7 Green Lipsticks To Wear During The Holidays Because Red Is So Obvious — PHOTOS

I have nothing against red lipstick, but sometimes, you just need to shake things up. If you're wanting to stun at holiday parties this season, reach for these green lipsticks for the holidays and prepare for some major compliments. There are more brands out there than you'd expect creating awesome shades of green for every skin tone, so you're bound to find one that works for you!

Oh, and don't just limit dramatic makeup looks to holiday parties. If your beauty routine has been feeling a little lackluster, a dose of color could be all you need to suddenly feel refreshed and reinvigorated.

I was always pretty wishy-washy about actually ever going for a dark green lip hue, but my friend Ariane who is a straight-up master of all things colorful convinced me to splurge on this one green lipstick from Manic Panic. I'll admit it wasn't love at first sight (mostly because I was too dang afraid to even swipe it on my lips), but once I got my confidence up, I learned to totally dig the color. It's the perfect unexpected pop of boldness when paired with simple shimmer eye shadow and a little black dress and I always reach for it if I'm going to be out clubbing in the trendy parts of Brooklyn.

Unsure of how to even go about applying a green lip? Watch this awesome tutorial from vlogger Cyndee Black.
