The holiday season is nearly here and we absolutely cannot keep calm! From buying new outfits to decorating your Christmas tree, we are sure your preps are on in full swing! Even though the celebrations are going to be a lot more subdued this year, with the compulsion of wearing a mask every time you’re out, don’t let this dampen your spirits, girl!
Yes, you may have to give those moody wine and berry lip colours a break, but here’s the bright side – you can now whip out all the eyeshadow palettes you’ve been hoarding to recreate one of the stunning eye makeup looks you’ve bookmarked on your phone! To help you get started, here are four holiday eye makeup looks that are not only easy to recreate, but look totally stunning even when paired with a mask…

We understand if you think wearing a traditional black smokey eye seems a bit OTT for an intimate gathering. Instead of opting for darker tones, you can always go for a softer, brown smokey eye look. This eye makeup not only looks a lot softer and natural, but is totally perfect for an intimate Christmas party. Remember to finish this makeup look by curling your lashes and applying lots of mascara for an overall glam appearance.

Even though an eyeliner is the most common eye makeup look, Hina Khan shows you the perfect way to spice it up. The bold, dramatic cat eyeliner complete with white wings looks extremely stunning, and is perfect to be worn with all your holiday outfits. Simply define your brows and add a little colour to your cheeks to complete this gorgeous eye makeup look.

Metallic eyeshadows in jewel-toned shades are totally apt for the holiday season. The shimmery texture of metallic shadows looks super festive and is enough to amp up just about any outfit instantly. Pair this eye makeup look with a dewy base and a nude lipstick, and you’re ready to slay!

If you are a makeup minimalist embracing the festive spirit, then coloured eyeliner is the way for you to go. This is an easy-peasy way to define your eyes and make them pop even with a mask on. If you are unsure of which coloured eyeliner to pick, then the best thing to do would be to pair it with your outfit for a uniform appearance.
