Buckle your seatbelts, ladies, because we’re headed straight into the Christmas party rush. But don’t stress out too much—beauty-wise, we’ve got you covered. Check out these stunning holiday updates for your lips, tips, and tresses. Yes, you can pull these off!
1. VAMPY LIPS
Are you afraid of the dark? Don’t be. Deep lip color is something you should experiment with at least once (see how good it looks on Shay Mitchell?). And what better time than the holiday season, when makeup gets deliciously dramatic?
GET THE LOOK: We like NARS’ Valparaiso, a velvety matte burgundy, and MAC’s Rebel, a dark, gothic, satin-finish magenta. Love lip liner? Try Revlon’s ColorStay Pencil in Plum or Raisin.
2. DECADENT NAILS
Whether you opt for a glimmering jewel tone or heavy-duty sparkle, your nails deserve glamour.
GET THE LOOK: For a gem-toned mani-pedi, try Seche’s Hypnotic or Bella (bottom half of photo). And for glitter overload, check out Deborah Lippmann’s Ruby Red Slippers and Across the Universe (top half of photo).
3. HAIR JEWELRY
Many of us have left our hair accessory days behind—way behind—but this tween trend has gotten a grown-up girl makeover! A romantic headband like Lorde’s is a beautiful finishing touch for a Christmas party outfit. Or even a sophisticated barrette, like Anne Hathaway’s—just one, mind you, or you risk sending your look straight back to grade school. #TBT
