Actress Jennifer Lopez arrives at the Women in Film presentation of the 2006 Crystal and Lucy Awards at the Century Plaza Hotel on June 6, 2006 in Century City, California.
Jennifer Lopez is teaching fans how to “sleigh” the holiday season with a festive look.
The multi-hyphenate star recently shared her coveted secrets to achieving the “perfect” red lip.
In a new Instagram video, Lopez said that the red lip is among her beauty staples for the holidays.
The “Hustlers” star began her tutorial by advising viewers to use a neutral lip liner instead of a red one, explaining that it makes the lips look “fuller and plumper.”
Lopez used the Make Up For Ever Artist Color Pencil ($22) in the shade Anywhere Caffeine for her look in the video.
The neutral liner also has a fan in Hailey Bieber, who previously paired the same pencil with the famed Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lipstick for a look.

Lopez then told her followers to grab their “favorite red” lipstick and apply it on the middle part of the lips. The singer did not share the exact shade she used, but Page Six suggested it could be Nars’ Rita.
After applying the lipstick, Lopez used a brush to add detail to the corners of her lips and accentuate the shape by drawing slightly beyond its natural outline.
“I always draw a little bigger when I do a red lip because you can kind of get away with that,” she explained.
Lopez then applied some of her beauty brand’s Beso Balm Lip Mask on top of the red lipstick, lauding its dual prowess in ensuring lip hydration and a visually plump finish.
The final touch to her glam was a swipe of her very own That Star Filter Complexion Booster on her face, culminating in what Lopez likened to her signature “Jenny From the Block” look.
According to Lopez, red lips make her think of timeless legends such as Marilyn Monroe and modern icons like Gwen Stefani and Taylor Swift.
Swift, a fellow enthusiast of bold red lips, has favored a different Nars shade, the Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Pencil, along with vibrant hues like MAC’s Ruby Woo.
