I’ve never really been one to follow fashion trends by season but a friend of mine has been influencing me to update myself on the latest trends! Since I am a beauty blogger and not a fashion blogger, I decided to update myself with the latest makeup trends for fall. There were lots of new exciting Fall 2012 runway makeup trends and I chose my favorite one: The Burgundy Colored Lip. Out of all the trends, I find this the most wearable. That and because I am in love with lipsticks!!!
Apparently for fall, bloody red lips aren’t dramatic enough! This is a more dramatic take on the classic red lip and it kind of borders on a gothic vibe.
Scroll down to see my take on the trend and to learn about tips on how to achieve this trend using affordable makeup! :)
My take on the trend:
I looked for a drugstore lipstick and the best one I found is Mauve-ulous from the Maybelline Colorsensational line. :)
- Make sure to exfoliate your lips because this shade would not look good on chapped lips. You can use petroleum jelly or your choice of lip balm for this. :)
- For a matte effect, you may dab some translucent powder on your lips after the lipstick has been applied.
- To be able to wear this on day time, make sure that the makeup on your entire face is minimal. You want people to focus on your pretty lips! ;)
- To be able to wear this out at night, just pair it with a neutral colored smokey eye. For a night out of partying, feel free to go for a dramatic smokey eye! Just don’t use bright colors to avoid looking like a coloring book. teehee!
