Don't reserve it for your nails - this colour is a winter winner
- “Oxblood looks especially amazing on paler complexions with just brushed-up brows and mascara,” says Lancôme national make-up director Lara Srokowski.
- “Satin and cream lipsticks have lots of moisturizing properties and are super-comfortable, so they’re perfect to wear during the day, while matte lipsticks make a bold statement and last all day,” explains Srokowski.
- Cool-toned burgundy lips look best on fair complexions, while warmer burgundy shades suit medium to darker skin tones.
- A sheer balm is best for aging or thinner lips
- A glossy, glassy oxblood pout can make lips look fuller
- Liner is essential for a crisp pout that goes the distance
- If you’re hesitant, start by blending burgundy with neutral tones for a hint of colour, suggests Lancôme national make-up director Lara Srokowski.
- A subtle ring of burgundy liner will make your eyes pop. After something more dramatic? Smudge a little black liner along the lash line, too.
- For day, Srokowski recommends wearing burgundy eyeshadow in the socket and neutrals (warm browns, vanilla or sheer gold) on the lid; for night, start with a creamy oxblood shadow on the lid and layer either dark brown or black over the top.
- Build a better smoky eye by layering powder shadow over cream formulas.
- Coat lashes in black mascara then use a small brush to apply an oxblood shade on just the tips, or use black up top and burgundy on the ends of the bottom lashes.
- If you want to try winged eyeliner, use a liquid or gel formula for intense colour payoff.
