How To Get Rose Gold Lips For The Holidays, According To Huda
IMHO, Huda Kattan can do no wrong. She's talented, funny, and has some of the most innovative tutorials on the entire Internet. Case in point: Her latest rose gold lipstick look. It's not only the perfect holiday lip, it also happens to be incredibly easy to do... Which means you can basically put it on in the car after taking 45 minutes longer than expected to pick out a party outfit.
It seems like this year more than ever, Christmas is the new Halloween. People are going legitimately crazy with their beauty looks (erm, Christmas tree hair, anyone?) and these days throwing on an ugly red sweater and a coat of red lipstick apparently is a little, well, boring. Luckily, you don't have to go full "Elf on a Shelf" eye makeup in order to achieve a festive beauty look... All it takes is some glittery gold eyeshadow and a red lipstick and pencil and you'll be totally covered.
A rose gold lip is a great compromise for anyone who isn't totally comfortable going full-red or full-gold. It's a bit more subdued than either color would be on its own, and provides a good balance between glitzy and vampy holiday makeup.
Watch Huda demonstrate how to get the look here:
Here's everything you'll need to try it at home:
1. Red Lip Pencil
Huda Beauty Lip Contour In Heartbreaker, $19, ShopHudaBeauty.com
Even if you've never worn lip pencil before, once you try one of Huda's lip contours it will become part of your every day routine.
2. Red Lipstick
Huda Beauty Liquid Matte in Heartbreaker, $20, ShopHudaBeauty.com
You can really use any red lipstick as long as it matches your pencil, but I always find it so much easier to just find a brand you like and buy the pencil and lipstick together. I personally love Huda's products, but you can use whatever you have at home and it will work just fine!
3. Red And Gold Eyeshadow Palette
Stila Eyes Are The Window Palette, $49, Sephora.com
It's legitimately heartbreaking that the Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette is sold out, but this Stila option is an amazing alternative that I promise is just as good. Use the shimmery pink shade as your base, then highlight in the middle with the bronze/gold. Plus, it will look equally as amazing on your eyes, and who doesn't love a two-for-one product?
