With face masks mandatory in many global locations, eyes are more than ever the focus of attention when it comes to holiday makeup. So if there was ever a time to go all out, it's now. Forget beauty minimalism -- for one night only, throw caution to the wind with bold, graphic eye makeup looks finished with motifs to stand out and shine this holiday season.
Channeling Christmas spirit
If you're going bold with eyes, you might as well go all out and embrace the most audacious beauty looks this holiday season. The Italian influencer Ilamakeup02 , spotted on Blendbunny , channeled this vibe with a magically enchanting festive look. The eye makeup is graphic in style, finished in icy white, with two thick flicky lines on the upper lid and a snowflake motif with diamanté embellishments. This look is sure to make your eyes stand out, even when you're wearing a face mask.
It can be hard to nail full-on eye makeup without looking ultra kitsch. But the internationally renowned makeup artist Makeupbyalinna manages this to a tee. For the holiday season, the makeup expert picked typical Christmas colors -- green, yellow and red -- applied in vertical stripes to the upper lid. And she didn't stop there, outlining the lid in the same shades but with a glittery texture -- a sure-fire way to sparkle and shine this holiday! For an even more mesmerizing look, add fake lashes and perfectly shaped brows.
What better than glitter and diamanté to make eyes stand out? And it's the best time of the year to use these tricks. Makeup artist Maria Belkovsky makes good use of glitter with a beauty look that's perfect for this holiday. Easy to recreate, the look uses two colors -- midnight blue and black -- blended on the upper and lower lids to widen and enhance eyes. This is topped with bold eyeliner. For the finishing touch, the expert adds fine golden glitter around the eyes for a guaranteed "wow" effect.
