Sparkle and shine

Grace Sweeney

Get in the Christmas spirit by adding some sparkle to your eyes.

Christmas time is the perfect excuse to add a little glitz to your look so as the Christmas party season fast approaches it’s time to get your brushes out and start practicing a sparkly eye.

A black and glittery gold eye is a popular look for the holidays and goes perfectly with a red lip.

For this look, start by priming your eyelids for a smooth base and then apply a black shadow to your eyelids as far as the brow bone.

Using a clean and fluffy brush, apply your glittery gold shadow over the eyelids from the lash line to the brow bone.

Finish this look by blending the black and gold towards your natural crease and by adding some black mascara.

If gold is not your colour, try a sparkly smokey eye instead.

Again, you want a smooth base to work with so start by priming the eyelids.

Then take a dark brown shadow and blend over the lids.

Next use a sparkly silver shadow like the Urban Decay Mono Moondust eyeshadow and apply to the eyelids from the lash line to the brow bone.

To complete this look, why not add a wing using black eyeliner?

And don’t forget to add mascara!
