What does a 2020 Holiday look like? It might mean zoom parties instead of IRL festive gatherings. But in true 2020 fashion, when life throws us limitations, we find ways to keep things glimmering in new and never imagined ways.
So, whether you want to shower yourself in glitter and gold, or keep it more low key, we have a cosmic, crystal-infused look for you. Cheers to bringing some celestial sparkle to every holiday call you answer.
Create a stardusted illusion eye look with a mix of mattes and sparkle for a seriously #extra exaggerated wing. Kelsey used shades Pixie Rock, Emberglow, Tumbleweed, and Poppy from our Joshua Tree Palette + artfully placed negative space to bring this look to life.
What would holiday be without a glossy deep crimson lip and a moonlit, incandescent highlight? Add in a dose of graphic liner to take it to a whole other level. Sophia used our Supernova Crushed Pure Diamond Highlighter on all the high planes of her face to create that lunar highlight. For the lips, paint on a glossy red pout of your choice, or if you were lucky enough to nab one of our Radiant Ruby Lip Crèmes before they sold out, you can recreate this lip in shades ‘Ruby’ or ‘Power’ (coming back once our facilities reopen, we promise!)
Mix together gilded metallic golds, smoky dramatic greens, and an unexpected graphic liner and you have an almost neutral, yet deliciously distinctive holiday eye look. @kendra.lspringer created this look on @ouikayla with our Topaz Mini Crystal Palette.

If you’re feeling #extra, forego the golden holiday shimmers and opt for an aquamarine inspired Xmas eye! Mari used ‘Agave’ and ‘Joshua Tree’ from our Joshua Tree Palette to create this 'Ariel does Christmas' look.
Go golden all over for a look that feels effortless yet unspeakably stunning. EJ used our Ruby Crystal Charged Cheek Palette & Supernova Crushed Yellow Diamond Highlighter to create those perfectly rosy cheeks and touches of golden light all over her #litfromwithin face.
Who says winged liner is only reserved for the outer lid? Let’s bring it to the inner corner and elongate that eye! Kendra created this look with our Supernova Crushed Pure Diamond Highlighter, ‘Sol’ and ‘Balance’ from our Summer Solstice Palette, and ‘Prickly Pear’ and ‘Wildflower’ from our Joshua Tree Palette.
Paint with every color of the golden rainbow for a glimmering, glistening, gilded in metallic eye look! Diana used our Joshua Tree Palette + Topaz Mini Crystal Palette. to bring this metallized golden ombré look to life. Add on that dark lower lash mascara for extra impact.
Create a lid lifting halo eye look with hues of purple and a magical balance of light and shadows. Xrizztina used our Amethyst Crystal Gemstone Palette and Summer Solstice Palette to create this eye look, plus our Ruby Crystal Charged Cheek Palette on her cheeks. Click here for the full tutorial.
How to make a golden lid just that touch more gleaming and light-reflective? Add a thin layer of gloss all over the lid to amp up the shine. Kendra used our Topaz Mini Crystal Palette plus a clear lip gloss to create this look. You could also recreate this look with golden shades from our Summer Solstice Palette or our Topaz Single Shadow.
