The party season is officially upon us (pass the Prosecco please!), which means a whirlwind of Christmas parties, dinners, social gatherings and family get-togethers for the next four weeks. Yay!
It can be a whirlwind though with kids, work and Christmas shopping duties (I wish I was an organised October shopper) making December the most hectic month of the year!
Such a busy schedule means I’ve mastered the art of day to evening make up in less than 20 minutes. School run face takes five minutes so my evening look feels practically leisurely at twenty!
When it comes to party make up, I love to mix it up, always adding to my collection and trying out new looks. While I sometimes like to go all out glam with bold red lips and smokey eyes, I also love embracing the more natural look for night time, simply enhancing my day look and accentuating my eyes and cheek bones.
It’s great for a low maintenance but still polished look and this is where Boots Natural Collection comes in. Exclusive to Boots, it’s perfect for achieving a beautiful natural look!
Oh…and it’s AMAZING value too! All the products are just £1.99 each! Pretty amazing huh?! Testing them recently for date night, I was incredibly impressed with the quality too.
Key to this look is tinted moisturiser which gives a lighter, fresher and more dewy look in comparison to foundation.
Natural Collection’s Tinted Moisturiser gives my face colour and consistency while looking au naturel.
Using finger tips, it’s easy to apply and has an even consistency.
After applying the tinted moisturiser, I then used Natural Collection’s Cover-Up Stick to conceal any blemishes and under eye dark circles (cheers kids!)- for a flawless base.
I then finished off with pressed powder to reduce shine. It also sets make up in place for longer so is a must for the party season.
For a natural evening look, opt for blusher for a rosy cheek. One of the more underrated make up items, a sweep of blusher will make you look younger, sculpts cheekbones and perks up your complexion. It’s my make-up bag essential!
I’ve recently become a bit obsessed with highlighter and don’t leave the house without it! I love how it can instantly transform your face, giving a reflective and in this case, bronzed look.
The Natural Collection highlighter comes in stunning shades and is super easy to blend for a chic look.
Onto the brows and I love, love, love the Natural Collection Brow Kit! I’ve never been one for the whole ‘scouse brow’ look and prefer my brows to look natural but with definition.
Natural Collection Brow Kit – £1.99
The brow kit is easy to apply thanks to the sculpted brush and lasts all day. The wax sets the brows, the colour helps you fill in any gaps.
When it comes to eye make up, for a natural party look, I stick to tawny brown shades with just a sweep of liquid liner and mascara.
Natural Collection Duo Eyeshadow – £1.99
I love the Natural Collection Duo Eyeshadow. It comes in 8 shade combinations – my fave is the Mocha/ Latte which has a natural brown for the lid and whiter shade to highlight up to the brow.
The eye shadow is really easy to apply and blend with vibrant pigments.
And of course, no party look is complete without lashings of mascara. This long-lasting, waterproof mascara is perfect for the living it up on the dance floor!
A slick of liquid eyeliner, again £1.99 as per all the products and lots of lippy!
Natural Collection’s Moisture Shine Lipsticks leaves lips looking and feeling luscious. It leaves a subtle shine and comes in 18 stunning shades.
Et voila! My natural and chic evening look is complete!
What do you think?
