Nothing brings a makeup look together like the right lip product. With so many shades to choose from, there are so many ways to change the vibe you’re going for depending on the occasion!
Looking for some ideas for your holiday celebrations? Let Kelsey Merritt give you a few! In an Instagram reel, the model showed us how she does three effortless makeup looks using different lip products. Keep scrolling to get inspired!
Look 1: Natural nude
Kelsey’s first look is one that can be worn as an everyday makeup look or a casual get-together. Here, she's wearing a light base that shows off gorgeous freckles, light pink blush applied on the outer part of her face for a natural flush, and tiny winged liner. She finished her look with a pinkish-nude MLBB by Pat Mcgrath called Venus in Furs. The great thing about using a shade like this is that it works for a variety of skin tones. We can totally see ourselves doing our makeup this way for work or a weekend brunch!

Look 2: Date night red
Evening looks call for a bit more oomph, and this slicked-back bun and red lip moment from Kelsey gives exactly that. Her choice of lippie here is a bright shade of crimson that looks gorgeous on her complexion. Like Kelsey, wearing red lipstick can make you stand out in the best way possible, as its bright color naturally draws eyes towards your pout. Complement the color by pairing the lip color with a rosy pink blush on the apples of your cheeks and generous coats of mascara.

Look 3: Glossy night out makeup
As the saying goes, lipstick lasts longer but gloss is more fun! But seriously, who doesn’t love a shimmery, reflective gloss for luscious lips? It's the perfect pick for a night out look, and Kelsey's third makeup look in the reel is proof. The model paired the Pat Mcgrath Lust Lip Gloss in Earth Angel with a soft brown smoky eye and sultry loose waves!
