Holiday Beauty Sorted

If you want something a little less glittery and more It-girl cool then this beauty look is for you. An update to the traditional black cat flick, we are playing it up by extending and exaggerating the classic beauty flick, favoured by the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Amy Winehouse. If you want to up the ante further, consider a pop of chilli red on the lips, or — for a darker vibe — go for a deep burgundy red that’s perfect for the festive season.

To extend this timeless look further, you can go two ways. Opt for a darker shade on your digits and instantly become more vampish — perfect for those dark evenings. Alternatively, you can continue down the classic route and stick to a lighter nude shade. This will keep the overall look fresh and clean — ideal for a mid-day lunch with the family.

Whatever makeup you choose, keep your hair loose and bouncy. The festive period is all about letting your hair down after all!
