LOTW: Wear Classic Christmas Color in a Classic Glam Way

Deck your face with boughs of holly... OK, not really.

I like to do fun looks for each holiday, but Christmastime is especially exciting for me.

This festive look is perfect for playing around this holiday season. And even if you're not celebrating, you could totally rock this look anyway!

After priming my lids, I used my finger to apply a bright-green cream shadow to my mobile lid up to the crease.

On an angled liner brush, I took that same cream shadow and extended it out for a wide-winged effect.

With a flat concealer brush, I applied a more muted, matte green shade over the areas that I applied the cream shadow to set it and to make it a little less metallic.

Next, I took a fluffy blending brush with a shimmering nude shadow on it and softened up the crease area just a bit.

After that, I used a makeup-remover wipe to clean up any fallout under my eyes and to clean up the edges of the winged shape I created.

With an angled liner brush, I lined my upper lash line with a black gel liner and then set it with a matte black eyeshadow.

After I applied foundation and concealer, I filled in my brows first with pomade and then with pencil and then applied Ardell Accent Lashes to the outer corners of my lashes for a little lift.

To make the eyes pop even more, I also took a small, pointed blending brush and added a bit of shimmer to the inner corners of my eyes.

Next, I used a glittery gold liquid liner to line the underside of my wing for so more glitz.


For the rest of the look, I added a bit of warm nude blush mixed with soft pink blush to the cheeks, highlighted my cheekbones with Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold, and added a deep red lipstick to my lips.

Here are my favorite looks from last week:
