Get Buzzed

Amp up your style with high-voltage eyes.
Get Buzzed Amp up your style with high-voltage eyes.

Shy violets need not apply: this season's haute holiday look involves high-impact, electric (but not neon) makeup—and a healthy dose of it, too. Bright, bold, attention-getting eyes are sure to get you a date beyond that one steamy night under the mistletoe.

To start, a neutral cream eyeliner like M.A.C. Cosmetics Paint Pot in Indianwood (P1100) helps set the dark eyeshadow in solid shades of blue, pink or purple like those in the Magic, Mirth and Mischief Mystic Cool Eyeshadow Palette (P2800). Paired with their famous <Eye Kohl in Smolder (P900) and coat upon coat of mascara, it provides just the right contrast to a kissably nude lip, or say, even a rogue snowflake delicately falling on your lashes (if only!). Finishing things up are impeccably groomed brows, set to perfection with a tinted brow gel like Brow Set in Beguile (P870).

To cop the look, we enlisted our friends at M.A.C. Cosmetics to show us how to ace the glamorously amped-up look for a super smokin' holiday.
