Whenever I think of winter makeup, my mind always goes straight to the classic red lip and a black cat eye. It’s perfect for holiday parties, date nights, and any other festive occasion you have going on around this time of year.
If you are looking to shake things up a bit, try some shades of raspberry in your makeup. A bold raspberry lip is a great alternative to the classic red and can be just as beautiful. In fact, I would argue that it’s an even prettier option if you are wearing a navy blue dress.
If you want to wear a berry colored lip, make sure your blush falls into the same tonal category. Or you could skip the blush altogether and just wear a hint of bronzer.
Conversely, if you are wearing a nude lip color, kick up your cheeks with a pretty raspberry hue. It would look stunning with a dark, chocolate brown smoky eye.
