Christmas Eve Makeup Recommendations

This is definitely very last minute but better late than never right?

I've done two looks that you can wear for your Christmas Eve night out and I promise that it's gonna be very simple to do! And quick too so for those of you who are going straight from work, you can get glammed up in no time.

The first smokey eyes look is for all you ladies who will be going clubbing and the second will be a glittery eyes look for those who will be dining out with friends or family. I'll most probably be wearing the second tomorrow night as I'll be at The Apartment in The Curve :)

What will you be doing on Christmas Eve?

Read on for the quickie tutorial.

Smokey Eyes for Clubbing

After applying an eye primer (L'Oreal De Crease), fill up the lid and lower lashline with black eyeliner pencil to create a base. Using a sponge tip applicator, smoothen the edges. With an eyeshadow brush, sweep some light satin brown eyeshadow (MAC's Era) over the black base and blend. To smoke out even more, add some black eyeshadow to the outer corner of the eyes and blend into the crease. Apply highlight (MAC's Ricepaper) and finish off with a black eyeliner (Blacktrack Fluidline) and mascara or false lashes.

Glittery Eyes for Dining

Prep the lids (L'Oreal De Crease) as usual then apply a black base as above. Using an eyeshadow brush, pat on dark red glitter (MAC's Reflects Blackened Red) over the black base. Right above the crease and on the lower lash line, apply a lighter eyeshadow of the same shade (NYX Ultra Mania in Penny). Blend well. Add some golden glitter (KATE Gel Liner in GD-1) to upper lash line and also the inner corner of the eyes. Define the eyes with a thin line of black eyeliner (Blacktrack Fluidline) and apply it to the lower waterline as well. Finish off with mascara.
