Perfect Party Makeup With BlanxUK

It's Christmas party season so I thought I would do a post on the perfect party makeup, this post is in collaboration with BlanxUK on how to achieve a beautiful makeup look for any events you have! Blanx have teamed up with makeup artist Cassie Lomas to create a number of youtube videos to help achieve whiter teeth. There's videos on how to change your makeup from night to day, enhance the whiteness in your teeth and the most recent, party season beauty tips!

I thought I would share a few of the products I would use to create my makeup look great when I'm going out. For foundation Nars Sheer Glow is the perfect choice, it makes skin look healthy and contains no SPF so is perfect if there will be flash photography, you could also mix it with Nars Illuminator to get an even more radiant complexion which looks lovely in photographs. You can also highlight with the Nars Illuminator, as Cassie says in the video, applying it to the forehead and cheekbones gives your skin a very glowy and radiant look. Soleil Tan de Chanel is my favourite bronzer, it is very natural looking on the skin and can be used either before or after foundation, I love using the mousse formula rather than powder bronzers as I find it works a lot better on my slightly dryer skin. When I apply it before foundation, I use the Sephora Mineral Powder Brush and apply it to areas that the sun would usually hit, to get natural, bronzed skin. For brows, Anastasia Dipbrow is perfect for getting statement brows that still look natural, I absolutely love this product as I find it so difficult to find brow shades to match my fair hair! For eyes, the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette is a great choice for party eyes, particularly the bottom left shade, which is perfect! This palette is lovely for a smokey eyes and it worked amazingly at making my bluey/green eyes stand out! When I'm going out anywhere I love to do winged eyeliner, my favourite gel eyeliner is the Bobbi Brown Gel Liner. After mascara, the perfect lashes are the Ardell Demi Wispies, they are my favourite lashes and are perfect when going out, they are the perfect mix or volume and length. Finally, for lips, the YSL Fuchsia in Rage lipstick which is my favourite for when I'm going out anywhere. The formula is SO moisturising which helps as I have very dry lips, the shade is a beautiful blue toned berry shade which as Cassie says in the video, is perfect for making your teeth look whiter.
