Golden Emeralds- A Holiday Look


The Holidays are in full force which means it’s party time! With office holiday parties and parties with friends and/or family now is a great time to add some sparkle to your look.  A holiday look can be no different from your go to, or your usual makeup look. It can be plain and simple or you can go all out if you like. You can never go wrong with a nice smoky eye or a neutral look for a holiday party especially if that’s your style.  But if you’re really into color, glitter, shimmer and all the other great things that make a festive makeup look, by all means work it!

This was a makeup look I did for a holiday party consisting of gold and green. Green and gold are great holiday colors and they look beautiful together on everyone. Gold adds the shimmer and the sparkle while a nice emerald or grassy green adds some depth and festivity  to the look. Gold is probably my favorite eye shadow color  just because you can go as bold or as subtle as you’d like and it’s pretty neutral and will go with just about any other color.
