Lips that range from deep cherry to aubergine rocked the runways recently for New York Fashion Wee. The absolute best news is that this trend is extremely wearable for most women. “Wine looks good on a variety of skin tones, making it one of the easiest colours to pull off,” says Creative Makeup Director for Fashion Fair Sam Fine.
Our favourite way to unleash our inner vixen is with vampy dark lips, of course. “Deep, plummy reds are definitely on trend this year and will keep coming,” says Los Angeles makeup artist Brittany Spyksma. We’re seeing plenty of purples, browns and blacks, as well. You should have a play with different colours ad see which really work for you!
A lot of women shy away from dark lips, staying firmly in the pink and nude zone. We get it, it’s safe there. “But don’t be afraid to try something new,” Spyksma encourages. “If you don’t think you can wear a dark lip, you just haven’t found the right colour.”
Here at Beauty Passions, our favourite red wine lip colour is ‘Bistro’ by Youngblood. Pair it with the ‘Pinot’ lip liner and va-vroom, instant vixen appeal!
It’s a hue we’ve all gazed at lovingly through a long stemmed glass at the end of a hard day at work, and now, it’s become one of the hottest trends in fashion!
