Be the Eye-Light of Any Festive Fiesta


There’s a time of year when you can never have too much sparkle. From your clothes to your make-up, Christmas is the season to twinkle your way through every party and night on the town. Even if someone comments that you’ve arrived at a ‘do’ done up like a Christmas tree, that’s all right. It’s the perfect time of year, isn’t it?

If you don’t want to look as if you should be suspended from a garland on the ceiling, however, there are ways to add a little sparkle into your life without going over the top. A little glitter eyeshadow, for example, can really brighten up your face and give you the festive feel without making you seem like you need a string of fairy lights to complete your look. Here’s a look at some of the best.


Lancome Ombre Hypnose Dazzling Eye Shadow | You can always trust Lancome products to stay put and look great, meaning that you will never lose your shine half way through a party. This shade will complement all skin tones and colourings, whether you want to add a light dusting over your favourite colours or pile on the shine to really light up your night.

Barry M Dazzle Dust 106 Aphrodite | At under £5 a pot, Dazzle Dust is a great affordable option, which is a good thing considering there are lots of great colours in the range and you’re unlikely to be able to just buy one. There are shades, such as Aphrodite, that look great as sparkly base colours to complement your usual tones or really bold shades such as Electric Blue or the really festive-looking Bright Emerald. Superdrug has a three-for-two offer on all cosmetics right now, so there’s never been a better time to give your make-up bag a boost of glittering glamour.

Black Up Glitter Eyeshadow | Whether you want to dazzle during the day or sparkle with the night stars, a Black Up Glitter Eyeshadow with give you a hypnotic look that will really make you stand out from the crowd. The range is available from Debenhams, and there are 12 great shades to choose from, whether you want to create a major statement or simply to add a subtle sparkle to your look. All offer a great intense colour and won’t crease or crack mid-way through the day or night.
