Burgundy ruled the Fall 2012 runways on clothing, lips and nails at Gucci, Jason Wu and Nanette Lepore. It’s since become a favourite of red carpet regulars like Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson, who both sported a deep lip at the New York premiere of Hitchcock.
Add the trend to your own beauty repertoire with a lush lip stain or lipstick paired with soft taupe shadow and black lashes, or lacquer your tips with one of the many sultry beet shades available this winter.
The brownish-red hue also brings out blue eyes when smudged along lashes, and a berry flush conjures memories of a day skating in crisp, icy air. Tuck your maroon beauty finds into a bloodshot clutch or makeup case to take part in another fall trend: the matchy-match look.
