Step 1: You definitely want to have the most flawless complexion on this day, therefore turning to a few precious foundation hacks and creating the ideal base for your entire makeup should be your first step. Apply a makeup base on your freshly washed and cleansed face and then use the most matching foundation shade according to your skin tone. Use a makeup brush when applying the foundation for a perfectly uniform look. Use concealer on the spots you have something to cover and then start sculpting your face with blush. A little bit of bronzer can add warmth to your face.

Step 2: With the help of the best eyebrow kit you’ll get those perfectly arched eyebrows that are full and that give so much expression and character to your face. You can be guided by our eyebrow tutorial if you still don’t know how to fill in eyebrows correctly. For this look we have used Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony + Duo Brow Powder in Ebony.

Step 3: Prime your lids (Too Faced Shadow Insurance) and start applying an orange eyeshadow, which will act as a transition color (Orange Soda from ABH Lavish Palette). Define your crease with a dark brown eyeshadow making sure you blend well (Couture from the same palette).

Step 4: Apply a plum brown shade to the outer V of your upper lid (Beauty Mark from the same palette). Apply a matte black eyeshadow over this, blending it all well (LBD from the same palette).

Step 5: Using either a glitter glue or a wet brush apply a golden pigment to your upper lid passing the center of the lid just a little bit (Makeup Geek Utopia Pigment).

Step 6: Use the same plum brown eyeshadow on your lower lid as well (Beauty Mark).

Step 7: Apply black eyeliner to your upper lid and the waterline (Inglot AMC Gel Eyeliner #77). Highlight the inner corner of your eye and the brow bone for a brighter look.

Step 8: Apply a few coats of black mascara. You’ll want to use false eyelashes too for a more powerful and well-defined smokey eye look (House of Lashes in Pixie Luxe).

Step 9: Having this intense smokey eye makeup you surely need some nude lipstick for a well-balanced final look. Finish off your holiday makeup with a nude liquid lipstick (Rimmel London Apocalips in Nude Eclipse) and you are done!

The last step of our holiday gold glitter makeup tutorial suggests wearing that show-stopping smile and getting in the festive mood to party all night long looking unbelievably fabulous. At the end of the day this is what we want and need to do in the holiday season!
