As always, during party season, makeup must be bigger, must be more sparkly, and you must definitely add that extra ounce of glitter to your eyes, lips and nails. It goes without saying that you only do one of the two with regards to your face. Don’t overdo it with huge glittery purple eyelids and a pout full of red lipstick. That is a no go area! Instead, do one or the other. Either, you have the most beautiful smoky eyes ever, or the bright lipstick with that WOW factor; never, ever both!
Now that the rules are set, lets have fun exploring the different looks in style this Christmas.
Bright eyes are always a must during the Christmas holidays. Whether you are going on a night out with your friends, a Christmas family party, a meal out, or even if you will be staying in all day, be sure to try this trend at least once! All it takes is a pallet of colour, a make-up brush and you are done! If you want to try the smoky eye look, start with the lightest shade. Brush the colour all over your lid and up to your brow line. Then, with the second colour, brush over your entire eye lid, and underneath the rim of your eye for that extra pop of colour. Next, with the darkest shade, apply from the middle of your eye lid to the outer corner, again do this along the bottom rim, and blend. Add black eyeliner and mascara and you will have beautiful bright eyes!
Red lips are on the rise again during December (as if they ever went away!). Combine rouge lips with a sexy sixties flick or nude makeup for that extra flourish about the lips. It will draw all those boys to you under the mistletoe this season. Right now, Rimmel London and Dolce and Gabbana have fabulous ranges of red lipstick, so go and buy as a little treat for yourself, or a loved one. Or, you could ask for it as a gift for Xmas!
Girls don’t need excuses for glitter in our lives. Nonetheless, Christmas is the time to make everything around us festive and that means glitter! Be it gold glitter, silver glitter, or just colourful glitter, wear it and you’ll be feeling festive in no time! The easiest way to wear glitter as part of your makeup is through your nails. Keep it colourful with Barry M Nail Varnish. As you all know, they come in a huge range of colours including glittery ones. Plus, the great thing about glitter nails is that they create an entire different look for your outfit. Glitter eyeliner also does the trick!
