You can’t pull off a truly punk rock look without adding some amazing makeup. But that doesn’t mean your face has to become the focal point of your overall style. Hints of edge added by a bold lip color, a shocking eye shadow shade or a high-impact blush can go a long way toward amping up an extreme outfit. Here are eight beauty products we love that will help kick your style up to an 11.

The canary yellow base is infused with gor­geous, glam glitter, making this polish a must-have sparkling shade for the holidays. It also screams extreme — if you want your nails to take center stage, look no further. We also recommend Lippman’s Cleopatra in New York ($19), which gives a similar edgy effect with its studded, gold-on-black glitter look. sephora.com, $19

Eye Shadow in Rage
This year, NARS’s limited-edition holiday collection is inspired by Guy Bourdin, the famed French fashion photographer whose shocking, sensual shots broke the rules of conventional ad-house photography.
