Festive Eve are right around the corner, which means you’re probably going to be attending—or even throwing—a number of parties. This time of the year is the best time to give your makeup collection that much-needed update to ensure it isn’t lacking any party makeup essentials. There couldn’t be any better way to ring in 2021other than with new makeup, right? If you’re wondering how to get your makeup to shine at all the parties you go to, you’ve come to the right place. Here are a couple of makeup essentials you absolutely need this festive season to get through all those social events in your diary…

  1. Primer

Of course you want your party makeup to last throughout the evening, and a primer will help you with that. Besides getting your makeup a base to stick on, and last all night, it’ll also help give your skin a beautiful dewy glow, and brighten up your face.

2. A full-coverage concealer

With a good-quality, full-coverage concealer, you’ll be able to own the selfie game at parties like nobody else. Make sure you apply the product evenly over your face, though—patchy makeup is the last thing you want. To do this, slightly dampen the sponge applicator that comes with the concealer, and apply it in layers, in a triangle shape, over any dark circles or blemishes on your face.

4. Contour

A contoured look provides definition to your facial features, enhancing your nose and cheekbones. It leaves you with a sculpted look for your day ahead. For newbies to the technique and style, we recommend buying a small contour palette and ample practice beforehand.

Prep those cheekbones with the perfect shades of pink or red to up your diva quotient. A girl’s makeup kit needs the right flush of jovial colours to add the spark of a newly wed to your look. Nothing freshens up your look quite like a perfect blush with the right tint of bright shades. 

Remember the duck-face pout as you apply the blush alongside your cheekbones (suck in your cheeks to locate them). Dab a little to your temples to balance the flush in your entire face.
