From subtle shimmer tofull-on sparklefor a night out, here’s the grown-up way to add a touch of gloss to your winter beauty look
You’ve seen the glossy look on your favourite celebrities, bought the make-up, but worry you’ll end up looking like a disco ball. Don’t panic! From shimmering eyes to glittering lips and gorgeously glowing skin, we’ve got the tips and tricks to make you look like you’ve just struck gold.
THE LOOK Shiny, bouncy hair just looks healthy – and it’s easier to achieve than you might think. It’s quite simple, really: the smoother the surface of the get it squeaky clean with a clarifying shampoo to get rid of build-up. Frizz will put an end to shine, so use a pre-styling dose of anti-frizz, followed by a blow-dry – remember to aim the nozzle downwards you’re after. If you don’t like the poker-straight look, curve the irons as you reach the end of the hair to create some movement that’ll catch the light.

Cheekbones chisels out a new-found bone structure in the same highlighters give you a dewy glow that’s sure to roll back the years. The aim is to add radiance to the areas where light would naturally bounce off your skin. Use either a glow-stick or subtle shimmer powder and apply across the tops of your cheekbones, down the centre of your nose and on your temples.
THE LOOK A glossy eye is totally wearable when you know how – the trick is in the blending. Gently press your metallic or shimmery shadow (stick to soft pinks and neutrals to keep it classy) into place and don’t be too precise – a natural lid is way sexier than a paint-by-numbers perfect one. Gloss rose-gold or taupe shadow, then dab a clear balm on top.
THE LOOK Last year was all about the matte lip but now it’s time to bring back shine! A pearly sheen creates the illusion of fuller lips. For a pout-plumping glimmer, start with a moisturising lip balm and a pretty nude lipstick with a satiny sticking to nude tones. Now add a layer of high-glitter gloss, dabbing it on the centre of your.
Sheen queen Do you know how experts achieve ultra-glossy hair that lasts? When you are done with heat styling, blast your hair (in the direction of the roots to the tips) with the cool setting on your dryer help reduce dreaded frizz.
Get out the door? Just layer your highlighter over a tinted moisturiser and you’re good to go (or ‘glow’!). If you have dry skin, opt for a creamy formula rather than using a powder, and tap it in gently.
Glossy lids If your eyes are doing the talking then keep the rest of your face simple. When it comes to colour, it’s subtle shimmery nudes, pinks and greys you’re after here – or go all out and use a glittery shadow, but steer clear of the glitter gloss – that’s taking it a step too far!
Shimmer lips First prep your lips with a gentle exfoliator (or can use an old toothbrush) to remove chapped skin. Then, to make in your lips with a nude pencil before applying lipstick. Dab a bit of highlighter on your Cupid’s bow to give your lips even more of a glow.
