'Tis the season to sparkle! A little shimmer around your eyes can add instant glamour to your holiday look. For maxium metallic effect check out these application suggestions:

Apply your gold or silver shadow with a wet brush or dust the sparkle over still damp cream shadow or concealer. It'll help the glittery stuff stay put (and keep the flakes off the rest of your face!).

When sweeping the metallic shadow in and above the crease, don't forget about the inner corners of your eyes. It takes this look from something special to absolutely spectacular.

Get more bang for your metallic buck by lining rims in black (it'll pair beautifully with silver shadow) or brown (a perfect compliment for gold and bronze shades). And finish with plenty of mascara!
