As party season is finally upon us, we’ve teamed up with MAC to bring you three stunning party looks using products from their Shiny Pretty Things Christmas collection. With makeup looks to flatter all skin tones, you’ll be spoilt for choice with looks to create through the festive period.
Classic Red Lip
A classic red lip is always our go-to statement makeup look in the run up to Christmas. Using the iconic Ruby Woo Matte Lipstick from the MAC Shiny Pretty Things Lip Kit, MAC created this stunning look on our Beauty Set Member Huma. Replicate this beautiful look by following these simple steps:
Create an eye base using MAC Pro Longweaar Paint Pot in the shade Groundwork, a warm matte brown, then blend out the edges with a fluffy brush such as the MAC 217S Blending Brush. As we want all the focus to be on the lips, we only want to add a subtle shimmer to the eyes so place a metallic cream shadow such as the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in the shade Constructivist on the centre of your lid to add dimension.
Add a flick to your simple eye look with MAC Fluidline Gel Liner in Blacktrack and create a small wing staying as close to the lash line as possible to add volume to your lashes. Complete the eye with lashings of MAC Instacurl Lash.
With a damp sponge, apply MAC Studio Fix 24-Hour Liquid Concealer underneath your eyes and on imperfections to conceal and correct. Highlight the high points of your complexion with MAC Extra Dimension Skin Finish in Whisper of Guilt for a divine glow then set everything in place with MAC Prep + Prime Fix+.
Complete your look with the most iconic red lip shade – MAC Ruby Woo.
