This holiday season pump up your makeup with a little bling!  Try a jewel tone color to play up your peepers for a for a fun and festive night out.

Here are 3 gem-inspired eye makeup looks:

  1. Sapphire.  A deep blue pigment will add contrast to brown eyes causing them to “pop” or pump up your blue/green/grey eyes by complementing them.  Smudge sapphire eye shadow along your upper and lower lash line with your accent brush for a subtle look, or go bold and sweep shadow all over lid your shading brush and blend edges into your crease with your deluxe crease brush .
  2. Amethyst.  If you love to wear a smokey eye, swap out your black or brown shadows for purple shades.  This rich color looks great on any eye color and works for light to dark skin tones.
  3. Ruby.  Red eye shadow isn’t for everyone, but medium to dark skin tones can look radiant with a pop of ruby on the eyes.  Tip:  draw a tight black line along your upper and lower lash line with gel liner and your fine liner brush to define the eye without accentuating any pink in or around your eye area.
