When it comes to Christmas, you can’t get a more iconic look than red lips and gold glitter eyes – two of the biggest shades associated with the festive season. To achieve this brilliant eye makeup look, you’ll need to start with a primer – this is important to make sure your eye makeup doesn’t move at all. Glitter has a habit of getting everywhere, so make sure you apply / hold a piece of tissue underneath the eye so you can mop up any spills. You could also consider putting translucent powder down, and then brushing it all away, with the excess glitter, when you’re all done.

The smokey eye look is a favourite among the festive season, because it goes with practically every party outfit you could think of. The one thing we don’t appreciate, however, is removing the smokey eye makeup the next morning … because you know we won’t remember to do it before we go to sleep that night! Here’s a great tip if you’re having a hard time removing old makeup, and it’s super good for your face too! Coconut oil is not only a great makeup remover when used with a cotton wool ball or pad, but it also nourishes and hydrates your face, all at the same time!
