‘Tis the season to shine and we couldn’t think of a better way to inject a little bit of sparkle to your festive season than with shimmer eye makeup. If you’re on the hunt for new Christmas eye makeup looks that are easy to do and as few steps as possible, look no further. 

While Christmas parties may be cancelled, you’ll still want to shine in your virtual celebrations, and this Christmas eye makeup look is just the thing to make you merry and bright. 


Step one: Galactic Lid Gloss in Zodiac Makeup artist, shimmer makeup tutorial

Apply Galactic Lid Gloss liberally to your eyelid, smoothing across the skin for an effortless – and multidimensional – shimmer. Providing high-impact sparkle, this lightweight eyeshadow in a coppery bronze is a fan favourite for good reason.

Step two: Create definition with Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner

The calligraphy-inspired tip of Black Magic Liquid Eyeliner makes it an easy favourite due to its ability to create fine lines or build along the lash line for increased drama. Trace it along the lash line for subtle definition then add a wing of your preference to enhance the eyes.

Step three: Boost your lashes with Lash Alert Mascara 

Infused with caffeine and biotin, our Lash Alert Mascara will promise wide-open lashes to complete this look. The added fibres in this mascara will coat your lashes generously to create a voluminous finish.
