Three products to add a subtle Christmas sparkle to your beauty look

When it comes to festive beauty, there are two types of people in the world: those who don Christmas tree earrings, Santa-red lipstick and sparkly, gold eyeshadow from 1st November; and those who prefer the more subtle approach. If you’re firmly set on the latter, the following three products are must-buys.

Each of these products can add a subtle Christmas sparkle to your beauty look, without going overboard. What’s more, they’re all included in Boots’ latest 3 for 2 offer, meaning the cheapest one is free.

No7 Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow

First up is the No7 Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow in ‘Rose Golds’ (€13 from Boots). These warm shades have a subtle shimmer, but aren’t overly glittery. The handbag-friendly sized palette can be used in three ways, depending on how dramatic you want your eye look to be. No7 made application easy, with each shade numbered for convenience.

To create a simple look and brighten the eye area, use ‘shade one’ from your lashline to your brow. For greater definition, add ‘shade two’ along the lash line as an eyeliner. If you feel up to it, use ‘shade three’ along the crease to create a fully-rounded party look.

Complete with a flick of your favourite mascara.

 

Sleek MakeUP Cleopatra’s Kiss Highlighting Palette

Next up is the Sleek MakeUP Cleopatra’s Kiss Highlighting Palette (€14.49 from Boots). Packaged in a pretty gold compact with a mirror and powder brush, this palette includes two baked powders and two luxurious cream formulas, all of which can be used on both the face and body.

The cream highlights create a luminous sheen; instantly brightening your skin on dark, winter days. The powders create a more intense metallic finish, ideal for a Christmas party glow. Apply your chosen highlight along the cheekbones, bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow, and on the centre of your eyelid for radiance that isn’t overwhelming. 

No7 Matte Liquid Lips

Finally, add a touch of Christmas cheer to your lips with the No7 Matte Liquid Lips in shade ‘Victory’ (€11.75 from Boots). The moisture-rich formula glides on in one stroke, delivering high-impact matte lips that last up to eight hours. The lipstick is non-drying, so there’s no need to use a balm underneath.

This lip colour is perfect for anyone who’d rather steer clear of vibrant ‘Santa-reds’. This burgundy-toned No7 option allows you to embrace festive hues without venturing outside your comfort zone.
