Hello Dolls!

It's November and the holidays are right around the corner! I wanted to create a festive look that can be worn in two ways: with minimal shimmer and with lots of glitter!

This look can be created using any eyeshadow colors so it's simple to take a look from day to night. Of course, I used bold colors to begin with, but you can most definitely begin with a neutral day palette.


Here's the look without the glitter:

Here's the look with the glitter:


  • NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk
  • MAC Kohl Pencil Black
  • Dill Cosmetics Blue Pigment
  • Dill Cosmetics Violet Pigment
  • Impala Black Eyeliner
  • Urban Decay Ammo Palette (Oil Slick-black eyeshadow)
  • False Eyelashes
  • Eye Kandy Cosmetics Glitter
  • Maybelline Volum' Express Rocket Mascara


  • Apply a white base over entire eyelids. I used NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk.
  • Using a black eyeliner, trace the outer edges of the crease, creating this "c" shape.
  • Then take a black eyeshadow and blend the black pencil outwards creating a smokey effect.
  • Now apply a cobalt blue eyeshadow to the outer half of the lid.
  • Apply a lilac eyeshadow to the center and a fuchsia to the inner corner. This will create a beautiful gradient effect.
  • Apply black eyeliner to the upper and lower lashline.
  • Smudge a shimmery purple to the lower lashline for a hint of subtle shimmer.
  • Finish with mascara and false eyelashes!



  • Apply pink glitter to the inner eyelid and also the lower lashline.
  • Apply an iridescent glitter to the center of the eyelid.
  • Apply a dark violet to the outer third of the eyelid.
  • Make sure to reapply black eyeshadow to the crease to create a nice contrast.
  • Embellish the look as you'd like!
