I have holiday parties on my brain: candle light, glitter, sparkling beverages out of beautiful stemware, 4″ heels in falling snow, and tinsel of all colors draped about. I absolutely love those shining, ethereal evening gatherings!
Dior Addict High Shine Lip Stick – Sheer Vibrant Rose
For an evening of dancing in a hotel ballroom full of streamers and bubbles, Lulu donned her festive cherry-red wig and dress layered with petticoats. To keep her lips quieter than her ensemble, she smoothed on her favorite, pale color. The gloss and shimmer of this close-to-nude lip stick makes her smile shine.
DuWop Tinted Prime Venom – Tango
Marla’s evening began in a limousine and will be danced away. She embraces the simplicity of a little black dress with a pair of pumps – tonight her shoes match her lips in a beautiful burgundy. Her diamonds and pearls are not from her normal accessory selection, but they are perfectly at home for tonight’s festivities.
Meg is on her way to an informal party with a dozen or so of her close friends. There will be trays of hors d’oeuvres and cheeses with what will undoubtedly be a huge selection of wine for pairing. Her outfit is casual and warm, and her coral lipstick is the perfect accent.
Kat Von D Painted Love Lip Stick – Cathedral
(click the link for some of the most amazing lip colors I’ve ever seen!! In addition to Cathedral, I especially love Backstage Bambi and A-Go-Go.)
Amy is set for an evening with the family. Each year there is an odd line between the formal/informal – ness of the party. Champagne toasts are made with the crystal, but dinner is often served on paper plates to help with a quick clean-up. Rowdy kids are under foot, but soon tire. And the evening is rounded off with It’s a Wonderful Life playing in the background while the adults drink nightcaps and reminisce about holiday’s past. For this, Amy wears beautiful heeled boots over her jeans, with a comfortable, fitted sweater. Her warm brown lipstick compliments her hair and gives her just the right amount of “done up” for the night.
MAC Red Lipstick – MAC Red
Rita has a huge holiday evening ahead of her: dinner with the girls from the office, cocktails with the in-laws, and a huge soiree with friends. Her look needs to be versatile tonight. She’s in a royal blue satin dress with matching pumps, sheer black leggings, and layers upon layers of bangles. She’s used a bright, classic red lip stick to finish off her look (MAC Red is the one that I carry in my purse).
