Holiday Party Guide: Holiday Glam Looks!

Today I'm back with the next edition of my Holiday Party Guide and I've partnered with makeup artist Melanie of Mattes & Metallics. Check out her tips below for creating fab looks for your next holiday event!


What would the holidays be without the sparkle?! I usually gravitate towards more metallic textured shadows, but glitter takes this look over the top! This look is relatively simple and will surely be a showstopper at your holiday events! Let's dig in to the details of the look.

If you got your hands on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro Palette by Mario, you know how versatile palette is. I always recommend having a palette like this on hand because it definitely comes in handy when you're pressed for time and typically has all the shades that you need for almost any look. I layered Isabel, Violeta, and NYC throughout the crease and placed Muse on the lid.

This combination gave a nice sultry cranberry smokey effect to the eye. I followed this up with Kat Von D tattoo liquid liner, which I smudged a bit for an extra smokey effect. The main feature of this look is the rose gold glitter! I carefully placed this on the inner half of my lid with my finger. I lined my inner rim with a black pencil liner and used the Violeta to smudge the lower lid.

I kept the skin simple with foundation, concealer, highlight. Lastly, I finished up with a soft pink glossy lip. I used Honeycomb by Bite Beauty and Skinny Dip Lip Topper by Jouer Cosmetics. If you know me I love a strong bold lip, but I find this lip is perfect for this look.

If you want to go full glam you can add a bold lip. This shade is Nori by Bite Beauty.

I super happy to be able to share some makeup inspiration with you all! If you try this look out be sure to tag me @mattesandmetallics on Instagram! I'll see you next week for another holiday inspo look!
