Holiday style is about adding a little something extra some bling, sparkle or a teensy bit of drama. Take advantage of the bold holiday colors to bring a pop of color into your normal routine. Here are some ideas:
- Try a new color eye shadow - green, yellow, purple or blue – and finish with a black rimmed liner
- Turn heads with a matte purple lipstick
- Have your nails be your accessory - try a pale gray or a deep sapphire
- Bring radiance to your face with a little sweep of bronzer
- Try adding curl to your hair where you usually go straight
- And accessories, rings, bling scarves and bracelets can bring together your look
