What looks more gorgeous than a burgundy makeup look? Burgundy is a classic shade that is flattering on every skin tone. It’s an elegant, dramatic color that instantly captures your attention. Whether you’re pairing a burgundy lip with a subtle monochrome makeup look or going for a bold burgundy smoky eye, there’s a look for everyone.
Bold Lips & Burgundy Smokey Eye
Start off by prepping the eyelid area with a light eyeshadow primer, then taking the burgundy shade of the Lorac Pro Palette and apply it all over the lid and blend it past the crease. Next, line the lid and lashline with a black gel eyeliner then blend it out towards the cheeks to soften the intensity. Extend the line up and out to create a cat eye look. Now curl the lashes, followed by adding a few coats of mascara. Once the eye makeup is complete, it’s time for the lips. Using a burgundy quad and a lip brush, line and fill the lips with the burgundy shade.
Vamp It Up: Monochromatic Burgundy Makeup
Take a long-wearing burgundy matte lipstick such as the ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip and line the lips lightly with concealer for definition. To complete the monochromatic look, reach for the burgundy shades of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. Begin by applying the shade Realgar into the crease, layer it with the shade Warm Taupe and create a soft smokey eye. To highlight the inner corner and brow bone, use Cypress Umber and finish off with two coats of the black shade Black Gardenia.
Burgundy Makeup Look Ideas
This bold look requires just a few shades of eyeshadow to create its statement. Use a medium burgundy shade applied to the lid and blend it out for a bit of a smoky look. In the middle of the lid, press on a shimmery burgundy shade. Don’t forget to line the eyes with a darker burgundy shade and add a few coats of mascara. For the lips, choose a bold plum lip color. Finish the look with a glossy highlight on the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupid’s bow.
