It’s November, which means the holidays are officially here! The time has come to swap your Starbucks order for something festive and start planning your party season looks.

When it comes to beauty, the traditional red lip is always a holiday go-to, but this season, we’re encouraging you to test some new trends that are equally as eye catching. See some of our favorite, statement making looks of the season, rouge pout not included!

Emerald Eyes

The perfect swap for a statement lip is a standout stare. A green eye look is unexpected, yet perfectly fitting for the holidays. Emerald tones are often associated with Christmas when it comes to fashion and decor, so why not give the shade a little smoke and smolder for your eyes!

Try FLOWER Beauty’s Pop Fantastic Eyeshadow in Bang for a matte look or Nars Single Eyeshadow in Night Porter for a shimmery look. Or mix both!

Purple Lips

Remember what we said… put the red lipstick down! Trade your crimson and ruby tones for violet and plum if you want to stand out at your next holiday party. Incredibly versatile, the shade looks stunning on all skin tones. So paint that pout and get under the mistletoe!

Try Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Violet Fury or Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in 89 Prune Power.

Red Graphic Liner

Graphic liner, but make it holiday. This kind of liner was a major trend for 2019, seen everywhere from runways to red carpets. It’s the perfect bold and sexy accessory when paired with a nude lip and your fav LBD.

Try Colourpop’s Try Me BFF Liquid Liner in Bright Red or Kiko’s Lasting Precision Automatic Eyeliner And Khôl in 04 Spicy Burgundy.

Metallic Glitter Eyes

You’ve seen it, you love it: ‘Euphoria eyes’ clearly dominated the end of 2019. It would be crazy NOT to make use of this super glam trend during holiday party season. Metallic tones like silver, bronze, and gold keep the look chic and dressy, while still maintaining the fun and electric energy of the trend.

Try Glossier Play’s Glitter Gelée in Bijoux Bijoux or Too Faced’s Tutti Frutti – Twinkle Twinkle Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow in Guava Glitz.
