The festive season is here! So how do you add a little Christmas spirit into your makeup look for the office Christmas party while keeping it professional? We asked Fiona Neale, CEO/Founder of Issada.
Fiona’s Top 3 Tips
Remember your audience
Do you work in a strict, corporate environment? Or is your office culture a little more fun, relaxed and creative? If your boss and colleagues are quite conservative, your Christmas party is probably not the time to try out that 360 black smokey eye with a fuschia lip. When in doubt, focus on a flawless radiant complexion, lashings of Issada Protein Mascara, some Issada Luxe Lashes in Demure, and a classic nude (Try Issada Luxury Lipstick in Angelina) or red lipstick (Try Red Carpet Red).
Your Christmas party is still a work function and you want to appear polished, so uneven, fading lip colour is a no-no! Go for the longest wearing lip product you can find – Issada’s Ultimate Lipliners are perfect. Trace your lip border and then colour in the entire lip – this will withstand canapés, cocktails and getting caught under the mistletoe with just minimal (if any) touch ups. Pop a lipstick, crayon or lipgloss over the top if desired.
Metallic textures are perfect for adding a hint of sparkle to the office Christmas party. Try Issada’s Ultimate Eyeliners in Diamond, Cleopatra, or Envy Me – these ultra soft mineral gel pencils will glide across lids for a completely opaque bold metallic coverage that won’t smudge or fade.
Our 15 shade collection (including THREE new shades) encompasses bold mattes, molten metallics, opaque rich texture and budge proof staying power – all enriched with minerals, antioxidants, and botanicals to nourish the delicate eye area.
As exclusive makeup partner of White Label Noba Spring/Summer 2017 runway event at Soleil Pool Bar, Issada collaborated on a signature 60’s-inspired black flicked liner with a silver accent (Ultimate Eyeliner in Ninja and Diamond) and babydoll pink lips (Mineral Lip Crayon in Pixie and Mineral Neon Lipstick in Intense). The Issada Creative team created complexion perfection backstage with glowy skin and luminous cheekbones. WLN’s SS2017 collection is a celebration of the incredible lightness of being alive! It’s a season of colour, love and joy. Check out all the behind the scenes pics!
