Four Steps to a Perfect Fall Lip

One of the hottest makeup trends for fall 2013 is the burgundy lip (as seen on the runways of Miu Miu and Derek Lam). When done right, it’s outright elegant and can really make a statement. The look is very reminiscent of Chanel’s Vamp which was made popular in the nineties!

Here’s just a few essential tips to make your bold lip color stay perfectly in place, as well as some affiliate links should you want to shop for a lippy to help you create your own burgundy lip!

1) Using a foundation brush, apply a small amount of foundation onto your lips.
2) Follow with a dusting of your face powder (Don’t over do this or the lip color will appear chalky!)
3) Apply your burgundy lip color with a lip brush (This gives it a more finished look and gives you mores control, rather than applying directly from the tube).
4) Finish off your lip with Makeup Forever’s Lip Line Perfector on the edges to create a barrier against feathering.
