Christmas Eyeshadow Palette Essentials

Christmas Makeup Palettes Colors

When we think about Christmas, there are a few classic colors that we should never forget. 

Of course, you can pick any color, but the Xmas classics are red, gold, green, and white.

For this reason, if you are looking for a Christmas eye shadow palette, ensure they have these colors.

Apart from that, you can also look for Christmas makeup palettes that contain rose gold, copper, and silver, as they are great alternatives to classic colors.

These are excellent options for people (like me) that don’t feel comfortable wearing a nonneutral eye shadow palette.

Green eye shadow palette

Green: symbol of hope, resistance, and resilience that refers to the fact that in the old days, people decorated their houses with pine, holly, and ivy, plants that withstood the winter;

Green is an excellent color for Christmas eye makeup. It not only combines with the occasion, but it’s also a versatile color for every skin tone.

You can try a lighter shade and combine it with golden or silver, which gives a touch of elegance to any look.

The darker tones of shimmering green will go well with those with darker skin.

Red represents the blood of Christ and unconditional love.

I don’t see people wearing red eyeshadow very often, but I find it extremely beautiful.

If you haven’t tried it already, this is the time to have it on your eyelids, as this is an excellent choice for Christmas.  

The result will be a modern, elegant and sexy look altogether.

If you don’t have any red eye shadow palette, you can just apply a little bit of red lipstick, as there is an excellent trend now of wearing lipstick eyeshadow.

Shimmer Shades & Metallic eyeshadow palette

When we talk about gold, copper, silver, and rose gold, we already think about shine, but we can also pick some shimmery green and red shadows.

Shimmer shades are my favorite because they bring much more luminosity to the eyes, making them pop.

Neutral shades go well for Christmas because they resemble the occasion’s shine and luminosity.

Glitter eyeshadow palette

For those who celebrate Christmas at larger parties, such as ballrooms, with large productions, a glitter is also a good option for your makeup. 

Metallic or shimmering lipsticks, glitter eyeshadows, and powerful highlighters come here.

Does It Have To be Shimmery?

I love to add shimmer finishes, but it doesn’t have to be like that all the time.

It will look much more outstanding if you add a little shine; however, if you are going to a family dinner, try to do it sparingly.

You can add more shine if it is a larger, relaxed holiday parties with friends.  

Let’s say this is a Christmas event or a giant party. In this case, you can even use gorgeous glitter.

Golden eyeshadow palette

Gold: represents the presence of the divine, light, and sun. Furthermore, it symbolizes gold, which was given as a gift by one of the Three Wise Men;

Choosing golden, earthy neutral shades, soft pink or even a no-makeup makeup vibe is also an excellent option for holiday season.

The smoky eye is always a good idea too. You can do it with a fluffy blending brush and a gold eye shadow palette.

White eyeshadow palette

White: represents the purity, innocence, and life of Christ to the world.

Talking about white, you add shimmer, by creating a white foundation with matte shade, and apply silver on top, giving an excellent Christmas effect.

Silver and gold are classic and an excellent combination for Xmas. You can start with a golden background all over the eyelid and add nuances of silver on the inner corners.

Red And Gold eyeshadow palette

You can cover the eyelid with red eyeshadow. You can use a fluffy blending brush to apply matte neutrals shades under the shimmery. Then you use silver eyeliner to trace a golden line.

The golden line goes well with any green as well.

Smoky eye

Why not try smokey eyes if you are going to a night event? After all, it is a versatile option for larger parties.

Smokey eyes will give you a touch of sophistication but remember not to exaggerate. Otherwise, you can look tired.

Also, keep in mind what kind of party you will attend. For example, larger parties combine well with darker shades of eyeshadow.

It’s worth betting on the black or burgundy eyeshadow, and feel free to combine them with elegant bronze or golden tones.

The most intimate gatherings, with few family members, require simpler smoked productions. 

In this case, the brown shade will be the most suitable. The touch of shine is due to similar tones, but only in the inner corner of the eyes.

Remember to save a fluffy blending brush to help you with this task.

What Not To Do

Try to avoid colors that are too dark, as they can leave your look heavier and dense. Also, it has little to do with Christmas, a commemorative event.

If you are planning to wear vivid lip colors, the tip is to use softer eyes, but it is still ok to use eyeliner. 

Final Takes
