By Camille Santiago Published Dec 06, 2021 9:15 pm

Ah, the holidays. It's the perfect time to bring out all our glitters, metallic liners, and jewel-toned makeup.

No matter how you're spending Christmas and New Year this year (virtually or in-person), don't hold back on the glamour this festive season—that of course, includes your holiday makeup!

Since most of us will be wearing masks, learn a few eye makeup tricks from the experts themselves: celebrities. From classic cat eye to sparkly eyeshadow and face stickers, these are the best eye makeup looks to wear this holiday season.

Below, we rounded up all the makeup ideas we've seen from our favorite stars and have you covered for the rest of the holidays. Have fun!

For some, silver eyeshadow can be intimidating. But, the easiest way to re-create this look is to make the inner corners look as bright and highlighted as possible, while the outer crease is smokier with darker toned eyeshadow just like Kehlani's.

No time to do a full makeup? Wear face stickers a la Lizzo! Wear one or have fun and wear a couple around your eye area.

If you prefer a "less is more" approach to your holiday makeup, check out Jennie's look here. Start with a light base, and add a bit of blush and liquid highlighter to make skin look dewy. Then, apply a thin eyeliner on the lash line. For the lips, use a tinted lip balm. Wear something glittery and festive to balance the whole look.

Red is one of the colors most closely associated with Christmas, so it's just natural to wear the color on your face. For Halsey, she opted a mulberry-toned shadow on her lids, and applied some more under her eye. Don't forget the false eyelashes to make your look more dramatic!

Camila Cabello

Nothing spells 'Winter Wonderland' than iridescent makeup. Camila Cabello looked ethereal in holographic shimmer eyeshadow, which she wore with nude lips and highlighted cheeks.

Brights and neons aren't only for summer! This holiday season, don't be afraid to wear color. Miley Cyrus, for instance, wore a aqua-colored cat eye shadow to (mis) match her red sequined dress. Wear nude lipstick to keep the focus on your eyes.

If your an eyeliner kind of girl, go ahead and put on your classic thick cat eye over your everyday eye makeup. In a hurry? Finish the look like Selena Gomez's perfectly groomed brows and glossed lip!
