Christmas Sparkle!

Make sure you look and feel amazing this winter, especially with Christmas parties and gatherings well under way. There are many reasons to enjoy the Christmas festivities, but for us, wearing Christmas makeup tops the list (well, alright, it comes in second right after opening presents). It's a perfect excuse to go all out with the jewel tones and glitter because of the holiday gatherings, family time, and enchanted atmosphere. Even though we're still easing back into events, any event you have planned is a perfect excuse to get out the brushes and eye shadow pallet you've been longing to use.

A little blusher or mascara can give a dull skin some lustre. Makeup is a wonderful tool to have at our disposal. Similarly, many turn to TikTok, for inspiration on products and techniques to help turn back the hands of time when it comes to ageing. We may all agree that bad habits make us appear dated and older, but that doesn't mean we can't still enjoy ourselves!

Try the following

  • Skin hydration: Cleanse and moisturise your skin every day, and if you can, incorporate some basic face-massage techniques.
  • Lighten up your foundation - There are now some fantastic light-weight foundations available that are formulated to feed the skin with high-quality natural ingredients.
  • Choose a cream blush for a royal flush. A cream provides a more radiant glow while powder provides a matte finish.
  • Find the ideal Red lipstick for you to switch up your look!
  • Get glowing! A little highlighter is an excellent tool for drawing attention and accentuating the shape of your cheek bones.
  • Go disco and choose a super-glam Smokey eye with metallic grey. For more drama, extend the curve all the way out to the brow bone.
  • Nothing is more stylish (or simpler to perform) than a sleek kitten's eye.
  • Seasonal Glam - Red lips and winged liner are holiday mainstays, but this variation feels new thanks to the dreamy shimmer eye makeup.
  • Wine Lips - Swap your traditional red for a deep berry or wine tint if you're feeling edgier this Christmas (and who isn't, let's face it).
  • A glittering gold eye - Brings out your inner diva add a liquid eyeliner to really make an impact! Richer hues like emerald, sapphire, and amethyst are ideal for the winter season to. To really make your eyes pop, keep everything else neutral.


The Festive season always inspires us to try something new and different and we all love an opportunity to shake things up and re-invent ourselves.
