The holidays are hectic – from Christmas parties, to family reunions and finishing your end of your projects strong – and with so much going on sometimes you have to make things simple to keep you sane.
One thing that always stresses me out this time of year is how am I going to do my makeup?! You all know I love a good no makeup, makeup look, but when there’s a special occasion I like to play around with new looks and even color to spice things up.
Pinterest and Instagram are usually my go-to for makeup inspiration and my feed was bombarded with a simple, classic yet bold red lip. I instantly knew that’s the look I wanted to recreate.
Most of the pictures I saw had more of a matte finish for the face and eye makeup, but that doesn’t look good on my skin (it’s way too drying!) so I decided to create a flushed dewey look.
I kept the look super simple with just black eyeliner, bold mascara and a darker red lip with brown undertones. This is definitely a look I can pull off year round if I really wanted to, but it really was perfect for the holidays!
