Whether you're off to another party or you just want to look and feel extra festive, you can never go wrong by swiping on a gorgeous red lip! And this holiday season, it's extra perfect to show off a red pout with all your looks. But since we know you'd want to change up your makeup and head-to-toe look for all the different celebrations, we're here to help you pick the best looks for you! Simply scroll down to see the different red lippie looks your favorite celebs are sporting and choose the ones you want to recreate. 

 1  A bold and pure red lippie is a classic look that goes best with natural eyes, so go ahead and swipe on some mascara on those lashes and nothing else.

 2  If you want to look extra fierce and dressed up, finish off your updo and neutral smoky eye with a deep red or wine red lipstick. 


 3  A little scared of sporting a red pout? Choose a pinkish red shade and keep the rest of your makeup simple–focus on a flawless base, bold brows, and curled lashes.

 4  For a more vampy, glam look like Kathryn's, opt for a plum red lippie paired with a classic cat-eye! Choose a matte lippie if you want a long-lasting finish.

 5  Don't be afraid of focusing on both your eyes and lips. You can still put on a bronzy smokey eye when wearing a bright red lip, it's all about how you choose to rock it! 

 6  If you're feeling extra festive, why not sport an orange-red lip just like Taylor? This hue will make your skin glow! 


 7  If you're feeling a little adventorous, go ahead and try the ombre lip trend with two different deep red lip hues! Using a lip brush will help make you achieve this look easier.

 8  Feeling lazy? You can actually just swipe on your favorite red lip and nothing else! Gigi shows us here how powerful and chic a red lip is on its own.
