Don’t underestimate the importance of high shimmer during the holidays!


When it comes to beauty, the holidays are the most fun and festive time of the year! Who can resist a set of flirty lashes, glittery lids or a pair of cherry red lips? For the holidays, I usually like to go with warmer colors like gold, but this time I’m taking an icy approach to my holiday look.  So, today we’re heading into winter with a glittering and sparkling inspiration. The holidays never looked so fierce!

The holiday season is in full swing and what better way to celebrate than to get Holiday Glamorous! Brides always ask me how to use makeup to add much a pop to their eyes.  If you look closely at pictures of your favorite celebrities you’ll notice that often the inner corner of the eye has been highlighted with a light or shimmery shadow shade. This is a great trick for a holiday glam event.

Another way to get holiday glamorous eyes is by incorporating some snowy, shimmer white shadows into your makeup look. White opens up the eye area, looks clean and bright, and even makes eyes look bigger and more wide awake.  The cool colors of this white winter makeup create an aura of enchantment. Aim for simplicity with just one or two icy, sparkly colors dusted lightly over your lids and the inner corner of your eyes. Imagine a million sparkling stars in a clear winter sky. Combine it with a sparkly nude eyeshadow, perfect for winter evening events when you want a subtle, champagne sparkle. This eye look is as fresh as the fallen snow!

While holiday looks often feature shimmery metallics, you shouldn’t forget the beautiful pure white of winter when looking for holiday makeup inspiration!

Step-by-step directions for  this snowy, shimmering eye makeup look:

  • Apply a white cream shadow like Shiseido’s Mist Pearl, a radiant, lustrous finish and lightweight cream   eye shadow
  • Blend a white shadow like Snowflake, a pure pigment mineral shimmer by Vasanti over the cream shadow for a fine iridescent silver sparkle.
  • Place a gunmetal color like Slate from the LORAC Pro Palette at the outer corner of the eye with a small brush and use a blending brush to blend color inwards
  • Line the inner rim of the eye with a white pencil liner such as the Sephora Nano Liner in White.
  • Line the top with MAC Pisces Persuasion Superslick Eyeliner; it’s a shimmery white with a frost finish
  • Apply mascara to the bottom lashes.
  • Place individual false lashes, bedazzled if you like, along the top lash line, with rhinestone gems

Sending you our sincerest wishes for hope, health and happiness during this Holiday Season and prosperity in the New Year.
