And boy, are we impressed with them all.

How to get the look

It seems the way to go is to embrace gold, green and red shades – whether that’s through glitter or matte shadows – and then go to town with embellishments and illustrations. Slap on a few crafting crystals with some eyelash glue or get creative and etch on your favourite Christmas decorations on your skin if you want to go all out – we’re sure your colleagues will be mesmerised over Christmas lunch.

Festive lips

Plus, as it’s the season of being extra, why not add a festive lip to match?
