Red lips for the holiday season

red+lips+for+the+holiday+season_3356_800203943_0_0_7066918_300Katy Perry may not be the only one rocking red lips over the next few months. The holiday season has brought crimson lip color back, according to LifestyleInquirer.net. But before attempting the look, apply a few other cosmetics to create a fantastic canvas for your attention-grabbing pout.

Prepare your face with moisturizer and lip balm. Use a concealer to hide under eye darkness and a mineral foundation to cover any blemishes.

Since the emphasis will be placed on your lips, keep eye makeup simple with a nude-colored shadow and a few coats of black mascara to subtly enhance your peepers. If you desire a bit more definition, line eyes softly with a brown pencil.

Before you apply your lip color, use a bright, crimson-colored pencil to line your lips. This will help color last longer and prevent bleeding.

Finally, slick on your favorite red gloss or lipstick to create a delicious pout. A blue-toned red is a great choice, as the undertones can make teeth look whiter.
