Rock the season with 15 different holiday makeup ideas featuring statement red lipstick. You’ll be sure to attract a special someone under the mistletoe!

1. Mrs. Claus

Oh Santa baby! Slay this classic look with a bold cat eye and a swipe or two of mascara. Forgot to mention one little thing…a ring…of red lipstick is the last step to capture this simple and timeless look.


2. Glenn Coco

For the ultimate “fetch” look, try pairing a light smokey eye with some strong contour and a statement red lip color. You’ll be guaranteed to win all of the candy cane grams! You go Glenn Coco!

3. Chestnuts Roasting

It’s been done many times, many ways, but never quite like this! For all the ladies out there who want to stay ahead of the trend, the reverse ombre may be right for you. Pair with a nude/red lip for a look that is sure to roast their chestnuts.


4. Diva Glam

This Christmas, there is just one thing you need– glitter lips! Let your inner diva shine with this makeup look. All they’ll want for Christmas is you!


5. Steal Christmas

You’re a Queen one, Mrs. Grinch. You really are a steal! Stick to greens this season, and just like the Grinch, you’ll steal Christmas.

6. Silver Belles

Silver “bells” on silver “belles!” Dress in holiday style with this “silver bells” inspired makeup look. You’ll be sure to hear people sing about your flawless makeup!


7. Santa’s “Slay”

Just hear those slay spells mingling to sp-sp-spring your ‘do. A cut-eye crease as sharp as Santa’s sleigh is the perfect look for the holidays! This look will leave your friends calling “yoo hoo!”


8. Hallelujah

For an angelic and sleek look, try glossy lids! Simply dab some lip gloss over your eyeshadow or even over bare lids, and voila! It’s quite the bold and subtly-spoken “hallelujah.”



9. Frosted Ombré

For the ultimate frosted look, try an ombré lip! To achieve this, outline your lips with a darker lip liner, apply a lighter color to the center of your lips, and blend at the point in which the two colors meet. In order to get a more “snow-kissed” look, dab some highlighter on the center of your lips and in the inner corners of your eyes!

10. Charlie Brown

For those who want more of an understated look, go for a bare face and a bold lip. Keep it as minimal as Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree.



11. Golden Star

O Christmas glee, O Christmas glee! Be the “star” of your Christmas party with this gorgeous golden smokey eye! You’ll be sure to capture the attention of many onlookers this season!
