Winter is the perfect time to experiment with your beauty routine. So instead of boring ole’ powder shadow, try Stila’s Magnficent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow, $32. This shadow’s one-of-a-kind formula will leave you looking dewy, glowy, and just like a Christmas angel (if angels wore makeup…). All you need is your finger to apply this in five seconds flat. Just take a couple of drops of the specially formulated primer in the lid of the shadow, and swirl it with the product. Tap it gently onto your eyelid, starting in the center, and layer until you’re satisfied (the more layers, the more shiny and foil-y your lids will look).
For a standout look, try Comex Platinum. This silvery shade can work as an allover-lid color, or just as a high-shine highlight for the inner corners of your eye. Metallic Rose Quartz is just the right amount of pop for fairer skintones that need a healthy dose of sheen this season. For deeper skintones, try Metallic Lavender or Metallic Merlot. Both colors will contrast nicely, and make the entire face look fresh and dewy. Keep the attention on your lids with two coats of mascara, and a touch of clear lip gloss (or go old-school with a smudge of Vaseline on your lips—super moisturizing) for a makeup look perfect for the holidays in less than five minutes flat.
