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? Red lips are sensual and classic. They are timeless and will look great during any season for any celebration. 

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? When you want to feel fancy, feel dressed up, then think about doing a little red lip. This can go with just about anything as far as fashion goes too. A bold red lip can instantly elevate your look, adding a touch of glamour and sophistication. 

Nothing screams festive cheer like the perfect red lipstick. A simple red lip is one of the best ways to do it. They are an excellent consideration for the holiday look, or any look, for that matter. Red lips are the answer if you are looking for makeup that pops. Your shine will be brighter than the Christmas tree if you highlight your look with red lips.

1. Shades of Red

You can add spice to your day and freshen your look with fantastic red lips in various 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 excellent if you do it right. Just keep a few things in mind.

The key to finding your perfect red lies in understanding your skin's undertones:

  • Cool Undertones: If your skin has cool undertones (bluish veins and silver jewelry flatters you more), opt for red lipsticks with a blue or pink base. Think of cranberry or cherry reds.
  • Warm Undertones: If your skin has warm undertones (you have greenish veins, and gold jewelry looks better on you), go for orange-based reds like brick or rusty red.
  • Neutral Undertones: If you have a mix of both (both gold and silver look equally flattering), lucky you! Most shades of red will likely suit your complexion.

2. Putting It Together

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 unique look. You'll need to downplay the rest of your face. Your eye makeup should not compete with other cosmetics. Still, you can achieve a nice look with neutral colors with a bit of shimmer. Consider a long-wear or matte formula to ensure your red lipstick lasts through holiday meals and merriment. Always check your lipstick after eating and touch it up if needed. Now that you've found your shade, here are some tips to apply your red lipstick like a pro:

  • Exfoliate: Begin with smooth lips. Exfoliate gently with a lip scrub or a toothbrush to remove dry skin.
  • Prime: Apply a thin layer of lip balm to moisturize your lips. Allow it to absorb before you move on to the next step.
  • Outline: Use a lip liner that matches your lipstick to outline your lips. This step can help define your lips and prevent your lipstick from bleeding.
  • Apply: Apply your lipstick. For precision, you can use a lip brush.
  • Blot and Reapply: Blot your lips with a tissue and then reapply another layer of lipstick. This can help your lipstick last longer.
  • Clean Up: Make any necessary touch-ups with a concealer to create a clean, sharp edge.
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.


Final Thoughts

Red lipstick is a holiday makeup staple that adds a festive touch to any look. By understanding your skin's undertones and applying your lipstick carefully, you can rock a glamorous red lip this holiday season. Remember, makeup is a form of self-expression. So, have fun, experiment, and let your holiday spirit shine through your red lipstick smile!
