Bored of a classic red lipstick or glitter when it comes to holiday makeup? You’re not alone, That’s why we’re challenging ourselves to step out of the box this season with a duo-chrome eye makeup look that feels more elevated than kitch. Ahead, makeup artist and influencer Aniyah Smith breaks down how to get the shimmering, sophisticated look in just four easy steps.
  • STEP 1:

    Create Your Base

    Using the Urban Decay NAKED Wild West Palette, Smith created a base all over the lid with the shade Nudie. She recommends using a big fluffy brush to ensure that you’re covering the entire lid area.

  • STEP 2:

    Add Depth

    Next, she used a pointed eyeshadow brush with the shades Ghost Town and Pony Up to add some dimension into the crease. It’s important to drag the brush up in an oval motion (tracing along the crease line) to get a defined finish. Don’t blend out the colors — this will help avoid muddying the look.
