By Amanda Polak. T’is the season to be bold, and play with color. Nothing beats a red lip in my view, it shows confidence, adventure and it makes you stand out. Red changes your complexion for the better, with such a bold color focused on your lip it softens out your complexion and pops the eyes automatically.

Here are some steps to feel comfortable in the perfect red lip. Try to wear the bold color and not have the bold color wear you! Starting with baby steps lets you build confidence along the way! Good luck and enjoy

A way to ease into this would be starting out with a red lip gloss, that’s sheer and easy to wear. Even out your skin tone with a comfortable tinted moisturizer and you can play up the eyes slightly with liner closest to the lash line and a charcoal shadow into the crease Wear this look for a few days to get used to the focus on your lips.

Next step is using a red lip liner, fill in the lip area and blot with a tissue. You can use a lip balm or go ahead and try the lip gloss on top! It’s low maintenance, and easy to wear. Wear this look with less eye focus, couple coats of black mascara and your favorite eyeliner with be suitable for the intensity of the lip.

Feeling comfortable with the bold look of red now? Fill in your lips with the red liner being very careful around the edges, blot with a tissue, and apply the red lipstick very carefully as well. I find it’s always better to trace (inside) rather than right on the edge. Time for the red lipstick. I like using a long lasting formula, so I can go on with my day and not worry about touching up every 30 minutes.

With a very bold holiday lip, of course you can play up your eyes for holiday parties or evenings out. During the day keeping it simple everywhere else keeps you looking fresh, and bright.
