Celebrity make up artist Collette Casey and 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® share party tips for this festive season…
You’ve found that perfect dress, bought your evening bag, even planned your up-do, now all you need is the flawless beauty look to steal the show!
Celebrity make up artist Collette Casey and 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® reveal top beauty tips to add that extra sparkle and shimmer this festive season.
For those that wear glasses or contact lenses but want a new look this Christmas, try 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE®. These innovative beauty lenses will act as an eye liner for the iris giving your eyes that all important brightening boost!
The beauty enhancing lenses are available in two iris inspired designs:
for depth and intensity
for a luminous, brightening effect
It’s important to remember, before you start to apply make up to put in your lenses first!
Firstly cleanse and moisturise your skin before applying make up, then let the Christmas glam begin! A handy tip is to mix illuminator with your foundation, apply using a stipple brush in circular motions to add extra radiance.
To complement the defining effect of 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® don’t forget to neaten those brows. Comb through either a shadow or brow gel to soften the look. Then apply a clear brow gel to keep your brows in place all day…and night!
Add a natural pink or peach blush to the apples of your cheeks, blending out softly towards the ears, before using a bronzer to give your skin a glow. Then, with a highlighter brush, sweep the bronzer across your cheek bones adding to the NATURAL SPARKLE™ already in your eyes.
Using a black liquid or gel liner, mark where your flick should finish and use this as a guide when applying to the lash line. The 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® lenses acting as a liner to your iris, matched with the bold liner on your eyes will create a look more defined then ever!
For this look to last, and especially for those wearing the 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® lenses, cream eye products will be best as there is no dust. If you prefer powder, keep eyes closed when applying and brush any excess away before opening. Use a darker shadow in the sockets and the outer and inner corners of the eyes to add extra impact to this night time look.
Apply glue to the lashes then place the centre of the lashes to the centre of your lash line, once in place push down making sure there are no gaps. When dry, apply mascara to blend the lashes and add drama to your look.
To really smoke up your eyes ahead of the office party, use a black eyeliner – for contact lens wearers only apply on the portion of your lashes that is well away from the eye. Then, with a brush smudge to soften the line and blend.
Use a natural lip liner to fill in your whole lip area and then go over this with a clear or natural gloss to perfect this look so you’re ready for the party season!
1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE® Contact Lenses are designed to correct vision and naturally enhance the appearance of eyes using highlights to bring depth and brightness to your natural eye colour – without actually changing eye colour.
In fact, studies show faces with a more distinctive definition around the iris are rated as more attractive.1 Since an edge around the iris usually fades over time, a defined one can suggest youthfulness and good health
