Just the Lip
The instant pick-me-up of a dramatic lip especially comes in handy when you’re running around prepping for all those fabulous parties! Finish it off with a sweep of mascara and you’re good to go!
A touch of sparkle can go a long way! Brighten up your look with a hint of shimmer in the inner corners of your eyes that will totally camouflage the fact that you were up all night wrapping gifts or partying!
Lashings Of Lashes
Layer up your mascara for a dramatic party-season eye look, offset by perfectly polished skin. Twiggy-inspired but with a modern bend—apply mascara to the upper and lower lash lines and finish with a flick of liquid liner. When it comes to mascara more is more! The perfect mascara for the job?
Lit-from-within skin is the perfect party-season accessory. You probably don’t need the crown as well, but don’t let us stand in your way! Brush along the top of cheekbones and dust down the bridge of the nose for flawless radiance.
Major Cat Eye

This look is focused on the smudged lower lash kohl liner. Balance with grey shadow on the lid and finish with a flawless complexion and nude lip.
