Christmas is all about the sparkle when it comes to clothes and make up, am I right?! I never need much of an excuse to get the glittery eyeshadows out, so Christmas and New Year are the perfect times for me to go a little overboard and look like an accident in the sequin factory.  

Eyeshadows are an obvious choice when you want to go for a sparkly look, as most palettes have shimmery shades as well as matte ones.  My favourites are the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette and the Bobbi Brown Greystone palette, both of which have gorgeous base colours and shimmer ones to layer on top.  
Benefit Sunbeam is a highlighter that is more bronze coloured than the usual iridescent pink, it compliments bronzer really well and gives a natural looking but glowing look to your cheeks and brow arches etc.  
Glitter nail polish is a must, and my current one of choice is Essie Rock at the Top, which is gold and I use it for both layering over another colour (white looks amazing with this) or just on its own or on the tips of my nails.  
And no sparkly look is complete without a bold and beautiful lipstick is it?!  My favourite this season has been MAC Full Fuchsia, which is a bright magenta pink that I find super flattering and vibrant.  

Do you love the whole sparkly look or do you prefer to keep things simple and matte? xx

  6. I'm totally with you on the glitter. I will wear as much glitter and sequins as I can get my hands on! I've been loving the Makeup Geek shadows for that, they're so intensely metallic. Love an Essie topcoat too, Set in Stones is my favourite. x

    Have a fab Christmas and fashion-tastic year 2016!

  9. I was lucky enough to receive the Dolce Vita palette for Christmas and it's the most beautiful, festive thing I've ever seen! I have pretty much turned into the heart-eyed emoji. LOVE this post - always looking for festive makeup inspiration :)
