There are rules to attending a holiday party. 1) Stay far, far away from the mistletoe, especially when pervy co-workers are lurking nearby. 2) Arrange a designated driver or a cab service so you can enjoy all the mulled wine you want. 3) Even if the dress code calls for you to wear a Santa onesie or reindeer jumper, make an effort to add some festive holiday glam to your look, because, hey, it's a party, right?
To give you just the right amount of inspiration, we asked MAC senior artist Rachel O'Donnell
to create three gorgeous beauty looks guaranteed to steal the show at any seasonal soiree
