As the malls get decked in poinsettias, it won’t be long before everyone else starts wearing bright red hues in the spirit of the season. It’s easy to pull off a crimson pout or ruby digits when talking about beauty. So if you’re one of the few who dare to go bold, read on and see how you can up your beauty game in a sea of reds.
No, we don’t mean looking like you’re hung-over or sleepless. A sleek red line on top of your usual cat eye is a great way to spice things up during the holidays. If you’re feeling a bit more daring, go for brick colored shadow on your lids. You might even want to try using your blush!
TRY THIS IF: You’re willing to go daring.
Red lips can sometimes be predictable. Go the extra mile by blending two different shades of red on your lips. Start by swiping the lighter shade on your lips and add the darker one on the edges. Use a lip pencil to help blend them in seamlessly.
TRY THIS IF: You want to try something new.
If you still feel quite iffy about trying a new makeup look, this might be the better option for you. A quirky manicure never really hurt anyone plus it’s the best way to experiment with color since you won’t be putting it on your face anyway.
TRY THIS IF: You want to play it safe.
Make it a red letter day and try one of these out!
