Themes: Opt for a super simple, you should were a charcoal strapless gown. Follow the glamorous winter fashion trends and play with high-impact makeup for evening but only ever focus on a strong lip OR a strong eye application, but never both at once!

Shades: We can all agree that red is a gorgeous color for a bridesmaid dress (kudos to the bride for an impressive color motif). It is dramatic and eye-catching—but for some, it can also be a difficult color to pull off. Red translates to power and confidence, which can be
intimidating to wear. Definitely not for shy wallflowers, as it requires its wearer to be bold and beautiful (again, confidence is key). Needless to say, your makeup and hair should perfectly complement your dress.


Not many of us realize that wearing red requires a new set of makeup rules. You see, red can change the tone of our skin, making it appear pallid or washed out. The color’s shade and undertone can give darker skin a grayish cast.

The solution to this is simple: Add a healthy dose of color to your cheeks and lips, or create a contrast by defining your eyes. Now, if you’re not quite sure whether you’ve applied too much or too little makeup, simply wear your red dress. Right away, you’ll see how your dress changes your skin tone, and you can adjust your makeup accordingly.

Before you decide on your makeup look, remember the tried-and-tested makeup rule: Focus on one feature at a time. This will help you avoid creating a look that’s clownish or overdone. As obvious as this tip is, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to go overboard with makeup when you’re wearing red.

2. Makeup for Christmas /New Year Parties

Planning your New Year’s Eve party look or Christmas party Eve look? Get some hair and make-up inspiration from our top 100 party-perfect looks. Have you decided how you’re going to look all ‘Glam’ this Christmas, or are you still confused about how to do your makeup?

Thick Brows: Enhance your brows and make them look bold. You can use the Colossal Kajal to thicken your brows and arch them at the same time. If your brows are slightly brown in color, you can use the Vivid and Smooth Eye Liner in Bordeaux Pearl to enhance them.

Colored Eye Liner: Embrace the Christmas spirit and line your lash line with the HyperGlossy Runway Pop Liquid Liner in Khaki Green, since green is one of the main Christmas colors. If you love sporting bold looks, then this is the perfect eye makeup idea, we say.

Dramatic Lashes: You can never go wrong with long, gorgeous lashes. Hence, spruce up your lashes by using Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara on your upper lashes. It’s always better to wear it only on your upper lashes, since if sometimes, your eyes can end up looking smaller if you apply it on your lower lashes.

Eye Shadow: For the eye shadow, shades of brown are a good idea. You can use the Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Quad in Copper Brown on your lids. Gold eye shadow is also a great idea. You can use the Eye Studio Color Tattoo in Bold Gold on your lids. Another option is to wear pink eye shadow. You can use shades from the Diamond Glow Eye Shadow in Wine Pink.

Lip Color: Bright red lips, neon pink lips or electric orange lips are sure to look ‘Glam’. The party is your chance to put your boldest and brightest look forward. You can use the Superstay Long Lasting Lipstick in Non-Stop Red or Infinitely Fuschia or the Bold Matte in any of the neon shades.

Lip Gloss: You can also wear glossy lips. Pick your glossy shade from the Color Sensational High Shine Gloss range.

Cat Eyes: Using the HyperSharp Liner, you can create a cat eye effect on your upper lash line.

Smoky eyes: Use the Diamond Glow Eye Shadow Quad in Grey Brown and the Colossal Kajal to create this effect.
