Holiday party season is in full swing, y’all. If you’re not already exhausted from the many Christmahanukwanzikkah fêtes filling up your social calendar, you may just about be getting there. Especially if you’re the type to show up to these parties in a full-on festive lewk. The outfit alone is enough planning, but the makeup? That’s a whole ‘nother story.
But we’re here to make it easier for you. Because we’re nice like that. Oh, and we used one of the holiday season’s hottest makeup palettes to do it. With the help of the M.A.C. Rossy de Palma Veluxe Pearlfusion Eyeshadow Palette and the magic touch of makeup artist Ashley Aloi-Perez, we’ve got a simple tutorial on how to get this colorful look, which kind of reminds us of what a mermaid would wear for the holidays. In the pan, the combination of the palette’s shimmery green, blue, silver, pink, and purple hues are definitely a feast for the eyes, but when you actually put it on? Well, that creates a different type of sorcery — and we’re in love.
The jewel tone of the deep blue shadow is what gives this look its season-appropriate vibe. The shimmery sea green on the lower lashline reminds everyone that you can serve mermaid vibes even if it’s snowing.
Since the eyes are the focus of this colorful look, we’d we’d suggest keeping the rest of the face soft and simple, with a neutral base, flushed cheeks, natural-looking glow, and a glossy nude lip to match. You don’t need much when your peepers are looking this dramatic.
