Holiday Makeup: 5 Bright Lip Looks

Bright lips can be the only accessory you need to elevate a look from everyday to all-out glamour. When dressing up for your next holiday event, try a vivid shade of red or pink lipstick inspired by one of these 5 sultry celebs.
1. Amanda Seyfried's true red lips complement her fair skin.

2. Leighton Meester keeps the rest of her makeup soft to balance out her ruby pout.

3. Lauren Conrad's deep berry lips and liquid liner create a look that's sweet and sophisticated.

4. Natalie Portman
's crimson stained lips are all drama.

5. Megan Fox pulls off a slightly orange tinged red that's eye-catching and of-the-moment.
I love this! And I totally agree... red lips are perfect for this season especially when everyone is grouchy because of the cold weather!

I like these looks, glamorous, sophisticated, and youthful all at once. I like it more than the super made up smoky eye which invokes a drug den or something to me.

Great looks! So perfect for the holiday season! I just did a post featuring Lauren's look for less.

Love the variety of reds here! Some of the best long lasting liquid lipsticks are Maybelline's Superstay ($8) and MAC's Longwear ($18). Two of my other fave budget products are Mattify Cosmetic's Sparkling Eye Shadows ($5) and Cover Girl's Invisible Concealer ($6). I still can't help but spend 30 bucks on my Estee Lauder Foundation, but these other products are such a great value they allow me to spend more on the foundation. It's very tough for me to find a quality drugstore brand that will stay on my oily skin!
