Christmas eye shadow tutorial

As the holidays approach, so do the fun and festive make up looks! This eyeshadow look will help you spice up your usual makeup routine with Christmas colors and a cute cat eye.


Step 1.

Because we don’t want this eye shadow look to smudge while hugging relatives, prime eyelids with concealer and blend out with a beauty blender.


“I like seeing my family during the holidays,” junior James Gardner said. “Everyone comes from out of town to meet at my house.”


Step 2.

To start off the holiday fun, apply a red matte eye shadow at the crease and blend upwards using a fluffy eye shadow brush.

“I wear make up to enhance my features,” junior Shaylen Rankin said. “I can’t control myself around highlighter.”


Step 3. Add more red as needed to deepen the color and continue to blend using a tiny circular motion. Next, apply a green matte eye shadow to the opposite eye at the crease and blend upward.

“I am going to the North Pole for Christmas to visit Santa,” junior Cade Tipton said.


Step 4. Continue to blend out these Christmas colors using a fluffy eyeshadow brush and add green as needed.

“I am excited for New Years because I am going to the Austin area to watch the ball drop,” junior Madeline Fain said. “I am also going to Rockwall to visit my dad.”


Step 5. Using your finger, take a glittery green and apply it to the eyelid with blended green eye shadow.

“I don’t mind makeup, but too much of it is a bad thing,” junior Kyle Fontenot said.


Step 6. Now take a red glittery color and apply it to the lid with red blended eye shadow using your finger.

“I like Christmas because we get two weeks off of school,” junior Grant Gore said.


Step 7. To make the under eyes pop, take your previously used matte green eye shadow and use a skinny, dense brush to apply green eye shadow on the lower lash line of the eye with red shadow.

“My favorite part of Christmas is everyone getting sick around the same time,” Rankin said. “It’s a sense of comradery.”


Step 8. Apply the red shadow on the lower lash line of the eye with green eye shadow.

“My favorite makeup tool is very dark red lipstick,” Tipton said.


Step 9. Use eyeliner to create a cat eye to add the finishing touch to this holiday look.

“If a woman feels like she needs to wear makeup (although she probably doesn’t), mascara is all you need,” Gore said.
