Fall’s hottest lip color: Burgundy

A darkly bold color was spotted all over the runways for Fall 2012. Burgundy has become one of the key colors to introduce into your repertoire this season; and it’s not just for your clothes. 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.

Try Sephora, Bloomies and Neimans for these lip colors. Enjoy…xx
