Fancy a very last minute makeup splurge? Head quick-sharp to a Bobbi Brown counter so, where you can bag some of her newest collection, Party Collection for Lips and Eyes. Six soft shadow shades and six glitter glosses are on offer, at €22 and €21.50 respectively. Pop them into her custom palettes and you've pretty much got your festive look sorted.
Bit wary of wearing metallic shades, though? Don't be, says Bobbi Brown's head of artistry, Paul Herrington. "Metallics really can work on all ages as the texture is not frosted so the effect is much more of a soft sheen", he reckons.
Paul adds a caveat: "you should always pick an area to use shine and shimmer. Two areas is the most you should ever use metallic or shimmer products. Metallic eye and lip looks best with a powder blush with no shimmer; or a shimmer on the cheek and a glossy lip should be teamed with a matte eye".
Duly noted, Mr Herrington!
