2. Glittery gold eyes
Stunning gold eyeshadow or glitter will make your eyes pop. Apply it across the lids for a radiant, eye-catching effect. Pair with neutral lips to make your eyes the center of attention — like what one X user showed below.

5. Sparkling silver
Opt for a modern mermaid look with sparkling silver eyeshadow. Pair it with a nude lip and a touch of highlighter for an ethereal appearance.
6. Cranberry eyes and bold lips
Experiment with cranberry color eyeshadow to create stunning eye looks for a girls’ night out this holiday season. You can try pairing this eyeshadow with neutral or bold lips and subtly defined cheeks for a harmonious balance.
One YouTuber shared her take on this combo in a tutorial.
7. Glowing glamour
Achieve a radiant glow by focusing on luminous skin. Use highlighter on the high points of your face, opt for glossy lips, and keep the eye makeup soft yet defined for an effortlessly glamorous finish.
