Making your Makeup look Festive on a Budget-Blogmas Day 20

Sunday, 20 December 2015

I feel like Christmas is the perfect time of year to add that little bit more oomph to your makeup look and outfits, especially when you are going out to parties and meals. It seems like everyone is buying all manner of makeup bits and bobs to add more glitz and glamour to their looks, when in reality, most people can't afford to go out and buy all of those new products...

Therefore, today I thought I would share with you the three (yes, just three) products that I would, and will use to add a bit more glitter to my look-and guess what? They won't break your budget either, as altogether actually cost under £10!


A red lip adds definition to any makeup look, and will be the perfect finishing touch to your Christmas look. This particular lip product is from Soap&Glory and is only £3.50!-such a cheap price considering the quality of the Soap&Glory products and the fact that you can re-use this lipstick after Christmas too!


Adding a bit of glitter to the eyes, is also the perfect way to step up the festive feel to your makeup. I wouldn't recommend going to overboard with the sparkle though (it definitely won't be any fun having glitter in your eyes all day/night), so I would just dot some in the inner corner of my eyes, or the outer corner by my black eyeliner flick. Again, this Collection eyeliner dirt cheap at only £2.99, which means that if you do only use it for a few special occasions you haven't really wasted your money!


The final product I would use to add some cosmetic glitz at Christmas, is a glittery nail polish. I own all too many nail polishes (especially sparkly ones), but this one is a particular favourite of mine due to its red and gold flecks which just scream Christmas! This Barry M nail polish is fantastic quality (as are all of their products) and is only £3.99!!

Hopefully this post provided a bit of assistance to any of you, who like myself, want to step up their festive makeup game this year...
