Festive holiday eye makeup tutorial

December 8, 2015
We’re officially counting down to Christmas, so I figured that I better throw in some easy-to-create festive beauty looks for you! This is the second of my three Christmas party-ready tutorials.
I’ve already done the makeup base, now here’s for the star of the show – the eyes.  This stunning purple and gold eye makeup tutorial is dramatic enough to transform your look, but seamless enough to blend and flatter any skintone.  I’ve used colours that look great on Asian or dark skin, but this look would also be great for those with pale skin.  The trick to this festive makeup look is to keep the rest of the face clean and simple, with pared down cheeks and lips,  and a bright base.
And of course, it’s all done in real time in under ten minutes – for both eyes!  For a look this fuss-free and easy, it’s something you’ll want to recreate beyond Christmas and the festive party season.
