It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and also the busiest! whether you’re just running out to grab last minuet gifts, or heading to a holiday party, you wanna look bomb at all times! Over the past few weeks, I have searched for the best lipsticks for any outfit this season and I’ve rounded up the best 3 lippies to help you go from day to night in a snap!
classic holiday red.
If you can’t decide what look you want to achieve for a Christmas party or holiday date night, a matte face, neutral eye, and red lip is always a perfect go to during this season. Pair your bold lip with a neutral party dress and you’ll be looking classically chic! My favorite red lip is The Balms Meet Matte Hughes in the shade “Devoted.” I think red lipstick is best when its a quick drying matte formula because it makes it easier to apply with less mistakes.
A cool tones red lip is perfect on any skin tone and make your teeth look extremely white, but getting that crisp and clean line around your lips can be a challenge because red lipstick tends to bleed. here’s a great makeup tip: put your red matte liquid lipstick on first, and then follow with a matching lip liner. Putting your liner on after hides the uneven lines and bleeding from the liquid lipstick. I’ve finally found the perfect lip liner that matches this red lip and its Rimmel London Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in the shade “024 Red Diva.”
If you don’t know by now, I love budget friendly fashion and beauty. That’s why I’m obsessed with finding super flattering drug store makeup. I’ve had my eye on the shade “Pillow Talk” by Charlotte Tilbury forever but I don’t want to spend $35 on a lipstick and then hate it. So I heard through the blogger grapevine that there’s a drugstore lipstick thats pretty much an exact dupe and boy I couldn’t drive to the store fast enough to snag it!
I’ve been wearing this lip color for probably a week now and it is the perfect shade of pink for everyday wear! It’s not too nude and not too pink and adds that extra dose of brightness and color to your look. The lipstick is Maybelline in shade “235 Warm Me up.” This lipstick pairs perfectly with the NYX Retractable Lip Liner in the shade “Nude.” This is the perfect lip color for winter that’s not super nude and not too pink either. Run to the drug store to snag it before it’s gone!
I’ve been searching for a cool toned nude lip for what feels like forever now and I finally found it! I love a good nude lipstick but there are so many shades and types out now that finding the right shade is kind of a pain. I’m naturally fair skinned and medium toned when I self tan so it’s difficult to find a nude lip that compliments both. This Maybelline lipstick in the shade “920 Nude Lust.” When I picked up this shade I also picked up the Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in the shade “105 Nude Whisper” and it’s the perfect match! I think this lip liner is my new favorite and this lip combo is now my go to everyday color because I love it that much! This shade would be perfect for a sultry smoky eye because it’s a great neutral lip!
No matter where you’re going this season, you’ll look all dolled up and ready for your kiss under the mistletoe in any of these lipsticks!
