Some say it's the after party that really matters, but for makeup lovers it's just about pre-party. In-between party (aka the party itself) is just half of the fun. Being ready is an event that is entirely personal, and those who go out – like the red carpet-boring crowd – really go out, as you can see in the BTS movie. For the rest of us civil, festive season (which we are in if you have not been warned) we finally get the chance to play with the bold and sparkling palettes that spend most of their time sitting untouched behind you the beauty box. An evening event is an excuse to get rid of experimental glam (not that you really need one), and if you're the kind of person whose regular makeup M.O. is more on makeup makeup spectrum, the holiday gives the perfect opportunity to test sparkly shadow, bold lipstick or any combination of the two. Just call it friendly competition with the festive decor.
