From timeless neutrals to bold statement colours, sparkling shades are the key to ladylike glamour this festive season.

Whether you add just a hint or a whole lot of sparkle, shimmering shades add instant sophistication to your festive style. 

"For holiday parties and celebrations, opt for classic cocktail attire and let your face and nails do the talking. Sparkling lips and nails or shimmering cat eyes can easily transform your whole look - makeup is the new fashion accessory," explains Oriflame's Global Head of Editorial Anna Blom. Be the belle of the ball this party season with three of the hottest sparkle trends.

Gold Focus 

For an understated yet altogether elegant look, sweep your lids in champagne eye shadow and treat your lips to a seductive shimmering lipstick. Accentuate your features with a light dusting of bronzing pearls for an instant radiant glow, and complete the look with a subtle shade of glistening nail polish. 

Bold Blocks 

For a glamorous spin on the popular graphic eyeliner trend, emphasise your eyes with strong sharp lines in sparkling metallic colours. If you're feeling adventurous, opt for a striking silver shade or an alluring midnight blue. 

Colour Combinations 

Statement eyes in combination colours make for the perfect party look. This trend is all about experimentation so play around and discover the shades that work for you. Dress up your nails in sparkle tones for added glitz and glamour. Complete the look with a shimmering perfume for a divine scent and a subtle glow.
