The Best Fall Lipstick Color: Burgandy

Let’s talk  fall’s hottest lipstick color, burgundy, shall we? You can call it oxblood or wine-stained (when blotted down)…whatever you want to call it, burgundy lipstick is hot for fall. If you are much of a red-wine connoisseur, you will be happy to know that the bold-burgundy and wine-tinted lips, are very much on trend for fall as seen on the Fall 2014 Rebekkah Minkoff and Anna Sui runway shows. And, of course, on the lips of celebs like Lorde (burgundy is always on trend for Lorde though…soo). Also, by wearing a bold-burgundy or wine-stained lip color, you can blend together your post-wine-lip with your lip color. Brilliant.

And, if you are terrified about actually wearing this burgundy lip trend, have no fear- with all of the chubby lipstick pencils and squeezable tubes, there is a burgundy lip color for every lipstick-comfort-zone, and skill level.

The Bold– If you feel like you want to be bold with your burgundy lipstick color, do it with precision. First, line your lips with a burgundy lip pencil like the REVLON ColorStay lip-liner in Wine/Vin and smudge it into your lips. Next, top your lips with a burgundy lip color, blot it down, and then apply again. For the most precise lip line, apply your lip color with a lipstick brush. My current favorite burgundy lipsticks are Wolvesmouth by Kat Von D and Mulberry by Bite Beauty.

The Every Day—So maybe you are not into having the boldest lips on the block, but you still want to be on the burgundy lipstick-bandwagon- I got you covered. Try using an actual burgundy lip stain like the NYC Smooch Proof lip stain in Berry Long Time or the MILANi Power Lip, gloss-stain-hybrid, in Cabaret Blend. It’s classy, pretty, and won’t accidentally smudge in places you don’t want it to. l

Check out the tarte lipsurgence in moody. Or if you are more of a gloss-girl, try the Burts Bee’s Natural Lip Shine in Pucker. This is the best way to get your burgundy lipstick fix in an easy-to-use way.
