Even if the holidays look a little different this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t and shouldn’t dress up. There’s always Zoom, Instagram and TikTok to be on, after all. Feeling uninspired? Go for a red lip and shimmery eye or choose from some of the best metallic eyeshadows and a vampy lip. You really can’t go wrong, especially around the holidays when it’s always a good idea to turn up the shimmer factor.

Metallic eyeshadow can be a little controversial but done the right way, it’s always cool. There are so many options to choose from that you can really customize the look to fit your vibe. Silver and gold feel New Years Eye-ready, while metallic pinks and blues have an ’80s glam that feels fresh again. Brown is more subtle and laid-back, perfect for daytime.

We love metallic eyeshadow so much, we rounded up some of our favorites you can shop now and have by the time the holidays roll around.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
