As promised – a couple bold lip options for your upcoming holiday/NYE/wintery parties. I’ve mentioned I’m not a huge red lip girl – but – give me a deeper red/berry, or, a dark purple, and I’m on it.

To pair with a statement lip I usually go sups natural on the rest of the face. No crazy contour or blush shade, and I always go natural on the eyes – nothing smokey going on here. I’ll do one of two things: 1. a totally bare eye – keep things really simple and add some bronzer and a touch of a natural powder blush, or, 2. like here, a wash of neutral shimmer shadow with a thin black liquid liner, balanced with lengthening mascara [max factor for the win here guys].

The above two looks feature Bobbi Brown’s lipstick in Your Majesty, a perfect deeper red, and Nars Train Bleu, an incredible deep purple-berry that stays put through multiple drinks + food [trust me, I’ve put it to the test this past weekend].

Now, tell me, what are your favorite bold lip colors to wear throughout winter?
