Body Glitters

After being banished to the backs of bathroom cupboards everywhere, body glitters have begun making a comeback in recent years, with celebs like Halsey and Miley Cyrus spotted wearing glitter from head to toe at awards ceremonies.

To add a little something to your decolletage, we cannot go past the Sol Dry Oil range, with a colour range from pink to gold, there is something to suit every skin tone. This range is notorious for being quick-drying so that it won’t stain your beautiful outfit.

If you’re looking for something more subtle for an all-over shimmer and some cheeky sun protection, look no further than Ultra-Violette Extreme Screen. This skinscreen leaves a beautiful coconut-scented shimmer on your skin while sneaking in SPF50, perfect for any outdoor parties.

Extravagant Eye Make-up

Like so many others we have been completely enamoured by the makeup looks from HBO’s Euphoria, so naturally, we tracked down the glitter they used. The Lemonhead Los Angeles Spacepastes and Glowjam’s are the most high quality, and high intensity glitters on the market.

You can use these to create Euphoria-esque dramatic looks, or to take your everyday makeup up a notch or three! If you’re looking for a sparkly liner to accentuate your festive look, then both Urban Decay and Tarte have fantastic options. Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter range has 11 different shades and is buildable for light or heavy coverage depending on your mood.

For those of us still in our rose gold obsession then the Tarte Tarteist PRO Glitter Liner in Rose Gold has no real competition. A double-ended rose gold liner with glitter topcoat this will elevate your day-time look.

Your makeup can make or break your overall look, and attention to detail is key. Choosing the right eyebrow shape can enhance your facial features and complete your makeup look. Thankfully, an eyebrow shape guide is available to help you navigate the factors involved, such as face type and brow mapping. With this helpful guide, you can determine which eyebrow shape is perfect for you and achieve a flawless look every time. Don’t let your eyebrows become an afterthought in your daily routine – take the time to perfect them with the right shape and watch your overall look come together beautifully.

Highlighters and Bronzers

The Chanel Cream-Gel Bronzer has a cult following for a reason. When applying this bronzer, try to consider the places that the sun would naturally hit your skin and give them a bit of extra attention for a more natural look.

There are an astounding amount of highlighters currently on the market. For a shade to match any skin tone, we cannot go past the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light wand. This highlighter melts into the skin and gives you a ‘lit from within look’. It can be worn standalone or over powder, so this is the perfect versatile product to give your look an extra glow this holiday season.


Glitter nail polish is the obvious and most sparkly answer, but for those looking to elevate their look, Manii’s Confetti instant at-home nail art is the perfect option. Their ready-made manicures that you apply using a topcoat can be on in just minutes while still offering all the class of salon-level nail art.


For those who are looking for more of a natural glow, try adding a Vitamin C product to your everyday routine. A Vitamin C will even out your skin tone and give you a year-round brightness and glow that you don’t have to save for just the holiday season. We recommend the Medik8 range and the C-Tetra Intense product for something on the stronger end.

Whatever you’re wearing we hope it sparkles, and you glow with confidence.
