There’s just nothing quite like a classic red lip for the holidays– it can totally transform even the simplest look into a statement– and it brings the holiday cheer like none other!
We have featured our gorgeous universal red (yep– that means it looks amazing on both warm, cool, and neutral skin tones) Scarlet Mineral Rich Lipstick in a classic red lip look before in this blog post here.
This time though we are bringing along a holly jolly twist: the Cranberry Cobbler 2-in-1 Cream Crayon!
Apart from its oh-so-sweet and festive name, this gorgeous red lip color (or cheek color!) reminds us of the holidays with its beautiful (and subtle) shimmer and glow.
Plus, its dual identity as a lip liner and lip color means that it stays on your lips exactly where you want it for even longer with amazing coverage (just like a lip liner) but leaves your lips feeling soft and won’t dry them out thanks to its creamy formula. Yes please!
I paired the Cranberry Cobbler 2-in-1 Cream Crayon red lip with a little Champagne Ice Mineral Eye Shadow all over my lid, along with a touch of Golden Glam Mineral Eye Shadow (from the amazing Pumpkin Spice Mineral Eye Shadow Stacker, but you can also find it solo here!) in a light dusting over top to add a little extra touch of glam and sparkle.
Champagne and Cranberries is such a perfect holiday duo, don’t you think? (Especially when they come in the form of shimmery, gorgeous, and good-for-you mineral makeup!)
For my cheek color I used a touch of Tender Mineral Cheek Color to keep my look soft and fresh and focus the attention on my bold red lip.
I kept everything else light with just a touch of Deep Earth Brow Powder, a few coats of mascara, and that’s it!
Also, a note on a really wonderful option for Wintertime foundation: I have really been loving my Antioxidant Liquid Foundation lately as the liquid application is really nice on my dryness prone skin– sometimes powder this time of year can exaggerate any dryness I have, but this one glides over my moisturizer and sunscreen so easily and looks so good!
If you haven’t tried it out yet this time of year is perfect to pick one up and give it a whirl– especially if you tend to have drier skin. It’s a total game changer– and you’ll love the ingredients list! (And fine your perfect color match here!)
