Nothing says Christmas quite like a statement red lip. Matte or glossy, deep or bright, a bolt of red lipstick can update your look instantly. And who better to turn to, than the brand everyone wants to find under their Christmas tree.

MAC’s Snow Ball Lip Bag in ‘Red’ is the ultimate Christmas makeup collection to create that classic pout. It contains 3 signature products to create a stunning lip look and is housed in a foiled rose gold clutch bag.

Line Your Lips

Using a lip liner is essential for creating a beautiful lip look which is neat, long-lasting and doesn’t bleed. The MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in ‘Kiss Me Quick’ glides effortlessly onto the lips to define and enhance your natural lip line and cupid’s bow. With intense colour pay off and a transfer-proof finish, this yellow-red toned lip liner adheres to the lips instantly.

Apply Matte Lipstick

Once your lips are lined, swipe on the MAC Lipstick in ‘Hooray for Holiday’. This non-drying matte finish lipstick is highly pigmented for bold, bright lips with a single sweep. Boasting cool tones, this lipstick plumps up the appearance of the lips, whilst also making it the perfect shade for winter.

Finish with Lipglass

To create the glossy finish, the MAC Lipglass in ‘Joy to Enjoy’ coats the lips with a lacquer-like gloss and buildable coverage. Non-sticky and packed with 77 bio-available minerals to condition and nourish, it leaves lips kissable, soft and smooth. Gently apply a small amount with the flexible doe-foot applicator to get even coverage across your lips for a comfortable finish.

How to achieve the Ruby Red Look

Give your lips the kiss of approval with this stunning Ruby Red look, inspired by MAC's Snowball Christmas collection.
