'tis the season: red lip & glowing skin

I don't know about you, but every year after Thanksgiving, my makeup look completely changes up! I've been known to rock a red lip, but what better time of year to do it than around the holidays? To me, winter is the perfect time of year to rock your reddest reds on your lips-especially since the cold weather will ensure that your perfect pout wont melt or smudge!

products used: Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Eclat, Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Radiant Highlighter, Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Lip Color #19 Gabrielle (similar), Chanel Rouge Allure #71 Fatale, Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Shimmer Bronzer

To get this holiday look, apply a light layer of sheer to medium illuminating foundation all over the face. Then, dot highlighter under the eyes, on the cheekbones under the eyebrows and the cupid's bow. Fill in your eyebrows with pencil for some added definition (although with Jilly's envious brows, none were needed).

Contour just under your cheekbones with a bit of bronzer-but remember to blend! No mascara was used on Jilly, but if you ladies are one of those who refuse to leave the house without mascara on, go for one coat of your favorite lengthening mascara (I like this one or this one). Lastly, apply your favorite red red a lip brush to ensure that the line of your red lips are perfect! I mixed two Chanel colors for Jilly to make what I believe is her perfect red!

What is your go-to beauty look? Do you feel like you switch things up during the winter?
