Bright Lips

If eye makeup is not your thing, go for really bold lips.  This year, vivid red is the go-to color, which is perfect for this time of year. Vibrant pinks are also a close second.  There are so many shades to choose from, so finding one that works for your skin tone is easy.  If you really want to be in the holiday spirit, stay away from shades of coral since they are a bit too summery.

Highlighting

Holidays make me think of cool, icy colors, which can easily be used in your makeup palette.  Light, pretty pinks with shimmering silver and white look gorgeous together!  They also help you to highlight your whole face without making one feature stick out.

Icy Blue

While there is a lot of green and red floating around this time of year, blue is another color often associated with winter.  Mixing baby blues with steel grays is a powerful combination.  These colors can be turned into a smokey eye or used more subtly to brighten or bring out blue eyes.  Even if you don’t have blue eyes, the combination of an icy blue and a darker gray is an unexpected, but totally gorgeous blend.
