Where the Tree Tops Glisten...


ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS...
Christmas is without doubt my favourite time of year! Hot chocolates, candles and twinkly fairy lights are all part of the fun, but I thought I'd add a bit of sparkle into my winter wardrobe this Christmas with some of my fave shimmery products...

These are the items that I've literally been loving this Crimbo...

On my eyes, I've been turning to the shade Kitten, from Stila's In The Light Palette. It's a beautiful pearly peach that has a touch of MAC's All That Glitters about it. I think it would look beautiful on all eye colours and really makes you look wide eyed (sans the bushy tail). For an easy but beautiful daytime look just dust this across your eyelid (I like to add some along my waterline too, but be careful because if you get this stuff in your eyes it burns!) For a safer option under your eyes, I love pairing this eye shadow with the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Angelfish too which is a subtle rose gold shade. Team this with a slick of black liquid liner across your upper lash line and lashings of mascara for a fuss free festive face.

To finish off the look, I add a light layer of my Dior Addict Lip Gloss in the shade 257 Pink Trench for a gorgeous shimmery pink shade.

Finally, on my nails, I've been sporting Barry M's Nail Paint in the shade 337 Pink Silver Glitter, they sure are inventive with their names! I think it looks lovely and festive and is a beautiful icicle pink colour (to blend in with all those fairy lights I was talking about).

So whether its your treetops, your eyelids, your lips or your nails this Christmas, make them glisten with my top pick of Shimmery Shades!
