‘Tis the season for many things, one being an event-heavy social calendar, so in preparation we’ve teamed with Clarins to bring you three very different but equally as striking looks that will ensure you celebrate in style. Whether it’s a dramatic red lip that you favour or barely-there beauty, our How To edit will take the stress out of creating the ultimate party glow. We called upon the Training Team Manager at Clarins to give her top tips on how to create each look from the feature, Party Season Perfected.


This beautifully feminine look creates a flawless, radiant complexion. We’ve used our award-winning Instant Concealer to brighten the eyes and diminish any signs of dark circles, and swept a series of nude hues across the eyes to give a soft overall aesthetic that’s particularly effortless. Warm, apricot tones are applied to the cheeks and lips and we’ve finished the look with an on-trend statement brow that will leave a lasting impression.


This strong, sexy look epitomises sophisticated glamour. The Festive Eye palette is used to create a striking smokey look that’s perfect for party season. It’s then dramatised with lashings of mascara to draw further focus to the eyes. A sweep of the Bronzing Duo gives a slightly contoured look to the face and adds a subtle glow, and a soft nude lip is all that’s needed to complete the look.


Red lipstick is arguably as powerful in the make-up world as the LBD is for fashion, and the look that we have created is a timeless classic. Prep your skin properly, as this look is as much about the base as it is the lip. Skin Illusion SPF15 offers medium coverage and a perfectly even complexion, and eyes are kept subtle with a sweep of nude colouring and lashings of Wonder Perfect Mascara. Lastly, line your lips with Nude Rose Lip Liner and fill them with our bold Joli Rouge lip colour.
