Cool Toned Holiday Makeup Look | Life Of Dahlia

For my second holiday makeup look, I wanted to do something more cool toned so I went for an overall green eye look. For this look I used the Kat Von D Serpentina palette but you can find similar foiled shimmery eyeshadows from brands like Chi Chi Cosmetics.

I also used one of NYX Cosmetics prismatic single eyeshadow in Mermaid which you can find anywhere that sells NYX products (Priceline, Target, etc.)

If you’re looking to create some Glam holiday looks but want a more affordable option check out palettes from brands like Chi Chi Cosmetics and BYS Cosmetics, the both have affordable palettes with some great shimmer and matte eyeshadow.

I hope you all found this look inspiring, sorry I haven’t gone as in depth with this one, hopefully sometime in the future I can start posting videos. I know these can be more helpful but I’m just not there yet, I’ve got to organise some sort of set up before I can venture into the realm of Youtube.

Happy Holidays,
