It's party season and there's no better time for you to step up your beauty routine. Here are five high street products that can make your makeup look party-ready in no time.
A Pop of Colour
A favorite of makeup artists and tween girls alike, there's no easier (or cheaper) way to pump up your eyes than with Barry M's Dazzle Dust £4.50. With over 60 colours to choose from, it's a great way to test out a new colour on your eyes without the commitment of a more expensive shadow.
Adding a highlighter with a golden pearl such as No7 Skin Illuminator £11 in Peach is the easiest way to add some glam to your standard makeup. Apply it to the tops of your cheekbones and cupids bow but if you want some extra shimmer you can apply it to your collarbones or even the tops of your arms. It's a great way to get a bit of shine without covering yourself in glitter.
Magnetic nails are a gimmick but what better time of year to indulge than now? Even the most novice at home manicurists can achieve dimensional and eye-catching designs with Nails Inc's Magnetic Polish £13.
A party is the perfect time to go just a touch over the top. These false lashes by Eyelure's Girls Aloud collection, £5.35, feature a fantastic winged edge which will immediately open and lift your eyes. Be sure to trim the lashes so that they fit to ease any discomfort.
Bold and Beautiful
Not only is Rimmel's Moisture Renew Lipstick, £6.29, available in warm flattering colours, it's also one of the best hydrating lipsticks in the high street. Your skin isn't the only thing damaged by the cold, protect your lips while adding rich colour.
