4 Classic Beauty Looks For This Party Season

  • Pin it

Talking about parties and preparations for the said parties. This season, I’m always trying to add some red to my outfit or my beauty routine. Which is, as I often told you about it, pretty basic. I always have my nails done, I’m taking great pleasure and go to great lengths to assure myself a flawless manicure, matching the outfit / the occasion.

It’s also true that, due to a heavy duty schedule, I tend to keep my nails more on the French side (remember an Instagram showing you just that) but I also like variations on a given theme (take the first Christmas – themed nails this season, also shared with you via Instagram – even now, as I type this, I have a candy cane, white and red manicure: this here, to be more exact!). The same goes for this beauty looks here. Four variations on the same theme. Cat – eyes and bold lips:

{1} cat eyes, red lips: because you need the right red to hit the right note from ‘Santa, baby…’ (so much more after the jump! Don’t be shy, click more!)

{2} cat eyes, burgundy lips: because wearing red for Christmas is so cliché !

Not for me, these looks and this model leave me rather cold.
