Happy Sunday, Wanderers!
I’m going to keep this very short and sweet because if you’re like me, you are running short on time and are probably running around looking for a New Year’s Eve outfit.
Sidebar: My friends are the queens of last-minute plans and just when I think I have packed enough for any and every possible event, they manage to throw me a curveball and I still end up in someone’s store trying to piece an outfit together. IT. NEVER. FAILS.
Wow, I got distracted lol. Okay, back to the topic at hand….It wouldn’t be a post if I didn’t include a small rant right?
The one accessory you need to bring together your NYE outfit is….a red lip.
I know, I know, red lips are bold, daring, and often scary but recently they have been my go-to and always seal the deal. (The deal being my outfit of course). Red lips bring a certain level of confidence and fun that I love. I must admit it took me a while to master the red lip, no matter which shade or brand I would try they just did not look good on me. Well that was until I found the secret…
The secret to getting the perfect red lip is a good lip liner. I typically gravitate towards a brown lip liner, specifically Chestnut. Find you a good lip liner, whether it’s something close to your skin complexion to help tone done the intensity of the red lip or a red lip liner to intensify the red hue, and you’ll create the perfect red lip.
Here are my three favorite red lips this season:
What is your go-to red lipstick? Do you love a good red lip or do you gravitate towards something a little different? Maybe it’s a deep dark hue or maybe something bright and vibrant. Comment down below and let me know! If you try any of these lipsticks for New Year’s, be sure to post a picture on social media and tag Twenty (@twentywandering).
I have always had difficulty finding a red lipstick that works for me. I typically wear shades of pink or something dark. Thanks for the suggestions. If I decide to try any and find one I love, I will be sure to let you know.
