See It Style It

The Glossy Posse

With parties switching from real-life bubbles to virtual bashes in the blink of an eye, the smart sartorial move is to focus on your face. Perfect your makeup, and you’ll look the part… even if you’ve swapped your party dress for PJs before joining the action.

Ice, Ice Baby

There’s more to party shimmer than all-out dazzle. A subtle dusting of silver across lids and lips, and a swoosh of icy highlighter across cheeks, temples and Cupid’s bow looks as enchanting as a visit from Jack Frost himself.

Classic Chic

Crimson lips and an arc of inky eyeliner is a look that will always enchant. The secret lies in its simplicity: a blemish-free base; a wash of eye sparkle; a crisp cat’s-eye flick and sooty lashes. Finally, scarlet lips... Flawless.

Ultra Violet

Zoom invite says Disco Inferno? This calls for colour. The art to opulence is to choose your shade and blend it, tone on tone, conjuring eyes that sparkle like precious gems. Our pick for party season? Amethyst – pure decadence in makeup form!

Golden Nuggets

It’s time to rethink metallic makeup, trading flashy bling for more refined, burnished tones. Look to bronzers and highlighters with a patina of warm gold, and update your smoky eye in dark woods shot through with gilt shimmer.
