Add some sparkle to your Christmas Parties with Glitter

It’s that time of year again – the Christmas bells are jingling and it’s party season. This gives you the perfect opportunity to crack out the glitter and enhance any of your Christmas party outfits.

Here at Fun & Glitter, we aren’t scrooges, so in our book, the more glitter the better! We’ve got a fabulous Christmas range to help you get into the festive spirit and we’ve also got all of our usual glitter collections, accessories and face and body glitters.

Add Glitter to any Occasion

One instant way to jazz up any Christmas outfit without much effort is our Christmas glitter tattoo kit. Bring your kit along to any pre-drinks or work Christmas parties and you can transform anyone who you don’t think is Christmassy enough into a more festive version of them self.

There are lots of Christmas designs to choose from and a variety of coloured glitters to use and add some sparkle. Depending on the size of your party, we’ve got lots of different packs to suit the amount of people in the room – if your party’s looking like it’ll be bigger than usual then we have larger glitter tattoo kits.

Fundraising Kits

A great idea for any charity events or fundraising parties you’re organising are our special large fundraising kits. They’re the perfect size for school based events or work fundraisers that need some ideas for extra cash.

Glitter tattoos and stencils are a big hit with kids and big kids alike, so you can raise lots of extra money for charity. Whether you’re putting on a Christmas fete or a school disco, everyone loves glitter, so this is a quick and easy way to create a buzz and get everyone in the Christmas spirit.

Glitter Make-up

We’ve got glitter eye shadows and lip make-up glitters to suit all of your Christmas party outfits. We think our glitter make-up instantly gives you a bit more pizzazz and will fit in well with your Christmas decorations and tinsel!

You can experiment with different shades and use some traditional festive green and red, or gold and silver too. We’ve got a whole range of different colours and tones to choose from. Whenever anything is glittery or sparkly, it becomes the perfect addition to your party outfit.

Make your lips stand out too, they’ll be especially glittery for when you get under the mistletoe and with the bonding glue you’ll get incredible kiss proof glitter lips!

Face-paints

If you’re really going all out at your Christmas party and you want to get a bit more creative or do some fancy dress then you can enlist the help of our glitter face-paints. They’re ideal if you want to use some more complex designs or use on friends before a night out or at a school fundraising event.

Whatever you decide, your glitter face-paint will do the trick and make any Christmas event complete!

How to achieve ‘Halloween Eyes’ with Glitter Eyeshadow

It’s time to get spooky as Halloween is almost here and the ghosts and ghouls are ready to come out and play. The witching hour is quickly approaching, so making sure you look suitably scary in time for October 31st is terrifyingly essential!

What better way to make your Halloween look even more bloodthirsty and fearsome than with some glitter eyeshadow looks for your fright night? We’ve come up with a few ways to use glitter to look extra gruesome.

Pumpkin Spice

Ok, so we’re starting off with something a bit tame and if you’re looking for a pumpkin-inspired costume to wow people with at a party, then we’ve got some autumn colour palettes for you. Obviously you’re going to need something warm, fiery and above all, orange, so the Warm Peach cosmetic glitter is perfect for your pumpkin-esque costume. Everyone loves a bit of pumpkin spice, so dazzle with some orange glitter!

Smokey and Scary

If you’re looking for dark, smokey eye make-up then look no further than our Smokey Quartz cosmetic glitter. When you want to transform into a Halloween witch, a vampire or a member of the walking dead, smokey eyes are a must-have and they can really add to the dead-eyed look you’ll need to scary the living daylights out of anyone. For an even darker look,  add some Black cosmetic glitter into the mix. You can add a bit of extra sparkle too, we think a purple tinge can work really well, so we’d recommend our Mystical cosmetic glitter.

Outer Space

Alien costumes are underrated and the best thing about them is that you can get really creative with your face-paint and costumes. Who knows what aliens really look like after all, so your imagination and glitter can go wild when you’re putting your look together. So, with that in mind, we think that you can use pretty much any of our cosmetic glitter selection to transform into a celestial alien. But a few good picks are Emerald Lights, Golden Eye and Purple Goddess.

Monster Mash

Turning yourself into a Frankenstein’s monster or a wicked witch of the west is more than possible with some of our deep green glittery eye shadows. We’ve got Green Envy to help you become truly monstrous. You can add other shades for a different effect and our colours are great for mixing and matching. Get creative!

Silvery Skeleton

Skeletons are always a popular Halloween costume and you can really show off your make-up and face painting skills when designing your look. Add some sparkle to your skeleton with our Silver Shimmer and use Black glitter to create your effect. You can paint a sugar skull style too and substitute the silver with other colours. Make your eyes dark and use your silver to differentiate the skull-like effect.

We hope you have a terrifying Halloween and we’re sure that your costume will do the trick…or treating. Take a look at the rest of our glitter eyes range for more ideas.
