Hey everyone! In this tutorial, I thought I would do a classic holiday eyeshadow tutorial with gold eyeshadow and red lips! I used a beautiful golden eyeshadow on my eye lid and then added a thick winged line to give a pin-up feel. In order to make the look more winter appropriate, I smoked out my lower lash line with a sultry brown cream eyeshadow. I really enjoyed this look, I hope you do to! Keep reading for directions and the listed products.
- Urban Decay's Primer Potion
- Stia's "Lame" Eyeshadow
- Urban Decay's Baked Eyeshadow

- Prime your eyes! Make sure to do your lower lash line as well! This well help your eyeshadows appear more concentrated and have a longer longevity.
- Apply a golden champagne base. I used MAC's "Bare Study" because the formula is amazing and works really well as a base.
- Use a yellow toned eyeshadow all over your eyelid. I used my Stila eyeshadow because it is almost a true yellow. This will boost your gold eyeshadow and bring out the highlights within it!
- Now pack your golden eyeshadow onto your eyelid. I used a flat shader brush to really bring out the pigmentation within!
- Take a carbon black eyeliner and make a dramatic thick line that progressively thickens as it goes to your outer corner. Then proceed to create a wing to give a classic pin-up and youthful look.
- In order to smoke out the look, apply a brown eyeliner pencil to your lower lash line. As it is extended, thicken it towards the outer corner and connect it to your black wing! I wanted to add some shine so I took the darkest brown eye color from my Revlon Cream Eyeshadow palette and added it on top of the eyeliner with an ELF concealer brush.
- Apply mascara to your bottom and upper lashes.
- I didn't use any products on my face except concealer! You can put a baby pink blush to soften your face if you wish.
- Apply a plum or cherry lipstick. I used my new Chanel one named "Unique"! It's the perfect mix of shine and sheerness that is age appropriate and lovely for the holidays.
