5 perfect holiday party beauty looks
1. SUPER SLICK
Create a high-impact eye by applying Chanel Ombre Essentielle Colour in Midnight ($36) with a small eyeshadow brush and then use a clean tapered blending brush to “melt away the shade,” says Julie Cusson, makeup artist for Chanel. Temper frizz and keep strands sleek with Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+ Play Tough Ultra Strong Waterproof Gel ($22). Metallic crepe top (Delpozo, at The Room at Hudson’s Bay) and rhodium-plated-metal, cubic-zirconia and glass-pearl earring (Nadri, at Nordstrom).
Tawny hues feel modern when they are worn all over and impart a gleamy finish. Capture windblown strands with Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Hairspray ($20.59). Tulle dress and silk slip dress (Molly Goddard, at SPACE at Nordstrom), diamond and gold earrings (Messika, at Birks) and crystal-encrusted choker (Alexis Bittar, at Holt Renfrew).
3. DRAMATIC LINER
Shift the focus to your lower lash line – the smudgier the better. A nude nail reads classic and edgy at the same time. Try Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polish in Organdi ($32). Silk and wool dress (Lanvin, at Saks Fifth Avenue), crystal earrings (Swarovski), 18-karat-gold-plated-brass and crystal ring (Nadri, at Nordstrom) and tulle bow (stylist’s own).
4. BOLD LIP
Take a sweet lip to a dark place by layering a clear gloss over an intensely pigmented lipstick. Try Chanel Rouge Coco in Erik ($43). French veil and grosgrain bows (David Dunkley Fine Millinery).
Craft windblown curls with Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream ($38). Leaving eyelids bare allows your lips to take centre stage with Chanel Rouge Allure Ink in 152 Choquant ($43). Diamond and 18-karat-white-and-yellow-gold vintage clip-on earrings (Archives), grosgrain ribbon worn around the neck (Mokuba) and viscose and acetate top (Stella McCartney).
