Personally, it will be a miracle if I even put a damper on Christmas (I do not plan to leave the house), but if you have a social agenda on hand for the holidays, I’ve put together some ideas to make you * Cue deck * music hall with MAC and Bobbi.
Chances are you own a deep berry or red lip color, so you’re halfway there. Now add pure gold or silver shimmery shade on top for easy and festive look. Try MAC LUSTREGLASS in Lustrewhite or soluble. Or try all-in-one color plus a shimmering shine, like Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Raspberry.
You can never go wrong with dark eyes (well, as you can), but the look is classic and can be appropriate in almost any social setting. For more conservative events, go easy on the application and choose lighter colors, such as brown or bronze. For more informal events, to experiment with color and go with the green, blue, purple or dark eyes.

Think of tinsel and ornaments are the only things that need to shine? Nope! Decorate your eyes in a metallic eyeshadow. For cool shades, try silver eyeshadow, urban decay gunmetal. To warm shades, try gold as MAC Eyeshadow in Bronze.
I love the looks that are as natural as dramatic at the same time. Open your eyes and serve them doe eyes. If you increase the volume and definition mascara just does not do the trick for you, grab some Ardell fashion lashes and Duo Lash Glue in the dark (best suited for dark hair). Need some advice?

Oh the joy of seeing peach blush on the different shades of brown. It looks good on all of us, but the trick is to get one pigmented enough to show beautiful. NARS blush Gina or Illamasqua Powder Blush in Excite are two that come to mind for every skin tone.
Do you really want to knock them out? Put some bronzer on the cheeks, and then apply a peach blush on top. Your cheeks will look crazy. I am currently in love with CoverGirl Queen Collection Bronzer ebony bronze.
