PRETTY PUCKERS (L-R): Youtube beauty gurus Michelle Dy, Ana Victorino, and  Say Artillero It’s no secret that we love lippies (and according to statistics, so do most Filipinas!).

Sweet and creamy nude is an absolute classic—and in case you didn’t know, it’s the lip color du jour. We love the effortless sophistication of this demure shade, seen here on Ana Victorino. Plus, its low-key effect means you can opt for ultra-luxe eye makeup.

We can think of two reasons why vino-inspired lips always pop up close to Christmas. First, girls love a touch of drama (see how fancy Say Artillero looks in this shade?). Second, a deep pout is ready to party—meaning, your lips won’t get that awkward wine line even if you’re sipping all night long!

Instead of going for the typical neutral, try a rich, chocolatey hue like Michelle Dy. Yes, brown is back from the ‘90s! Whether you opt for a matte or glossy finish, this dessert shade creates the perfect balance between timeless and trendy.
