10 Ways To Wear Glitter Eye Makeup for the Holidays

Friday December 7, 2012 by Alexandra C.

The holidays are a time for three things: eggnog, shopping and glitter. Coincidentally, those three things are also my favourites things of all time. 

When it comes to glitter and the holidays, I think all rules go out the window. Want to do something dramatic and over the top? Girl, I support you. My go to holiday look this year will be a glitterfied cat eye. But a full lid of sparkle or even some inner corner glitter can also look amazing for a festive event! 

Here are 10 glitter eye makeup ideas to inspire you:

I'm also loving this tutorial on an icy blue glitter look. While I'm not sure if I could pull it off, I think this look is gorgeous!

I love the gold and black smokey one... I feel like that could be used for any special occasion and not just the holidays

The one with the purple/gold is stunning! Not sure if I could pull this off, but might have to try and see. A girl can hope right!

Also, is that girl looking down in the middle of the banner Megan Fox? If so, she looks like she has had a lot of plastic surgery done recently D:

The less bold ones are my fave (so pretty) but I have no idea where I could wear them.

A little bold for everyday.....

I think a lot of these are way over the top, but I like the one where it is blue-ish glitter underneath the eye, and I also like the one with burgundy and gold. I guess this means I need to start wearing my favorite gold eyeshadow again to get into the holiday spirit.
