It was indeed a glittering X Factor final, not least as far as the judges were concerned, with Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue both layering on sparkly make-up to dazzle the cameras on television’s biggest night of the year.
It’s the perfect look to replicate for the party season. And it’s surprisingly easy to create, without any complicated techniques, because we’ve found the hero product that will give you Cheryl’s attention grabbing in two easy steps.
It’s MEMEME’s Bronze Jewel Eye Pots in Bronze, £6.99, which comes with a cream-based eyeshadow and one full of glitter that sticks to the eyeshadow for full-on Cheryl-style glamour.
Line the lower lid with a matching shade of eyeliner for balance, but pare down the rest of your face so you don't end up looking like a drag queen – the key with glitter is to focus on one feature only. And keep your finishes matte; shiny skin and glossy lips attract the light to fight with sparkly eyes.
If you can, keep a couple of cotton buds and a travel sized hand cream in your bag so you can gently wipe away any glitter that falls onto your face without rubbing away your make-up.
