It is that incredible time of year full of Christmas parties and festive events. Me and fellow blogger, Lucy, decided to write a post showing one way that you can tailor your party make up and outfits this season. You can visit Lucy over at http://www.lucyabbaszadeh.co.uk so make sure you take a look at her post!
For me it is an opportunity to dig out all my glitter and dress up in sparkly clothes! For my outfit choice, I went with a very sparkly silver theme combined with soft pinks, nudes and pearly whites. This colour combination reminds me of snow and icicles and all the glitz and glamour that often surrounds this time of year.
I absolutely love sparkly dresses but often they are attached to a very expensive price tag. Somehow though, I managed to stumble upon this incredible number from River Island! I bought it in the sale for just £25 reduced from £38 which I think is very reasonable. You can find it here.
It was only right that I wear my lovely Nails Inc. silver nail varnish with this dress. To make it a little more glam, I used eye lash glue to stick some glitter to the ends of my nails! I absolutely love the effect.
The outfit was complete with a few sparkly accessories. I wore these beautiful bracelets that I have collected over the years from birthday and christmas gifts and my Pandora birth stone ring.
Now lets talk make up! Firstly, I prepped my face with my Vitamin E Hydrating Moisturiser from The Body Shop (reviewed in my November Favourites), a primer from No7, Bobbi Brown concealer and L’oreal True Match Foundation.
I then added a bit of shading onto my face using a bronzer (shade: warm glow) from The Body Shop, Benefit High Beam and Benefit Hoola bronzing powder.
I then collected together all my favourite pink, nude and silver eyeshadows, glitter and lipgloss. See my review of this gorgeous soft pink lipgloss from No7 here. I wore this over the top of my L’oreal Colour Riche Cheryl’s Nude lipstick which is a great go-to nude shade.
I really love this silver glitter eye liner from Urban Decay. All you need it one brush stroke along your upper lash and your eyes are instantly brightened, illuminated by a gorgeous sparkle.
I was very lucky to borrow my house mate’s Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 (which you can find on my Christmas Wish list). I used a combination of the light and dark silvery shades to build up nice contrast on my eyelids.
I finished off by dusting a little sprinkle of this gorgeous white sparkly glitter onto the tops of my cheekbones. I got it in my stocking a few years go and I just love this little pot of ‘Fairy Sparkles’!
Make up and outfit complete, here is the finished look! All ready to go to my dance Christmas Party 🙂
I hope you like the finished look! What have you been wearing this Party Season? I would love to see some of your outfits, leave your links below 🙂
Lots of love,
