When it’s time to hit the holiday party, fancy up your eye makeup with these shimmering metallic shades.

Into the Blue

L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Infinite Sky ($8)

If the words blue eye shadow give you bad 1980s flashbacks, allow us to introduce you to today’s version. A cool-toned blue, like L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Infinite Sky ($8), looks modern, not retro, when faded out over lids and paired with a soft-gray shadow along the edges.

Golden Eye

Maybelline New York Master Precise Ink Metallic Liquid Eyeliner in Solar Gold ($9)

To get this 24-karat look, start by covering your lids in a neutral matte eye shadow. Grab a glittery liquid liner, like Maybelline New York Master Precise Ink Metallic Liquid Eyeliner in Solar Gold ($9), and draw a thin, sharp line along the upper lash line, flicking up at the outer corner. To really go for the gold, add a skinny line along the lower lash line, too.

Silver Lining

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Cuff ($20)

Black eyeliner is a no-fail classic. But how about trying something more unexpected for your next holiday bash? A border of silver around the eyes is a little bit rock star and 100 percent flattering. Trace your eyes with a silver pencil, like Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Cuff ($20). Blend slightly to soften the lines.

Pretty Penny

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Shadow Single in Golden Copper ($12)

Everyone’s going-out favorite—the smoky eye—gets a coppery twist. Start with a shadow like Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Shadow Single in Golden Copper ($12). Brush it over your lids up to the crease. Then, with a flat definer brush, use the same shadow as liner along your lower lashes. Blend well to really get that smoky effect, then get ready to sparkle and shine.
