Products Used for Holiday Shimmer Eye Makeup Tutorial
The key to this look is to use a bronze shimmer color. The metallic bronze color catches the light and makes your eyes sparkle. Don’t be afraid to get creative with the colors you have on hand. We actually used a bronzer for our eyeshadow shade!
Shimmer Eye Makeup Tip: Remember to apply in light layers — it’s much easier to get the color you want by layering the shadow rather than applying with a heavy hand. The Oompa Loompa look is not on trend . . . and hopefully never will be.
Add depth and smokiness with a darker shade to the outer corners of the eye. Just a touch does it, the key to this look is to keep it subtle with just a touch of glamour.
Keep the darkest shade for smudging close to the lash line. This little step adds fullness to your eyelash base for that “lashes for days” look. In fact, keep this little tip in handy the next time you’re in a time crunch. It’s an easy, yet often overlooked, way to add a perked up look for your “no-makeup” makeup days.

Want to sparkle from head to toe? Don’t be bashful. Pair a sequined dress with your bronze eyeshadow look. We’ve picked the Sequin Wave Off Shoulder Dress because of its tonal metallic colored finish.
One of the perks to this style of dress is the ability to pair with gold AND silver jewelry. Best of both worlds? We think so.
