We are deep into the -ber months that means only one thing: a jam-packed Christmas calendar. And while we can’t help you with all the social gatherings you’ll have to navigate, we can help you look good for every one of them. This season, a singular makeup statement is all you need.

Whether it’s highlighted skin or a swipe of gem-toned lipstick, enhancing just one feature is A-OK in our book. It requires minimal effort and creates maximum impact—exactly what you need to survive the holiday rush. Looking for some inspo? Your faves will show you how it’s done. Scroll!

FOR LIPS: PAINT THE TOWN RED

A bright ruby lipstick speaks for itself, especially when it comes in a powdery-matte. Anne Curtis proves just that with a no-makeup makeup look and pop of red. The dash of Christmassy color spells all the difference between expected and interesting.

FOR SKIN: DIFFUSE THE SHINE

Natural shine along the nose bridge, cheekbones, and cupid’s bow is more than enough for the season. Pia Wurtzbach takes it further by pairing her built-in glow with an glossy pink lip. The result: a truly organic radiance without even a touch of glitter.

FOR EYES: GO GRAPHIC

When applying graphic eyeliner, there’s only one rule: keep it simple! See how Ylona Garcia wears the trend? A touch of silvery-white is like a cup of coffee for the eyes—it perks them up in an instant!

FOR BROWS: BRUSH, BRUSH, BRUSH

With the less-is-more aesthetic snowballing, great brows have become de rigeur. Take your cue from Sarah Labhati! Here, we’re guessing she employed a little gel to achieve the brushed-up brow look. We love the feathery texture and understated yet expressive arch it creates.

FOR LASHES: EXTEND YOURSELF

To add oomph to a fresh face, pile on the lengthening mascara. Trust us, you won’t need much else! Flirty, fanned-out lashes are the perfect accent to barely-there makeup—or at least, monochromatic makeup. See how sweet yet sultry it looks on Maja Salvador?
