Holiday Makeup Tutorial: Berry Metallic Lipstick Holiday Makeup Tutorial: Berry Metallic Lipstick Holiday Makeup Tutorial: Berry Metallic Lipstick

We get it: Red lipstick is a classic—especially around the holidays—for good reason. After all, red is shade that looks good on just about everyone, and it’s super-festive to boot. But sometimes, it’s fun to switch up your makeup—a little or a lot. After all, you’ve already got plenty of holiday party selfies where you’re rocking red lipstick—so why not try something completely different this year? Yep, take this as permission to be adventurous with your makeup this holiday season. Go bold by sporting a metallic lipstick in a pretty berry shade. 

Why You Should Try Metallic Lipstick

Metallic lipstick is awesome for a variety of reasons. For starters, it makes a glitzy glam statement. Metallic lipstick’s shimmering velvet finish means that color looks extra-saturated and intense while catching and bouncing light in every direction. While matte makeup continues to be on trend, the holidays—especially New Year’s Eve—are the perfect time to wear something sparkly on your lips.

Our Best Metallic Lipstick

Want to get in on this eye-catching holiday makeup trend? It’s time to pick out a metallic lipstick. Our L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallic/Lips will do the trick. Available in four shades, it comes with a wand applicator for precise application. To perfect your soon-to-be favorite metallic berry holiday makeup lip look, read our tutorial below.

How to Complete Your Metallic Lipstick Makeup Look

You want your metallic lipstick to be the star of your holiday makeup look, but that doesn’t mean you to need to keep the rest of your face completely bare. Here’s how to do your remaining makeup for a look that sparkles this holiday season.

1. Create an even canvas. Obviously, you want your skin to look flawless so all the attention can be on your killer metallic lip. To do this, start out with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayons to help conceal any discolorations, like dark spots or dark circles under the eyes. Next, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation which offers long-lasting coverage with a radiant finish and lightweight feel.

2. Apply black eyeliner. Define your eyes by drawing a thin line of eyeliner across your upper lash line (starting at the inner corner of your eye and working your way outwards). We recommend using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil, available in six shades.

3. Define your brows. No, we do not mean sharp edges and arches. This season it’s all about soft brows. Use the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set, which has a gel mousse formula, and the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Raiser, a two-sided chubby pencil with concealing and highlighting sides.

And now you’re officially all set. Have a berry merry holiday season! And, just in case you’re in search for a pretty holiday hairstyle to match your holiday makeup, check out our article, In-Betweeners: 4 Medium-Length Hairstyles for the Holiday Season.
