I have a confession to make: if it didn’t make me look like a total vampire, I’d wear deep burgundy lipstick every day of the week. In fact right this minute I’m wearing OPI’s super foxy Honk if you love OPI on my digits, a deep sultry burgundy if there ever was one. I save the burgundy lips for serious rock and roll or a truly dark restaurant, but it’s time to bend the rules because
this fall it’s all about the burgundy.
Burgundy lips, burgundy nails, burgundy eyes (I’m just not that brave, I’ll be honest), and deep purple cheeks (that one should stay on the runways).
Here’s how to wear it:
- Put the lipstick on straight out of the tube. Blot, reapply, and use a lipstick brush or q-tip to clean up the edges.
- In order to NOT be mistaken for a member of the undead, keep the rest of your makeup minimal. By which I mean almost nonexistent. It’s a little streetwalker to have crazy eye makeup and super dark lips all on the same face.
- Once you’re out and about during your day, check the mirror every so often to make sure your lipstick still looks foxy. It’s harder to keep a dark burgundy look pretty than it is a light pink.
- Rock it.
What do you think, are you all in?
