BLOGMAS DAY 11: GLITTER!

On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me...
Glitter, glitter, glitter!!

Christmas is one of the few times of the year where it's acceptable to go glitter crazy - sort of. Here are a few ideas we have come up with to keep that glitter craze under control! 


Eyes





Glitter can look very flattering when applied correctly on the eyes. A little bit of silver or white in the inside corner of your eye can give it a nice highlight and make your eyes appear bigger, or a line across the lid can definitely compliment an outfit. There's not many rules when it comes to eyes because a lot of the time (especially around the Christmas season) more really is more. The only thing that we would suggest is to pick a specific colour pallette and stick to it. If you're not feeling very comfortable with the idea of wearing glitter, maybe choose a neutral pallette like browns, golds and creams. If you're going all out maybe try purples and blues.


Nails






Glittery nails are spot on this festive season. Our only advice for glittery nails is literally just to have fun with it!


Lips








Now this is the one to be careful with. Too much glitter on your lips, or the wrong colour, and you can end up looking like you've forgotten to lick your lips after eating a delicious, sugary doughnut. However, when the right precautions have been taken, sparkly lips can look amazing. 
We would suggest, if you're planning on wearing glitter on your lips, not wearing it anywhere else on the face, keep the lips as the main focus point otherwise you might end up looking a bit like a disco ball. For subtle glittery lips perhaps find a lipstick/gloss that matches the colour of your glitter and just apply the glitter with a small brush over the top of your lipstick/gloss.




We absolutely love wearing glitter as highlighter on a night out! It looks absolutely stunning when the light catches it. The only thing is, you just have to be careful not to put too much on at once. Our advice would be just to take a small contouring brush (or the brush you use for highlighting) and apply a very small amount to your cheekbones. If you like it, you can always build it up but don't go straight in with loads and end up regretting it!



So that's it! Our top tips for wearing glitter on your face & nails this season.

We hope you're having a fabulous December so far, feel free to comment any of your glitter tips below.
