The New Year is just around the corner, girls. I’m sure you already have decided which parties to end. Maybe this year you are going to some intimate friends and family gatherings or some glam house parties. But I’m sure you want to look Glam and Gorgeous to ring in last year with a bang.
Ladies, the time to bring out all your party outfits has come. But without the perfect make-up, your look would be incomplete. This is might seem a bummer to all the lazy girls (Don’t worry I’m one of you too). Or you might be busy women heading to all these parties straight after working. You just want to throw on a dress and call it a day, right?
Worry not girls because I have the perfect and easy solution for you. I am listing below some products that will make you like a bomb with minimal effort. So, no matter your skill level you will be able to create a glam look. Combine any two of the categories I recommend (or all if you have time and motivation) and you would be good to go. So, let’s get started.
Now don’t panic, I’m not going to recommend some 12 eye shadow palettes that are out of our skill level. These are one-and-done eye shadow products that even a beginner can use easily. They will help you look party ready instantly.
1) Swiss Beauty Metallic Liquid Eyeshadow
These liquid eyeshadows are considered to be dupes for the iconic Stila liquid eyeshadows. They come in twelve beautiful metallic shades. My personal favorites are champagne, silver, and paradise. They are very easy to use. They layer very well and are easily blendable. They are highly pigmented and long-lasting as well. They cost just ₹199.
2) e.l.f. Cosmetics Bite Size Eyeshadow
This has been my savior in the festival/wedding season. I rode out the season relying just on this. These small palettes come in six shades but I would personally recommend the color Rose water and Cream & Sugar. Although its matte shades are good the reason, I’m recommending this is for their shimmer shade. They are highly pigmented, easily blendable, and look so beautiful on the eyes. And the best part is you can easily apply these with your fingers. The I packaging is travel-friendly. They cost just ₹350.
You might be wondering why a mascara and not an eyeliner or a kajal. That’s because getting that perfect and symmetrical winged eyeliner is a task when you are in a hurry or your skill level is low. Mascara is an easier alternative to them. It would instantly elevate your look with minimal effort.
1) The Face Shop Freshian Mascara
This is a very underrated product. I personally prefer it rather than other famous over-hyped ones. It lengthens your eyelashes dramatically. It has Long-lasting formula that does not clump or smudge. It comes in sleek packaging that is easy to carry. Also, it has an easy to remove formula so you would not have a hard time at the end of the night. It is priced at ₹400.
2) Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara Black
Maybelline is known for its mascaras. While they have many popular variants like the colossal one and the hyper one, my favorite is this one. This gives both volume and length to your lashes. You can forget the hassle of false lashes with this one. It performs just like the higher-end mascaras at the fraction of their price. It costs just ₹510. But you can get it on sale almost every time.
Lip & Cheek Tints:
Not everyone is going to attend a glam party this year, right? You might attend a small intimate gathering of friends and family. And if you are heading to it straight from work, these lip & cheek tints will rescue you. These will need just 5-10 minutes to ramp up your looks without looking like you are heading to some party. They are perfect for small events. Also, they are really easy to use.
1) The Face Shop Water Fit Lip Tint
These Long-lasting lip tints have a water-gel texture that glides smoothly and are easy to blend in the cheeks as well. They deliver high color payoff with a high shine, glossy finish on lips, and a natural flush on the cheeks. They are available in five flattering shades. My favorites are the Rose Pink and Picnic Red. They cost just ₹549.
2) Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color
This one has a lightweight ultra-matte texture, that makes it extremely comfortable on your lips and cheeks. They give your lips a powdery matte look and add a soft blush to your cheeks. They are available in twenty different shades so you will have a wide variety to choose from. My favorite is the Pink lace and Fuchsia Suede. It is priced at ₹675.
If you have been hesitant to try red lipstick, this is the right time to do it. Red lipstick instantly brightens up your face. You won’t need anything else to feel like a diva for the party.
1) Miss Claire Matte Power Lipcolor
I have never used a liquid lipstick as comfortable as this one. It has an extremely lightweight andnon-sticky formula that makes it ultra-comfortable to wear even for a long time. It is so high on pigment that only one swipe would do the job. Also, they are matte as hell as the name suggests. It is available in fourteen shades. My recommendation for the party look would be numbers 7 and 1. It is also affordable at just ₹400. That’s such a steal for a liquid lipstick with so many features.
2) SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick
These crayon lipsticks are the bomb and worth every penny. They have a long-lasting matte formula that is pigment-packed. The packaging is travel-friendly, perfect for touch-ups. And it comes with a sharpener free so you don’t need to buy one separately. They are available in 36 beautiful shades. My favorites are Scarlett O’Hara (which is a perfect red for skin colors), Cherry Ames (a cool-toned red), Donna Pinciotti (a magenta Pink), and Poppy Adams (a Raspberry Pink). They are priced at ₹799.
Lip-glosses are perfect to amp up your daily office look to party-ready. Choose subtle colors for small gatherings and shimmer ones for the party look.
1) Biotique Natural Makeup Starshimmer Glam Lipgloss
This lipgloss has a unique creamy formula that is non-drying and comfortably on lips for a long time. They are very pigmented and have a shimmery finish that would be so apt for party looks. They come in eight shimmery shades, and my favourite is Daring Desire and Just Kissed. They cost ₹450.
2) NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss
This gloss helps plump lips with intense hydration. Its high-shine formula provides a soothing sensation while it volumizes. It is also enriched with vitamin E and coconut oil to nourish and hydrate the lips for a soft, supple feel. It comes in seven shades and my favorites are Praline and Sparkling Rose. It costs ₹650.
I hope all these tricks helped you lessen your worry about New Year party looks. Mix and match any two product categories for a look that suits the event you would be attending. For e.g., a lip & cheek tint and mascara for small intimate affairs and eyeshadow and lip gloss for a glam party look. I promise you will look you put in so much effort without actually doing much. Happy New Year in Advance, Ladies.
