Glittery Plum Christmas/New Year party eye makeup : Step by step tutorial

 

Hey everyone!

Today I’m doing a Glittery party eye tutorial for the upcoming Christmas/New Year party season. You can use any glittery dark shade of plum/blue/green or brown for this look to the same effect. This is one time of the year when one can get away with oodles of glitter and drama in one’s makeup!

Since the Glittery eye makeup is the star of the show, keep the rest of the makeup understated. A soft pink blush with natural pink gloss would look great with this look!
