This deep green shade focuses on the eyes. When paired with nude lips, it remains wearable and lets this gorgeous color speak for itself. When applying a bold color on the eye, you usually have to pare down the details and avoid complicated shading.

Red lips are a classic Christmas makeup and they come in all sorts of shades and styles. This orange-red lip look, combined with flawless skin and simple black eye makeup, looks more modern than the classic red, as well as avoiding bright colors on the rest of the face. Since color accents are essential for the new beauty, try a bright orange as an alternative to a classic red lip. A shot of orange on a pretty face always looks chic and not garish.

Play with colors and rhinestones
