Christmas Cheers Holiday makeup

Here's a little Christmas look I created using eye shadows. This look is relatively quick & easy, the trick is the eye shadow placement. First pat a champagne/gold tone along the brow bone as a highlight color. Next choose a skin tone shade as your transition color, which is base of your eye shadow look, also called a blending color. Take this skin tone color and sweep it all over the eyelid except on the brow bone. Then choose an emerald or forest green tone for your lid color. Make sure to pack this color on and then use your brush or sponge tip applicator to create the wing shape at the outer corner of your eye. I also used the same deep green color to line my under eye line. Go over all of your colors again to make sure they pop. Add tons of mascara and black eyeliner (optional).
