5 Celebrity Eyeshadow Looks To Flaunt At Your Thanksgiving Dinner

In just one day, you may find yourself surrounded by a circle of folks who will engage you in those ‘so-what’s-new’ conversations over a glass of cabernet and a plate of roasted turkey. An American holiday devoted to feeling ever so grateful, Thanksgiving provides the annual opportunity to enjoy a delicious feast while mingling with family, friends and sometimes unfamiliar faces. Notice the last part of that sentence. Your Thanksgiving dinner could be the place to meet your future soulmate—maybe your mom invited her friend with the really handsome son who’s also a successful lawyer—or the chance to flaunt your recent glow up that no one from home knows about. That said, make an impression by arriving to dinner with one of these five celebrity eyeshadow looks—each being glamorous, sexy and a potential distraction should you experience a mishap of gravy sliding down your lips.

The smoky ’60s liner made a huge comeback this year, as everyone from Ariana Grande to Kim Kardashian has been spotted with the retro look. However, Karolina Kurkova’s black sultry liner with hints of gold shimmery eyeshadow will certainly steal the show at any classy Thanksgiving dinner—no wonder the supermodel rocked this look for the annual Vizcaya Ball in Miami. Bold yet elegant, this makeup was meant to be paired with a black sexy dress.

Beauty, the musician gave us ethereal vibes with her look featuring frosted lavender hues and delicate pinks. This makeup works great whether you’re looking to dress up or go casual.

Everyone can appreciate a faint touch of glam, especially if you’re not a fan of extravagant makeup looks. Keep it simple by mimicking Kim Kardashian’s matte eyeshadow featuring taupe and chestnut hues. Take the charm up a notch by donning false fluffy lashes like Kardashian, or simply coat your natural lashes with a few sweeps of brown mascara.
