Tis the season to sparkle and you can get added bling to your Christmas party look with some easy-to-use glue-on gems. As seen on The Only Way Is Essex and The X Factor, gemstones can be used on their own or in a cluster for a dramatic make-up look.
FrontCover's A Billion Stars, £35, available at Boots, contains four types of eyeshadow, pots of glitter, pigment colours and silver stars for create-at-home catwalk looks.
Kitty Brucknell's X Factor look at the weekend featured shimmer and stars, and the FrontCover team have put together a how-to guide.
Apply Shadowbase over the eyelid up to the browbone. Scoop a few silver stars of the pot and lay on a dressing table or desk. Press one at a time onto your finger. Dab a tiny amount of Eye Effects Glue onto the star and wait a few seconds for the glue to go tacky.
Press onto the browbone and temples, then scatter a few down onto your cheekbones.
For a finishing touch, dot one into each inner corner of your eyes, alongside the nose. Apply your favourite mascara or false lashes to complete the look.
