Does it get any more festive than a bright red lip? I think not, in fact i’ve been rocking a red lip most of November and December! I actually love wearing one all year round but they just feel extra special at Christmas. Today I’m sharing my top 5 red lipsticks, which was actually so hard to narrow down. Four of these are matte shades, I find a matte red is just so much more wearable, yet can help create such a bold look which is perfect for parties and special occasions. Matte shades are also a bit more long lasting, and with something as bold as a red lip, you want these to last well and with limited smudging. These 5 shades are the ones that I always reach for when I want to create a bright look that compliments a more neutral eye and that can be worn either day or night! What is your favourite go-to red lip shade?
