Christmas Eyeshadow Looks That *Sleigh*

When your social calendar is stacked, and your wardrobe is more sequins and velvet than jeans and tees, it can only mean one thing: it’s the season of glam, aka December. To complete your festive vibe, we’ve got four of the coolest Christmas eyeshadow looks out there, from insane golden glitter to party-perfect pink pigments. Which Christmas eyeshadow look will you wear first?

1. Candy Cane Pink Eyeshadow

All we want for Christmas is candy pink eyeshadow. If you love rose gold eye makeup, you’ll be obsessed with this icy-cool look, featuring Magnif’Eyes Eye Contouring Palette in Blush Edition.

Sleigh the Look:

1. Start with the second lightest shade in the palette, sweeping it over the entire lid from lash line to crease.

2. Next, blend the sixth-from-left mauve shade from the outer corner of the eye to the centre of the lid, creating a dark-to-light gradient.

3. Use a soft, fluffy brush to smudge the fourth-from-right deep taupe shade right through the crease, starting at the outer edge of the eye and diffusing inwards.

4. Finish by pressing the lightest shade on the inner corner of the eye to highlight.

2. Smokey Kohl Eyeshadow

Forget finding coal in your stocking – if you’re on the nice list, it’s all about kohl this season. Create smokey eyes with a sweep and a smudge of pencil eyeliner, and you’ve got the easiest Christmas eyeshadow look ever.

Sleigh the Look:

1. Reach for your new BFF, Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in Black. It’s an eyeliner pencil with a built-in smudger on one end, so you can blend smokey eyes to perfection.

2. Start by defining the waterline. Trace the pencil along the top and bottom waterline so eyes are rimmed with kohl, making sure you etch pencil in the corners also.

3. Next, line the upper and lower lash line. Don’t worry about being too neat here, as you’re going to be smudging in no time.

4. Flip the pencil and use the smudger to blend out your kohl for a sooty, sultry look. Go gentle on the lower lash line but take it as bold as you like on top.

3. Stardust Gold Eyeshadow

Let it glow, let it glow, let it glow with a gold eyeshadow look that suits everyone. It’s easy, it’s dreamy and it’s speedy, making it perfect for quick desk-to-dancefloor transformations or last-minute parties.

Sleigh the Look:

1. You only need two products for this look. The first? Wonder’Swipe 2-in-1 Liner to Shadow in Instafamous, which is a pure gold liquid pigment. Glide it over the inner corner of the eye.

2. Use your ring finger to blend the gold pigment out from the inner corner to the centre of the lid. Tap the edge to diffuse the colour.

3. Repeat step two for a bold finish – because who wouldn’t want to be dripping in gold?

4. Complete the look with jet black lashes to stand out against all that gold. We love Wonder’Luxe Volume Mascara for serious plumping power in a single sweep.

4. Tinsel Bronze Eyeshadow

Twinkle like tinsel in a bronze eye look. Magnif’Eyes Eye Contouring Palette in Nude Edition will make you the jingle belle of the ball in a couple of strokes.

Sleigh the Look:

1. Grab a tapered eyeshadow brush, dip it into the fifth-from-right shade in the palette, and trace a sideways ‘V’ shape that angles from the centre of lids to the outer corner of the eye, then up to the crease. Gently blend.

2. Add a little extra shadow to the outer edge of the crease for definition, sweeping through the socket for soft, smokey definition.

3. Using a clean, flat eyeshadow brush, press the second-from-left light bronze shade onto lids, starting at the inner corner of eyes and into the centre of lids so it meets the deeper shade.

4. Blend light and dark together before finishing the look with mascara and a deep burgundy red lipstick. Go bold or go home is the look here, so choose an ultra-dark shade.
