‘Tis Season to Serve Looks
We want to bring out the classic holiday belle in you with these glamorous styles! You can’t deny that almost anything looks good with diamonds, especially some fierce eye makeup.
If you love all the attention on your lips, then all you need is some golden shadows and face shimmer for this one! You want to keep it glowy by applying some gold or champagne highlighter on the high points of your face and on your cupid’s bow and inner corners. Use your favorite gold or peachy shimmer shadow on your lids and blend up near your brow bone. You want to keep it more on the natural side. Complete with a set of thick brows and your favorite red lip.
Blue shadow and a red lip is the original bold! This season we wanted to bring back something iconic but perfect for parties. Use a light blue shadow such as one from NARS’s Single Shadows or e.l.f.’s fierce blue eyeshadow palette. The primary part of the eye makeup is not just the color, but the shape it is applied. You want it to be in a big cat-eye type of shape, near your brow bone but not touching it. Blend the edges to make it less harsh, but still defined. Add a touch of gold shadow below your eyes and in the inner corners for more definition. Finish with a more burgundy brick red to tie everything together with those diamonds.
We often overlook the power of purple when it comes to a statement look! To achieve this look, grab some purple shadows like the ones from Huda Beauty’s Amethyst palette. Start with a darker matte shade to map out the color. You want it to hit a little above your crease and round out on the outer corners of your eyes.Bring a slightly lighter purple to the lower lash line, stopping midway. You can use a shimmer shade on the center of the top lid and on the rest of the lower lash line! This all brings dimension to the eye while keeping the drama from the bold purple. Instead of classic red lip, stick to the theme and use a darker plum color or a berry toned red lip!
