Metallic Holiday Party Eyeshadow Tutorial

I've been working on a look that was bold and works well for a holiday party. This Metallic Holiday Party Eyeshadow Tutorial is pretty but messy and uses the Saucebox Creme de la Creme palette.

Start out by priming your eyes. I use the NARS Pro Prime.

The base shadow I am using is Saucebox Snow Flake (matte, off-white) on a Sigma Large Fluff E50.

Apply Saucebox Cream Dream  (matte, light neutral brown) under the lash line and along the crease, blending upwards and to a point at the brow tail. I used a  Sigma Small Tapered blending E45 to apply and a Hakuhodo J5522 to blend.

Here is where it gets fun! Apply Saucebox Secrecy (metlalic, pewter) to the inner corner brow bone and mobile lid applying it half way across the lid. I used a Mac 242 for this step.

Using Secrecy again, apply it under the lash line half way and along the outer corner of the eye. I used a Mac 242 for this step.

Blend! I used a Sigma E25 to blend.

Apply Saucebox Inception to the center of the lid and upward. I used a Mac 242 for this step.

I wanted this part to be a bit more intense, so I used NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray to wet my brush and go over the shadow. Then packed more shadow over the damp shadow. I used a Mac 242 for this step.

Apply a bit of Inception to the lower lash line on the inner half. I used a Sigma E30 Pencil Brush for this step.

Apply Saucebox Rain (shimmer, light pearl) to the inner corner and generously to the brow bone. I used a Mac 239 for this step.

Apply Saucebox Future (metallic, cool grey silver) to the inner brow bone. I used a Sigma Small Tapered blending E45 to apply.

To deepen the outer corner a touch I added a bit of Saucebox Black Widow (matte, black) to the outer edge of the top lid. A Sigma Small Tapered blending E45 was used to apply.

Add some mascara and a thin bit of liner.

Finish the look off with some falsies. I am using House of Lashes Siren lashes.

I hope you liked this look and if you try it out make sure to hashtag #rebeccashoresmua so I can see it!
