Now like me, I'm sure you all love glitter, but unfortunately it's not always appropriate, Christmas is, however, the perfect excuse to crack that glitter open and go a bit crazy (in a grown up sophisticated way of course!).
Here's my quick and easy step by step guide to making that glitter look glam and sophisticated:
Start by using a waterproof pencil eyeliner like Urban Decay's 247 eye pencil, a black pencil will add depth to the pigment you will be using, or go bold and choose a colour pencil. Use the pencil over the whole of your eye lid all the way up to the crease. Using a waterproof and smudge proof liner like the Urban Decay one will double up as you crease free base primer.
Using a fluffy blending brush, blend the pencil upwards and out of the crease to create a soft smokey look.
Using a glitter pigment of your choice, I love Barry M's Dazzle Dusts, pack onto the lid, up to the crease, and blend any harsh lines away.
Line the lower lash line with the same eye pencil, and blend along lash line using a pencil brush dipped in a little of the same glitter pigment.
Line upper and lower waterlines with a black kohl eye pencil. Finish with a couple of coats of mascara and add false eyelashes for added drama!
Keep skin flawless, and team with a nude lip, or for the brave a bold Christmas red lip!
