‘Tis the month of revelry with Christmas parties left, right and centre. Make sure you sparkle this festive season by adding some glitz with your make-up. Glitter and shimmer are perfect for getting in the mood and will brighten any outfit.
I created these looks for Volt Cafe and think both would be great for some festive fun.
For this first look I applied The Organic Pharmacy’s liquid shimmer all over the eyelid, blending it into the inner corners – by using a cream first you get more of an intense colour. I then went over it with Alima Pure’s mineral highlighter in Lumina, these kind of colours will brighten any complexion – great if you have already been to a few parties and are feeling a little weary! I then added more sparkle and shine with a glitter from Bella Pierre. Glitter has a habit of getting everywhere, a little dusting on the face can be nice when it catches the light but if too much drops try removing it with a bit of sellotape. Don’t use your best brush to apply it either as you’ll find glitter in the hair for weeks after!
For this second look I used 100% Pure’s satin eyeshadow in Bora Bora as a base and then went over it with W3LL PEOPLE’s mineral shadow in 83, taking it all over the lid and up to the brow. The mascara is from NatOrigin. Gold is such a great colour for all skin tones and eye colours, just be weary of ones that are too yellow as they don’t tend to be so flattering. Add a little glitter on top for extra party sparkle.
