There is nothing more magical than the holiday season, and nothing says “festive” better than the perfect red lipstick.

It’s Santa-esque, and it will definitely help you ward off those winter blues. So, whether you’re channeling your inner Marilyn Monroe, are looking for a red tone that Taylor Swift has in her cosmetic bag, or want to take your holiday party makeup to the next level, this season was made for you. Get ready for those selfies because you’ll definitely want to capture your newly-hued lips with the best ravishing red lipsticks for the holiday season.

 

Find the Perfect Shade

Some red lipstick shades may look amazing on your bestie, but won’t work any magic for you and your holiday party makeup. So if you really want to shine this season, find the perfect hue for you. It’s super easy to do, too! Just take a look at the veins on your wrist to determine what the best shades are for your complexion. If they’re blue, red lipsticks with cool (blue) undertones are the best for you. If your veins are green, you have a warm undertone and red-orange shades work best with your skin tone. If the veins on your wrist appear blue-green, your undertone is neutral and you can basically wear any shade of red lipstick. Lucky you. We are all envious. Now that we have that taken care of, it’s time to take a look at the trending red lipstick hues that will perfect your holiday party makeup.

Another incredibly ravishing red lipstick hue to wear this season is the dramatic and daring ones that lean a bit more to the brown side of the palette. These shades are totally something you’d see Kylie Jenner wearing, and can be super sultry and luscious.

Red lips are a total must, but that doesn’t mean you have to turn in your feminine side for something more sophisticated. Instead, glide a pinkish-red lipstick hue over your lips that offer a dash of sparkle to give you that girly glamour you want this season. The more vibrant the hue, the more flirty your look will be.

 

The best news about adding some red lipsticks into your cosmetic bag to perfect your holiday party makeup is that they are totally timeless. Sure, the holiday season is the perfect time to glide them across your lips, but they can also provide stunning beauty all year long.
