Beautiful jewelry, combined with luxe makeup and glamorous locks make for a such a stunning, festive look! As parties are frequent, and Christmas dinners (and day) are just around the corner, here are a few of my favorite looks for hair and makeup...
* Full, loose curls without a defining part
* Easy, tousled waves
* A messy-chic updo with a proper headband
* A Victorian-esque wavy updo
* Sweeping, individual lashes
* Silvery eye shadows
* Boldly lined lids
* Nude or statement raspberry lips
* Complimentary nails
These beautiful pieces are all from Anthropologie. They offer a classic look and will finish off your outfit perfectly, with a bit of pizazz, whether you're opting for a bold, colorful ensemble, or a classic neutral one. For a more budget-friendly approach, one of my favorite things to do is add velvet ribbon to a piece that I have already. If you are not a jewelry person, but want some dazzle, try New York Nat's pretty headbands, available at Henri Bendel.
Whether you're in need of a few new pieces, or know someone who would love a new item or two this Christmas, I hope these links and ideas have helped to inspire your look this Christmas. Have you decided what look you are going for?
