New Year's Eve is a time of year when everybody gets a free pass for wearing sparkles. Not that you need one, of course, but if you're normally a bit more reserved or natural in your daily makeup choices, it's the perfect night to play with going bold.
Now, at the tail end of 2017, it seems that the natural space has finally mastered safe formulations of bright, bold, statement-making lip color. Burt's Bees, Kosas, Kjaer Weis, and RMS all released new, deeply pigmented shades this year and Bite Beauty, a longtime nontoxic brand, developed a clean holiday collection exclusively for Sephora. While these are all excellent New Year's Eve picks, they'll serve you all winter long. Pro tip: If your lips are cracked, peeling, chapped, or dry, you'll want to prep your pout. Try exfoliating your lips at night by gently brushing them with your toothbrush, and apply a healing occlusive like coconut oil or, if your lips are quite chapped and in need of intense healing, Aquaphor. You'll wake up with smooth lips that are perfectly primed.
