Glam up your make up for Christmas!


This post will also be going up on  iheartmexo.blogspot.com please do take a look at Hareem's lovely blog! 

With it being Christmas I thought I'd share how you could 'glam up' your make up and nails for the joyful season. I don't usually wear loads of makeup so to me this is 'glamming it up' but you may wear this kind of look everyday and that's fine.

Glitter nails are the perfect way to instantly make your look more Christmas-sy! I love wearing glitter all year round but in this festive season its a chance to go completely overboard!
Clockwise: 
Barry M Pink Sapphire Glitter, Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch, Models Own Gold Finger, Barry M Gold Mine Glitter

Glitter isn't just for your nails either. These Collection glitter wands are great for covering your eyelids in a sparkly blanket! One end is a liquid glue and the other end a coloured glitter, you can't go wrong! I'm pretty sure these have been discontinued now but a great alternative is the Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liners that they do!

This MUA Shadow in shade 25 is the perfect winter colour. I looked at MAC Cranberry but it seemed way too red and then I found this beauty in Superdrug and for only a pound!
More glitter from collection, you can never have enough of it!

Then all you need to do is add the finishing touch, the lips! I think Christmas is a great time to crack out the red lipsticks. The one on the red is more orange toned (LOOK Beauty's Hypermelon) and the one on the right is more your basic warm red (MUA Shade 13).
I also adore this NYC Lip stain in Champagne Stain, its not as purple in real life but its still a gorgeous shade!

So, that's how I would 'glam' up my nails and makeup to adjust to the Christmas season. If you have any more ideas feel free to comment below!

Thanks for reading,

    1. Thanks :) I'd definitely say purchase the MUA first because if you still want the MAC one after that you have only spent a pound but if not you have saved a lot! xx
