Red is a beautiful, classic look for the holidays, but I also really like a plums or berrys I’ve been really into matte forumulas, lately. There are many great holiday lip color options. Luckily, I still have some time to decide which one I want to pair with my outfits. For Christmas Eve, I’m considering red and another color for NYE. I’ll share my final looks on Instagram!
