Take your festive look to dazzling new heights as the experts reveal how to use cosmic colour like a true professional... 

Intergalactic Eyes 

Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow dresses your lids in a shimmery pop of champagne gold. 

Sascha, lead makeup artist at Stila, says: “To add a touch of starry-eyed sparkle to your look, apply to your lid and blend using your fingers or a brush. Wear alone or over eye shadow.” 

Disco Talons 

Flecked with cosmic colour, Mavala Night Fever Nail Polish finishes any look with out-of-this-world flare. 

Lynn, national sales manager at Mavala, says: “Apply a first coat of white, then a thin layer of night fever to give nails a galaxy effect.”

Glitzy Lips 

Take your pout from desk to dancefloor with this Ciaté Glitter Flip Liquid Lipstick, transforming to an eye-catching glitter finish. 

Debra, global education director at Ciaté, says: “Always wait for about 90 seconds for the product to fully dry before rubbing your lips together!”  

Shimmery Skin 

Illamasqua Beyond Powder in ‘OMG’ spotlights your cheekbones with a sweep of dazzling dimension. 

Melanie, head of content at Illamasqua, says: “Use a blusher brush for a soft ethereal glow. Team with a small fluffy eye shadow brush for a more precise, strobed affect.” 

Master Metallics

Explore new galaxies with Urban Decay Mono Moondust in ‘Half Baked’, enhancing any look with celestial sparkle. 

Hannah, pro artist at Urban Decay, says: “Buff with a brush for a soft wet-look lid, or apply with your finger instead for intense shimmer.” 

Luminous Lids

Anastasia Beverly Hills Nouveau Palette casts cosmic colour across your lids for impressive, intergalactic results. 

Talia, executive director of education at Anastasia Beverly Hills, says: “Apply matte shades first and then layer metallic shades to build dimension.”
