As December 25 fast approaches, so does the office Christmas party. While many focus on how to not let their work Christmas party ruin their careers, the Match My Makeup ladies’ focus is squarely on finessing and impressing. We’ve spent the year dipping our fingers and faces into the best the business has to offer, with the lab team either raving about or condemning foundations, concealers and powders alike. 

Will the MMM team go for newly discovered products, will they stick with their old and faithful, and what is everyone's makeup inspo for the silly season?

Victoria (CEO & Founder)

Vi party makeup
The brains and beauty behind the empire, Victoria is the guiding force and visionary behind Match My Makeup. With one foot in the present and one in the future at any and all times, I once had a full conversation with Victoria without realizing she wasn’t focusing on me, she was dreaming up her next piece of revolutionary tech. Brilliance never rests! And neither does Victoria’s love for MAC’s Ruby Woo, the hero of her lunch makeup look. Healthy glowing skin, a classic black wing and a festive red lip bring this all-time classic look together with ease.

Rachel (Product/Sales Manager)

Rach Party Makeup
Rachel is our straight-talking, no muss no fuss, practicality rules Product & Sales Manager, approaching life and work with admirable and militant strategy, organization, and several google documents (in their relevant folders). Thus the approach for her party looked centered around her fabulous bright orange dress - makeup had to be the right balance between enough for going out to a special lunch but not so much that it would clash.We think she balanced like the pro she is, and loved the pop of individual lashes!

Simone (Accounts Manager)

Simone party makeup

Simone's a pro at juggling relationships, she’s an endless well of positive vibes and could talk the leg off a chair! Why wouldn’t you want to work with her?! She's also a qualified MUA, she really can do it all. So what does an MUA wear for a stay-all-day party look? Simone's gone with 90% tried and true faves, but like the rest of the office, she's been indoctrinated into the MMM Rose Inc Tinted serum cult to bring together this fresh-faced-summer-ready soft glam look.

Ash (Mat Leave, Lab Manager)

Ash party makeup

Ash has paused flexing her expert eye for color and managerial skills in the Color Lab to bake and birth her glorious second babe, Goldie, so it was a rare treat to be in her ethereal presence for our office Christmas lunch. Feeling the red lip might be risky for an Italian lunch, Ash did not fail to turn it on with this show stopping eye moment, giving both peacock and mermaid, we can’t decide, and it doesn’t matter. A hydrated pink lip balanced out the look and made slurping down the Vodka Rigatoni a less messy affair.

  • Foundation - Rose Inc Tinted Serum / Lisa Eldridge The Foundation

  • Concealer - NARS Soft Matte Concealer

  • Bronzer - Chanel Cream Bronzer

Fleur (Lab Manager)

fleur party makeup

Fleur’s been stepping in for Ash the last few months, steering the Color Lab through an extremely busy back end of 2022 and handling it by trying on a different foundation every 2 days. What, they’re right here, it would be crazy not to! Newly discovered YSL foundation had to be the go-to base for the party, and never one to be intimidated by the threat of a red lip pasta mess and wanting to be festive, she braved a red glossy lip and hoped for the best (glad to report red lip color stayed put, but sad to report red pasta sauce did end up on white linen pants).

Mel (Color Analyst)

Mel Party MakeupMel spends her days comparing the minutiae of color in the MMM color lab, so of course her shade match is on point for her party look. She's also become a bit of a mixing-master and has crafted her own concoctions for her complexion products for her party look. Having all her skin’s collagen at its peak (ah to be 20 again!), she doesn’t have to do much to pull off a flawless application. Her vibe for the party, "glowy, bronzed, summery, what's new!"
