Simple Holiday Makeup Classic Red Lips

A few years ago I created this simple holiday makeup classic red lips look and I wanted to re-share it because it was so easy to create. Yes, I have dark hair here, but you can rock the red lips with any hair color. What’s so great about wearing red lips is that it immediately dresses up any holiday look and you can keep your eyemakeup simple and easy to create. I don’t know about you, but with all of the Christmas parties coming up and the fact that I am a mom of three, my time is limited and so creating a makeup look that is a simple go-to is essential.
