Makeup Monday: 4-in-1 Holiday Looks

Nothing says ‘festive’ more than a red lip.  I searched out the perfect red lip for YEARS until I found this one.  it is everything I have been looking for:

-Matte without being drying

-Neutral in tone (can wear with warm or cool tones)

-Universally flattering (this looks good on any skin tone; trust me I have tested it)

-Easily removable


I am so thankful to be alive when a daily matte pigment on the lips is not mandatory.  Deep down, I am a balm/chapstick girl.  I do wear a hint of tint on the reg, but the holiday season brings out the bold lip in me.


I created 4 easy looks using one eye pallet and 2 lip colors that can get you from brunch to a night out in no time!



Look 1



















I like to keep it fresh faced during the holidays. This is my go-to for any daytime holiday gathering (or mall trip).  It’s as close to a totally natural look as I get.  The eyes have a hint of shimmer, the cheeks are subtle, and the gloss helps amplify.

Look 2




















This is my favorite way to wear a red lip. I like to keep the eyes subtle to not overwhelm my face.  When wearing a red lip, your last step should be blush.  You may find you don’t even need it!

Look 3




















I’ll be real with you.  It’s so hard for me to wear statement eyes AND lips at the same time.  A lot of it reminds me of terrible stage makeup I have worn.  To keep it more holiday and less broadway show, darken your eyes using deep cool brown shadows rather than black.

Look 4




















This is my go to for a night out.  Full. On. Glam.  Darken the smokey eye with a warm cranberry (seasonal!) and add a lash to bump up the drama.  I prefer a lighter lip with this eye look, but because this palette is so complimentary to red lips, you can keep the red!
