Glam makeup comes in many different forms but it always means the same thing - pushing the boat out. And what better time of year to do it than Christmas? Party season is in full swing now which means we can all get creative with our makeup. And, more importantly, legitimately play around with glitter.

You know we love nothing better than a beautiful, natural makeup here at Beaut HQ. But let's leave all that until January, shall we? Now, it's time for some shimmer and shine. Bring on the lashes, gloss and highlighter! Here are five glam makeup looks to inspire you for the party season.

All Out Glam

Think Joan Collins in Dynasty for the modern day and you've got this ultra glam makeup look. It's a little '80s, which we love.

Grown Up Glitter Eyes

This was a look I created last year but still love. To create it, I started by buffing out black eyeliner into a smoky eye effect and then pressed on black glitter.

Mixing up the shades you use is always fun this time of year. We love this combination of bronze with green.

Big Lashes

Taking some inspiration from Twiggy, this '60s style lash look isn't too tricky to master. Start by applying eyeliner, then place false strip lashes on the top and lower lashes to finish.

Glitter Lips


Could there be anything more Christmassy than a sparkling lip?
