The holiday season is full of reasons to get dressed up and looking your best. Whether you’re headed out to a Christmas party with the family or a New Year’s Eve rager with your roommates, here are three ways you can spice up your lipstick palette! Plus, who doesn’t want an excuse to burn through all that holiday money at Sephora?
A Deep Red
Everyone knows that a red lip stands out. This year, the trend is going a little darker. I’m wearing ‘Pencil Me In’ from Colourpop cosmetics. I’m a bit of a Colourpop addict since their prices are so affordable and their quality is outstanding! Pull out a berry or burgundy lip and make a bold statement this winter.
A Classic Nude
This year, bold might be better, but you still can’t go wrong with the classics. I’m wearing ‘Little Stitious,’ a pinky nude from Colourpop. Whether it’s an everyday look or a soft glam, you really can’t go wrong with a nude. In order to find the nude that fits you, look at your undertones. For example, if you have you have an olive skin tone with cool undertones, you’re going to want to look for a shade darker than your complexion that has more of a pink hue.
Holiday season is lipstick season. Colors get darker and bolder. This winter, spice things up with something out of your comfort zone. I’m wearing ‘JV’ from Colourpop, one of their matte Lux lipsticks. Both the matte and satin lux lips are super pigmented and comfortable.
