Holiday Party Look – Dramatic Eyes

I wanted to show you guys the type of look I would wear to a Christmas or New Years party since those days are soon approaching. I decided to build the eye look around Urban Decay’s Maui Wowie, a metallic golden beige with silver glitter. It’s definitely cooler than most gold shades. For the face, I wore my usual foundation, concealer, and bronzer. I used a cool pink blush with a light silver-pink highlight. I didn’t apply any lip color because I wasn’t actually going out but I would definitely use something light and neutral with this look.

I apologize for my hair in my face in the photos!

  • Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strip in Nude – I love PF cheek products so I thought I’d give this a shot but it is definitely a let down. The shades look beautiful in the palette but most of them aren’t even pigmented enough to be worth swatching. I’m going to try using them wet and I’ll let you know if it makes any difference.
  • Rimmel Glam Eyes eyeshadow quad in #028 English Breakfast – Another let down of pretty but not very pigmented shadows. Again, I’m going to try them wet.
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof kohl eyeliner in Taupe
  • Wet ‘n Wild Idol Eyes Creme Shadow Pencil in #E130 Pixie
  • Jordana Fabuliner liquid eyeliner in Black
