Dasher, Dancer, Donner and ... oh, hey there, Vixen! Be bold this holiday season — even if it means getting a little lippy.

When prepping for a seasonal celebration, we're always consumed with thoughts of finding the perfect outfit, when really, the easiest way to make a statement sits smack-dab in the middle of our face. Red is once again all the rage this year, and when it comes to addressing your pout, the haute-er, the better.
