Christmas party make-up ideas 2017: The grown-up's guide to glam for your work and office dos - Mirror Online

Christmas is fast approaching, so it’s time for metallics, shimmer, glitter and sparkle. Here’s our simple guide to do-able, wearable, gorgeous party make-up… Beauty fashion makeup.

Party season is upon us, which can only mean one thing in beauty world - bling! Everywhere we look, makeup counters are dripping with metallic, shimmer and sparkle.

These products always look fabulous when you swipe them on the back of your hand but sometimes it can be a struggle to make them work on your face too.

Let's be honest, that glittery unicorn-meets-mermaid palette might be OK on a 16 year old blogger, but it could make you feel pretty daft.

To solve the problem, we’ve come up with these clever hacks that let you add a touch of party glitz and glamour into your make-up while still looking and feeling like a grown up.

Party problem: 'I'd never dare wear a metallic lip'

Don’t take the trend too literally. There’s the over-the-top catwalk version – where lips are so pigmented they look like they’ve been sprayed on by a robot in a car factory. Or you can try a metallic lip texture that’s much softer, prettier and more wearable, like this…

Believe it or not, our model’s lovely lips come direct from the supermarket! Metallic Liquid Lipstick in Sleeping Beauty, £4, is part of the new George at Asda Boutique range, and we’re impressed by how pretty it looks on real life lips.

While you’re in party mode, how about a metallic lip and tips combo? Rather than being too matchy-matchy, go for a polish that picks up the golden undertones of a metallic lipstick. Our model is wearing Barry M Liquid Chrome Nail Paint in Bright Lights, £3.99.

This season’s jewelled shades can seem very loud and a bit intimidating. The solution is to brave just a teensy flash of colour on your eyes, then add in a bold statement shade on nails – the safest spot for wearing those glorious jewel tones.

Everyone suits a classic black flick, and it’s a simple switch-up to add jewelled glitter liner over the top.

"If you can apply eyeliner, you can do this. In fact it’s easier because the sparkle hides any wobbles in a black liner," says our shoot make-up artist Anna Gibson.

Sally Hansen Salon Chrome Nail Kits, £30, take a bit of work: apply two layers of nail polish, buff in a chrome powder, add a chrome effect top coat and then finish with a clear top coat too. Luckily the final effect is worth the effort, and we love the dramatic Peacock shade our model is wearing. (Or try bright chrome-finish stick-ons, like Elegant Touch Nocturnal Dreams Nails in Midnight Blues, £8.95.)

Party problem: 'I'm worried gold will make me look old'

No! The latest textures look flatteringly dewy, rather than enhancing eyelid creases. However, never take bold gold up to your brows. Also, a gilded eyelid plus a dark, contoured crease line can look harsh, so don’t blend a ton of black eyeshadow into your socket line.

You can always use a darker shade on your lower lash line if you want a bit more definition. And adding a lighter gold shade into the inner corners of your eyes instantly makes eyes sparkle.

To define the lower lashline, swap jet-black eyeshadow for a soft smoky shade shot through with gold – we used Illamasqua powder eyeshadow in Invoke, £17.
