Beauty: Christmas Party Series – Bold, Berry Lips
It’s Christmas party season. That means sequined dresses, bare blue legs trembling in the taxi queue and bright make up. This is the time of year where you can be adventurous with your product choice and wear fun, festive colours that you probably wouldn’t feel all too comfortable wearing at any other time, and it’s to be grasped with both hands.
Here I’ve focused on a bold lip look, although there are endless Christmas/festive make up looks to suit the season. As far as the bold lip goes, it’s wise to choose a plum or berry-toned lip colour as opposed to a classic Monroe-red. Not only does this have a more autumnal, Christmassy feel to it, it’s also less in-your-face. We’re going for bright, noticeable and festive, yet classy and demure.
