Longer-lasting party makeup all comes down to the prep. Taking the time to massage an antioxidant-rich moisturiser into the skin before your base will help boost circulation and give your complexion a lit-from-within glow. Try La Solution 10 De Chanel, $110, Chanel, 1300 242 635. For natural-looking brows, create dimension by using two shades to fill, define and shape. We love La Palette Sourcils De Chanel Brow Powder Duo in Naturel, $84, Chanel, 1300 242 635.
Upgrade your go-to eyeliner for the festive season by swapping standard black for deep green, such as Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Legendary Green, $47, Chanel, 1300 242 635. Line the top and bott om lashes, aiming the outer corners towards your temples to lift and elongate the eye. Complete the look with Le Volume De Chanel Mascara in Noir, $56, Chanel, 1300 242 635, and opt for a neutral lip – try Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Rouge Angélique, $55, Chanel, 1300 242 635.
For an unexpected makeup equation, pair peach cheeks with a statement red lip. The trick to pulling it off? Using contrasting textures. Sweep a warm blush across your cheekbones that throws a hint of shimmer and pat a matte finish into your lips. Try Joues Contraste Powder Blush in So Close, $75, and Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in N°4, $55, both Chanel, 1300 242 635.
DOUBLE THE FUN
Ditch outdated beauty rules that limit you to defining just one feature on your face. Build up neutral tones across the lid, transitioning into a deeper night-time eye with hints of chocolate and green shadows. Try Exclusive Creation Palette 5 Ombres in Trait De Caractère, $98, Chanel, 1300 242 635. Pair with an illuminated, barely there base and a bold red lip – we love Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in N°3, $55, Chanel, 1300 242 635.
METAL AS ANYTHING
Prefer a laid-back look? You can still bump up your makeup for the party season without straying too far from your signature style. Cream shadows are foolproof – simply pat a shimmery shadow across your lids using your ring finger. Try Ombre Première Longwear Cream Eyeshadow in Silver Screen, $52, Chanel, 1300 242 635. And for low-maintenance lips that will survive an Aperol spritz, go for gloss. Try Rouge Coco Gloss Moisturising Glossimer in True, $50, Chanel, 1300 242 635.
