All that glitters… dazzling makeup for Bonfire Night!

Remember, remember, the 5th of November… and remember, Guy Fawkes Night is the perfect excuse to wear dazzling make-up!

From sooty eyeshadows to shimmering powders (that’s face powder by the way, not gunpowder) get ready for some Bonfire beauty with these smokin’ hot products…

For toffee-glazed lips, try Mii Shimmering Lip Sheen in Tantalize 05; this sugary-tasting gloss makes your mouth look good enough to eat. Or, create an explosive red pout with MAC’s Marilyn Monroe lipstick in Scarlet Ibis. Its orange hue is bound to give your lips a fiery edge.

Rosy cheeks are synonymous with chilly nights and cosy flames, so for a gentle burn, choose Hervana blusher by Benefit, £23.50. The product, whose palette resembles a swirling Catherine Wheel, is a top-seller and comes in a charming blend of four different colours. As the blusher’s tagline goes, ‘What comes around goes around!’

Fireworks aren’t the only things that need light up the sky this evening. Set your eyes ablaze with Estee Lauder’s Pure Colour Eyeshadow in Sizzling Copper Metallic, £16.50. Alternatively, make your eyes smoulder with a coal-like eyeshadow. My go-to shade for smokey eyes is Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Eyeshadow in Black Crystals Metallic, £16.50.

If you’re after a warm glow, brighten your brow bones with Benefit’s Sun Beam, a golden bronze highlighter costing £18.50. For a shimmery finish, sweep Soap and Glory’s Glow All Out Luminizing Face Powder, £11 across your cheekbones.

Glitter Nail Paint - Jewel Britannia

Oh and if you’re not too keen on playing with sparklers, adorn your nails with one of Barry M’s Glitter Nail Paints. It’s a surefire way to make your hands sparkle without running the risk of burning your fingers.

My favourites are the luxurious looking Gold Glitter, the ultra-shimmery Hologram Hexograms, and the iridescent Jewel Britannia – all a mere £2.99 each!

Happy Bonfire Night everyone, and remember – don’t step too close to the flames. You wouldn’t want your make up to melt now, would you?!
