Three Easy Party Makeup Looks

Be bold this holiday season with these three easy makeup looks. They go way beyond a red lip.

Dramatically Smoky Eye

Rich, velvety purple shadow looks sexy and chic; the shade’s less obvious than I’m-trying-to-be-hot black.

Smoky Eye FYI

Line upper lids in charcoal; layer violet shadow on top, then sweep up so color fades just below your brow bones. Finish with black volumizing mascara.

Or go softer Skip liner, dab on shadow with a finger, smudge.

Copper All Over

Summer doesn’t have the exclusive on glow; metallics give skin party-ready radiance. They’re energizing, too—late nights won’t be written all over your face.

Copper FYI

Start with satin-finish foundation, followed by full-on coppery blush and shadow. Layer black and bronze liner around eyes. Last, peachy gloss.

Or go softer Do just cheeks and lips in copper with neutral shadow on eyes.

Super Graphic Liner

The cat eye, only more meow. Fierce and fab, it exudes confidence—always your best accessory.

Liner FYI

Dip shadow brush into water, then brown shadow, and create a traceable shape. Top with a black liquid-liner pen; close eyes and hit with blow-dryer on cool to set.

Or go softer Make it thinner (think Bic, not Sharpie), extended just past corners.
