If red is the only color in your holiday lipstick repertoire, it's officially time to expand your collection. Of course, there's absolutely nothing wrong with a classic lip — it's festive, elegant, and always in style — but with so many parties and events this time of year, it's also the perfect time to branch out from your usual. And, as always, celebrities and their makeup artists are the perfect place to turn for flawless holiday lipstick color inspiration.
While yes, you will find a bright red lip color below (this matte look on Candice Swanepoel by makeup artist Patrick Ta is just too good not to include), there's also a bevy of others to try, depending on your desired vibe. Going for a dark, moody look? Try a purple lip à la Kerry Washington and balance it out with a *very* sparkly ensemble. Feeling low-key? Copy Beyoncé's lip from The Lion King premiere in London and opt for a warm nude shade. Or, channel warm summer weather with a coral lip like Jameela Jamil at the Glamour 2019 Women Of The Year Awards — it's an unexpected color that'll brighten up any look.
There's something for every mood and style ahead, so keep scrolling to find your new go-to holiday shade.
