How to Wear Dark Red Lipstick

Fall Beauty Trend 2013: Burgundy Lips

We love a bold lip here at WrkITGirl.com and that makes us über excited that the bold, matte Burgundy lip is in this fall. In our cover photo we have featured a Lancôme Absolu Crème De Mat and Armani Beauty Rouge D’Armani Downtown Collection that are deep wine/burgundy colors both under $35.

It could possibly be a bit much for some people who are not used to that pop of color in the middle of their face. We have 2 different ways to wear this look:

Bold: Be sure to use a lip liner before you apply your dark red lip. A great one is Dark Raspberry by Make Up Forever because it is long wearing and waterproof. In addition to lining your lips, go ahead and fill in to the center of your lips. This will prevent the color from bleeding and also help keep your lipstick on longer. Finally, go ahead and apply that bold color in a couple coats and you’re ready to go!

Toned Down: Try using a lip stain that’s a dark berry color instead of a very pigmented lipstick. You can also try putting on the lipstick, then blotting some of the color off by pressing your lips firmly together on a tissue.
