Bright Lights, Big City | Makeup to Illuminate Your Nights

Winter may be upon us — with all its white, black, beige, gray and, well, greige — but that doesn’t mean your makeup palette has to reflect the tones of the season.

Here’s your chance to become the brightest star at any winter soirée.

The Rouge Dior lipstick collection offers 32 bold, attention-commanding shades inspired by the deep and luxurious colors of Dior Haute Couture gowns. In other words, wear this and all eyes will be on you. $32, Dior.com

These three lacquers by butter LONDON — Tart With a Heart (pink glitter with a touch of gray), The Black Knight (black, pink, blue and silver glitter suspended in a black base) and Fairy Lights (a “liquid metal” rosy pink) — are ready for a night on the town. $14 each, ButterLondon.com

To bust the winter drab, Smashbox created its Snappy Holidays collection chock-full of bright, color-rich creams and powders. And you’ll find all of fall’s best hues in the “Click You’re It” Eye Palette, complete with 15 eye shadows, five cream eye liners, a mini photo finish lid primer and “Get the Look” cards. $49, Smashbox.com

The creamy, velvety smooth Pure Color by Tom Pecheaux eye pencils from Estee Lauder come in deeply pigmented electric teal and blackened sapphire, cocoa, plum, olive and rich black to dramatically offset your peepers. $20, EsteeLauder.com

Clinique High Impact Mascara comes in a “brightening” shade of black, and lengthens and thickens lashes to make a visual impact like no other mascara can. $14.50, Clinique.com

Whether you wear NARS Laguna Body Illuminator (available in four different shades) by itself, or mix it in with your foundation, moisturizer or blush, its shimmer will have other party-goers wondering just what it is you’re glowing about. $29, Nars.com

In honor of a milestone, a beloved cosmetics company has created something lip color enthusiasts are obsessing over. The Bobbi Brown 20th Anniversary Lip Palette features the 10 original lip colors launched by Bobbi Brown in 1991, plus 10 more modern shades and a mini lip brush. $60, Bobbibrown.com

It may be below freezing outside, but your cheeks will look warm and flushed with a touch of Sephora Collection Colorful Blush in “raspberry sheen” (pictured) — a rich rosy brown with a silver shimmer, and “golden spice” — a reddish chestnut with gold shimmer. $13, Sephora.com
