Party Makeup Looks

We’ve rounded up our fave party makeup looks as seen on our fave ‘grammers for all the ‘spo. brb, raiding our makeup collection.

Beach Club Chills with my love in Mallorca ☀️?

Olivia Buckland has been serving all kinds of makeup inspo recently thanks to her killa’ hen parties (cos who only has one, anyway?). But we’re obsessed of this selfie taken with her fiancee Alex Bowen. Couple goals, right?

We love her smoked out party makeup look, complete with false lashes and and arched brows. Complete the look with a lil contour and you’ve got yourself the sort of look that automatically gets you queue jump.

Shorter locks came back out to play for the summer time ??‍♀️

A post shared by Amber Davies ✨ (@amb_d) on

Unreal Amber Davies kills it when it comes to both makeup and party hair looks. She’s gone for copper foil eye makeup, finished with a slick of eyeliner along the top lashline.

When it comes to hair, ensure you’re using hair products that promise to sooth and smooth the follicles to give hair an unrivalled shine. After blow drying hair straight, get a pair of hair curling tongs and curl hair. Wait about ten minutes, then brush through for loose waves.

When in doubt: add glitter. I'm obsessed with shimmer eyeshadows and always layer up my highlighter.
