I love to wear red lipstick all year round, but especially around the holidays it’s the perfect accessory. Like the look I wore in the above photos, a basic black dress is so much more festive and glam with a red lip. I’ve talked about tons of red lipstick shades on my blog over the years, but these 5 have been staples for me. Gucci Iconic Red is no doubt one of my all-time favorite shades, and one that I have worn numerous times on the blog (it’s what I am wearing in these photos). Burberry Military Red is a gorgeous full coverage formula that has more of a blue undertone than what I normally prefer, but it is still stunning when on (see it in swatches here). Tom Ford’s Dylan lipstick is the most classic out of all 5, and one that I think would look great on almost any skin tone.  NARS Heat Wave and Charlotte Tilbury’s Tell Laura are both lipsticks that have a very orange undertone which is what I prefer. These two are bold, vibrant and really brighten up my face when wearing them (see Heat Wave here).
If you want to really go bold this season with a red lip, I highly recommend trying one of these. They are all medium to full coverage with a creamy finish and have significant staying power so you don’t have to worry about it coming off after one cocktail. If you do end up trying one, please send me a pic of you wearing it. I would love to see how they look on all different skin tones! 

What is your favorite red lipstick shade? I am always looking for new recommendations!
