Crimson Lips and Tips

As holiday festitivies seem to have kicked themselves into high gear in the last week, I figured I would do a post about my favorite reds for the holiday season. On my nails, I have been pretty much exclusively wearing formula X for Sephora's nailpolish in the shade Curiousity. This formulation is BANANAS. It literally doesn't chip, and stays shiney for ages. Seriously, haul your tushy to your nearest sephora, and pick one of the polishes from this line up (treat yourself). You wont regret it. Next up, tried and true favorite, MAC Russian Red. Old Hollywood Glamour in a tube, is matte without being drying, totally opaque, and makes your teeth look so bright they shine like the top of the Chrysler Building. Lastly, Stila's stay-all-day lipstick in Beso (sample size, received via Birchbox). I have to admit, it's taken me a while to warm up to this lippie. Like most-long wearing lipstick, it can be a bit dry, but I've figured out the perfect layering scheme of lip balm prior to application, which makes for comfortable wear upon your kisser, worry free. It literally doesn't budge. In contrast to the MAC shade, this one has more orange tones, but it is seriously gorgeous and really warms up the complexion-- especially great for when the weather has got you feeling a little lackluster. Below is my "Holiday Party Makeup Tutorial" where I show you how to kick it up a notch for whatever shin-digs you have awaiting you in the coming weeks:
