‘Tis the season to be merry — and your lip color should be, too!

We know. Stepping outside the neutral gloss comfort zone can be intimidating. But luckily we have Kristen Floyd (aka The Lip Whisperer) to help find the perfect holiday shade. She teamed up with Uno the Salon to help three local moms find a new favorite shade. Just in time for holiday soirees!

“The trend is definitely deeper shades or red and burgundy!” said Kristen, so don’t be afraid to go bold. “This season, we’re seeing a move away from matte or glossy finishes. Creme formulas are what’s haute.”

When trying to find a great new color, match the tone of your skin to the undertones of the color. If you have a cool skin tone, try pink or purple. Warm skin tone? Orange or reddish brown will be your jam. Fair skin tones should try rose or undertones in the lip color. Those with deep skin tone will shine in brown or red colors.
