Getting all glammed up is highly competitive at this time of year so be better than your colleagues and go the full wattage version of you. Follow these tips on how to take festive make-up to another level with new ideas that shimmer, dazzle and shine…Whoop!
Think bling, not bonkers when it comes to skin – a subtle sheen is all you need – glitter’s way OTT. Perfect your face with a soft-focus glow by using a BB cream which smoothes out uneven skin tone while shrinking pores, then add a bit of razzle-dazzle to your shoulders, décolleté and collar bones.
Personally, I love:
- Garnier Skin Perfector BB Cream
- Guerlain Vol de Nuit Perfumed Shimmer Powder
Get creative on fingers – go for glitter, layered up black with a colour on top for a hint of a hue, or create an antique feel by painting fingers with a rich colour like purple, midnight blue or burgundy and smooth gold leaf on top.
- OPI Nail Laquer in Rainbow Connection
- Givenchy Vernis Please in Noir Celeste
- Gold leaf from art shops
First off – head to Jinnylash for your eyelash extensions then you won’t have to bother applying – or removing – mascara all Christmas (£150 for a full set). Then intensify glitter by wearing a cream eye shadow base with a super shiny finish first and press the glitter on top with your finger. Black or gold suits everyone.
Give any of these goodies a go:
