Accessories and makeup for the holiday season


When you have finally picked out your perfect holiday clothes for the parties you will attend, the next step is picking out holiday accessories and makeup.  With this holiday, like any other, it is a great time to experiment and take risks.

Wearing red lips and bright eyeshadow is perfectly acceptable, so long as the makeup is applied lightly.  I usually recommend just focusing on lips and wearing black eyeliner with red lipstick, but on the holidays its okay to be bold and reinvent your look.  Eyeshadow in bright gold, silver, and jewel tones can be worn with matte red lips or pink ones.  Dior sold at Sephora and other stores one of my favorite brands, has a holiday collection out this year with bright pinks and silvers that would look gorgeous at parties.  If you can't afford Dior, you can always find makeup that matches the holiday collection colors at CVS or Walgreens. Bright makeup goes very well with a simple or sexy holiday look.  You can view examples of holiday outfits in one of my other articles.

Carrying a bright clutch purse with your simple black dress will really make you stand out, as will large earrings or a large bracelet, but remember, to wear one large piece at a time so you don't look like a decoration and stand out too much.  Aldo always has great accessories for affordable prices.  They look good with many outfits but don't look cheap.

Below, you will see a list of accessories and also makeup you can wear to holiday parties.  Have fun shopping everyone.
