For occasions like Christmas, a combination of red, white and green keeps in air the Christmas spirit. Such an amazing combination suits our Independence/republic celebrations too.

If you have decided to give a minimalistic look, choose red costumes and red lipstick too. Re-assure that red shade of costumes and lipstick matches perfectly.
