Let It Shine With Shimmery Eye Shadows for the Holidays

The Holidays are right around the corner and if you’re swamped with work (like me), you may not have enough time to shop around for the perfect, merry look. So, if you’re stuck in the office and need a quick party ready fix, go for the old faithful – a little black dress and some shimmery gold, green or gun metal eye shadow across the lids from the lash line to the crease. The effect is fun, festive and ready to spread some serious Holiday cheer!

Perfect Example – Olivia Wilde’s shimmery green smoked out eye. It will be the perfect complement to the little black dress that will make you look festive and super-sexy at the same time. Plus, it’s super easy because the trick to the look is to make it look smudgy. Just apply your eyeshadow to the lower eyelid with a darker, greyish shade in the crease. Some great festive eye shadows to try out are:

  • Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta
  • Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Silk Eye Shadow in #16
  • L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald
  • MAC Pressed Pigment in Blonde Streak.


You can either let the eye shadow do the talking and finish with a little black eyeliner and mascara, or you can smoke out the eye like Olivia Wilde for a more stunning, sexy effect. To do this just use a kohl eyeliner like Sephora Collection Smoky Grey amd line the top eyelid being sure to smudge and keep it soft. Trace over the lower lash line using the same technique. Use a Q-tip to smudge the eyeliner. Apply lots of macara and voila!
