American Beauty

First up bright red lipstick; an iconic classic and a statement feature on the face, best worn with little else.

Smoky Bouquet

Smoky eyes tend to have a bad reputation thanks to heavy-handed application, there is a better way with softer shades of grey with a smattering of sparkle.

Angel Face

Tis the season to sparkle, but do it with some subtlety. The application of a soft illuminating pressed powder on the cheeks and eye area will give a soft shimmer.

Full Bloom

Make the most of metallic shades around Christmas, a golden eye with a slick of soft shimmer will make the prettiest of party looks.
