The M.A.C visuals of two ladies out on the town in have inspired us to take an androgynous-chic approach to dressing up this Christmas. When your clothes are minimal and almost mannish, you can afford to go slightly overboard with the sparkle.

The brand has a new Colourdrenched Pigment, with highly-pearlised creamy hues that glisten against the skin. Check out the shades below.

And if you dare to go dark when it comes to the lips, step out of your comfort zone in nightime shades of dusky lilac, ruby rouge and blackened plum.

From $34-$59. At M.A.C counters from 23 October
