Simple Holiday Look – Make It Red

The magical season has begun. And so is the magic of red lips! When you want to get dressed up for the holiday why not try red lips?

The holiday season is here. You've decked the halls with lots of hollies. The lights on the trees twinkle bright and merry. But what about you? How can you switch up your looks for the holidays?

One of the best ways to do it is with a simple red lip. They are a great consideration for the holiday look, or any look, for that matter. If you are looking for makeup that pops, then red lips are the answer. When you adorn your lips with true red color this time of year, you will not look out of place. Your shine will be brighter than the Christmas tree if you are highlighting your look with red lips.

You can add a little spice to your day and freshen up your look with some fantastic red lips in a variety of shades. Just about anyone can because red lips can look natural or they can stand out. It all comes down to the shade that you use.  The results are amazing if you do it right. Just keep a few things in mind.

Use a lip liner first, then fill the entire lip area with a liner pencil before adding red lipstick. Top it off with a gloss for an extra special look. You'll need to downplay the rest of your face. Your eye makeup should not compete with other makeup. Still, you can achieve a nice look with neutral colors with a bit of shimmer.

Putting It Together

  1. Start by washing your face with a cleanser/toner. Then, apply moisturizer (with sunscreen for daytime).
  2. Apply foundation (matched to your skin tone). Touch up uneven skin tones with a cover stick.
  3. Use a makeup brush to apply powder (matching skin tone) to finish and hold the look. Brush with light, downward strokes.
  4. Cover the entire eye area from lid to eyebrow from corner to corner with a light neutral color. Add a darker neutral color to the lid area.
  5. Use the separate darker colors on the outer edge of the eye in a sideways V shape. One part of V will line the eye above lashes (halfway across) and another side of V should be an increase by the lid. Smudge this V with a q-tip.
  6. Apply mascara of choice. You can add another layer for thick lush lashes if desired.
  7. Brush your eyebrows upward and outward. Add a brow color lightly to define.
  8. Outline lips with true red lip liner, then fill with lipstick. And gloss on lips if desired. You will want to put your lipstick on last.
  9. Don't forget to add the holiday red look on your nails as well.

Use accessories that draw attention to your face. Turning your look around is easy and red lips are the quickest way to get there. Anyone can do it and look great.

Keep your wardrobe simple when using red lipstick. Remember you are highlighting your face and not elaborate prints or other fashion.
