A red lip is the perfect accessory for the holidays!
It’s bright, it’s fun and with one quick swipe can turn your look from boring to bold.

A well defined brow paired with a kick-ass red lip is classic.
It’s also a quick and easy look to pull off.
A red lip makes such a statement on it’s own that you can scale back the rest of your makeup, keeping the eye and cheek simple and letting the lip do all the work for you.
My favorite red lip look for the holiday season is a rich, matte lip paired with glowing, luminous skin.

Nars Pure Matte Lips are super pigmented and very long wearing, which is ideal when you are going bold – you don’t want to be wearing a lipstick formula that requires a lot of maintenance and upkeep.
