The holidays are just around the corner and that means party time! You may already have an outfit picked out but have not a clue what to put on your face. That’s where I come in!

Holiday makeup

When I think of holiday time I think of glitter and shimmer. This is the perfect time of year to experiment! Try playing up a traditional smokey eye with a hint of glitter shadow or liner in the crease. I am loving (1) Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Midnight Cowboy and Glamrock. Either one is sure to make your eyes pop.

Shimmer eyeshadow is also a great look to try out this season. Loose shadows are best because you can decide how much you want to apply. Try (2) NYX Loose Pearl Eye Shadow! It comes in over 20 colors so you really can’t go wrong. Go it alone or layer on top of matte shadow for a more dramatic look.

I have recently fallen in love with a new eyeshadow palette! MAC introduced a line of three eye kits in their (3) Stroke of Midnight collection, and while they are a bit pricey you get your fair share of eyeshadow. Each kit comes with five shadows which typically run for $15 a pop so you’re definitely saving some money. The “Cool” eye kit is great for the holidays with its soft purple shades.

While I think eyes are the most fun to play up for the holidays don’t be afraid to sport a hot red lip either! Check out my post on how to wear red lipstick for great tips on achieving this look.

Another favorite product of mine for the holidays is (4) Formula X for Sephora. They have a great selection of glitter-infused colors that are sure to please anyone’s tastes. These polishes are also ideal if you are too shy to wear glitter on your face.

Holiday season is all about getting out of your beauty comfort zone. Who knows maybe you’ll discover a look that you want to recreate all year long!
