13 Festive Eyeshadows & Liners To Sprinkle Some Holiday Magic Into Your Eyes
Never mind the holidays are comin' – the holidays are officially here! There has never been a better time to revamp your beauty look with festive eyeshadows and eyeliners than right now. You may be in need of a new look for New Year's Eve, a sparkly eyeshadow for Christmas day, or an eye catching eyeliner for your office party. The beauty of makeup is that whatever the occasion, you can change up your look with the flick of a wrist.
I always go a little crazy this time of year for anything that sparkles or glimmers, so of course glittery eyeshadows are on my Christmas list. It seems I'm not the only one who loves a bit of glitz in the festive season; tons of makeup vloggers have created glittery eye looks to celebrate the holidays. If you're a rare gem who isn't really into the whole glittery makeup thing, don't fret because there are also many holiday inspired makeup tutorials out there that don't rely on the sparkly substance. Someone I will definitely be channeling during the holidays is Princess Elsa and her Frozen style and I may even take beauty inspiration from Kylie Jenner's sparkly snow princess look, which she wore for Halloween this year.
So to save you the legwork during this busy period, here is a selection of festive eyeshadows and eyeliners to kick start your holiday beauty look.
