When December rolls around, there’s one beauty item that is a necessity – the perfect red lip.  I have been swearing by Urban Decay lipsticks for years, but their most recent matte collection is hands down, the answer to my lipstick prayers.  All three of their lipstick collections – Revolution, Sheer and Matte – are available at Nordstrom in so many different shades, a girl can never have enough.

I’m wearing Bad Blood here, but other matte lip favorites are After Dark and Tilt.  When rocking a red lip, I usually pair it with a neutral eye using my Naked Basics2 palette and amp up my lashes with Subversion lash primer and Big Fatty mascara.  The other go-to beauty look would be a soft smoky eye using the Smokey Palette and what my makeup artist friend calls “the brown girl nude lip,” Revolution Lipstick in Liar.

Nordstrom carries so many beauty items now, you can shop for anyone from the shoe lover to beauty lover and in between.  With free shipping and free returns – there’s no risk and it’s one stop shopping just in time for the holidays!

One of the four eyeshadow palettes above is a great Christmas gift for any girl who likes makeup! They last years and are all available at Nordstrom.  Naked1 is for the girl who loves bronze shades, Naked2 is taupe-based, Naked3 is rose-hued and Naked Smoky can create any smoky eye you’re going for.

What’s your go-to holiday beauty look? I just ordered a gigantic makeup organizer (featured in yesterday’s gift guide), so I’m ready to roll over here! Thanks so much for reading – XO –
