Red lipstick is synonymous with the Christmas period, but so is glitter. It’s everywhere. Glitter is in our decorations, it’s in our wardrobes and it is in our makeup bags. Shimmering eyeshadows and lipsticks are common, but there are also a number of skincare products made with glitter that will put you into the festive spirit. Whether you’re looking for a bit of shine or proper sparkle, there is something to suit your every mood.
