Christmas party season = a photo frenzy. Snap-happy friends, relatives and even total strangers will be photographing, posting and pinning pictures for the whole world to see before you’ve even had a chance to say ‘cheese’.So make sure you’re photo-ready by arming yourself with these camera-friendly beauty tips from those in the know – your Christmas pics have never looked so good!
‘A matte bold lip in a bright shade matched with nude eyes and natural skin looks very cool and never fails to impress, plus if you're having too much fun to touch it up, you needn't worry, a faded stain of lipstick looks just as great’ says international makeup artist Lisa Houghton.
Black eyeliner pencil is my absolute favorite and always looks great around the eyes. Lots of mascara will give it a stylish sixties vibe. Try waterproof mascara to avoid panda eyes. Keep the emphasis on your eyes and pare it with a bare lip or nude baby pink
Ditch the glitz
‘A Camera Flash has a way of over emphasizing everything so avoid shimmery eyeshadow - even the most subtle application can be overpowering.
And be careful with dewy skin, it can often look sweaty especially after a few hours of partying! Try an oil free moisturizer or a semi matte foundation instead’ suggests Lisa.
