Holiday Style 101: Match Your Lipstick Shade to Your Shoes

Gone are the days when trend-conscious women matched their lipstick to their nail polish or, even worse, their eye shadow. Even though the rules have changed, it doesn’t mean you should abandon the concept of color coordination completely. This holiday season, why not pair your favorite shoes back to the perfect pout? The complementary shades will show how much thought you put into your look and be a conversation starter on everyone’s lips. Plus, nothing draws attention to fabulous shoes like twinning lip gloss! Below, we linked 3 of our favorite winter styles to stunning lip shades that should flatter every skin tone, and vice versa.

The Brittany flat segues perfectly from day to night thanks to its lustrous metallic finish, but add a similar gold lip gloss, and you will sparkle like holiday tinsel (in a good way).

A matte bordeaux lip pencil adds high-fashion drama to a holiday look and matches the burgundy Naples boot to a tee. Pair it with clean, glowing skin, a swipe of mascara and a glass of red wine, natch.

No color says “Happy Holidays!” like true red, and the red venom Michelle heel serves it up elegantly. Call attention to these seasonally on-point pumps with a dash of velvet-smooth vermilion lipstick, applied with a brush and set with translucent powder.
