Two of the most popular makeup brands are promoting red as the color of the holiday season, Bobbi Brown and Rihanna's last collection for MAC Cosmetics, RiRi Hearts Mac Holiday.

RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday is white-hot makeup characterized by bold color and metallic majesty to create sultry eyes, red lips, and red nails, in limited edition white-pearl packaging with Rihanna’s iconic rose gold detail, perfect for the holiday season.

Bobbi Brown is on “Red Alert” with four ways to take advantage of holiday makeup.

  • Lip Color: A classic lipstick in a rich red color with a soft matte finish, available in Hollywood Red, Burnt Red and Red.
  • Creamy Matte Lip Color: Enjoy the modern matte lip with creamy wear-ability that lasts eight-hours, available in Red Carpet and Scarlet.
  • Lip Gloss: Bobbi Brown’s Lip Gloss is ideal for less dramatic holiday makeup that gives more of a popsicle-stained look, available in Siren Red.
  • Lip Liner: Red lip liner is a must to keep red lipstick from running and feathering, especially on aging lips. Makeup tip: Outline around the lips lightly with concealer and a lip brush to further prevent running lip color.

Until December 8 Bobbi Brown has a sweet online holiday makeup offer. Receive free shipping and a free Mini Eye and Lip Palette on orders over $65, redeem with coupon code FALLPRETTY.
