Hey! Gues what?! Only 2 more days for all the deliciousness that is eating stuffed turkey and stuffing, and mashed potatoes, and baked macaroni and cheese! Mmm…. turkey… stuffing! And to eat all of this delicious food, you need to be glammed up, and I am serving a dose for you!

This is the Holiday Glam Look II x Gold Smokey Eyes & Nude Lips

I mentioned that I was going to put some photo guides for your eyes to help you be able to achieve the perfect smokey eye.

If your eyes look like this:
They are called Almond shaped, and you pretty much can do the exact same thing I did with my eyes. Actually, you can do any type of eye look, you lucky gal you! But just in case you weren’t sure where you would need to apply the eye shadow, here’s a breakdown of how to do it.
Apply the beige/off white on the lid (that’s the white portion)
Apply the taupe or a muted brown or soft/light brown on the crease (that’s there the lid ‘folds’)
Apply the darker brown above the crease (above where the lid folds) Make sure that you don’t apply this color all the way up to your brow bone.
Apply gold pigment/glitter onto lid
Line your top and bottom of your eyes

If your eyes look like this
Then you have Shallow Smooth or “Hooded” lids. This means that your crease, the area that ‘folds’ is not visible. This is how you would apply this look
You’re going to follow the same steps as above but make sure that you line your eyes with a liquid or gel liner. You want your eyes to really stand out. You’re going to apply the beige on the lid extending it to the crease, you’re going to apply the taupe or soft brown slightly above it, and then you’re going to apply the darker color above the lighter brown color on the crease. Make sure that you blend the crease color with the darker one. Lastly apply the pigment/glitter right above your liner and slightly just above the 2nd color.

If your eyes look like this
Then you have Prominent lids. Again, follow the steps from above as far as in which order to apply the eye shadows.
With this type of eye you have to definitely line your eyes, top and bottom. Make sure that when you’re applying the beige/off white color on the lid, that it only stays on the lid. When you apply the pigment just make sure that it stays on the lid. You can apply the taupe/soft brown on the crease and the dark brown on the crease and upper crease as well.

If your eyes look like this
You have Deep Set Crease lids. You have big eyes and again, liner is your best friend! You can apply the eye shadows like so
Just with like Prominent eyes, you also have to line your eyes as well and the same steps apply.

If your eyes look like this
You have Descending eyes. This means that a portion of your upper crease covers your lid when your eyes are open. This is how you would do your eyes
With this types of eyes it is important that we give them definition. So, on the lid the beige/off white will go there. Where the crease is, you will actual put the taupe/soft brown color and extend that up a bit onto the upper crease. Then you will apply the darker brown above where your crease that you just created goes. The pigment/glitter will go on your lid and a bit on your crease since it will on its own extend there as well.

And if you have eyes like this
Then you have Deep Set eyes. Your outer corner eye covers part of your lid. This is how you would do your eyes
You want to apply the eye shadows the same ways, the lighter on the lid but you want to extend that a bit upwards to bring light towards the lid portion that is being covered. When applying the darker color to your crease, just remember to apply it above your crease of your inner corner and drag it a bit upwards on your outer lid.
