New Year's Eve Lipsticks

While I’m a huge proponent of a classic red lip, it leaves a little something to be desired on a night that is notorious for letting your inhibitions go the way of the wind – New Year’s Eve. If we’re willing to go outside our style comfort zones and pile on leather, sequins, and fringe (just not simultaneously) to ring in the New Year, doesn’t it make sense to be a little more daring with our lip color, too?

Get in touch with your dark side. A deep crimson, could-be-mistaken-for-black lip instantly adds a sumptuous element to your look.

Peachy keen. An orange hue is unexpected without crossing into cringe-worthy territory. Stick to shades that remain in the coral family to rock this shade perfectly.

Seeing violet. A purple lip is not for the faint of heart – but it is for the fashion-forward. If you’re aiming to stand out this New Year’s, try swiping on this unique hue.
