This entry was posted on October 31, 2012.
Happy Halloween! We hope you have a fun filled day and enjoy putting together your Halloween day look and then switching up a few things up for a night time outfit too! If you desire to keep your Halloween look simple and low key there's a way to keep your look both down to earth and beautiful too. Make your lips look bold and be a hit of the party, even if it is just on your sofa watching a favorite Halloween flick instead of heading outside. ;)
Dark, berry hued lips were a huge trend on the 2012 fall runways of designer powerhouses like Rochas, Gucci, Bottega Venetta, and Viktor & Rolf. To keep this dark romance from erring on Gothic (unless you want to since it is Halloween), makeup artists balanced out the look by keeping the rest of the model’s makeup minimal: fresh skin with hardly any blush and subtle, neutral eyes. Other popular lip colors included classic red and nude, but berry stood out as something new and trendy. Keep reading to learn how to wear this striking lip color during the day or at night and which shades to buy below!
Get the Look: Splurge, Spend, or Save
Here are three great products to help you get the perfect burgundy lips in three different price points. If you’re looking to splurge, it’s no surprise that the name Chanel should come up, and at $34, you get what you pay for! Make Up Forever has an ultra-creamy aubergine with a shiny finish for the more affordable price of $19. If you’re looking to just “try on” the trend, Sephora’s store brand, the Sephora Collection, has a highly rated ‘Color Lip Last’ that’s only $12 and lasts 10 hours that’s definitely worth giving a try. Once you pick out your product, it’s time to learn how to wear it during the day versus at night.
How to Wear Burgundy Lips: Day vs. Night
For a look that’s ‘berry’ appropriate for the office, they key is to tone down all of your other makeup so you look fresh-faced- almost bare. You may also want to choose a lighter shade of berry that doesn't have super heavy blue undertones. For nighttime, add black eyeliner and “pinched” rosy cheeks for a look that’s completely sophisticated. On Halloween, this makeup look will especially look nice if you're dressing up as Snow White, for example!
Burgundy lips look especially elegant with an updo or chignon! It's time to make Halloween classy and have a wonderful evening. Don't be afraid to show off your beautiful burgundy lips for a elegant fall time appearance today and in the future as well.
