With fall approaching just as quickly as winter is ending, all the make-up junkies are emptying out their old make-up boxes and making space for the new make-up trends. Every changing season calls for a change in your look and your looks define your personality so be sure to try out this hot new trend of the fall – Wine Stained Lips.
The rising trend has first been spotted on the Fall 2013 runways at Fendi, Miu Miu and other famous fashion labels and their fashion shows. Some call them the vamped up look, others refer to it as the gothic appeal but we’ve decided to stick to the wine stained pout. These deep Bordeaux lip colors have begun to flaunt themselves at a variety of famous make-up branded stores already. Women usually find it hard to carry such dark colors on the lips but, if done the right way, they are really simple to pull off.
All the celebrities have been doing it. Check out Miranda Kerr‘s latest photo shoots at the Met Gala’s and Joan Smalls at the VMAs. Both, absolutely gorgeous ladies had everyone taken aback and simply mind blown by their cabernet and plum shades on the lips. Not only this but, Hollywood has been spotted with every celebrity wearing almost every version of this wine stained lip trend from matte to glossy to stains.
The best part about these wine stained lips is that they look absolutely fabulous with just about everything. They are bold and express your fashion statement in a manner that may have never been explored and expressed before. Red-wine stained lips with deep berry and purple or haughty, bold red hues are all in this season.
All these dark and wine-stained lips have seemed like they have been pulled out right from the Twilight series. Lips ranging from cherry to aubergine have heavily been spotted on the runways recently and they look extremely easily wearable. Some of the make-up experts from Dior, Givenchy and Lancome have stated that wine looks good on a number of skin tones which makes it rather easy to carry and pull off!
For all you fair skin ladies, try to pick out the deep, rich and haughty hues of red and berries. To ace the X-factor, oomph it up with lip gloss and highlight that pout! Try Revlon Color burst Lip butter in Red Velvet or Calvin Klein ONE lip gloss in Mad. Medium skinned complexions should go for the burgundy shades preferably those that contain more of the maroonish- red tones in them. Go for Dior Rogue Dior Replenishing Lip Color in Plum. Dark complexions should hit off the stores in an attempt to look for all dark purplish hues they can find. Try out the Mac Smoked Purple or Illamasqua in Underworld.
If you’re not such a great fan of lipsticks then go for the balms. Try out Korres Natural Products Lip Butter in Plum or Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF15 in Berry to add a thin layer of lip shine along with the wine stain. This will aid in enhancing your shape as well as make you worry free about your undertones.
Go for Cover girl Lip Perfection Lip color in Eternal or Lancome Rouge in Love Lipstick in Rose Sulfureuse if you are going for a little less of the goth wine stained lips and more of a pink undertone wine stain on your lips. It is highly preferable to wear these wine stained lips on a bare face. Go really light on the eyes if you simply cannot live without your mascara and eye liner but be sure not to over-do it.
Besides ladies, it is safe to move about and away for a while from the light pinks and hot pinks and bright reds. It is always good to try out change and give yourself a new look sometimes. Wine-stained lips are the most in vogue hitting the markets this season so why not give it a shot?
