1 The base
* For this look you want a fresh, dewy base as the overall finish is glamorous. I used Clarins True Radiance Foundation, which you can apply with a brush or with your fingers.
* I also applied a bit of BareMinerals Correcting Concealer under my eyes for a little extra coverage. It's easy to get a little tired during party season, which can lead to the odd blemish. This concealer gives full coverage without ever looking thick or caked.
* Now set everything in place with a dusting of translucent powder. I used DiorSkin Matte and Luminous Hydrating Loose Powder, which is lightweight and has tiny just a hint of shimmer to create a really glowing complexion.
2 The eyes
* Start by taking BareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow Palette in The Soundtrack and sweeping the champagne shade all over your lids to act as a base colour.
* Blend BareMinerals High Shine Eye Colour in Glisten all over your eyelids. It's richly pigmented, so a little goes a long way.
* A fine black eye liner goes beautifully with glitzy eye make-up like this and really makes the colour pop. I lined my upper lash line with the DHC Liquid Eyeliner, gently stretching my eyelid and applying the pen as close to my lash line as possible.
* No party look is complete without mascara. I used Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara on my top and bottom lashes, wiggling the brush all the way up from the root to spearhead lashes and avoid clumping.
* Finally, fill in your brows with Clarins' Brow Palette.
3 The cheeks
* To go with the dewy base, I recommend a cream bronzer to achieve a fresh-faced finish. I used Body Bling Bronzing Cream, which gives a gorgeous shimmering sunkissed finish and is easy to apply - just dab it under your cheekbones and blend in your fingers.
* Next, I added a touch of Body Bling Highlighting Cream along the tops of my cheekbones, giving them a glistening sheen.
4 The lips
* Red lips are a party classic. I used Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipstick in ruby.
* For long-lasting, apply a coat straight from the tube then blot with tissue before applying a second layer.
