Nothings screams “Merry Christmas” more than green and glitter, and this year, my holiday makeup look incorporates both. I typically avoid anything other than neutrals, but this shimmery green halo eye is beautifully subtle.
To achieve a photo-ready yet comfortable base, I layered one of my favorite drugstore foundations with my favorite affordable concealer in a lighter shade. After applying bronzer to the edges of my face, I used a damp sponge to apply setting powder underneath my cheekbones for a clean, carved out look. Today, I actually wanted my blush to be more bold, so I stippled on one of my favorite affordable blushes in the most beautiful shimmering peach shade. This will complement the green eyeshadow. For a subtle yet stunning highlight, I reached for my new Hourglass palette.
After filling in my brows and brushing them upwards, I reached for one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes. For my transition shade, I blended warm matte browns through my crease, focusing on the inner and outer corners for a halo eye rather than a cat eye. To make the green pop, I lightly applied ‘Candied Peach,’ a warm coral, in my crease. Using a damp brush, I patted ‘Bless Her Heart,’ a shimmery olive green, on the very center of my eyelid, softly blending out the edges. It is 2020 after all, so I skipped the liner and falsies and opted for my a tried-and-true drugstore mascara.
To tie in the warm, peach tones of my cheeks, I layered three of my favorite lip products, which created a glossy, full, and multidimensional look.
Let me know if you enjoy this pop of color or if you recreate this look yourself, and please stay safe this holiday season!
