While my go-to holiday makeup look is a matte red lip, I love playing up my eyes from time to time. I wanted to create a vivid green eye makeup look, so I turned to the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions eyeshadow palette. It was my first time using the palette, and there are some hits and slight misses, although overall I really like the palette! It has a nice variety of shades of green, and variations from matte to shimmery to glittery. There was a fair amount of fallout with the glittery ones, even with using a damp, flat brush (not unexpected — glittery shades can be trickier), so I waited to do my face makeup until afterward. That way, I could clean up the fallout without messing anything up. Whenever doing a more dramatic eye, I do recommend trying that approach for a cleaner look. I mapped out a step by step tutorial for this look, so check it out below and don’t forget to pin it and share it!



  1. Starting with a primed eye (essential!), sweep #2 from the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions eyeshadow palette from the inner corner to outer crease, going up to the brow bone.
  2. Sweep #6 from about 1/4 of the way in to the outer crease, leaving a bit of #2 visible. Blend.
  3. Using a damp, flat brush, press #5 into the middle lid and #4 in the outer edge. Sorry for combining these — I forgot to photograph them separately!
  4. Using a flat smudge brush, apply #4 to the lower lash line.
  5. Apply #2 to the inner lower lash line and blend with the inner corner.
  6. Apply liner.
  7. Curl lashes and apply mascara and lashes. Done!


Hope you enjoy this holiday look. Let me know if you try it!
