Easy Christmas lips 2 ways: Your how-to guide to the best party pout


Want to know how to use this season’s hottest lip trends in your Christmas party make-up? We’ve got everything you need

A bold lip is the perfect partner for a LBD, and if you’ve got a Christmas party coming up, it’s a great time to experiment with new shades.

We’ve got two bright lip looks you can try, to get you in the mood for a glass of bubbly and a good dance.

LOOK ONE: Red perfection

“A really quick way to update your look from day to night is by adding an eye-catching red lip,” says make-up artist, Cassie Steward. “Draw a neat line with a fine-tipped lip liner, then fill in with your choice of red. A deeper burgundy will give you a bit of old school glamour.”

LOOK TWO: Glossy fuchsia


“A bright pink lip isn’t for everyone, but if you want to try something a bit more out there, it can pay off,” says Cassie. “I wouldn’t recommend a fuchsia if you have red tones in your skin, but on olive and darker tones it looks amazing.”

We used:

  • Art Deco Soft Lip Liner in shade 86
  • MAC Cosmetics Lipmix in Fuchsia
  • MAC Cosmetics Lipglass
