When you think of traditional holiday makeup, what comes to mind? For me it’s rich red lips. I picture them at dreamy candlelit Christmas parties with lots of little black dresses and crystal glasses filled with bubbly champagne.
I think there’s just something right about the look. A red lip demands attention, but at the same time still looks sophisticated enough for semi-formal holiday party attire.
So will any red suffice? This year I’ve been all about glossy tomato red lips, and my current holiday combo features NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Foridden Red beneath NARS Lip Gloss in Greek Holiday.
I’d love to hear if a red lipstick, gloss or red lip combo has been rocking your holiday this year. Cast a vote (typing VOTE: followed by your vote) for your favorite red holiday lip in the comments…
