No matter how you prefer to do your makeup, subtle and smooth or bold and bright, we all agree that no look is ever complete without the perfect lip shade. But when it comes to dressing up for the party season, you need to step out of your comfort zone and experiment with your lip colour. Hide those nude lippies for a while, maybe?

You can opt for the traditional red or embrace shades that you’ve never tried before. Here are the hottest lip colours you can try this party season that will make you look no less than a celebrity.



Plum - lip shade

The bold and beautiful plum is the perfect party season shade. No matter what your skin tone, the perfect plum lipstick will brighten your overall look and bring the focus to your lips. Team it with an LBD and minimal makeup to look bomb in those New Year selfies!

Fuchsia- lip shade

Fuchsia is a bold shade and it screams attention, so we wouldn’t recommend it to someone who has never ventured out of the nude lipstick category. But if you think you can handle all the attention coming your way there’s no better shade to try than this!

Matte red

Matte red - lip shade

Red lipstick is the go-to shade for most women when it comes to party season. If you want to switch things up, try a different texture. Matte is currently the most stunning of the lot. It does not feather, requires no touch-ups and is long-lasting.

Berry is the new red. This trendy, bold and beautiful shade flatters most skin tones and yet not the most preferred lip colour. Get glamorous this party season by picking this perfectly ripe lip stain.
