Hi my name is Eli and I blog about beauty and lifestyle over at Samples Queen. I try and test tons of new beauty products every month, so you don't have to. Check out my latest beauty reviews, lifestyle bits and travel adventures.
Because of the shade of color, burgundy lips are more of a bold statement, so the rule of makeup dictate to pair bold lips with more settle eye looks. Another alternative is going for simple eyeliner, which if you are one of those cat eye flick master (I’m definitely not!) got for it. For my version of autumnal look I went for metallic gold eye shadow, hint of bronzer and of course burgundy lips. One of my favorite long lasting and super pigmented eye shadow ranges LOreal Color Riche. Gold Mania shade adds that bit of extra sparkle that makes eyes stand out in a very settle kind of way. It works well with any eye color and pairs very well with any red or darker tone lipstick. For my burgundy lipstick of choice I went for Maybelline Creamy Matte in Divine Wine. This color is definitely more on the burgundy/plum side but I found looks universally beautiful on both pale and deeper tone complexions. The formula is not drying and once it lasts considerable amount of time. On the lips it at first felt very moisturizing and creamy but after about 5 minutes it the color sets. Throughout the day there were no smears but I did need to reapply which I find quite normal for bold color lipsticks.
There you have it beauties a quick and easy fall makeup update that does not cost a fortune. Personally I love burgundy shades and really believe that this color is universally flattering.
