This Winter, we’re obsessed with this bold lip trend, so much so that we’ve found three different ways to wear it! It looks gorgeous on all skin tones, even the palest of the pale, which is why we asked our fair friend Lexie to model it for us. Here’s everything you need to know about rocking a deep berry wine lip:

OPTION 1: A PLUMPING GLOSSThis one is beautiful in the daytime, or for those of you with chapped lips, thinner lips or lip lines, because it forgives all sins instead of making them look worse!

OPTION 2: A LIQUID LACQUERThis option (in Seduction) is pretty on everyone! It has the intensity of a lipstick but the shiny-ness of a gloss. It feels ultra-luxurious to wear.

OPTION 3: A MATTE STAINThis one (in Wicked) is for the extremists who love making a statement and turning heads! If you have excessive lip lines or thinner lips, it might not be the right choice, otherwise you’ll love it.

Pair it with a light eye shadow (like  a gold metallic) to complement but not compete!

And the only way to do it is with a longwear lip lacquer. Why? Because there is nothing worse than having a deep red statement lip smearing and traveling past your lips. (Vampires are still in fashion but let’s not take the blood-drinking look too literally please!) So here’s how to get it done right, with a splurge and a save option for each: (more…)

You can translate this huge Fall trend in a small way, or really go for it! You can play with different formulas too… burgundy lipstick, lip gloss, stains, matte balms or liners paired with gold powder eye shadow, cream shadow or gold metallic lipstick. Makeup is supposed to be fun and a creative outlet, so choose by your mood that day or what you have in your makeup drawer! Here’s how we did it: (more…)
