There’s only a few weeks left until the Holidays, the best excuse to try some sparkly make up, shimmer and make your skin glow.

Glam to the bone

We are obsessed with the glitter finish on this metallic eye, spotted on the Jason Wu runway. Lancome makeup artist Diane Kendal created this look with the Lancome Color Design Eye Brightening All in One 5 Pan Shadow and Liner Palette, $49, in Bronze Amour. Sweep the medium brown shadow over your lid, then apply the dark brown matte shade to your crease. Blend with a clean brush, then apply a golden glitter shadow (likeMAC Glitter, $25, in Gold) to the center of your eyelid. Clean up any extra glitter with a piece of clear tape. A sheer pink or coral gloss is an understated way to go glam, but Stapleton also assures up that you can pair a colorful lip with a metallic eye to bring the drama.

High-shine, low-maintenance

If you love sparkle and shine (guilty), then don’t be afraid to recreate this look from the Chanel runway at home. When going for a super-glam look, DIY style, Stapleton recommends sticking with a neutral palate like this one (think silver, bronze or gold).

To get it, try a kit made specifically for high impact metallic sheen like Stila’s Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow, $32, in Comex Platinum. Mix the primer and the shadow together, and then use a firm brush to apply the silver shadow over your eyelid, on your lower lash line and in the inner corner of your eye. If you are feeling extra bold, extend the shadow up to your eyebrows and balance it by taking it along the entire length of your brows. Smudge a creamy black liner along your lash line and finish with lots of mascara. Keep the rest of your look toned down with glowing skin and a natural lip.
