Tis the season for your social calendar to be chock full of holiday events and parties. To mix it up this year, try opting for more daring beauty looks. Whether it’s a show-stopping manicure, a shimmery smoky eye or luminous skin, you can pick and choose how extreme you want to go. Check out our picks below for getting a hot holiday look.
For nails that are anything but neutral:
For a manicure that’s truly spectacular, it’s hard to beat a complete glitter mani in this season’s hottest shade, rose gold. This would be ideal for a fun holiday party or New Year’s Eve.

For eyes that sparkle:
Add a bit of shimmer to your look with sparkly shadows. Layer them for a special party-ready smoky eye. Apply a neutral across the entire lid and then layer darker shades on top for a multi-dimensional effect.

For skin that glows:
A highlighter or illuminizer will make you look like you have a lit-from-within glow. Apply along the cheek bones, brow bones, on either sides of your nose and in the inner corners of your eyes for a brighter complexion. This pick can also be worn as eyeshadows and will open up the eye area, too.
