When a golden tan isn't at your fingertips, your beauty routine has to rely less on the natural glow, and more on a statement punch. A bold lip for winter is a classic beauty hack used by celebrity makeup artists and taste makers worldwide. Who knew that two swipes of a colored stick could be considered so "genius"?
I've laid out my five favorite lip colors for winter, from the most trusted lipstick brands in the game. Simple, affordable, and stylish, these colors are guaranteed to elevate your winter style!
Above is the Urban Decay Sheer Shame. This stick is a mixed berry hue with a bit of shine-- it's juicy and sultry.
Reds are a delicate subject-- there are the orangey reds (like above), and the blue-ish reds (like below). It's beneficial to have both in your makeup drawer!
Above is Laura Geller's Big Apple Red. It's shiny and bright and ultra moisturizing.
Now here's a blue-ish red by NARS called Dragon Girl. This stick is a fan favorite and an Elshane's World ultra-fav. If you don't own it-- I'm confused. What are you waiting for? It's matte, dry, and long lasting. It looks good on absolutely, positively everyone!
Milani makes the most luxurious, affordable makeup in the game. This purple berry hue, called 65, is rich enough to be the stand-alone statement to your day or evening's outfit. It's one of those colors that you should expect to get stopped on the street for-- the compliments keep coming!
And then there's that perfect nude that is a makeup drawer must. For the times when you go heavy on the eyes, but need a lip to finish the look. Flower's Naked Petal will give you just that-- all for a shocking $7!
