara to sensitive eyes.

 

  1. Perfect your lipstick

Our natural lipsticks features a matte finish and adds a creamy lip look that complements sparkly and silky dresses. We love it for its universally flattering colour and its ability to help thin lips look fuller.

For a full lip look, first smooth out any fine lines with the Age Defy+ Line Eraser Serum then use a small lip brush and apply your lipstick to the outer lip. Gently blend the colour towards the inner lip and you’ll create the illusion of a full lip.
