The Best Party-Ready Eye Makeup
Let’s face it, one of the best parts of the holiday season is going a little overboard with the sparkles, shine, and glitter. (See: 16 Sparkly Accessories We Covet.) That’s why shimmery eye makeup is a pretty much a must, whether you’re hitting up the office holiday party or a glitzy NYE bash. Case in point: actress Olivia Wilde recently told People.com that her go-to party look is a bold, metallic eye.
Ready to make your eyes sparkle? Use these four tips from New York City makeup artist Mari Shten.
1. Opt for neutrals
Shimmer is eye-catching enough on its own, so look for metallic shadow in neutral shades of gold, silver, bronze, or even a rose gold. These tend to look good on most skin tones and will go with whatever party outfit you choose, says Shten. Plus, these hues are definitely in this season (hello, Urban Decay’s brand new Naked 3 palette (, urbandecay.com)
2. Don’t shy away from creams
It’s tempting to stick with loose pigments and eye shadows, but they can get messy (cue glitter ALL over your cheeks). Shten suggests trying cream formulas like Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow (, sephora.com).

3. Keep the glitter where you want it
If you prefer loose powder, Shten suggests doing your eyes before you put on the rest of your makeup. This way, you won’t mind if you need to use a makeup remover wipe to get off the excess glitter. To make sure it stays put, use a base like Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion Tube (, sephora.com), then dust a small amount of powder on the brush, says Shten.

4. Stay inside the lid
When you’re using metallic shades, you don’t need to be too heavy-handed with the application. Start at the inner corner of your eye and blend out towards the middle says Shten. She also warns not to go up to the brow bone when you’re doing a shimmery lid—it’s a little overkill.
