Do you have a holiday party every other day and only one LBD? Switch your eyeshadow look to show a different style of beauty with minimal effort (and $$$). Sure, you can opt for a festive red lip (these holiday lipstick shades are a must) – but why should you take a colorful lip when you know you eat, drink, kiss (hello, mistletoe!) And wipe it off sometime in the night?
Instead, shift your focus and do everything with your eye make-up. These three eyeshadow looks will make your eyes open for your next Christmas party.
Be subtle or sensational: tap your eyelids with clear luster (try Milk Makeup Face Gloss, 20 USD), and they will reflect in the eyelids light for a fresh, glowing effect , Apply this shine to a vivid cream shade, such as: For example, NYX Professional makeup Vivid Bright's Crème Color in Love Overdose ($ 10), for much more attention, says makeup artist Jenny Patinkin. But you know that the shine tends to wrinkle and to move. "Dope with your finger," says Patinkin. "The look should not be accurate." (Related: Best Christmas Gifts for Beauty Junkies)
For full intensity, moisten the brush before swirling it in one of those dazzling shades. Try the undone Beauty Smoke Palette ($ 14).
A touch of brightness in the inner corners of the eyes helps to bring out the fullness of your face, says Patinkin. Anyone, regardless of age, eye shape or color or skin type, can and should rock it, she says. Apply a shimmering shade – white, cream, gold and copper are generally flattering, but a trendy hue like violets is also fun – in a side V with a small eye shadow brush (she recommends her Jenny Patinkin Luxury Vegan Line / Smudge Brush, 18 $). Spread two layers of black mascara for the definition and rosy rouge and lip gloss for a healthy conditioner. Finito!

Try Throwing Guilty Glittery Glass Hourglass Eyeshadow Lashes ($ 29) Lash Line is more than just a cool, pervasive one Trend. "When you draw a thick, strong punch under the eyes, you immediately double the look of their size," says Patinkin. Look for a waxy, non-shimmering eyeliner pencil in a bold hue like emerald, cobalt or even burgundy. Opt for a waterproof version if your eye make-up always blurs, adds Patinkin. Pass it over your lower eyelash line and thicken the shape with each additional stroke. This is the star of your show, says Patinkin – the rest of your make-up is there to support it. Therefore keep the mascara discreetly and wear a lipstick in a soft pink or nude color. (See also: 3 Eyeshadows with high impact seem to try this winter)
