    FAVORITE FALL MAKEUP TREND: WINE STAINED LIPS

    I'm borderline obsessed with one of this falls makeup trends, the red wine stained lip. There are a few ways to rock it, my favorite being with a nude eye/black liquid winged liner. Flip through any current high fashion magazines and you will find this look spilling over the pages. There is something about this type of makeup that seems romantic and haunting at the same time. A perfect combo in my opinion. 

    There are a few ways to achieve this lip, as well as some options to get the look without going too bold. Im going to call the bold lip a "Cabernet" and the softer lip a "Pinot Noir." They are similar but the Cabernet is just a little deeper in color with a touch of purple or burgundy, while the Pinot Noir is a bit lighter with a splash of cherry red coloring in the center. 

    THE LOOKS AND WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

    1. CABERNET- Bold would be a look similar to the photos shown above. A dark vampy lip close to Cabernet wine in color with a matte or semi-matte finish. I would choose MAC pro lipstick in "Sin", paired with "Currant" lip pencil. 

    2. PINOT NOIR- Cherry red in the center, deepened around the edges with a darker pencil. I like to use MAC lipstick in "Russian Red" with "Vino" lip pencil. This is the perfect pair for those of you who like an ombre effect. I would skip the gloss for this lip as well and go for more of a matte or semi-matte finish.
