These colors are great for the festive season. Let’s get started!

  • Makeup brushes
  • Eyeshadow
  • Eyeliner
  • Glitter gel
  • Glitter
  • Mascara
  • False lashes
  • Makeup remover
  • Brow powder
  • Brow gel
  • Foundation
  • Contour
  • Blush
Applying foundation to eyelids

1. Apply foundation to eyelids

Neutralize your eyelids with foundation to get rid of any pinky tones.

Applying eyeshadow base

2. Apply eyeshadow base

Go in with a milky vanilla eyeshadow and dust it over your eyelids.

Then, take a cinnamon shade and work it straight into the socket.

These colors will work as our transition for when we put the berry shade over the top.

Applying darker eyeshadow

3. Apply darker eyeshadow

Take a burnt terracotta eyeshadow and work that directly over the cinnamon shade.

It's important to layer different colors because, a lot of the time, the color of the eyeshadow in the pan doesn't always translate as the same color once it's applied to the skin.

A lot of berry shades tend to have purple undertones, and that color is going to be great for the mobile lid, but we want it to transition into something quite warm. 

Applying purple eyeshadow

4. Apply purple eyeshadow

Take a fuchsia shade, and using the same brush, work this color into the socket of the eye as well.

Work your brush backward and forwards with a light hand, blending the raspberry shade into the cinnamon shade.

Apply darker berry tones

5. Apply darker berry tones

We’re going to start going into darker berry tones on the actual lid itself.

Take some eyeshadow in a grape shade, and this color is going to transition down from the socket onto the eyelid. Blend the socket to make sure everything is nice and seamless.

Now, take a burgundy shade with a sheen finish, pat it onto the eyelid, and feather it up towards the socket line.

Then go in with a small brush and, with light strokes, blend those two shades together in the socket to create a nice gradient.

Applying sparkly purple eyeshadow

6. Apply sparkly purple eyeshadow

Take a sparkly purple eyeshadow and use one of your fingers to tap it onto your eyelid directly over the burgundy shade.

This eyeshadow has a violet-colored sparkle all the way through it, so it's going to help to make our berry shade look sparkly.

Go back in with a small brush and make sure that the edges are seamless.

Applying eyeshadow underneath eyes

7. Apply eyeshadow underneath eyes

Go in with a pencil brush and apply the burnt terracotta shade underneath the lower lashes.

Adding eyeliner

8. Eyeliner

Now take some eyeliner to tightline and run it along the waterline. 

Applying sparkly eyeshadow under the eyes

8. Apply sparkly eyeshadow under eyes

Underneath those lower lashes, apply some sparkly purple eyeshadow.

Use a small brush to connect the outer corner with the top lid and smoke it out slightly. 

Adding glitter gel

9. Paint on glitter gel

Paint on a thin line of glitter gel across your top lash line. Then pick up some glitter on your brush and press that onto the glitter gel. 

Lining the top lash line

10. Line the top lash line

Line really close to the top lash line. Go all the way from the inner corner to the outer edge but don’t wing it out.

Applying mascara

11. Apply mascara

Go in with some mascara. Apply one coat to your top lashes and two coats to your bottom lashes. Then apply a pair of false lashes.

Creating a wing

12. Create a wing and apply eyeshadow

Clean up under the eyes using makeup remover to create a sharp wing on the outer edge.

Take a nude sparkly eyeshadow and apply that to the inner corners of the eyes.

Filling in brows

13. Fill in brows

Apply a light brow powder to the front half of your eyebrow and a darker shade on the outer half of your eyebrow to create an ombre brow.

Set your brows in place using a brow gel.

Applying foundation

14. Apply foundation

Use a foundation with good coverage.

Then, use a contour and work it into the hollows of the cheeks using a buffer brush. Use a beauty blender to press it into the skin.

Go in with powder contour around the hairline and set the hollows of the cheeks.

Applying blush

15. Apply blush

Take a brick shade blush and dust it onto the back half of the cheeks.

Then, use a lighter shade on the top of the cheekbones and a little bit above the eyebrow bone.

Applying lipstick

16. Apply lipstick

Apply a muted purple berry lipstick.
