Bling it on

laiafarrangravesbeautyspotWith Christmas around the corner, party make-up is big on the agenda, and if you want to be right on-trend this party season check out the latest craze for blinged-up eyes.

Inspired by Christian Dior’s Spring/Summer 2013 show, where  lead makeup artist Pat McGrath created “techno-butterflies” combining Swarovski crystals over blocks of cream and powder eyeshadow across the lid, the look is femenine but has a rock chick edge to it. You can experiment with different colours and the amount of crystals you want to use to customise your eyes.  I checked out Jinny Rocks, as they have a vast selection of  Body Gems that are truly dazzling and available in a number of colours and shapes – turquoise, red, navy, gold…you name it!
To apply simply add the glue provided to the back of the stone and allow 30 seconds for it to dry and secure in place. It’s surprisingly easy and a creative, fun way to get ready for your Christmas party, adding something extra to your look without spending a fortune. Check out all the different styles at

Each box of rocks, which contains a good handful, is priced at £10.
