Happy Monday my lovelies! I am too excited for words for this week to be over and to wake up to a Christmas morning. I will touch up a little on the way I celebrate Christmas in my Friday post, if you're interested. Today I'd like to touch up on my favourite subject - making you and me sparkle. There's no way the star on your Christmas Tree will be a star of the evening, if you follow few of my tips :)
Twinkle twinkle little star.
I'm all about that glow and take inspiration from a magpie. Show me something sparkly and I automatically take my credit card out. So when I saw Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Ice Cold in stock on Beauty Bay, that was it for me. JUST TAKE MY MONEY ALREADY! <3 It is one of the most beautiful highlighters I've ever seen and if you're as pale as ghost (or me LOL), you will love it. It's white but it has a understated golden glow to it. I can't quite describe it, but it looks just wow on the top of my cheekbones. As Jeffree would say, come through GLOW. It is also the biggest highlight I own. I mean seriously huge! Beauty Killer was also on a bigger side (POST HERE) and I really don't mind as I'll be using this all day everyday. The formula is super soft and just wonderful to work with. I have nothing but praise. If you haven't already, jut try it. Peach Goddess is next on my wishlist.
Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadows are always on the top of my wishlist and I have three here to show you, to truly embark on a sparkle this Christmas journey. Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadow in 75 is pure white shimmer with delicate silver micro glitter running through. This is stunning in the inner corners or as a highlight. Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadow in 115 looks a lot like peach with golden micro glitter running through but when applied it looks like super light gold with just a tad of peach running through. Another inner corner stunner or even all over the lid if you're feeling frisky. It will also make a gorgeous lip topper and I may try that look this Christmas. Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eyeshadow in 50 (currently out of stock) is identical to MAC Rose and is a stunning reddish copper with gold micro glitter running through.It is just beautiful and will make a perfect all over the lid shade or even a highlighter for someone with deep skin tone.
Look deep in to my eyes, can you see my sparkle?
There are so many palettes that have launched this year but one has suddenly became no 1 and it's Zoeva Caramel Melange. My love for Zoeva shouldn't surprise you, the quality of the shadows is exceptional and price point very decent. This palette doesn't only sport the quality but the shade selection is just perfect for anyone who loves reds and golds as much as I do. Everything is so warm and beautiful. There's lots of mattes in there too, so if you're hooded eye girl like me, this palette should suit you so well. I adore it and use daily and sometimes I combine its magic with some Inglot pigment goodness for an extra sparkle this girl always needs.
Paint the town red.
Red is the colour of the season and a perfect way to accessorise your lip and nails this season. Opt in for true reds to add some chic to your demure. I fell in love with OPI Nail Polishes recently and Big Apple Red is just a perfect shade of red. It looks stunning on the nails and lasts a good 4-5 days with a good top coat on. I know it'll be my Xmas mani, what would be yours?
Always finish the look with a red lipstick. There isn't a bigger statement you can make than with a beautiful full red lips. I recently shared with you my tips on the application and few of my faves, so check it out HERE if you're interested. This Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Mat in M401 is a beautiful true red. It's not truly matte, more of a satin finish, but it lasts for a good 4-5 hours, even with food and no dry lips either! Mine's a sample but I will most definitely look into more MUFE lipsticks as the formula is the best I've tried so far in a lipstick form.
I won't be very active on social media this weekend, so I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you a wonderful Christmas. I'll be switching off the internet (except for Skype) and enjoying the family time and I recommend you do too. Enjoy the time you have with your loved ones, take time to re-connect and just relax. Don't look up sales just yet, Boxing Day madness will be here soon enough. I wish you the very best and I hope all your dreams (and wish lists LOL) do come true.
