A fab fes­tive look that will put a twin­kle in your eye

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s be­gin­ning to look a lot like Christmas. Win­dows full of twin­kling lights and rosy cheeks aglow.

And I have the per­fect look to sprin­kle a lit­tle fes­tive magic on your party look and put a twin­kle in your eye for your Christmas bash.

I al­ways love dis­cov­er­ing new prod­ucts that not only look gor­geous but, more im­por­tantly, per­form as well as you hope – es­pe­cially when they have last­ing power.

I’ve al­ways loved Stila prod­ucts so when I stum­bled across one of their coun­ters in the M&S at Brae­head, my eyes were im­me­di­ately drawn to their stun­ning col­lec­tion of liquid shad­ows.

Over the years I have seen a mil­lion glit­ter shad­ows but have al­ways felt let down when I’ve tried them.

They are ei­ther too wa­tery and not rich enough in pig­ment or they just don’t last the dis­tance.

How­ever, that’s not the case with these amaz­ing Stila shad­ows and they’re the per­fect ad­di­tion for your fes­tive look.

There is such a wide range of colours – nine in fact – that I strug­gled to pick a favourite.

There is a sil­ver, rose gold, gold, bronze, pink and a black one ... which I LOVE!

They give such a solid colour, not a transparent ver­sion, so 10 out of 10 Stila.

The other great thing is that you can cre­ate a few dif­fer­ent looks with them.

The black can be traced along the lash line for a su­per glitzy liquid liner ef­fect, or as a sold black glit­tery shadow.

The other colours are more wear­able if you don’t want to go quite as bold and dark.

You can ei­ther dot them on top of your eye shadow in the cen­tre of the lid to add some sparkle, or at­tempt the “cut crease” look. It’s far eas­ier than it looks.

Darken your crease with your choice of shadow. eg. you could opt for a dark plum tone.

Blend it out and darken the cor­ners. There’s no need to be pre­cise as the liquid shadow is go­ing to do the job for you.

The idea here is to have a very sharp line sep­a­rat­ing the dark shadow from the sparkle. Not the usual soft blend.

Us­ing the ap­pli­ca­tor in the bot­tle, trace into the crease of your eyes and lid with the liquid shadow to cre­ate that sharp line.

Rose gold looks beau­ti­ful with the plum tones in the crease and outer cor­ners.

It’s so easy to ap­ply so it will give a nice even fin­ish. Use plenty for a su­per shiny fin­ish.

Ap­ply liquid or gel liner to the up­per lash line and mascara and/or lashes to pol­ish off the look.

I tried it for a night out and it didn’t fade or crease. It stayed su­per shiny all night and that’s just want you want if you want to truly sparkle this Christmas.
