You’re Not Too Old For: Bright Makeup

Think you’re too old for a bold lip or a creative eye? Think again. This holiday-party season we encourage you to celebrate with a bright new hue. With a little thought to application, you can swing a vibrant shade in an understated way that doesn’t say, “I got a makeover by my 5-year-old granddaughter.”

Tips

The easiest way to dip your toes in the bold color pool is to, well, dip your toes — and your fingers. If you’re like us, jewel tones leave you breathless, and Deborah Lippmann’s dark emerald Wild Thing polish is perfection on every skin tone. Available at Deborah Lippmann, $20.

Kevyn Aucoin Bloodroses Lipstick

Lips

It wouldn’t be winter without a beautiful berry lip. Kevyn Aucoin does a color called Bloodroses that comes in pencil, gloss, lipstick, and Lip Satin, so you can pick the intensity and finish. Seem like too much? Apply, blot, and swipe on a balm. Presto! Subtle stain. Available at Barneys, $25-$48.

Diorshow Mascara in Navy

Lashes

We’re not suggesting neon fringe, but there is something about the surprise of a subtle color on lashes we love. Swipe on the cult-worshipped Diorshow in navy for a change, or try YSL’s Volume Effet Faux Cils in Fascinating Violet. A coat of black tones things down if the thought of purple lashes scares you. Diorshow available at Violet Grey, $28.50; YSL available at BlueMercury, $32.

Hourglass Color Field Eyeshadow

Lids

If the idea of a smokey eye seems over the top, think olive green and brown instead of heavier gray and black. Focus the green on the center of the eyelid, leaving the crease for shades of brown. We love the Hourglass eyeshadow palette in Color Field. Available at Net-a-Porter, $58.
