Dress your eyes in spec-tacular shades and lips in festive brights.
Apart from protecting your peepers from the sun, putting on the right pair of shades is one of the easiest ways to get that glamorous, movie star persona. Another accessory that can instantly change up your entire look is lipstick.
These two are considered must-haves for their amazing and immediate transforming abilities; sunglasses can give you spec-tacular results in making you look more attractive, while a single swipe of lipstick does not only enhance your look but boosts your mood too! (Note that wearing red lipstick can make you feel more confident).
Match your eyewear to your lipstick

In a striking scarlet shade, the cat-eye design is accented with the British brand’s monogram motif inspired by the Year of the Ox, the Chinese zodiac sign associated with strength, tranquility and the earth. It adorns the temples of the sleek and smooth acetate frame.
Chanel interprets one of the key symbols of the House, the lion, to make Rouge Allure Velvet even more desirable. For this limited edition lipstick, the golden cap is stamped with the silhouette of the lion, so dear to Gabrielle Chanel. Superstitious and fascinated by the stars, Gabrielle considered it as much more than an emblem. The lion would quickly become a lucky charm, a caring presence and a favourite subject of hers and it would decorate each of her creations on a regular basis.
Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion De Chanel comes in eight colours consisting of different tones of red, orange and beige, all with a luminous matte finish. The colours, Beige Rugissant, Beige Ardent, Rouge Feu, Rouge Impulsif, Rouge Fauve, Rouge Triomphale, Rouge Audacieux and Rouge Vie represent traits of a lion, the king of the jungle; audacious, instinctive, fearless and passionate.
