Nothing says holiday like satiny red lips. At GQ's 2011 Man of the Year event, Jessica Biel paired a scarlet mouth with some seriously sparkly eye makeup and a sequined black cocktail dress. To choose the red that’s right for you, find one that’s flattering to your skintone. If you’re fair, like Biel, try a tomato tonethat is, one with hints of yellow. If you have olive undertones or medium skin, go for a true crimson with lots of blue. Deeper burgundy and brick look best on darker skin tones. And try to prep lips with a few blots of foundation before smoothing on your lipstick. It mutes your natural lip color and allows the true pigments to take centerstage.
