The holiday season is finally here and you know what that means - good food, family laughs, and the season's most exciting events!

I have been in love with the idea of creating dramatic looks for the holidays because why not?! Something about the holidays screams sparkle and glam so attending holiday festivities with a sultry dramatic makeup look only seems right.

This look was created using my Clarins Essential Eye Makeup Palette which is quickly becoming one of my favorite Holiday palettes! The perfect mix of shimmer and satin shades just screams holiday magic.

The shadows in the palette are highly pigmented and creamy in texture. They applied to my primed effortlessly and rendered a beautiful color payoff in this look! The shadows are a combination of matte, satin and shimmer shades that allow you to create a variety of looks. There is also an amazing diamond shade that I am OBSESSED with! I placed it in the inner color of the eye for this look to add a bit more drama and it did not disappoint!

I'm thinking of gifting my friends with this palette because it's an amazing quality palette that can work on a variety of skin tones for a variety of looks. The palette actually includes a dual-ended brush and guide to help beauty novices create awesome looks as well, which is awesome. I love when brands consider beauty enthusiasts of all experience ranges in their products.

But can we get back into this look?! Blue is an amazing color that plays off of the intensity of deep brown eyes so this is easily one of my favorite looks of the 2017 Winter season!

What do you guys think of this Holiday Blue Smokey Eye? Would you rock it?!

Oh! And a quick fun fact about these shadows: This entire collection is super eco-friendly! All of the materials from the eyeshadow pans, eyeshadow applicator to the palette were selected to soured to meet eco-responsible standards. So you can slay in a sustainable way!
