Glam UP With Glitz

Glam UP With Glitz

Sorry guys, this photo is on repeat. I did intend to get something new with sequins that really shines for the festive season but as I don’t really like the feel of these materials, I just couldn’t bring myself to buy yet another one of these items, although I’m still eyeing up a few dresses that I’ve seen on some of my favourite websites.

What better time of year to wear glitter and shimmer than during the festive holidays. If you don’t want to invest in sparkly clothing that you probably won’t wear again – or maybe you just don’t like that kind of stuff, then try using a little shimmer on your face and body with some sparkly cosmetics.

I wouldn’t recommend going all out using metallics, shimmer and sparkle at the same time unless you are going to a carnival of some some sort. A little just under the brow bone or highlighter just above the cheeks will definitely give you that glam makeup you are aiming for.

    Glam it up but keep it simple.
    Make ups should enhance your beauty, not hide it.

    Good tips! I love sparkly shiny things but I don’t have many in my wardrobe, makeup is a good way to get the look without the higher price of clothing! 🙂

    Hope that your week is going well 🙂 I had my last day at work yesterday so the Christmas holidays have officially begun here, yey!
