There are a few holiday glam trends that are guaranteed winners. Some gold sparkly eyeshadow, a handful of bright red nails, a red lip—it’s impossible to go wrong with any of these styles. More festive than just rocking them yourself is adopting the trend with a family member matching by your side.

Or, that’s what Alexa Ray Joel and Christie Brinkley must have thought when they stepped out for Christmas Eve dinner in their matching bright red lipstick. They weren’t twinning from head to toe by any means—each wore their own elevated holiday style—but the red lip added a chic touch to both of their outfits and made for the sweetest mother-daughter moment.

“‘Twas the eve before Christmas / And all through the town / Families near and far 🥀 / Came rejoicing abound 💫 / Dressed in burgundy, green 🌿 / Crimson, golden, and white 🕊️ / To eat, drink, and be merry / ‘Fore a long winter’s night.🍃🌹🌜,” Joel captioned a series of Instagram photos that she shared from the evening, including a festive poem along with the carousel of snaps.

“You do look like sisters … beautiful ❤️,” one follower complimented the pair in the comment section.

“Talent and Beauty runs deep in this family. Merry Christmas 🎁,” another added.

If you’re looking to match with your family member at the next holiday gathering, this duo just convinced us that you don’t need more than a touch of festive glam to do so.
