Vamp Up Your Pout for Fall In Deep Rich Tones

With all the bright pops of color that have taken over our makeup-bag, it’s refreshing to see moody shades of burgundy, plum and burnt cherry making a strong statement this fall for lips. The dramatic sexy hue popped up all over the Fall 2012 catwalks (Donna Karan, Rochas (both above), Gucci & Bottega Veneta) and trendsetters like Kate Bosworth, Azealia Banks and Camilla Bell took this optimum fall beauty trend for an early spring spin at the Met Ball 2012. Finding the right shade for your skin tone is crucial to pulling this look off, as with any makeup trend. Intense burgundies work well with dark and medium skin tones, and lighter berry shades are more compatible for those with fair skin. For maximum impact, especially for day, make sure to keep the focus on your pout by keeping everything else low-key and reaching for a matte lipstick. A touch of mascara and a hint of light shadow is really all you need. For evening, go full-on sexy with a smoky eye. To ensure your vampy look is a success, first and foremost dehydrate your lips. To help keep your color stay in place all day, reach for a lip liner in a similar shade as your lipstick.
