The perfect eyeshadow for the holidays

White eyeshadow is perfect for the holidays!The holiday season is pretty much defined by that white stuff that falls from the sky and blankets everything in sight, creating a muted, soft landscape with a hint of sparkle. Snow is Mother Nature's ultimate winter accessory, and if you want to steal the look, there's nothing like a frosty white eyeshadow to do it.

Start off with a matte shadow, like GloMinerals – gloEye Shadow in Opal. Swipe it generously all over your lid, going a bit past your creases so the lighter color is still visible when your eyes are closed. Next, apply a shimmery eyeshadow, like Bare Escentuals – Glimmer Eye Shadow in 2000.

Use a white eyeliner pencil with a touch of shimmer to line the inner corners of your eyes. The added highlight will make your eyes look bigger and brighter. You might also want to use it to line underneath your lower lash line, but it depends on how festive you want to be. Top it all off with your favorite mascara, then pair the look with a sparkly ensemble with silver sequins or jewel-toned satin. So chic!
