Go For a Smokey Eye

If you like to play it safe with your eye makeup but really want to step it up a notch this holiday season, a smokey eye is the best tool in your arsenal for a party-ready look. For blue eyes, stick to gold and rust colored shadows to make your eyes pop, for green eyes you can play around with plums and amethysts, and for brown eyes you can use blue hues but really any color will work for this eye color so you have some flexibility. Depending on your comfort level, you can add a wing with liquid liner, or keep it low-key and use a simple shadow stick that you can blend out with your finger. If you really want to make your eyes festive, you can even use a glitter liner (liquid or pencil) to give your eyes some added sparkle. One thing you should never leave home without: mascara! Apply 2-3 coats on your top lashes and dust your bottom lashes as well to make your eyes look wide open and complete your look.
