Is that a twinkle in your eye, or is it just the holidays?

Figuring out what to wear to the holiday office party can be stressful, which is why we usually stick with a tried-and-true look that doesn't involve agonizing or overspending. Keeping our outfit simple frees us up to really splash out on our beauty look, which is way more fun. If there ever was a season to try on a bit of extra shimmer or shine, it's right now, and we've found endless inspiration in the form of our favorite beauty Insta feeds. From the ultimate smoldering eyes to cascading, voluminous party hair, your holiday look starts (and the products you need to nail them) are right here.

Gasp. Skin that luminous would be a true gift from Santa. Thankfully, RMS Living Luminizer delivers the same lit-from-within glow.  Don't forget to hit the top of your lipline to pump up your pout.

 

If there's one thing the VS fashion show is good for, it's hairspiration. The Angels crew got VIP Beachwaver attention backstage, resulting in the ultimate beach wave wonder. For a similar look, this tutorial is key.

Zoe Kravitz's edgy kohl liner perfectly balances her pulled-back (but still kinda wild) ponytail. This chubby liquid liner makes drawing the perfect line a snap.

Party in the back! A few glinting strands in your ponytail instantly upgrade it to holiday splendor-ific. Looping a few lengths of gold chain around your fave pony holder would have the same effect.

Gigi's matte coral lip is more unexpected than siren red, but just as festive. This long-wearing matte is lightweight and long-wearing, perfect for party-hopping. 

 

Classic, retro, cool. This super-precise look on eyes and lips requires some skill and serious confidence. The deep wine hue on lips is easier to pull off if it's a transfer-proof shade like this.

Metallic magic on eyes and lips works if you keep things in neutral. High-wattage, pearly cream shadow and the ultimate peach-toned shimmer lip are all it takes.

Move over, mermaid crowns. If a star goes up on the tree, a halo of them in your hair is perfectly apropo. We love this selection of glittery hair accessories for a similar vibe.
