Makeup Wars: Holiday Eye Look

The holidays are upon us and, with presents to buy and wrap, food to cook, cookies to bake, and travels to make, the last thing on your mind might be what your are going to wear on your face for New Years Eve. This Makeup Wars, we are coming together to bring you a few ideas for your holiday look - whether it's a classic eye with a hot lip, or an all out glitter-fest. This time around, I wanted to play with color AND glitter (say wha?!). Get a step by step of how I make it happen below.

Step 1. Start with a primed eye - I used Senna's Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer
Step 2. Apply a satin cream shadow from the lash line to the crease. All shadows in this look are from my 15 Color Shadow Palette from my December Starlooks Starbox.
Step 3. Apply a frosted white shadow to the inner corner.
Step 4. Use a brush with a tapered tip (mine is Sigma's small tapered blending brush) to apply a matte berry shade in the crease - from the inner corner, to the outer corner.
Step 5. Pat a deep emerald green in the outer corner with a small flat shader brush and blend the edges out.
Step 6. Apply a matte black shadow with a small, precise brush (mine is Tarte's double ended liner brush) to the outer corner to add more depth to the look. Blend into the emerald and crease shade just enough so the colors meld together seamlessly without muddying them.
Step. 7. Line the upper lash line with a glitter base or glitter liner - I used ELF's copper glitter liner.
Step. 8. Pat a loose glitter over the top of glitter base for high impact glitz.
Step 9. Apply mascara.
Steps 10-13. Were accidentally added and I'm too lazy to remove them, but admiring your glitzy look upon completion is encouraged!
