This Holiday Season's Must-Have Lip Shade Isn't What You Think

Nothing says holiday party like chic red lipstick, right? Well, yes...or so we thought until we saw this awesome editorial from our friends over at BeautyHigh. While a deep crimson or poppy-cherry hue might scream cold-weather chic, we totally fell for this crazy-bright, true-orange shade (in case you were wondering — and we knew you were — it's Lime Crime Lipstick in My Beautiful Rocket).
So, how does this out-there shade appear so wearable in this shoot? Well, two things. You know we're lovers of all hair shades, but we have to say that we love how the color contrasts with the model's cool, dark-chestnut hair, brows, and eyes. Another detail that nicely balances the vivid shade is the model's subtle yet defined eye makeup: The espresso eyeliner on the top lashline, along with the touch of white liner on the lower waterline, adds the perfect sultry-yet-sunny effect.
We might just be daring enough to debut this look at our next holiday party. The question is, would you rock this citrusy hue at your next soirée? (BeautyHigh)
