Picture this: a serene evening by the fire, cradling a glass of your favorite red wine—utterly calming and romantic. This cozy, sultry sentiment is finding its way into beauty trends, notably with the emergence of red wine lips as a striking addition to your autumnal makeup repertoire. Whether complementing a latte-inspired look or infusing a burst of color into the widely adored clean girl makeup, red wine lips are an enduring trend of the season. The beauty of it lies in its versatility, making it a cherished choice for makeup enthusiasts.
WHAT IS ‘RED WINE’ MAKEUP? Now first things first, we’re not inviting you to splash some red vino on your face and call it a day. No, this beauty trend, while being similar to the ‘Tomato Girl’ Makeup look, incorporates the iconic elements of the drink—from that burgundy stain it gives your lips to the overall, sophisticated aesthetic red wine drinkers have. Red wine-inspired makeup should give off elegance and sophistication whilst still appearing sexy. The key to achieving this look is striking the perfect balance between full glam and a natural, dewy finish.
This is a reminder to highlight your lips in your fall beauty routine. Oftentimes, we merely slap some balm on and call it a day, but implementing a routine lip scrub goes a long way. Once your lips are prepped and primed, it’s time to go in with a lip liner. Opt for a dark maroon color that will enhance your natural shape. Use a lip brush or a clean finger to gently blend this line inwards for a softer effect. Now you’re ready to apply lipstick. The most important thing is to pick a shade that quite literally mimics a glass of your favorite merlot. We suggest YSL’s Burnt Suede or Anastasia Beverly Hills Satin Velvet Lipstick Blackberry.
With a light hand, dab this lipstick onto your lips, focusing on the centermost part for a more dimensional plump. From here, you are almost done. Finish off the red wine lips trend by topping with a juicy lip gloss. While a clear formula works, ared-based gloss will add that last touch of color that will make your lips pop.
