You know it's not very fashionable to show up at a holiday party looking like a Christmas elf, which is why you may balk at first when thinking about wearing a green and red combination. But as long as you choose the right shades, your ensemble will look anything but seasonal.
Cosmopolitan magazine raved about Michelle Monaghan's look for the premiere of Machine Gun Preacher, which showcased a fiery magenta lip shade paired with a rich emerald dress. The jewel tones worked together perfectly without screaming Christmas, which makes it perfect for occasions where you want to look festive without trying too hard.
Try a lipstick like BORGHESE – B Moisture Advanced Care Lipcolour in Apricotta and make sure it stays put by lining your lips with a similar shade beforehand. Use a subtle copper color for an eyeshadow, like BABOR – Eye Shadow in Fox. Skip the black liner and go for brown instead. Then, put on a flattering emerald green dress and feel free to bask in the compliments you'll receive.
