Get the Party Look of the Season

Max Factor Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath shows us how to get the party look of the season, as seen on supermodel Candice Swanepoel.

Taken from the runway, this summer it's all about bold shimmer, lots of colour, full blush and glossy lips. For your Christmas Party or New Year's Eve celebration, consider this ultra glam look, using Max Factor products, that's sure to turn heads!

Step 1
• Using Skin Luminizer Foundation, blend evenly over face with a sponge or foundation brush

• Set base with Crème Puff Pressed Powder using the powder puff or a powder brush

• Highlight nose, cupid's bow and chin using Masterpiece Precision Eye Shadow in Pearl Beige

Step 2
• In the crease of the eye begin by creating tone and shape using Kohl Pencil in Black. On top of eyelids, apply Wild Shadow Pencil in Vicious Moss and Wild Shadow Pot in Untamed Green. Bring to outer top corners, also to lower lash line, blending out any harsh edges

• Underneath on the lower lash line apply Wild Shadow Pot in Sapphire Rage giving intensity

• On the inner corners, apply Wild Shadow Pencil in Brazen Gold for dimensional highlights

• Trace the wings and lines at upper and lower lash line using Kohl Pencil in Black. Bring out and up to create lift and length to eyes. Set black pencil on the top lash line and outer corners with Masterpiece Glide and Define Liquid Eyeliner in Black

• Shape and define your eyebrows with an Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel

• Using the Miracle Touch creamy blush in Soft Candy + Soft Murano, blend from outer corners up to brow bone and outward onto the temples

• Finish the eyes by curling lashes and two to three coats of Masterpiece Transform Mascara in Black to top and bottom

Step 3
• Taking the same colour from the temples down on to the cheek bones, apply the Max Factor Miracle Touch creamy blush in Soft Candy + Soft Murano and Colour Elixir Lipstick in Cinnamon Spell and blend well

• Add definition under cheekbones with Bronzing Powder in Golden
