Whether you plan to deck yourself out in candy cane liner or prefer a more subtle metallic finish, choosing the right holiday makeup look is half the struggle. For those makeup maximalists who would dig the former, we’ve created the ultimate holiday cat eye tutorial. Ahead, get the look in nine steps — with crystals, red eyeshadow and all.
STEP 1: Start by defining your brows withL’Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Gel and an angled brush.
STEP 2: Next, place two pieces of tape along your eye: one that follows the natural line of your outer corner and one that wings out across your brow to create a triangle.
STEP 3: Using Lancôme Le Monochromatique in Haute Couture, swipe the shadow along the triangle with a flat shader brush, and blend it onto your lid, stopping about a little more than halfway through.
STEP 4: Remove the tape, and apply the same Monochromatique shadow onto your lower lash line, winging it out.
STEP 5: To further define your eyes, line your waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Perversion.
STEP 6: Add a cat eye flick with IT Cosmetics Superhero Liner to finish off the liner.
STEP 7: Coat your lashes with L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara.
STEP 8: Using a few drops of eyelash glue, apply crystals to complete the look.
STEP 9: Set your makeup with Urban Decay Cherry Makeup Setting Spray.
