A bright red lip has and always will be a popular winter lip color because of the Holiday season. This year, change things up a bit a go for a color which is festive but also pops. Doing a dramatic lip is great way to enhance your makeup look for the evening. The great thing about doing a dramatic lip color is that you don’t have to do as much to the rest of your face to get a chic look. It’s a rule of thumb that if you are doing a dramatic lip color to avoid doing heaving eye makeup. My recommendation is to use an eye shadow with neutral, gold, and brown colors. Having both an eye catching lip color and heavy eye shadow will look extremely unnatural and leave you looking clown like. It is best to go easy on the eye shadow or skip it all together. If you do skip eye shadow, do a top eyeliner with a dark mascara. Using false eye lashes is also a great way to make your eyes pop without making yourself look unnatural. The best ways to achieve these lip looks is to exfoliate, moisturize, and use a lip liner before applying the lip stick. You can find out more about lip exfoliation in my article DIY Exfoliators. All of these lip colors are NYX brand which can be purchased at your local drug store.
