Holiday Look: Glossy Red Lips

It's only 28 days before Christmas! Who's excited?! Christmas is my favorite holiday because it brings family together, and everyone seems really happy and nicer. Many of us will be attending lots of parties and celebrations during this season, so I came up with a holiday inspired makeup. I will be creating a few more holiday makeup videos, and I am starting with Glossy Red Lips.

Red is the color of Christmas, and many of us do wear red lips on parties during the holidays, so I created a look that's easy to do but make you appear polished, classy, and sexy. Anyone can do this makeup for there aren't really so much technique used to create this look. I applied light and matte colors on the eyes, and added falsies to give it a dramatic effect. The key to this makeup is the face, which we need to keep flawless. Red lips can accentuate the redness on the face, so concealing and using a full-coverage foundation is advisable. However, if you have very good skin and do not have too many imperfections or redness to cover, light coverage foundation or bb cream is perfect! I kept the face matte and didn't use anything with shimmer or highlighter as glossy red lips already gives the face a lot of attention.

If you like to wear a matte lipstick, that will work too! Then you can highlight the tops of your cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, brow bone, and cupid's bow to add some more radiance and dimension to the face. A straight sleek hair or sexy waves will be perfect for this look!
