Are you planning your Christmas party look already? We've looked to the catwalk for beauty inspiration this season.
Here are three easy-to-wear make up trends to try out before you hit the dancefloor...
1. 1970s glamour
"This is pull-out-all-the-stops party beauty," says Marks & Spencer's beauty editor Jess Clark. "Think molten metallic eyes with power-pout lips and lightly sculpted skin for magnetic appeal: the perfect finish to your festive ensemble." Look to Emilio Pucci's Autumn/Winter 2014 show for notes on how to embrace a modern take on this era. Product wise? Diego Dalla Palma's Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in pink will give you the perfect statement pout while Stila's Foil Finish is the secret to sparkling eyes.
2. Fairytale romance
After something a little more flirty and feminine? This is the trend for you. "Pastel shades like lilac, peach and pink applied with a light touch against clean, polished skin bring a feeling of flawless fantasy beauty," says Clark. Stick to pretty pastels on the lips, eyes and cheeks (we love Stila's Convertible Colour Dual Lip & Cheek Cream) for a flawless finish.
3. Black magic
While beauty trends come and go, this is a look that never dates. "Choose one key black accent, such as kohl-black eyes or black-cherry lips, for a modern, midnight-ready feel that's loaded with drama," recommends Clark. Try Autograph's Gel Liner on the eyes paired with a berry-coloured gloss on the lips. Need style inspiration? Tom Ford's tailored tuxedos from his Autumn/Winter 2014 collection should do the trick.
