Christmas Party Make up at The Gypsy Shrine!

Missed out on festival glitter looks over the summer? well, you're in luck as The Gyspy Shrine is back for Christmas party looks that promise glitter, gems and sparkles galore.

Its been another busy weekend for me for the start of December as this week I headed to London for a Christmas party!

Not content with goin for just an LBD and contouring my face, I decided to once again go for a new look. I'm not much of a party animal so its a once a year thing that I get to have a night out so its an opportunity not to be wasted! I always like to theme my party looks each year and create something unique and fun that will last whilst I'm on the dance floor

This year, I spotted that festival make up faves The Gypsy Shrine were doing pop ups in Topshop Oxford Circus, happening to be on the dates I was in the capital - yes!

So this year I went for a high shine metallics look with a glitter make over with The Gypsy Shrine. It was the perfect match for my metallic dress I wore!

For £10 you can go for a glitter look of your choice or if you want gems as well it will cost around £20. I went for the £20 option as wanted to go for something elaborate as well as treat myself!

Before you go, I'd recommend doing your foundation base as this is not applied for you, the girls do glitter make up only :) I then finished off the look with a slick of mascara, white eyeliner and lippy :)

You can choose from a mix and match of glitters and colours to go with whatever style or look you are looking for, I went for a mix of silvers, blues and a couple of pink, purple and silver gem with a mix of fine and chunky glitter.

The girls were lovely and started working their magic with the glitters, they were really good at understanding what look it was I was after and were finished in just under 10 mins or so!

It would of easily taken me over 40 mins to an hour to achieve this look on my own (and would be no where near as good as these girls can do it, these are festival and party make up pros!)

Here's the finished look!

My glitter stayed put and didn't budge all night. Compared to the usual self adhesive gem ones I have bought that seem to barely last me a day I think I will def try these again as the adhesive mixture holds the glitter and gems in place so much better. I didn't lose any of my gems and the glitter lasted all night.

I was so sad to take it off!

Wanna Find the Shrine? 

The Gyspy Shrine pop up is not a permanent feature in Topshop so if you want to get glittered up for your party you will need to get there sharpish! It is a drop in service so there is no need to book an appointment, we were there mid Saturday afternoon and it was quiet so we were seen to straight away, however I imagine it will be busier just after 5pm, earlier in the morning or on New Years as they will be back during the day for NYE glitter looks! 

They are in Topshop Oxofrd Circus London every Thurs, Friday and Saturday until the 17th Dec and during the day of the 30th. 

So get down there this week if you can for your party make up! 

Love, Sarah x
