Tis the season for red lips, cat eyes, and gilded lids!

Red Lips

It’s a classic for a reason. Red lips evoke the warmth and glamour of Christmas Past. Best of all, anyone can pull it off.
To combat color bleeding or smudging, line your mouth with a matching liner or set the stage with a lip primer that will help keep any bright pigment in place. For true lipstick migration-proofing, nothing beats a reverse lip liner, which uses a clear waxy formula to form a barrier. Finally, for precise lipstick application, use a lip brush.

Gilded Shadow

Metallic shadows are always a holiday staple. Estée Lauder’s Cyber Eyes gelée shadows come in 16 high-shine, futuristic shades perfect for both wet and dry application. Or, for an alternative, try Laura Mercier’s Art Deco Muse Collection, which includes four festive shadows in colors like Gilded Moonlight and Rose Gold.
For a high-fashion foil effect, moisten your shadow brush before applying, or smooth on a cream shadow and a tap powder shadow on top with fingers (bonus: this has massive staying power — even after your third eggnog).

Classic Cat Eye

Polished black liquid liner look shows no sign of declining in popularity, with every major brand hustling to debut their pen versions. Our new favorites have a patent leather-like sheen that makes them a perfect complement to the glitter and shine of all the season’s parties.
