Silver And Gold Holiday Eyes

Nothing says the holidays like the traditional colors of red and green.  But I like shaking things up, so for my "holiday party eyes," SILVER and GOLD is where it's at for that festive sparkle!!




{My hair looked really bad this day, so that's why you're not seeing my full head. Honestly.}




I've got plenty of parties and get-togethers to attend this December, and I think this is going to be a go-to look for them.  Here is an easy breezy way apply these beautiful metallic colors for that perfect party face.  


1.  The hub for this look is the EYES.  I used MAC's "woodwinked" shadow ($15) as the gold on my upper lid and inner tear duct area.  I then added "quicksilver" liquid liner by mark cosmetics underneath the lower lashes, along with my Kat Von D shadow in "holy bible" (how appropriate for the Christmas season, huh??) from the Love and Fury palette ($34) over the top of the liner to make it pop more.



{For added drama (maybe going from day to night), add a waterproof black eye liner on the inner bottom waterline. Waterproof bc that area tears up so bad, it needs extra staying power.}

2.  For my CHEEKS and LIPS I kept them fairly simple, but with the Midas touch included.  I applied a gold and pink toned highlighting product to my cheeks instead of blush, Too Faced Pink Leopard bronzer ($29).  And for the lips, a simple golden gloss like Too Faced Sun Bunny lip gloss ($17) or Benefit's 24k Sexy Gold lip gloss ($15).


{My golden glow!!}

And as a side beauty note, since I laid it out up top that my hair didn't look camera worthy, I did want to show you a hair product that IS camera worthy! I've been wearing the heck out of these simple animal print clips from Forever21 ($1.50 for 2- aw yeah!) to keep the stray hair and sometimes bangs out of my eyes.  I couldn't find a link to these on their website, but I JUST got them in the store less than a month ago. They go with everything!!  

Speaking of animal print, I just ordered this animal print piece for my daughter for Christmas on Cyber Monday- I think she will feel sassy sittin' around in it!





What shades of makeup will you be wearing to all of your holiday parties next month?? Here's to hoping maybe you get some REAL gold or silver under the tree too;-)

I normally hate gold and silver tones together, but you make it look really cute!

Hey Girlie. Oh my goodness, loving this take on Holiday eye shadow. I totally agree with you, reds and greens are way over done. Silver and gold is a perfect alternative. I'm particularly loving the gold. Super chic and of course, you look gorgeous as always. Amazing post, love. xo
