Into the Blue

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.
