Glitter and Ice: Holiday Makeup Look

Today's post is a holiday makeup look featuring the NYC Individual Eyes Palette in Dark Shadows.

This palette is great for creating holiday looks because it features shimmery silvers and grays.

It features a shimmery white color, a light gray, a dark gray and  a dark shimmery gray, which is almost black.

It also comes with a primer and illuminizer, which I was not found of either.

Here is the look I created using this palette!

I started with the light gray color and did a light wash all over the lid. Then I took the darker gray and put that in the outer corner of the lid. Third, I took the darkest gray and used this as my crease color. I used my Sigma E40 brush to blend all the colors together. I used the white color as my highlight and applied this with my Sigma E60 brush. I also used the darkest color to line my upper lash line. I used my Sigma E65 to apply the shadow for my liner.

I suggest when using this palette to put a piece of tape below the eye and next to the eye because these shadows have a lot of fallout from their dry texture and glitter.

This is a closer view of the eye look.
P.S. Ignore my eyebrows, I messed them up a while ago and need to let them grow back in

I really like how this look turned out and I can see myself wearing this look for New Years Eve.
