Clean & Prep Skin

Clean and prep skin with your normal face cleanser and moisturizer. Add a primer to your routine with a decent SPF to protect the skin. We like Mac Prep & Prime Face Protect SPF50 (1). As much as we all love a pretty tan if you’re going to be partying from morning till night for more than a day you’re likely to burn without an SPF (red peely skin has never been good).  Apply a lightweight bb cream foundation and a little concealer here and there to cover up any blemishes & dark circles. Be sure to keep foundation to a minimum to let the skin breathe. Use a bronzer or blusher of your choice. To give a little glow to the skin add Trasnformulas Hydration Gold Skin Cream (10) over the bridge of the nose, inner eye area and on top of the cupids bow.

Softly Define the Eyes 

Keep eyes soft with a taupe brown like Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Groundwork (2) then add a slick of gloss for a bright eye finish just in the centre of the lid (3).  Finish the eyes with a slick of Mac Extreme Dimension Mascara (8).

Adorn One Side of Your Face 

Using Mac Duo Eyelash Glue (4) on the end of a cotton bud place little spots of glue around one side your upper cheek and above the brow bone in a festive pattern. Once the glue has slightly dried (but is still a little tacky)  place NPW Party Eye Gems (5) on top of the glue. Alternatively use Hobby Craft Gems (6) for a variety of shapes and colours. To finish the look add Face Lace Cleopatina Beauty Sparks (7) around the edges for holographic fun. You can have fun with these and go as crazy as you like. We stuck to one side of the face but you could create a mask around the eyes or even stick them on both sides of the face above each brow bone for a different look. At the end of the day just peel the gems of to re-use. Use an oil based makeup remover on a cotton pad to get rid of any eyelash glue residue.

Add a slick of Nars Istria Lip Gloss (9) to finish the look. The range of colours is fantastic and they don’t take away from the eyes as they’re sheer enough to add a sublet pop.  If you want to try something a little brighter than Istria check out Tasmania, Dolce Vita and Etheral Red : Screen Shot 2014-05-11 at 08.22.46
