This has been translated to the beauty world, as the “wine stained lip,” and it’ll leave you looking like you’ve just finished sipping on a glass of your favorite vintage.
Follow these tips to make this striking look easy for you to wear.
For fair skin, choose something with a blue base for a softer color. If you’re afraid of the high contrast between skin and lip color, find a gloss which will serve to lighten the shade considerably.
If you have medium skin then you may want to try a rich opaque burgundy. Orange based colors such as brick or rust are complimentary shades to keep in mind as well.
For darker skin tones a deep, deep shade of burgundy will compliment your complexion perfectly. Since darker skin tones can get away with highly saturated colors, choose a shade that looks almost too dark to wear and layer on a high-shine gloss to complete the look. When stepping out with this seasons hottest color on your kisser, one thing’s for sure; like an over ripe grape your lips are sure to pop.
