Easy Classic Holiday Makeup

A red pout is so classic during this time of year and it’s ideal for looking polished and put together in a matter of minutes – with just a swipe of red lipstick.  Working in the makeup industry over the years, I discovered a lot of women are intimidated by this color or think they can’t pull it off, but trust me, you can and you will!  🙂  You just have to find the right shade of red.

Excuse my wonky eyebrows – this was after a rainy day walking around downtown Boston. lol

I recommend going to your local department store and trying on several shades or ask the salesperson to assist you.  Also, if you think the color is too harsh, blot off the lipstick and blend it in with your fingers for a more natural look.  For another less dramatic look, try a red lipgloss to achieve the same rosy effect.

I found the perfect classic red shade today and I love that it’s matte because the staying power is exactly what I need during all the holiday festivities! The liquidstick is in the shade Danger and is from ISOCIETY Cosmetics – you can purchase the lippie here.
