Remember that scene from Bridget Jones Diary where our lovely Bridget is on a table top, karaoking in the most melodious tone while all her colleagues glare at her in awe?
While we do love our Bridget, we strongly recommend not being that girl at your Christmas party this year. Whether you're going to a formal seven-course meal, or a bowling session with your office mates, we have you covered with this beauty guide for the upcoming Christmas party. All you need to do now is find that Mary Poppins' bag that will fit all the below in... we're still trying to find one.
- Always carry a highlighter of some sort in your clutch. What these bad boys do is they highlight the high points of your face - cheekbones, jawline, centre of your nose - without making the look too harsh. They are subtle and don't look too shimmery (like the stockings hanging off the fireplace). These highlighters will bounce light off from under the eye area and stop you from looking like a Kardashian sister.
- Stick to making the eyes the most emotive feature on your face - almost like the statement look of your face. Load up on the mascara and opt for false lashes, if you want to go the extra mile.
- Wear a nude or pinkish lippy if you're planning on having a big night at the pub. This will make you not want to retouch your lippy every half hour.
- Want to wear some colour on your face? Blend a beautiful, creamy cheek tint on the high points of your cheek. Pick a bright pink or a deep coral if you have a duskier complexion.
