With all the christmas parties and christmas dinners coming up, the same old make-up look just isn’t going to cut it for us. This time of year you want to look your best and add a bit of extra sparkle! However, we dont know about you but we dont always know where to start to change up our looks! We’ve found some great makeup tutorials for midlifers to provide some inspiration and advice!
Getting a Good Base
It’s important to have a good base to start with when applying your party looks. These tips are a good place to start:
- Make sure you’re moisturised. This time of year, the cold air can leave our skin dry and cracked. Theres nothing worse than applying makeup and finding it peeling off or not sitting right. Make sure you moisturise day and night to leave your skin ready for when you need it to be!
- Perfect your base first. Don’t add any colour and until you have the foundation you are happy with!
- Find the right primer. Primer helps keep your makeup on from day to night. This is perfect if you’re going straight from work to christmas drinks, or just making sure your look stays on all night.
- Practice! Try your makeup looks before the day. Try out different things, different colours and perfect your techniques. Theres nothing worse than leaving it till the day and not having time to fix it or do it again!
