Christmas party look
"Glitter and Glow"
It’s that time of year again and I have no idea how we even got here but MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! I am so pleased I managed to film a little Christmas Makeup video for you- I literally had to do it in Poppy’s 2hr nap over lunch as I am so busy at the mo and about to cater for 11 people for our annual Christmas soiree, but I really hope you enjoy it!
Any questions please comment below. I have given you a product break down below too. Enjoy!

” GLITTER & GLOW”
I would usually stick to my usual red lippy and winged liner. However I thought that I would push my boundaries and do something a little different and colourful and pay a visit to my new MAUVE Obsessions palette from HUDA Beauty – OMG it’s AMAZING!!!! WOW!!!!!! (will have to do a post just dedicated to this palette as it’s insane)!
As glitter is EVERYWHERE at the moment I wanted to add a little glitter winged liner (It’s party season after all right)??? I wanted to create strong mesmerising eyes so enhanced this by using loads of black liner (something we have seen lots of at the Marc Jacobs shows and many other shows).
Ultra-highlighted skin is a thing of 2018 – so the glowier the better! I think I used about 3 highlighters in this video – yes a tad over the top – but if applied well it’s very effective and won’t look too much like a disco ball!
I used my fave Charlotte Tilbury brow lift product here – nothing over the top but enough to compliment the heavy eye.
As the focus is on the eyes I didn’t want anything too crazy so opted for a tonal lippy (Charlotte Tilbury’s Very Victoria) with a metallic, cream finish lacquer that I stumbled across in H&M at the till (as you do) to compliment the look – why not hey – metallic is everywhere too!
Hope you enjoy watching, have a great Christmas and see you in 2018!
