Four Easy Holiday Inspired Looks

*These pictures are in all different styles because they’re from their various reviews. The Morphe 35V has not been reviewed yet but that review will be coming in January. 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and the busiest. Most of us have at least a few holiday gatherings to go to or just want to look festive for ourselves. I have put together four different Christmas/holiday looks. Two are what I consider more fun and the other two are more “wearable.” They are all fairly simple. The palettes pictured above are the ones I used but of course you don’t need those exact palettes to recreate these looks, just similar shades. I will link to the reviews for each palette except the Morphe 35V because I have not reviewed it yet.

Palettes Used:

Look One

This was the simplest look I did and one of my favorites. I used the Milani Must Have Naturals palette for the light taupe shade in my crease. I used the Nubian 2 palette, Egypt, for the green shade on my lid. I used the Saharan palette, Bororo, for the red shade on my lower lash line. I used the Morphe 35V for the shimmer shade in my inner corner.

  1. I blended the taupe shade into my crease just to help blend out the green. This is very helpful if you want to use a shimmer in the crease because it helps it to look more like a satin and not a full on shimmer.
  2. I used the green shade all over my lid and then blended up into my crease.
  3. I lined my lower lash line with the red shade.
  4. I used the white with silver shimmer shade in my inner corner.

Look Two

I love berry shades in the winter. I only used the Morphe 35V for this look. This one was possibly the most work of all of them just because berry shades can take some effort to blend but I did find the Morphe shadows to be very blendable.

  1. I set my primer with a skin toned shade. When working with deeper tones of shadow it can really make blending much easier if you set your primer, which I generally always do.
  2. I applied a midtone berry shade all in my crease and up toward my brow bone. This is the highest up shadow on my eye.
  3. I applied a deeper tone berry shade right under the mid tone one and just blended those together.
  4. I applied a reddish brown shade in my outer V. This is also lining my lower lash line and slightly smudged out.
  5. I used a berry shimmer shade all on my lid.
  6. I used a champagne shimmer shade in my inner corner.

Look Three

I’m honestly not sure how I feel about this look but it is what it is, lol. It was very simple and I suppose it is quite festive. I used the Magic palette, Kesi, for an almost skin tone shade in my crease. I used the Saharan palette for the gold shade, Wodaabe, and the red shade, Bororo, on my lid. I used the Magic palette for the silver shade, Yemoja, in my inner corner. I used the Nubian 2, Egypt, for the green shade on my lower lash line.

  1. I used a skin tone shade in my crease to help blend the shimmers.
  2. I applied the gold shade over most of my lid and up into my crease.
  3. I applied the red shade over the innermost part of my lid and up into my crease.
  4. I used the silver shade in my inner corner.
  5. I used the green shade to line my lower lash line.

Look Four

This is definitely a look that’s appropriate for anytime but I feel it would be beautiful for a holiday party. You could also swap these shades out and do silver with taupe and black shades. This was very simple and I only used the Morphe 35V.

  1. I set my primer with a skin toned shade.
  2. I used a mid tone orangey brown shade all in my crease.
  3. I used a warm, deeper brown shade in my outer V and on the outer part of my lid. I also lined my lower lash line with this shade and smudged it out. I didn’t apply it to my full lash line but only a little over half. I really like the way this helped frame my eyes.
  4. I used a copper shimmer shade over the rest of my lid and I topped the copper shade with a reddish shimmer shade just to give it more dimension.
  5. I used a champagne shimmer shade in my inner corner.

I hope this helped you if you were struggling to figure out what look you wanted to do for your holiday gathering. More important than the makeup, however, is that I hope no matter what you are all doing that you have a wonderful Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) season. Let me know what you think about the looks I created! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
