Kylie Jenner Makes a Case for Unexpected Holiday Makeup
Kylie Jenner has become quite the beauty maven—from expertly applying her own glam (a feat in Hollywood) to selling out the new products in her cosmetics line in mere seconds. So, yes, we'll admit it: We look to her for inspiration when it comes to our beauty looks.
As such, when Kylie Instagrammed a new look perfect for the holidays, we couldn't help but re-create it. It's a bit unexpected—red-lined eyes and rosebud shadow. Previously, we associated red eyes with exhaustion or problems with our contacts (the struggle is real). But now, it's the holiday makeup look we never knew we needed.
To re-create her look, you only need a few products. And if you have blue eyes, this shade is even more flattering, as Lijha Stewart, the Director of Artistry and Education for Make Up for Ever, explains, "If you're after that crystal-clear blue, the red undertone in burgundy shades makes eyes appear even brighter." Keep reading for a step-by-step guide to master this holiday look.
1. Prime your lids with a neutral-coloured shadow like one from Urban Decay's Naked2 Basics Eye Shadow Palette ($47).
2. Fill in your entire lid with a rosebud eyeshadow, then apply below your lower lashes. We love the lighter shades of MAC's Eyes Times Nine Palette in Burgundy ($67).
3. Use a slightly darker burgundy shadow along your crease, exaggerating the shape for a wide-eyed look. For this, use the darker shades included in the MAC palette above.
4. Apply mascara to your top lashes only (this makes the eyes look even bigger), using brown rather than black for a softer finish.
