These statement eye looks will make you look as festive as you feel this party season.
Metallic shine on the eyes
When it comes to party glam, there is no such thing as too much shimmer and shine. These megawatt metallics are just the key if you're wanting to add some sparkling drama to your evening attire. Layering silver glitter over a smoky eye gives it a more elegant feel while a graphic shape in gold will instantly give your eye shadow a glamorous and modern update.

Glitter make-up
Glitter is striking on the eye and is all you need to elevate your LBD. Use three glitter liners in different colours and sweep them over the eyelid and into an exaggerated wing. To finish off the eye area, make sure to add loads of mascara to both the top and bottom lashes, and keep the rest of your face clean and dewy. On the lips, a clear glitter gloss will complement the overall look.

A charcoal-grey smoky eye
For those of us who shy away from colour and shimmer, the smoky eye is always a winner. A charcoal version is a little more festive than the usual black look. Apply a creamy shadow all over the lid, starting at the lash line where it should be darkest, and buffing it out towards the brow bone. Then apply the gel liner along the top and bottom lash line, smudging it with a small eye brush. Sultry and sexy, it’s a look that really pops when worn with a fresh face and nude lip.

A wash of green and purple on the lids
We love a surprising look that just works, especially when it involves colour. Using green or purple across the whole lid oozes glamour. It’s important to prep the lids with a primer to ensure your make-up stays put. Press the most concentrated colour onto your lid before sweeping the shade up to your brow bone and underneath your lash line. Add a feline flick to dial up the drama, and mascara and a glossy nude lip to finish it off.

Avant-garde cat eye
For something a little different this season, try the deconstructed cat eye. This look is a real head-turner; the neon orange and black combo makes double sure of that. We advise keeping the rest of your look neutral; a dewy, bare face and a clear, glossy lip is all that’s needed.

Glossy eyelids
Giving your eyelids a wet look is huge right now – and perfect for the festive season parties you’re bound to attend. It’s super easy to do too, as the gloss can go over any eye make-up look you’ve decided to create. Go for a dark and dramatic halo eye and swipe some gloss over the eyes and lips.

Red lips and eyes
This is a bold look that will make you stand out from the crowd. Mix shades of red to create depth – think orange-red in the middle of the lid and the bottom lash line, shifting to pink-red at the outer brow bone. Add a rose gold shimmer to the inner corner, which acts as a highlighter and opens up the eye area. As for the pout, a diffused red lip is both merry and romantic.
