Yes it's that time of year again. Christmas officially began in November this year whether we liked it or not. It makes a change from September though and we can thank a rise in the commercialism of Halloween for that!
For me winter is all about that glow so here are just a few examples of how to achieve that in these dull, grey, wintery months.
TAM beauty are killing the budget makeup game at the moment and these baked highlighters from their I Heart Makeup range are superb. I mean... look at it! This Unicorns Heart highlight is basic unicorn rainbow perfection and a proper steal at a fiver. Your unicorn obsessed buddies will love you forever if you gift them this beauty and for your more subtle chums there is the Goddess of Love highlight which offers a lovely peachy gold glow perfect for the day time.
Speaking of goddesses, for a more subtle glow I turn to Cocoa Brown for their Golden and Rose Gold Goddess shimmer oils. Yes these can be used as a full on body shimmer or a facial highlighter if you really want to shine out but I prefer to squeeze a pump in with my foundation which adds a wonderful healthiness to my pale skin colouring and the coconut oil makes sure my skin doesn't dry out too much. Now I'm just praying that they bringing their silvery Ice Goddess as a solo product so I can complete my collection!

Another TAM beauty here with the Makeup Revolution Radiance Palette. This is an oldie but it's definitely a goodie. Perfect for those who like to dip their brushes in more than one pan you can mix and match your highlights here to create your own unique glow.
And yes I did say we were loving our skin too didn't I? To fit with the glow theme the obvious choice would have been Pixi Beauty's Glow Tonic, and yes it is wonderful, but we're getting older, dear readers, and so I'm upping the game a bit. Alpha H Liquid Gold is the next level of acid based skin care and will leave your skin exfoliated and glowing. And it's totally gold so that's Christmassy... right?!
