Smoky golden browns can also be the focal point of your holiday look, rather than the lips. Black eyeliner paired with a pop of gilded gold liner really brought this look together for me.

Less can definitely be more when you want to wear your favorite bright holiday red lipstick/gloss! One of my favorite ways to wear bold lips is by simply wearing a little colored liner (gold is always a go-to for me) on the lower lash line, lots of mascara, and that’s about it!

Ultra black smoky eye with an icy twist is a great way to go wintry without being subtle. The usage of both Vex and Pink Opal pigment really give it that ice princess feel and make it not just straight black.

Subtle, cool-edged neutrals are another way to define eyes and still wear a bolder lip color. The black eyeliner on both the top and upper lash lines (but note you can always modify this!) really give eyes more definition and make them *pop* without being too much. I’d pair this with a bronzy plum, bright blue-based red, or a deep berry for the holidays.

Taupe-y browns also work well when you want a bolder, more holiday-esque lip (which always have a tendency to be bold, bright, or deep). I never thought such a smoky brown eye would really work with a darker lip, but this worked fabulously (IMO, obviously!) with an ultra rich, magenta-pink lip.

Soft gold with amber work together to create a muted sunset-ish kind of look that’s got the holidays written all over it without it being in bright lights. I’d pair this with either a deep bronzy red or a bronzy nude.
