Party makeup essentials you can’t get through December without
Christmas and New Year’s 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 2018 other 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 December 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.

We recommend: Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer


2. A full-coverage concealer

8. Makeup remover

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.

3. Highlighter

For the festive season, one party makeup essential is a reliable highlighter. Highlighting your cheeks will give your face that much-wanted pretty glow. Practice your sculpting game so that all the prettiest lights bounce off all the right places on your face.

Add a setting spray to the equation, and you’ll surely be good to go. Using a setting powder or spray will also save you from a countless number of touch-ups, and will let you actually spend time at the party instead of in front of a mirror in the washroom.
