What I love about December and the holiday season is the glamourous, yet festive feeling of wearing a red lip! I used to shy away from bold lip colors but now love this sexy, sultry look! I found my confidence in a red lip came from finally finding reds that suit my skin tone! I love to pair this lip with some gold shadow with a bit of sparkle when I'm heading to a holiday party! Here are some of my favorites:
Le Metier de Beaute L'Empress Lip Kaleidoscope in Silk Road, Le Metier de Beaute Ready to Wear Kaleidoscope by Oscar de la Renta in Red Chiffon, and Le Metier de Beaute Lip Creme in In The Know Bordeaux are all deep, true reds (and extremely similar, but gorgeous nonetheless!) The Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella is a warm, matte red. This pencil is perfect for layering underneath other lipsticks or glosses to help keep the color on all night! For more wine toned reds, I like the Nars Lipstick in Afghan Red and the Tom Ford Private Blend Lip Color in Black Orchid. Finally for a gold sparkle on top of any lip color I use the Nars Lip Gloss in Moon Fleet.
