Sparkling Cranberry Eyes with Orange and Purple

Sparkling cranberry is a perfect color for this holiday season. Here, I used it with a touch of orange and purple to add some pizazz and tons of fun to it. The sparkle was achieved using MAC's Very Pink Reflects Glitter, wet, which makes for a gorgeous metallic sheen. Any pink glitter would work though, or it could be skipped altogether.
