Beauty Spotlight: 10 Fabulous Lipsticks To Achieve The Perfect Red Lip For The Holidays



Every woman I have ever talked to all have one thing in common: they love to wear a red lip. It’s something about wearing a red lip that gives a woman that extra pep in her step and makes her feel more confident and alluring. During the holidays, a red lip goes perfectly with any outfit and can really amp your festive mood.

The trick to finding the perfect red lipstick is finding a shade that almost anyone can pull off because many shades of red are either too orange, too bright or too blue. Not all of us are armed with the knowledge of what shade is the right one for us nor do we all have our own personal makeup artist to advise us.

Now it is said you have to find the right shade for your skin tone. While that is true, other things also play a factor along with skin tone like your hair color, the color of the eyeshadow you pair with the red lipstick and overall, how minimal or strong your makeup is. When in doubt, just visit your local makeup counter at Macy’s, Sephora, ULTA or other department stores and ask questions. You might even walk away with some samples, too!

    I need to share with you a little about a line out of California. They have been around for 15 years and many celebrities are wearing it…it’s one of Christina Aguilera’s favorites! LipSense by SeneGence has over 50 shades of long-wearing lip colors that don’t dry out your lips, they stay put about 8-10 hours even while drinking, eating, kissing. They also have a sun protection equivalent to a waterproof 30! I love it and have been wearing over 11 years myself. It can be glossy, matte or shimmery…you choose the finish. You can mix colors, layer, great for dancers, performers and anyone who doesn’t want to see smears all over their wine glass or coffee cups! Blu-Red is the most popular of LipSense Reds and is only $22

    My RED lipsticks always end up looking PINK after a few hours of wear. Does anyone else have this problem or know how to correct it? I’m guessing just better quality/brand.
