Emerald, Sapphire, & Ruby: Your New Holiday Makeup Go-Tos

Every girl has her own comfort zone when it comes to makeup. For me, there are a few things I always resort to: neutral brown and beige shadows with a touch of shimmer; a bright pink or red lip; or if I'm wearing eyeliner, a black winged tip is in order. But, 'tis the season to shake things up, what with all the office holiday party invites and fancy dinner dates dotting my iCal. So, I'm pulling out the emerald greens, sapphire blues, and royal violet hues for a makeup look that's the opposite of neutral. Save your glitzy baubles for another time. This jewel-hued makeup look is all you need to make a statement this season.
