This season’s look for lips is definitely a bold red. You can never go wrong with a red lip, especially during the holidays. Today I was in a particularly festive mood and decided to rock this red lip while I was out Christmas shopping. I think the trick to nailing this look is first finding a great shade in cranberry, merlot, or even a cinnamon, and second choosing a matte finish for a more current and updated chic look. Matte lipsticks are great because they are long wear, which means that they are fuss free. Perfect for parties and sipping cocktails, you don’t have to worry about what your lips are looking like every 5 minutes. Also, can I just mention that if you get caught under the mistletoe, you won’t have to worry about lip smudging?

 Here are some of my absolute favorite lip colors. Be bold and rock this look all day everyday!
