All That Glitters
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ll know that sequins are the new black…
Seductive as they are, we should all keep in mind that this is one trend which should be approached with caution. Choosing to wear that little sequined black dress will have you lost in a sea of dazzle at any of this year’s Christmas parties, completely indistinguishable from any other woman in the room.
A glamorous and far more adaptable way of wearing sparkle is to adorn your eyes with jewel like textures instead. ‘Tis the season to be glittery’ and the sky’s the limit when it comes to bold, experimental makeup. Try these show stopping products for creating high impact, party looks.

These easy to use, affordable liquid liners give eyes the X factor in seconds. “Gossip”is gun metal silver which looks terrific applied all around the lash line.
Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Chrome Eye Shadow £18
Flying off the shelves are Bobbi’s three new metallic eye shadows. I used “pewter” in a shoot for Warehouse recently and it looked amazing! Simply brush it all over the eye…from lashes to brows and team with black eyeliner for a glam- rock take on the smoky eye.

Barry M Glitter Lashes £4.95
I love the gold shade of Glitter Lash and have been using it a lot on shoots lately….layering three thick coats of it over black mascara. The effect is amazing when the lashes hit the light.

Screenface Polyester Glitter in Crystal £9.74
This is my favourite brand of glitter to use around the eyes. Other brands often make their glitter particles too big, which can irritate the eyes and end up looking patchy towards the end of a long night. Screenface makes super soft, fine glitter which holds well and looks fantastic when dabbed over a little Vaseline that has been applied to the eyelid first.
