Glossies, this Bonfire Night we are bringing you makeup looks with a BANG! As winter draws closer and fireworks begin, it’s only right we give you four of the most fabulous sparkling, colourful and autumnal makeup looks to recreate for the occasion.

Bonfire Night Inspired Look Fireworks

Whether you’re throwing a Bonfire Night party or attending a fireworks display, we’ve found the most BANG(ing) products to have you looking better than the night’s sky on November 5th. So, with a spark, let’s get started and ignite your makeup

Look 1: Fireworks!

In the words of Katy Perry ‘baby your a firework, come on let your colours burst’… We’re starting with this bold, colourful look created by @makeupbyabigialemma!

To achieve rainbow-coloured eyes, try the NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette – Brights which costs only £16! Start by taking the lightest yellow colour and applying it onto the base of your eyes then, pack on top the pink shade in the centre of your eye and blue in the outer corner. Finally, using a fluffy brush, make sure to blend all the colours together seamlessly! 

If you are feeling bold and brave and want to draw the fireworks as well, we’ve got the products you need! Using the same eyeshadow palette previously, start by creating circles in the different shades onto your foundation. Next, take the 3INA Makeup The Colour Pen Eyeliner in the shade ‘100 White’ and start drawing thick and thin white lines from the centre. Voila, fireworks!

Look 2: Flames!

It’s not Bonfire Night without an actual burning fire, so why not recreate it on your eyelids! You may recognise @mikalyamakeup from TikTok, who has created a bright orange flaming eye, which captures the essence of fire! 

For only £5.95, you can achieve this combination of bright orange colours and sparkling gold glitter using the Lottie London Laila Love Neon Ibiza Palette! By blending the bright oranges, pinks and yellows you can start to build up the fiery matte pigment on your lid. Then, try adding the orange and silver glitter shades to the inner corner to create a ‘screecher’ of a makeup look. 

To also recreate Mikalya’s soft, smooth skin, use the Maybelline Superstay Active Wear Full Coverage Foundation. At only £8.75, this foundation will keep your skin looking great from morning to night, and the natural-looking base it creates is the ideal companion for your crackling orange eyes!

Look 3: Bonfire Party!

If you’re having a bonfire party this year and looking for something subtle yet still autumnal, this look by @rebeccacapelmakeup is the one for you!

To achieve this look, begin with recreating the gorgeous contour with the ICONIC London Sheer Bronze. Not only does this bronzer help to create defined contour, but it will also have your skin glowing like the sky on fireworks night!

It wouldn’t be an autumnal look without creating a classic glossy red lip either! So, to master Rebecca’s lip yourself, start by using the MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in shade Ruby Woo and then follow this with the £8.99 TikTok famous Maybelline Lifter Gloss Plumping Hydrating Lip Gloss on top. It’ll really add a shine that lasts all night long!

In order to help keep the rest of your look subtle (and not take away from your eyes or lips), keep your brows simple with Soap Brow! Using West Barn Co Soap Brows, start by taking a spoolie and brushing through the hairs with the brow soap. Style your brows in an upwards motion until you achieve your desired effect! Pro tip: If you feel areas in your eyebrows look sparse, use a brow pencil to fill in the gaps!

Look 4: Sparkler!

It’s not the end of Bonfire Night if you haven’t lit a sparkler! So nothing could look better than recreating this silver inspired look created by @ericaswn!

To achieve a sterling silver glossy eye, sweep the Revolution Pro Ultimate Eye Look Wild Onyx Palette onto the lid of your eye and pair it with the incredible Eyeko Galactic Lid Gloss in shade Stardust to add a dewy shiny finish on top. 

To recreate the dark eyeliner in this look, I love the Revolution Awesome Eye Liner Double Flick. For just £3.50, its thick and thin brush tips will add dimension to your eyes! Start by creating a thin black line above your eyelid using the crease of your eye as a guide. Then pair this with a thick classic flick of eyeliner along your lash line. To finish, simply add on a few individual lashes to the bottom of your lashes using the Eylure Individual Lash Combination Pack – Ultra Black. It’ll complete this unique sparkling eye!

Since I started delving into the beauty world at 15, I’ve always found applying makeup or using skincare therapeutic. Whether it’s before work or for an evening out, it brings me a sense of escapism. Having started young, I’ve had my fair share of beauty do’s and dont’s - but beauty has always managed to bring me confidence. Therefore, finding that affordable dupe or drugstore product that looks and feels high-end is one of my favourite feelings!
