Perfect Holiday Eye Makeup

We wrote about Violent Lips, temporary lip tattoos, last year, and now they're in the pretty peepers business with Violent Eyes ($8 for a set of 8 appliques). As an eyeshadow klutz, I can appreciate the perfect look of this eyelid tattoo. These obviously aren't for a subtle evening -- more like for a party where you want to stand out big time. The winged tattoos sparkle in pink, black, sapphire, even rainbow. There's a handy "how to apply" video, but these aren't last-minute makeup tools. You'll need to take some time, especially at first (and especially if you're as beauty-challenged as I am).

Still, for a big night out, these are sparkly and festive. Plus: It's fun to flirt in them. Wink.
