Infusing the tiniest bit of glitter into your makeup look is the perfect way to get noticed this holiday-party season. Opt for a high shine, sparkly lipstick in a shade of nude to make a statement without going too overboard.
For the girls who love experimenting with their beauty look, a deep purple, almost blackberry-colored lipstick is modern and so on trend. Keep the rest of your makeup neutral (a cat eye at the most) to pull off this bold lip.
You can never go wrong with a classic red lip. For holiday parties, the brighter the shade the better.
Never underestimate the power of a nude lip. Choose one with pink undertones to avoid looking washed out.
Between the super-dark blackberry shade and the classic red, this deep magenta-purple lipstick has bright undertones to make your look pop without stepping too far out of your comfort zone.
