The beaut @ccclarke lo

dzxcfszccdxoks unreal (always), and we love this simple look thanks so its focus on highlighter. Want to get the look yourself? Look for highlighter that are easily blendable. Whether you’ve got more kill with powder or liquid, time to wait for the dewy dumpling compliments to roll in,

We’ve selected the Solstice Sleek highlighter palette (and easily one of the best Sleek products) as it has four shades to blend in one easy palette. Add to the mix options from Barry M and high end Illamasqua, and you’ve got everything you’ll ever need to look lit this season.

Graphic Eyeliner

Pro MUA Val Garland is givin’ us all the festive feels with this beaut deconstructed eyeliner look – glitter (sort of) optional. Recreate this style by using one of our fave products from brands like EyekoStila and Rimmel.


Tamara Williams captures this look by Hung Vanngo, which is already on every single one of our Christmas makeup looks Pinterest boards already. If you’re not blessed in the skin department and are looking to recreate these freckles, we’ve dropped some of our fave products below – the Lime Crime Bushy Brow Pen is our current number one!

Shimmer Eyeliner

For some high impact intergalactic lines, we’re using the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Bronzebeam, and the New CID Cosmetics I-Colour Longwear Cream Eyeshadow applied with a Real Techniques Angled Liner Brush.

Metallic Lips

Metallic lipstick is one of the ultimate Christmas  makeup looks we’ve seen doing the rounds on the ‘gram this year. Metallic lips might seam harder to pull off, but with the right attitude you can pull anything off! We’re really into options by Lottie London and Barry M – so even if you don’t wear it every day you won’t be making yourself skint.

For added shine, it’s all about lip gloss. Right now we’re head over heels, (or space boots) for the Lipstick Queen Lip Gloss in Altered Universe Time Warp

Soft Pastels

For pretty pastel lips, we’re using the Sleek Makeup Lip Shot in Brutal Honesty, a beautiful pale pink shade. Hues of blue and purple are making a statement too, and the Bellapierre Cosmetics Shimmer 9Stack in Pandera has some stunning shades, with icy shimmer to add extra sparkle. We’re using Cover FX Shimmer Veil in Halo for added highlight on the inner corners of the eye and even to dust along the cheekbones as a highlighter!

When in doubt: add glitter. I'm obsessed with shimmer eyeshadows and always layer up my highlighter.
