Glitter a top eye makeup trend for Christmas

Glitter a top eye makeup trend for Christmas

With the festive season just around the corner, glitter is the top trend for eye makeup at Christmas parties.

Writing for the Daily Mail, celebrity makeup artist Jemma Kidd says that gold and silver glittery eyeshadows are "stunning" for office or family events.

Or, for anyone reluctant to wear too much sparkle, the cosmetics expert suggests trying a shade which contrasts with the colour of your eyes, noting that bright blue and teal are great with brown eyes, while brown and gold extenuate blue eyes and purple complements green eyes.

Jemma also advises keeping cheeks and lips natural if you are opting for full-on glittery eyes and suggests adding some false lashes near the corners of the eye to really make them stand out.

Statement eye makeup can be a great way to liven up a simple dress if going to an office Christmas party straight from work.

Smokey or sparkling eyes with false lashes can glam up any ensemble.
