I don’t wear make-up very often. Usually in the morning I am so busy running around, getting breakfasts, packing lunches, walking and feeding the dog, that by the time I have finished I have run out of time. I usually slick on a bit of mascara and hope that will do. There are occasions when I feel that I need to make a bit more of an effort. It is now coming up to party season and I would really like to sparkle for special occasions. No7 have come to my rescue with a range of make-up looks. They have even provided a guide to help you create the perfect look. Whether you want evening elegance, sensational party sparkle or a look to take you from day to night, it is all covered in the No7 look guide
I was sent some No7 make-up to experiment and try out different looks. I decided to try out the gold look, Sensational Party Sparkle, as it looked lovely and natural with a hint of sparkle. I like make-up that looks natural and enhances your look without being overdone.
Sparkle is added to the eyes and nails using No7 Perfect Shade and Define in Gold and No7 Gel-Look Shine Nail Colour in Exquisite Gold. The mascara is a really dark black to finish the look, No7 Midnight Lash Mascara. First I did my nails. Nails are my one vanity, I often spend ages applying gel nails as they last longer and look really shiny. I really loved the gold colour of this nail polish, it is very festive.
With the top and base coat it gave the shiny look of gel without the hassle of applying it. These are definitely the perfect party nails and they lasted well. I then tried out the make-up. I loved the subtle hint of gold around the eyes and the gold glow added to my cheeks. The foundation was also ideal for my skin tone, I often find it hard to match. The mascara is lovely and dark but also made my lashes look really well defined. This is my look, what do you think?
I was really pleased with the result. The make up looks really subtle and natural but had a bit of a sparkle about it which is perfect for a party. I would be quite happy going out wearing this look and it makes me feel a little bit special as well. I might even be converted to wearing make-up every day with a little bit of practice.
Have you any special parties planned this year? Have you got your outfit ready?
