3 Best Lipstick Shades for Every Holiday Party

‘Tis the season for endless holiday parties! From the office soiree, to dinner with the in-laws and holiday cocktails with the girls, we’ve rounded up the top 3 lipstick shades for every holiday occasion!

Classic Nude

When in doubt - go nude. A classic nude shade works for every situation. Unlike a super dark lip, which requires constant maintenance (cleaning up the lipstick bleeds, and constant reapplication- who has the time?!), you can simply apply your nude shade within seconds and rush out the door.

Pro-tip: pick a nude with pink undertones (like our Santa Monica shade!) to avoid looking washed out.

Mauve It Out

Bring a pop of color into your holiday look with a mauve lipstick that has plum undertones - like Melrose. This universally flattering shade not only provides a bit of plump to your pout but also looks great with a neutral or light makeup look. 


Embrace the Season with a Red Lip

Who doesn’t love a red lip during the holidays? Pucker up and apply a warm brick red lipstick, like Hollywood, to dress up your favorite Christmas sweater. Looking to be the most festive person at the party? Pair this shade with a fun frosty white shadow and ample coats of mascara - you can thank us later.
