Burgundy is undoubtedly the color of the season. It’s made its way into everything from skinny jeans to lipstick, and we’re loving everything about this haute hue. We’ve spotted the deepest blood-red lips all over the blogosphere and magazines lately, so we decided to ask our resident beauty expert, Alaina, how we can incorporate it into our makeup repertoire without looking like zombie clowns…
Piling on this super-saturated lip color may be a little bit intimidating, so Alaina gave us three ways to wear it, from subtle to super-glam. Even better – it’s a great way to take your look from day to night, and who doesn’t love versatility?
Just trying to get your feet wet? Start off with a sheer red gloss and neutral eyes with a light coat of mascara.
Ready for the next step? Move on to a deeper mauve lipstick. Keep it matte or add a dab of clear gloss in the center for a bit of shine. Add a cat eye with black liquid liner and amp up your mascara.
Want to go for the glam? Pick out a deep chocolate-cherry red lipstick. This look might require some lip liner to get it looking just right. Keep your cat eye, but add some smoky shadow and an extra coat of mascara to rev it up.
After our chat, we think we’re ready to try this bold trend! Are you? Shop deep red and other fall tones on FrockCandy.com, and let us know in the comments below if you would try out these dramatic red lip looks!
