The holidays are a great time to enjoy playing with makeup in preparation for festivities. These two classic makeup looks never go out of style and are perfect for this time of year.

Red lips are always a favorite of mine in any season…especially during the holidays. I love pairing a red lip with warm golden bronze hues. Hues like copper and champagne are a great compliment to red shades. Line the eyes with a brown liner, smoke it out a bit , add mascara and voila! This look is quick to apply and gorgeous to wear.

For a great video on applying a perfect red lip check out my Pin Up makeup post.

A classic smokey eye never goes out of style. Jazz it up by applying a gold shimmery shadow on the inner corners of the eyes. It instantly opens up your eyes and gives it a softer feel. Make sure to keep the look balanced by keeping the lips light. For a step by step guide on creating a smokey eye check out my Smokey Eye Tut.

I had a lot of fun shooting these with John Landers! He is great! His photographic style is minimalistic, clean, and striking. All things I adore. Make sure to check out his blog.
