Trend to Try: Wine-stained Lips

Burgundy, maroon and rich plum hues are all the rage this fall. Change up your classic red lip for a darker tone to stay on trend. Balance this bold look by opting for neutral eye makeup.

Don’t want to pay for a lipstick color that you think you might not use that often? No problem! This year at NYFW, makeup artist Victoria Stiles got creative and used “reveal” from the Sigma Dare Eye Shadow Palette as a lip stain and applied it with the Sigma L05 lip brush.

What are your thoughts on the rich lip look - love it or leave it?

  1. Love it!! but I am not comfortable wearing it since I have a darker skin tone.

  2. Dark lip shades can actually look very good on dark skin tones! Give it a try and you might be surprised :-)

  3. love the make-up palette!! it's in my wishlist for the holidays!!!:)

  4. Brenda - we sure hope you get this as a stocking stuffer this holiday season! ;-)
