Shimmery, Glitter Makeup
Glittery, sparkling makeup isn't a look i've been keen to try out, takes me back to my middle school days. Those glitter powder puffs? Yeah , I had one of them. Since then, glitter makeup has grown-up a lot and has recently made it's way onto catwalks at Jason Wu and Dior. Get ready to go all Magpie-eyed on me with these sparkly makeup gems.
Barry M Dazzle Dusts £4.59
These pots of loose glitter are oldies but still a goodie. The loose glitter can get a little messy but these are great value for money and last ages!
Barry M Nail Paint £3.99
A glitter mani is just what you need to get into the festive season. I love these Barry M nail paints, they come in so many different shades and textures. This subtle glitter shades makes a gorgeous topcoat or you could just paint an accent nail for less sparkle.
Eyeko Liquid Metal Liner in Black Onyx* £21.00
A new launch from British beauty brand, Eyeko. The twist-up design means the eyeliner won't dry out! Once you get use to dispensing the right amount it's a doddle to use. Little flecks of gold glitter are suspended in the black liquid adding a subtle, sophisticated twist to the classic cat eye.
Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in Pink Light £11.99
Tiny particles of glitter are suspended in this light cream, leaving skin with a gorgeous glow without looking shiny. This comes in three different shades to suit all skintones. A little bit goes a long way so I squeeze a small amount onto the back of my hand and use my fingers to dab it onto my cheekbones, brow bone and nose. This highstreet highlighter is a great, cheaper version of Benefit's High Beam - good job Revlon!
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss £6.99
I'm not a massive lipgloss fan but they are ideal for winter as they offer extra moisture and hydration than lipsticks. These go on sheer but you can build it up for a more intense colour. A little hint of shimmer helps to make lips appear fuller. I love the packaging with these, they resemble something more highend.
OPI in Rainbow Connection £12.50
I dont own many OPI varnishes because they are so pricey but I love this multi-coloured shade. This looks great on it's own or layered on top of grey or white. L'oreal have bought out a great dupe for this recently which costs a lot less!
Time to embrace the glitter make up and December is the perfect month to infuse your beauty routine with all things glittery. A few ways to change things up: Mix an illuminator with your body lotion, or brush some loose glitter onto the tips of lashes for a sparkly flutter.
