So, the holidays might not be looking super normal this year.
Perhaps you're going to have to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas away from your family, or watching them through the unsatisfying portal of Zoom. Or you're going to have to go through the grief of possibly putting your family's health at risk in order to go home.
That doesn't mean you can't dress up for the occasion, though, even if the occasion is you wandering around your apartment wondering where it all went so wrong or shutting yourself away in your childhood bedroom.
Jewel tones might be the color palate of fall and winter 2020. Warm, luxurious, and cozy, these looks will transport you away from the here-and-now and into a more blissful reality.
Green is a highly underrated eyeshadow color. Be ambitious and try out a sweeping emerald eye for an opulent and grounded vibe. L'Oreal's Golden Emerald is one example; pair it with some false eyelashes and glamorous highlighter to create a truly dramatic look.
A warm, glittery red-orange eyeshadow can illuminate even the darkest of Holy nights. This pick from Pixi, "Liquid Fairy Lights," is infused with rose and chamomile for extra relaxation, and its bronze PassionLight shade will make you glow like a fire in the hearth on a snowy evening.
Nothing says steely drama like a glittery silver eye. It may be too hot because of climate change for a Christmas blizzard, but you can embody the snow yourself with this look. If you have some extra glitter on hand, you might even start experimenting—after all, who's seeing you??
