I've been more experimental with lip colours this year and have sought out to discover the new favourite lipstick - a liquid lipstick. I 100% wouldn't wear any other type of lipstick for the holidays because, face it, holidays means a lot of food, drinking, and lipstick smearing if you aren't careful! A liquid lipstick will last, and with a colour like Stila's Baci, I can be confident in because it isn't a stand out colour. It is a mauve nude and perfect for days you don't want to worry about touching up a bright red lipstick!
Ps. Baci means kiss in Italian. Fun fact!
I know it's typical to have a red lipstick for the holidays (because red + green are Xmas colours, obvi!) but I most likely will be sticking with a mauve neutral like this one for holiday parties. A shade like Baci is very 'in' lately and totally acceptable to wear just about anywhere.
For the rest of my makeup, I went with a simple full coverage look. I used the Make Up For Ever new Ultra HD Foundation and mixed it with my trusty Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation. I've been doing this lately to get a natural but full coverage look. I've been obsessed with my Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Palette lately, so I did a simple matte look on the eyes with a hint of shimmer over top of the crease using my Urban Decay Naked. A strong winged liner with Stila's Liquid Liner and perfected brows using Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner and Browshow completes the look.
