ALL ABOUT BEAUTY: Holly Berry Lips

All About Beauty

Red lips can transcend from season to season without going stale. Red lipstick is a bold classic that will never go out of style and deserves a spot in every Fashionista’s makeup bag. No matter the season or the outfit, swiping a bold shade of red over your lips is a sure way to make a noticeable statement.

This Fashionista takes her comfy casual ensemble comprised of neutrals to another level with a pop of red. Her holly berry lips, perfect for the season, not only bring an unexpected splash of color, but also help to polish her overall look. Red lips add a sense of sophistication and can help dress up any outfit. She keeps the rest of her makeup neutral and ties her hair back into a messy bun, allowing her lipstick to take the spotlight. With a swipe of mascara and a touch of eyeliner, she complements her dark-rimmed glasses while brightening her eyes. Wearing a thin, slouchy sweater with a contrasting loose scarf and lace-up boots, this Fashionsita sports an ideal laidback, yet put-together look.

Wearing red lipstick is an easy way command attention. The key to wearing this bold shade is confidence. Before applying the lipstick prep lips to ensure they’re nice and smooth and not chapped. Next, dab on some concealer as a primer—this helps the color stay longer. Line lips with a lip liner in a similar shade (or a contrasting one for a bold twist) to keep the color in place and then fill in lips with the lipstick. To matte the color, blot lips with a tissue afterwards. Finally, expose your pearly whites with a smile to ensure you don’t have any lipstick on your teeth.

Whether you’re going for a mod, chic, glamorous or casual look, red lipstick is a fun way to play-up your ensemble. No matter the season, red is always a go-to shade. Too bad holiday baked goods can’t stay just as fresh throughout the seasons.
