Make your Christmas Sparkle


Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la-la la-laa, la la la laa.....and wear as much glitz and glam as possible! What more of an excuse do you need when the party season is upon was? When we can 'go all out' and 'dress to impress'. There are loads of products on the market to make us Christmas party ready, and these are a few of my picks guanteed to add a touch of sparkle into your life..

Festive Nails that Sparkle.
Introducing glitter to your nails is a super easy way to add a bit of razzle dazzle into your look without going the whole hog with glittery makeup. You can wear them on their own, on a accent nail, or even a gradient effect, either way it's one way to where glitter if you're not a glittery person. 
One word of warning though, glitter polishes can be a bugger to remove so I recommend a glitter base coat (OPI do one) or when removing them wrapping them in a soaked cotton pad wrapped with foil - it will make the removal process less time consuming.
When it comes to nail polish you can spend as little or as much as you like. Budget brands like W7* have some fab offerings, as well as your well known high-street brands such as Bourjois* and Essie


L-R Mac Copper Pigment, Joan Collins 'Gold' from the Moody Browns Eyeshadow Quad*, Bourjois Glitter 'pop shade' from the Smokey Stories palette*, Collection glitter liner in 'Dancing Queen' and 'Funk'.
 
Glitter liners.
Glitter liners are really fun way of adding that festive touch to your eye makeup. These ones from Collection are fantastic for the price and go on really easily without looking patchy and delivering just the right amount of glitter. You can wear them on their own or layer them over a black/coloured liner to intensify the glitter effect and make them stand out more.


Eye Shadows
I love a bit of sparkle on my lids and this can jazz up the simplist of make up looks. You can wear them in the inner corner for a sublte shimmer or pop them in the middle of the mobile lid to really draw attention to the eyes, and even go all out and wear them completely on their own - which is sure to inject some major festive sparkle!
Loose pigment glitters can also be mixed with nail polish to create your own unqiue shade, and lighter shades can act as an intense highlighter on the cheek bones - and look fab dabbed onto the cupid's bow to really make your lips stand out and even make the top lip appear a little bigger.


Will you be sparkling this Christmas?
