15th Nov 2018

Christmas is an endless production line of parties, dinners and nights out with the girls. It helps to have your makeup arsenal in tip-top shape.

Makeup artist Tara Anderson is one of the leading figures in Ireland’s beauty industry. She is an expert on bridal makeup and regularly shares her top tips on her Instagram page.

IMAGE is delighted to have Tara join on us November 25 for our Creative Christmas event in the beautiful surroundings of The Westbury Hotel where she will be showcasing how to create the perfect Christmas beauty look.

In preparation for the event, we sat down with Tara for a chat and she gave us her top makeup products to create a flawless festive look that will last.

1.  Sculpted by Aimee Connolly Custom Edition Palette 

“This is a foolproof palette to help you achieve a gorgeous highlight and contour. Contouring does not have to be difficult and this palette makes it extra easy with soft wearable shades that also double up as eyeshadows. The ultimate face palette.”

2. Blank Canvas Master Series Palette

“Everyone needs a neutral eyeshadow palette in their makeup collection. This is one of my all time favourites. A beautiful mix of wearable shades that suit all eye colours and skin tones”

3. Lasting foundation

“Late nights and lots of partying calls for a good coverage foundation that is going to stay out after hours of dancing. A good primer like Benefit Porefessional is a must! I have two favourite long lasting foundations which are the Nars Natural Radiant Longwear  and Flormar Perfect Coverage. Both have amazing staying power.”

4. Setting Spray

“If like me your skin is on the oily side a good setting spray will ensure that any excess shine is kept at bay. The best one, in my opinion, is the Urban Decay All Nighter, it is a miracle product!”

Join us on November 25 for a festive filled night in The Westbury Hotel. Three experts will be on hand to show you how to create the perfect Christmas including award-winning chef Paul Flynn will be on hand to show you how to make a mouth-watering festive feast, design expert Sharon Griffin of Griffin & Grey Events and Frogprince Wedding & Events will showcase how to decorate your home like an interior designer and celebrity makeup artist and beauty entrepreneur Tara Anderson will provide us with all the skills we need to know to create the perfect Christmas beauty looks.
