If there is one lipstick hue that's synonymous with the holiday season, it's red. But sometimes, red just isn't going to cut it. So when we spotted Kate Bosworth at the premiere of Homefront in Las Vegas, a lightbulb went off. Red isn't always the answer; sometimes a shade halfway between red and pink is exactly what you need. Why does this hue work so well? It blends with both cool and warm undertones, taking the guesswork out of finding that "ideal shade." Plus, everyone wears red, so you'll stand out from the crowd. Makeup artist Kate Lee used Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet ($34) in La Malicieuse (available Feb. 2014). To get the look now, shop below for your new favorite holiday lipstick.
