Festive Makeup: 6 Christmas-inspired Eye Makeup Looks that will get you in the spirit

by Paige Exell -

The holiday season is the perfect time to experiment with glittery eye shadows (and lips), dark shades of lipstick, and metallic looks that you wouldn't normally wear on a day to day basis. After giving you gorgeous (and totally wearable) holiday makeup, hair and outfit inspiration for your upcoming Christmas parties and events, we're offering you inspirational looks that may seem a little too over the top (or difficult to achieve, for that matter) for your office party, but will be sure to get you in the holiday spirit!

From twinkly-scenery-painted lids to candy cane eyeliner flicks, check out the holiday-inspired eye makeup looks that will make you re-think every festive beauty look you've ever worn – as well as your ability to use an eye shadow palette! (Try them at your own risk!)

HOLIDAY MAKEUP INSPIRATION: FESTIVE EYE SHADOW LOOKS

SANTA'S ELF HANGING ON A WINGED LINER

While most of us have yet to perfect the perfect cat-eye, this makeup guru has gone above and beyond. She accented the flick of her cat eye with a gorgeous ombre shadow, green glitter detail, and a little elf hanging on an ornament. To achieve an easier version of this look, simply apply green shadow (from light to dark moving up towards your brow), then play around with glitter in your crease. Don't forget the cat eye!

NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS LINER

This Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired eye makeup look is both mesmerizing and a little eerie – but totally festive. The makeup artist covered her eye with a yellow and white shadow to create the sky, then drew a silhouette of Jack Skellington over it.

CHRISTMAS TREE SHADOW

If feeling extra creative, get inspired by this Christmas scene shadow. The makeup artist use a slew of liquid liners to create the scene, which included a trimmed tree, reindeer, snow and stars, on a smoky eye.

CANDY CANE EYELINER

This candy cane liner may seem complicated, but compared to the rest, is actually the easiest to achieve! Simply draw a line along your upper lashes with a white liner pencil (as you would for your everyday liner look), then use a red pencil liner to draw smaller stripes within it.

If you're not trying to get too painterly, fasten on some gold, tinsel-inspired false lashes for an instantly gilded look, instead. And we thought glitter lashes were daring!

HOLIDAY LIGHTS-INSPIRED LINER

Don't just stop at a candy cane striped cat eye! Amp up the look even further by drawing on Christmas light decorations on the hollow of your eye!
