The Festive Beauty Edit
All That Glitters
While Christmas shopping this year, I have found myself wandering through the beauty aisles of the department stores, totally mesmerised by the stunning Christmas products that are displayed. Sparkling from the reflections of twinkling fairy lights, it’s impossible to walk on by.
This edit is full of my favourite festive ‘high end’ beauty products that are available this year. There are a variety of palettes, highlighters, lip colours and nail varnishes that I have completely fallen in love with.
These are brilliant to buy as a gift for someone, but even better as a special Christmas treat to yourself.

1. Charlotte Tilbury
The combination of matte and sparkly shades means you can create a variety of different looks depending on the time of day and the occasion. I have been using the ‘Day Eye’ trio as my go-to daytime look and the ‘Date Eye’ for festive parties.
2. Bobbi Brown
Caviar & Rubies Eye Shadow Palette* [limited edition]
This eye shadow palette is perfect for those nights out in the build up to Christmas and for a new year’s eve party. I love adding a touch of the shimmer and metallic shades to any eye look to take it from day to night.
Highlighting Powder in Moon Glow* [limited edition]
The packaging of these limited edition bobbi brown products are so special and would make a lovely gift to someone. Transform yourself into a golden goddess with this beautiful highlighting powder.
DIORIFIC Precious Rocks Nail Liner* [limited edition]
Rather than a nail varnish, this is a nail liner to decorate your nails to create festive styles. Paint your nails red, and use the liner to draw decorative lines or dots. The contrast between the red and the gold glitter is stunning.
DIORIFIC Rouge Kohl Lipstick* in Intense Garnet [limited edition]
This bold lipstick is definitely one for the Christmas parties! Not for the faint hearted. Wear this colour with confidence and pride!
DIORIFIC Matte Fluid* in Charm [limited edition]
This matte fluid subtly tints the cheeks and lips. It provides a beautiful finish, and I love using the same product for cheeks and lips to provide a natural look.
Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette* [limited edition]
This has been my favourite highlighter throughout this party season. As well as using it on my cheek bones, I like to add a touch to my brow bone, inner corners of my eyes and my cupids bow to brighten and glow.
5. La Mer
The Illuminating Powder* [limited edition]
If you’re more into a subtle and natural glow, the La Mer Illuminating Powder is your new best friend. It’s lightweight yet feels incredibly luxurious.
The Lip Balm* [limited edition]
This subtly tinted lip balm has a velvety formula and will make your lips feel so soft and moisturised.
