We love a bold lip and now we're moving into Autumn, there is only one choice; the burgundy lip. It was all over the catwalks for Autumn-Winter 16 and this is a trend we can really get behind; whether you go subtle and juicy for the day or deep and bold for a special night.

How to Wear a Burgundy Lip

Backstage Beauty Tips

A deep, dark lip can seem intimidating but it doesn't need to be. There are a few things you can think about to make it easy to incorporate into your look.

  • The Tone. For a more modern, bold look, head for more rich, brown tones. For a softer look, juicier berries are the best choice.
  • The Opacity. If you prefer a 'just-bitten' look, try out sheer formulas, stains and glosses, but for full impact, go for full coverage, highly pigmented formulas like liquid lipsticks.
  • The Finish. A glossy lip can look fresh and is amazing paired with really dewy skin. For a sleek and modern look, go for mattes.

Whichever look you go for, this is the colour of the season.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
