There are literally THREE FREAKIN' WEEKS left until Christmas. I am SO excited. I love this time of year and getting into the festive spirit. Today was an even better day because it snowed in London. I hope that it actually snows on Christmas day! so, I've seen so many bloggers Christmas posts and all of them are just amazing and get me super excited. I thought to myself that I haven't even written a proper Christmas post yet so here is my first post.
I've created my own 'Christmas lips' here are the two products I used to get this look:
I got this lip gloss by Artistry in my goodie bag from the Goddiva event last Thursday. I am a big fan of lip glosses but I haven't really been wearing any this winter as lipsticks have really taken my fancy at the moment. At the Pop Couture event I went to a few weeks ago, the makeup artist at the event gave me dark glitter lips and I liked it so I sort of wanted to recreate it on my own.
For the glitter affect I decided to use my Barry M 'Dazzle Dust' even though it's more for the features on your face rather than your lips. Anyone wanting to try this look out I suggest you purchase a glitter that you can use on your lips too, just to be on the safe side. :)
Before applying the dazzle dust, just the lip gloss on my lips:
I absolutely love this lip gloss. It isn't too much on the lips and even though you can't see properly in the photos it does have bits of glitter in it but obviously I wanted to add something more so that's why I added more glitter.
After applying dazzle dust to the lip gloss:
I really didn't think it would turn out like this, I really do love it. It turned into a gold colour and I think this would be perfect for Christmas parities and Christmas day. It's literally so simple to recreate this look!
Artistry - Raspberry Sparkle Lip Gloss £18.95
Barry M - Gold Iridescent Dazzle Dust £4.59
I know that the lip gloss is expensive but it has such great lasting power and it really does give your lips such a great shine. Obviously there are other alternatives, just go to a local store or look online and find a good lip gloss. I'd say red/nude colours will really help to bring out the best in the glitter.
What do you think of my lips?
