Rooney Mara has been serving up major style on the red carpet ever since her debut on the scene. Now, she’s given us the perfect look to replicate for all of those fabulous impending soirees. Who knew such simplicity could make for such an impact? While dark lips come fall time are nothing new, Rooney has proven, yet again, that the statement lip is the ideal way to perk up those basic black dresses this winter. Copy this beyond-hot look to knock the holiday style game out of the park this year and every year to follow.
Dark lips are all the rage this season and luckily for beauty lovers, there are a ton of affordable drug store brands that produce the same statement-making pout as high-end brands like Chanel and Tom Ford. For a cheap and exceptionally chic option, pick up Milani’s lip color in Black Cherry. Even brands like NYC and Wet n’ Wild carry luxe-looking shades that will keep you looking fly on a dime. A fierce lip color like this is all you need to pull off an enviable holiday party look with a simple swipe of liquid eyeliner or a subtle, neutral smokey eye are the perfect complement.
What’s the perfect beauty look if not accompanied by the perfect ‘do? Pictures are a plenty during the holidays, so you’re going to want a no-fuss hairstyle that is the epitome of effortlessly chic. Slicked back pony tails and sleek parts are ideal for looking polished and put-together for any gathering. To be on the safe side, carry a travel-size comb and hair spray for touch ups. Sophisticated hairstyles like this allow for some major risk-taking with your cosmetics, making it perfect for glamorous nights out.
