In between family visits and festive parties I thought I would show you how lovely the glitter face decorations look that were only £1.00. Here you can see me with two of my extremely beautiful sisters. Don’t they both look lovely? I will be using these glitter cosmetics along with lots more unusual products that I have found over the coming weeks so I will post some tips on how to stand out with make-up (or face decorating) with a difference.

Out shopping for the last few bits!

I decided that I wanted to brave the crazy crowds to get some bits to make me look more glam tonight when I am out for my Christmas drinks. When it’s this festive time of year I like to wear face jewellery or some crystals to make my look a bit different. I also do the same if I am going to a festival. I have looked online and at professional make-up brands for the same kinds of things and they are very expensive. I know that more often than not you get what you pay for but in this case I don’t think that it matters as I know I only want this look to last a few hours. I plan on being in bed asleep by midnight before Father Christmas does his rounds. Most of what you see is from the £1.00 shop in my local town centre. All is tried and tested and does the job. I have even looked for bindi’s on Ebay and they cost around £5.00 for about 6 very tiny crystals. Instead I use the hand glitter decorations that you can see in the picture. So I am going to get ready and ill show you how it went soon.

So here I have:

Individual eyelashes

Hand glitter decorations

Body glitter decorations

all £1.00 each

How to make Christmas hair pieces

Image

I make something new to wear at Christmas each year. I like to have a little festive hair piece. This is one I made yesterday. They are cheap and easy and they look lovely. I am showing you what I have used but this can be altered. I normally just see what I can find that is cheap.

What you will need:

1. Something with a fine wire running through, the red that is in the picture was about a £1.00 from the market.

2. Some tinsel, I find this works the best with a narrow type as it sits on your head comfortably.

3. Some flowers or bows, I found the flowers on a market stall too, they were ten for £1.00. If you are using flowers it’s best to choose one that already have wire running through them.

Image

Measure the lengths of wire and tinsel around your head and leave an additional 3 cm on each end.

Image

Twist the wire and tinsel together to form a single strand and twist the two ends to form the circle (using the extra 3cms).

Image

Select your desired flowers.

Image

Position your flowers and twist the wire around the circle. Keep adding them until you have the desired effect.
