Smokey eyes are popular all year round; however, during the holidays, you should add a touch of shimmer to your eye shadow or go all out glitter if you want.  Use a classic black shadow or any other darker shade.  Browns and bronzes make a beautiful palette.  Deep purple, dark green, and even midnight blue can look great, too.  You can even do a combination of these for a fun, unique look.

Metallics

Holiday decorations are all about sparkles, so let your holiday style reflect that, too.  Shimmery metallics are perfect for this time of year.  You can wear almost any shade you want, especially when using them to contour and accent everyday colors.  A little goes a long way with bright colors, so be careful not to overdo it.
