Make the most of party season makeup with the right jewellery

The party season is getting closer, with Christmas offering you a great number of opportunities to get dolled up and hit the town.

However, to make the most of your look, you need to coordinate every little thing. This means choosing makeup that works with your outfit as well as your jewellery.

It can be difficult to know what makeup looks are right for your style and the trends you love, let alone how you can use jewellery to really show it off.

Here are some of the top makeup looks showcased on the catwalks this season and the jewellery you need to show them at their best.

Rosy lips

While statement lips are still popular, gentle rosy lips are a must-have for winter. Fitting with the vintage trend and a great choice for most skin tones, this look was seen on the catwalk of many designers, including Carolina Herrera.

Soft pink lipsticks applied in moderation to create a natural glow can be worn with all natural makeup or be used to accompany statement eyes. 

To showcase your rosy lips and ensure they are a feature without having to go bright with your lipstick, choose jewellery that has a similar hue.

Soft pink gems or embellishments will mirror your lips and make sure they get noticed. A pair of earrings like these Freshwater Pink Pearl Earrings are a stunning choice and will work well if you are going for vintage chic. 

Grunge eyes

A different take on the smoky eye look, grunge-style makeup has been popular for winter with Marni and Matthew Williamson – among others – choosing this look for the catwalk.

The look is characterised by browns and subtle metallic shades blended together in a heavy smoky style. It is all about making the eyes deep, mysterious and a little bit dirty. It is a great choice if you want to add a bit of edge to a luxury look.

A great way to mirror this is to choose dark and smoky gemstones. Something like this Brazilian Smoky Quartz and Diamond Pendant is a great choice. It has luxury and grunge style all rolled up in one so is a perfect choice for working with this makeup.  

Gothic red

Red lips never go out of style and this winter they are being worn with everything. From vintage to modern monochrome, red lips are a must and are the easiest way to make a statement.

With the crimson shade standing out so much when it's teamed with deep smoky eyes or simple winged eyeliner, you want to keep your jewellery simple.

Diamonds go with anything so are the perfect choice for wearing with red lips for a stunning and glamorous look. 

These beautiful Iliana 18K White Gold and Diamond Stud Earrings are all the sparkle you need for showing off your gothic lips.
