Holiday Party Eye Makeup – Get Gold, Smokey Eyes


Need some eye makeup inspiration? When it comes to the holidays, many of us plan our style and beauty looks well in advance. For those of you that need some holiday makeup inspiration, we highly recommend a gold, smokey eye look. Sexy, but subtle, it’s suitable for any special event that you might find yourself at this season.

Gold makeup looks great on most people and compliments many skin tones. Apply shadows and liners with a light hand and add more as needed (it’s easier to add product than take away product). Make sure your brows are neat and groomed in order to keep the focus on your eyes. Be mindful of other colours used on the face; try to keep cheeks and lips more neutral and soft. Use highlighter sparingly.
