Glitters For The Festive Season

Aside from red lipstick, Christmas for me is all about cracking out the sparkle and experimenting with dewy, highlighted skin. Today, I thought I would give a round up of my favourite festive glitters to get your into the Christmas spirit with your makeup. 

Of course, this post wouldn't be the same without a Lush pick or two and the Snow Angel Bath Melt creates a silky, shimmery water for you to lay back and relax in. Although there is a lot of gold glitter on this luscious melt, I don't think it transfers onto my skin at all, instead it gives an overall glow. 

Mixing liquid highlighter in my foundation is something I have been doing recently to create a dewy base which brightens my lacklustre complexion; perfect after eating one too many Quality Street. I have then been using the Cover FX Moonlight Enhancer Drops to add a sheen to my cheekbones before dusting over the Mary Lou Manizer to set it. 

The eyes are where I like to concentrate my glitter as it's super easy to create a dreamy, festive look. I always bring out my MAC Tan Pigment at this time of year, as when its mixed with a light spritz of water on an eyeshadow brush before being pressed on the lid, it's long lasting and a great contrasting colour. The Nars Rigel Eyeshadow- a much loved favourite of mine- looks absolutely gorgeous when worn in the inner corner of the eyes and looks amazing paired with a soft brown in the crease. MAC All That Glitters is a great alternative if you want something a bit paler instead. 

The easiest way to wear glitter around this time of year is on your nails as they look great when worn over colour or on their own to jazz up a Christmas party look. Essie's Penny Talk, a rose gold hue is too pretty to miss, but Essie's Summit Of Style looks great on the tips on the nails for a different spin. 

Do you wear more glitter about the festive season?
