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)
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
