Perfect party peepers

Perfect party peepers

Make sure your eyes are dressed to impress this Christmas with a selection of shimmer shadows, liners and false lashes.

Here’s a run down of my party must-haves:

The shadows
MAC Metal-X cream shadow
– A powdery and vibrantly pigmented cream with a liquid finish to make your eyes go pop. Can also be used on cheeks and décolletage for extra impact.

Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV – 16 eyeshadows ranging from glam neutrals to dramatic shades in matte and shimmer finishes. Open the drawer and watch the how-to video for application tips and techniques.

Givenchy L’Ombre Noir – Create the ultimae smoky eye. My advice, apply this shade dry for an effective day look and use wet for a dramatic night look. When wet you can also use it as a precision eyeliner, to shape the lashes or to coat and colour the tips of lashes.

Bobbi Brown Metallic eyeshadow – If you’re looking for high-shimmer and a high-pigmented formula then look no further. This sleek, flip-top compact contains the ultimate shimmer eyeshadow with a striking metallic finish.

GuerlainEcrin 6 couleurs eye shadow – A wardrobe of 6 eyeshadows in matte, iridescent or satiny finishes. You can shade, line and add luminosity with just one handy compact,

The eyeliners
Dior Precision Eyeliner - This automatic, total-control pen eyeliner allows you to create an even line in just one stroke.

Bobbi Brown Long wear Gel Eyeliner- This award-winning liner gives you the look of liquid liner with the ease & feel of a gel formula. The long-wearing, water-resistant colour glides on and let’s you get it just right before it dries – then stays without a smear or crease.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero-smudge liquid liner – With 15-hours staying power this smudge proof liquid liner gives you a perfect line without budging.

Benefit Magic Ink eyeliner - This jet black liquid eyeliner is pure drama in a bottle. The fine tip allows you to create a perfectly precise line and the intense black shapes and defines the eyes with a graphic outline.

The lashes
For  the perfect finishing touches add some lashes. My favourites have to be the following by Illamasqua.

Opulence – These scream party, party, party.

Grandeur – the one’s that will make you stand out from the crowd.

Weimer – Looks beautiful when teamed with Pure Pigment in Berber. Also draws out blue/green eyes

False lashes – purple – Just add these lashes for after dark drama.

Top tip: To ensure your shadows stay on for longer apply a primer to the lids.
