Whether you’re fellow fashionista or not, there’s no doubt how popular burgundy is for Fall/Winter months. A true burgundy is described as a rich, royal, dark red without any major shade of purple like maroon would have. With each cold season, fashion trends makes waves for deeper hues since darkened shades flatter our slightly paler complexions.
The classic deep hue is straight off the runway and what better way to incorporate the sultry shade then with your wardrobe and makeup routine. Burgundy is a new winter season staple. It’s a quick way to add richness and depth to any outfit coupled with your favorite neutral hues. The deep shade easily pairs flawlessly with beige, grey, black and navy blue. You don’t have to be decked head to toe for the adventurous- incorporating a slight touch can work beautifully.

Always pair it with a lip liner for flawless application.
