With Autumn out of the way, that can mean only one thing. It’s winter, and it’s time to update your fashion and beauty look with a bit of sparkle for the festive season. Don’t stress, though, it’s actually a lot easier to rock something sparkly and glittery than you think. Just read on to find out how.
Metallic hues are really in this season which is great because it means it not too hard to find something that is both available and festive. The two hottest colours are silver and rose gold. You should be looking for a short tight look with ruffle or draping. Of course, you can always rock a short loose look if you are more about channelling that 90’s vibe.
If you have warmer skin stick to the rose gold shade and for cooler tones, then silver will work well. Make sure to accessorise with chunky black velour ankle boots, and a thick black drop choker to give your outfit some serious edge.
Another thing that is bang on trend this season is the glitter lip, and what time to wear it is more perfect than for some festive celebrations? You can do any colour you like. Go for an Elsa frost queen look with silver and blue. Or a vampy look with a dark purple. Or what about a festive treat in gold and red?source
You will need a special kit to apply this look. Remember too that glitter does have a tendency to spread so regularly checks that it is still in place, and not all over your outfit instead are essential.
For those of you that want to get involved with the festive look, but are finding glitter lip a bit too much, then what about picking out a few nice pieces of sparkly jewellery instead?
You can go for some costume jewellery with a humorous twist from a somewhere like Tatty Devine. Or if only the real thing will do, how about some second hand jewellery. Then you can get real diamonds at a better price to make your glitter at Christmas!
No self-respecting fashionista will be seen without her nails on a festive night out. In fact, they are the perfect place to add a little glitter to your look as well. You can get some glitter nail polish and do your own. Just make sure that you apply it in the right way. Or you can get false nails in a stiletto or coffin shapes, that have glitter or diamante already fixed to them.
No festive look would be complete without a nice glittery eyeshadow either. Luckily there are plenty of pallets on the market to fulfil this demand.
On the cheaper end of things are pallets like Revolution’s Fortune Favours The Brave. This contains 30 glitter and matte colours which are perfect for jazzing up your festive beauty look.
But if you feel like splashing out you can go for something like the Urban Decay Shadow Box pallet. Which contains 12 glitter shades including Sin. Which is perfect for your office crimbo party or a festive girls night out!
