Holiday makeup is my absolute favorite! During this party season is it perfectly acceptable and even expected to add a little something extra to your look, and why not?! Life is so much more fun when you embrace glitter! The key to creating holiday looks that help you shine and don't make you look as though you are a Disney on Ice character is balance. 

If you are going for a full on smokey and glitter heavy eye keep the rest of your face fairly neutral with peachy- nude and bronze tones.

If you are all about the statement lip (red, purple or otherwise) you have a little room to play with in how deep you want to go with your eye, but I suggest staying on the lighter side with silver and gold buffed in with brown to contour just a touch at the eye socket and lower lash line.

All of that said, the new rules in makeup are there are no rules! So, if you want to do a smokey eye and a deep lip, go for it. Try a modern take on the smokey eye by using a color quad with a purple or pinkish-red as the base color. This look will be a lot more over the top, so save it for a holiday event that calls for a bit of drama.
