Winter Makeup Look

Hey, lovelies! I can’t believe Christmas is just right around the corner. This year, like every other year, is a huge blessing for my family and me. As you guys probably already know, I am ready for anything and everything festive! The red lip is a must-have for the holiday season. However, I believe that’s a little bit of a different story for me.

Honestly, I’m wearing a red lip or a variation of it almost every day out of the year. I find it timeless, stunning, and quite frankly, my go-to favorite. And for every woman or man out there who takes pride in their never-ending collection of red lips like me, I promise there is a different shade for every occasion. The coloring for those sophisticated mornings, to the hard-rocking late night, and of course for the running late bedhead, “I didn’t have coffee this morning, but a red lip will suffice” look. There are countless looks red can achieve, but by far, my most beloved is the Christmas look.












Here I am wearing shade number 11 in Peppermint Pop Matte by Clinique. These lipstick are my top pick for this season’s lip color. It has a smooth and creamy texture that moisturizes the lips despite the matte appearance. It does come off rubbed by something. Usually, I touch up around 2-3 Times max for 12-14 hours of wear. It is comfortable, flexible, and easy on the lips. When drinking, I’d recommend using a straw or anything like it but not something directly on the Lips. I ALWAYS get numerous complement when I wear this shade out and have people asking me where it is from. I hope you lovelies feel the same way!​

Here are one more gorgeous lipsticks that I have been drooling for; my next purchase definitely would be this red seductive Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick in Carina's Love. Also, check out Joice's Christmas gift guide. There are a few red colors lipstick that I love, or if you want a slightly darker shade, Matte Revolution Lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury in Love Liberty would be the ultimate purchase there is.


To achieve this winter look, I use a lighter shade of eyeshadows. While the blogosphere was buzzing over famous Urban Decay Naked Heat, our editors fall in love with this fabulous Smash Box Cover Shot Golden Hour eyeshadow palettes. It has six gorgeous hues with two base shade inspired by Smash box's LA photo studio trend. Excellent qualities shadows, great colors, super easy to blend.

OK, loves, I hope this look will be an inspiration for you, thank you so much for reading, and until next post!
