It's one thing to get excited about Christmas, but party season is a whole new ball game. If you crave something cooler than bronzer and red lips, look no further that Tomboy Beauty's latest shoot. Aptly titled "Cool Girls Wear Lipstick Too", it showcases a bunch of imperfect, high-glamour, glossy beauty looks we're coveting for the silly season.
Perfect lines and crisp paint-jobs need not apply; this aesthetic is all about blurred edges, smudged metallics, and shiny pigments that will probably outshine your outfit. If you're looking for summer party beauty inspo (or just like looking at beautiful images), keep scrolling.
This is all about shades of bronze. Dust a bronzer all over, layer on the nude lip gloss and press a beautiful creamy shadow all the way up to your brow bone. Try Tom Ford's duo shadow in Adonis ($87).
Solid proof that lipstick need not be polished or rigid. Go for a punchy tint that has a glossy finish like the Hourglass Stylo in Visionary ($46). There's no shame in pairing it with a heavy metallic lid.
Blown out waves and matte pink lips are made for late-night holiday parties. Press on Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment in with your ring finger (Warm Leatherette is our shade of choice). For eyes, we can't go past Urban Decay's Eyeshadow in Midnight Rodeo ($31).
Imperfect gunmetal grey is made for New Years Eve. Smudge a wet-look shadow like Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Molten Moonlight ($35) over the entire lid and into the brow bone.
Glossy lids aren't going anywhere, as far as we're concerned. After you've applied your favourite shadow, smudge on Lanolips 101 Ointment ($19). Don't stress over colour that bleeds or runs. Add a little to your lips and to brush up your brows, and you're done.
