Happy January! Once again, we find ourselves in that weird, somewhat depressing phase between Christmas and spring — it’s still cold outside, but the holiday hype is behind us. I don’t know about you, but it’s easy for me to let the oddness of this liminal space in time get to me. One way I keep myself from sinking into a dank hole of ice and slush? Seasonal makeup, of course!
There are so many great options for lip colors this winter! Whether you’re into very neutral natural tones for your lips, or bolder statement vibes, your options are honestly endless. Plus, a good winter lipstick is a great one-and-done way to make you feel like a boss babe without putting on a full face.
We also have to make sure we’re taking care of our lips in the winter. Chapped kissers? No, thank you. Keep scrolling to find our favorite winter lipstick shades and winter lip balms that’ll carry you through the season!
