While metallic eyeshadows and red lips are holiday season staples, there's nothing fresher or more flattering than purple.
As a bonus, jewel-tones are hot this season, and purple goes with pretty much any of them. Mix a couple of different rich shades throughout your makeup and outfit choices and you'll have a stunning ensemble.
If you're going for sophisticated purple nails, Lippmann Collection – Nail Lacquers in Dark Side of the Moon is the perfect choice. For added festive flair, paint on a glittery topcoat.
Plum eyeshadow is always a good choice, and Jane Iredale – PurePressed Eye Shadow has the perfect shade – Wine & Roses. Use a light pink shimmer all over your lids and the purple in the creases for added dimension, then finish off with plenty of mascara.
Even purple lipstick is becoming a trend lately, and you don't have to go dark and vampy. There are plenty of purpley-pink shades out there that will complement any skin tone – you just need a bit of confidence to rock it!
