Celebs are ditching the traditional holiday party season looks this year, reveals the UK’s leading on-demand beauty and hair service. Typically, the festive look has always been all about glitter, smoky eyes and a red lip. But 2018 is the year in which celebs, and all of us wanting something new, are upping the ante and daring to shake it all up. There’s a comeback of gold pressed glitter balm, blue shades, violet, green and gunmetal colours for the eyes. Metallic finishes in general, especially for the lips, are hot for the festive season.
Why not push the boundaries even more this festive period? Using diamond jewels on the eyes instead of the traditional glitter. Or even the use of gold leaf – it’s a bit pricey but such a fun way of transforming a traditional glitter look into something extraordinary.
You can also opt for a high fashion twist on festive glam by combining a deep plum lip with warm burnished oranges on the eyes finished with a wash of shimmer.
The holiday party season is a particularly high octane time of year with back to back events including glam nights out with the girls, fun family parties, romantic date nights, glitzy works events, and dazzling award ceremonies. And we all desire that standout look that’s suitable for whatever the occasion requires. We want a look that truly makes a statement but simultaneously says who we are, who we identify as, and what we represent, rather than the same-old, seasonal default looks.
Beyou – the nationwide app that allows you to book make-up artists and hair stylists direct to your door whenever you want, wherever you are – says Britain’s coolest personalities are preparing to “up the ante and are daring to shake it all up.”
The service, which is now available across Britain for all occasions and for all budgets, has clients including chart-topping singer-songwriters, A-list actresses and reality and social media stars.
Charlotte Green, Beyou CEO and co-founder, says: “Social media is responsible for this tangible sea-change. Nowadays, all of us want to be Insta-ready with something different!
“People are super excited about being part of this year’s revolution in festive looks. This is being reflected in the high numbers of bookings we’re already receiving for the party season.”
