Mulberry lip + French braidWhere: Ugly Christmas sweater party
Why: I wanted a playful, funky updo to go with the fun vibe of the holiday party. Plus, the plum statement lip adds a little polish to the look. -- Cinya Burton, Senior Associate Editor
Get the look: Run Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Oil in Cream, $45, through damp hair to add a little shine and help the style stay in place. Then create a deep side part and French braid the front right section. Finally, bobby pin the ends into a messy twist in the back.
Apply MAC Cosmetics Pigment in Melon, $21, on eyelids for a subtle, peachy shimmer effect and layer on three coats of Givenchy Phenomen Eyes Mascara, $30. Finish with a light dusting of Guerlain Rose Aux Joues in Peach Boy, $50, along the cheek bones and a swipe of Tom Ford Lipstick in Black Orchid, $48, on your lips.
