If you have some gold powder, this is the right time to use it. For your cheeks, dust lightly using a little gold powder with a large brush. Apply gently also on your breastbone and cleavage. Again, the rule is not to overdo it. A sprinkle of golden dust is enough to look festive.

... or golden eyes and dark red lips

You may wish to reverse the effect, using the gold subtly on your eyes and highlighting the lips with a classic dark red instead. In this case, choose a good foundation that makes your skin glow for the perfect base.

Keep the eyes makeup low key. Just use a black or dark brown eye pencil and dub your lids with a gold eyeshadow and, of course, use your best black mascara.

Lastly, highlight the lips with a dark red lipstick for the perfect Christmas dinner party makeup.
