A Golden Glow Makeup Look

The festive season makes me want to wear all the glitter, gold and shimmer. There's something about having a simple glimmering eye look, a dewy base and a matte red lip that gets me into the Christmas spirit. Today I wanted to share with you my favourite gold and glow top picks, some of these products will definitely make it into my festive party makeup look which will be up on my blog very soon too! 

For my base, I like to go with a brightening primer so that even if I'm wearing a heavier coverage foundation, I can still get a glowy look. The Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow* is my go-to at the moment, so it won't be surprising to see this in this round up. Another favourite I'm sure you're not going to be shocked at me featuring is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Unlocked Palette either as it's great at perking up the skin with the face powder, adding warmth my the bronzer and then a subtle, yet gorgeous glow with the highlighter. If you're looking for a budget option for the powder at least the Bourjois Java Rice Powder is great at adding a lit-from-within radiance to the skin and doesn't break the bank either. 

On the eyes, there's actually quite a few products I love and I especially like anything with glitter with. The Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid Eyeshadows* are great if you're looking to spruce up your smokey eye over Christmas and if they don't tickle your fancy, then the Pixi Liquid Fairy Lights* will as they have a great array of shades to choose from. For a more subtle look, I love the Charlotte Tilbury Jean Eyes To Mesmerise* which gives a dreamy champagne wash of colour and if I want something a little bit more on rose gold side, I love the MAC Tan Pigment

Adding glow to my cheeks is my favourite thing, but I've got so many to choose from it does become hard to just pick one. The Laura Mercier Face Illuminator is absolutely gorgeous and isn't too in your face when used with a light hand. If you're looking for something for intense then I'd definitely recommend the Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy* offering as it's one of my favourite releases of 2018. 

I've recently taken out my Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand again as the liquid formula works well to brighten up my whole complexion - it'll probably be my go to over the season!
