Lazy Girl Holiday Beauty — Get The Perfect Pout In 1 Step

Here at R29 HQ, there are two secret weapons we keep at our desks in case of any last-minute parties or photo-ops: a pair of (really) high heels and a tube of NARS lipstick. Just like a great pair of shoes can dress up the most basic outfit, an amazing lip color instantly makes the most of an otherwise bare face...something you'll definitely appreciate if you share our lazy minimalist approach to makeup.
Our favorite winter hues run the gamut from traditional, garnet reds to gold glitter glosses worthy of ringing in the New Year. And trust us — that vivid, matte orange will look amaze with your jewel-tone party dress.
So, even if you're usually a natural-look kinda gal, give one of these audacious hues a try, apply per this indispensible tutorial, and tell everyone you're really into that whole minimalist-beauty thing...not that you loathe foundation and never really got the hang of a cat-eye.
