Officially holiday season 🎄🎄🎄 what’s your go-to (zoom) holiday party look? I love this red lippie by @lauramercier in “rouge électrique”. https://rstyle.me/cz-n/et7yqqckw47

Wouldn’t dare wear red? Check out my top 5 tips for pulling off a red lip below! Perfect time to give it a try… who’s going to see you? 😷🤣

1. Try a red with a blue undertone to make your teeth look whiter. I think a lot of the scare factor with red is what it can do to your pearly or not so pearly whites! I’m wearing more of a true red in this picture.

2. Wear concealer! A bright awake under eye makes it a lot easier to pull off a red. You want to look put together, bright under eye, filled in brows, mascara & maybe a wing! If you don’t own @tartecosmetics shape tape (heavier in a creamy way) https://rstyle.me/cz-n/et7z8gckw47 or @narsissist radiant creamy concealer (much lighter weight) start there! https://rstyle.me/cz-n/et72hyckw47

3. Less is more. You might have to do a more simple makeup look then you are use to. A heavy eye and a heavy lip is too heavy on the eyes 😎 try only top liner and nude or no bottom liner. I’m wearing @anastasiabeverlyhills highlighting duo pencil https://rstyle.me/cz-n/et72pnckw47

4. Do not skip liner! With your lips being red, and now the focal point of your face, you need to make sure to line and fix any symmetry. Also, make your top lip bigger focusing on your Cupid’s bow. I always prefer a pointier then rounded Cupid’s bow. Don’t over line the entire top lip bc Halloween was a month ago 😝🤡

5. Fill your lip in with the red liner so as your lipstick fades, you will still be red underneath! For darker skin tones, use a darker liner and try an ombré lip with leaving the filled in liner sides darker! I’m wearing @rimmellondonus liner ❤️
