Ok, so there’s a million articles on red lipsticks and which ones go with your skin tone, eye color, hair color, dog, socks, etc. But ’tis the season for festive makeup, and for me, that’s a red lip! There’s something so classic about throwing on red lipstick day or night. You’ll look instantly put together even if you’re running to the drug store in your pajamas. I’m sharing a few of my fave “true reds” that aren’t dry, but leave a smooth, matte finish. Just remember to start by sloughing off any dead skin and applying lip balm for a crack-free pout.
