Two easy holiday party looks

Get the look: Cat eye

Take a cue from Brigitte Bardot, the cat-eye queen, and wear this retro-style with a minimal face for a timeless beauty look. 

Step 1: Starting from the centre of your eye and moving outwards, use a liquid liner to draw an angled line along the upper lashes.

Step 2: Continue drawing the winged line until just below the end of your eyebrow so it's pointing up towards the end of the brow.

Step 3: Connect the end of the winged line to the outer corner of your eye and fill in any empty space between the two lines. 

Step 4: From the inside corner of your eye, draw a thin line until you reach the centre, connecting it to where you initially started creating your cat eye. 

Step 5: Finish your look by curling your lashes and adding a coat of mascara.

The liner

Bonus tip: Make sure to have some Q-tips and makeup remover handy to clean up any missteps (and there will be some at the beginning). 

Try: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black, $26, Sephora.

Get the look: Red lip

Nothing makes a statement like a bold red pout. Here's how to make your lipstick stay put from the countdown on. 

Step 1: Gently buff your lips with a warm, damp wash cloth. Apply a balm to moisturize and give it some time to absorb. 

Step 2: Carefully line the entire lip with a pencil or lip liner using quick, short strokes. This base is what gives your lip colour its lasting power. 

Step 3: Apply one layer of your go-to red lipstick all over your lips. 

Step 4: Blot your lips and reapply the lipstick. 

Step 5: Finally, touch up any uneven lines with the pencil.

The lipstick

Beauty trend: We’re loving a matte red lip at the moment because the formulas tend to last longer. 

Try: Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl, $30, Sephora.
