When this season’s parties seem to be all about glitz, glamour, and high-shine, let’s not forget the focus of any perfect holiday fete. Good conversation and ever-flowing cocktails are always two signs of a successful seasonal soiree, which means look-at-me lips are essential to stand out among the evening’s glittery jewelry and sequined party ensembles! While I’m usually the first to reach for a satiny nude or more subdued neutral-hued lipcolor, this winter is all about darker, luscious berry lips, ranging from deep raspberry to currant red, perfect for stealing the show and making a statement while you mingle with friends (and make new ones!) over fabulous cocktails! Makeup artist Lisa Eldridge swears by Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Lipstick in Belle de Rose, while Lipstick Queen’s Sinner Lipstick in Berry is a customer favorite. If matte is a bit too bold for you, try a shimmery berry formula like Vincent Longo’s Wet Pearl Lipstick in Berry Jet, or Neutrogena MoistureShine Lipstick in Berry Burst for a more sheer, glossier finish!
