Winter is one of the best seasons for makeup, from Christmas’ boost of red and greens to New Year’s love for golds and silvers. As this unofficial yet official color scheme begins its takeover this time of year, we can also contribute with lipstick. While Fall was a nice brown lip moment, it’s time to add some bold color to your pout.
We’ll most likely see more red lips this holiday than usual, especially for family gatherings and Holiday date nights. From MAC Cosmetics’ legendary Ruby Woo to Fenty Beauty’s Uncensored Stunna Lip Paint, your lips won’t budge or smudge with these vivid choices. Although red will always remain a classic, other swatches fit the palette that pushes you outside a traditional lip. Try a deep blue-hued Scorpiris from KVD Beauty, a shimmery gold Treat Yo Self by Sephora Collection, a Grinch-loving green Valentine Verdante by Gucci, or the vibrant violet Rebel by Fashion Fair. While all these bold choices may seem nice, some of you might want to stick to a brown lip, and that’s okay. You’ll likely fall in love with Thrilling by Rare Beauty or Heartbreaker by The Lip Bar.
No matter where you’ll be this holiday season, give your glam some elevation with a bold pout. We’ve rounded up our favorite 15 lippies to try from now to New Year’s that pair up with the holiday celebrations. From monochromatic to shimmers and metallics, it doesn’t hurt to try something new.
