Seeing Red: How to Pick the Perfect Red Lip Color for this Holiday Season
I love a red lip especially during the holiday season. I think the best way to top off a pretty holiday dress is with nice, beautiful red lips. Now some women get nervous when looking for the perfect red lip- here are some guidelines to go by when picking the perfect red for your skintone:
If you have fair skin stick with coral reds, this shade range will add a shot of color that isn’t too overpowering.
If you have medium skin go with anything from a true red to a pinky-cranberry shade, this will flatter your golden undertones.
- If you have dark skin sway towards dark and deep reds like burgundy or a fire engine red.
Now I wanted to share with you the red lip products that you’ll find me wearing this winter:
Stila Stay-All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso – I have to thank Birchbox for this find! This Stila product was sent to me in my Birchbox earlier this summer and right when I saw it I knew it would be perfect to wear to during winter. This product literally stays put all day- hence the name. The color is a rich, bright true red that is perfect for any holiday party!
Nars in Joyus Red– This semi matte lipstick is the most beautiful brick color. I purchased this lipstick with the intention of having a lipstick that had that “wow-factor” and boy– did it deliver! It’s super buildable so you can sheer it out for a daytime look or deepen it for an evening look.
Pür Minerals Lipgloss Stick in Taunt- I wear this lipgloss stick everyday to work and I get tons of compliments! This cool toned red is perfect for girls who aren’t fully comfortable wearing a bright red lip. They’re also super hydrating, check out our review on them here.
Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour Lipstick in Fuchsia Forever- This liquid lipstick is a super affordable alternative to the Stila Stay-All Day Lipstick. Unlike the Stila one– this color isn’t a true red, but more like a raspberry color. When I want a more sophisticated red lip- I go for this color.
