So when it comes to a big night out, especially during the winter months, there is little else in the world of makeup that packs the same impact as vamping it up.

Our favourite has to be the combination of slightly sun-kissed dewy skin, rich and deep smoky eyes and of course the finishing touch of beautifully dark plum lips.
Teamed with a grade a manicure (courtesy of Bling Art of course) and you will have a look that is perfect for hitting the town!
