How to Wear Burgundy Lipstick on Your Wedding Day or Any Day!

Wearing a dramatic deep burgundy lip on your wedding day is not for everyone but with the right look and for the right bride, it can be stunning!  Here are some of our favorite burgundy lip looks and our tips on how to wear this red hot (or should we say burgundy hot) trend!

Deep Burgundy Lips Deep Burgundy Lips Deep Burgundy Lips Deep Burgundy Lips Deep Burgundy Lips Deep Burgundy Lips

Tip #1 More Contrast  = More Dramatic

What is so beautiful and striking about this look is the contrast.  Keep in mind that the more fair your skin is, the more dramatic this look will be on you.  Also, the more intense the shade of burgundy you choose, the more dramatic as well.  To really make a statement, try Darkest Burgundy Red by Kat Von D.

Style: "P 30 Product - Ultra sharp"

Tip #2 Keep It Monochromatic

A clean, fresh eye or an understated slightly smokey eye both look great with a burgundy lip, just make sure to keep the rest of your makeup clean and monochromatic.  Also, make sure that your face makeup is light and fresh, too much foundation and blush is going to make you look like you were playing in your mommy’s makeup.  Try just a sweep (not too much) of a complimentary blush color like this one from Makeup Forever in Deep Burgundy.

Tip #3 Lighten Up

Love this look but just not sure if you want to make such a bold statement (especially on your wedding day), try a less intense version by opting for a sheer burgundy lip gloss.  I love this Black Honey Lip Duo by Clinique that is actually a light “almost” lipstick on one side and a sheer lip gloss on the other.  Try wearing each one individually and then together to play with different looks.

Tip #4 Keep it Clean

There is no room for error with this type of look, you need to make sure that you keep things clean and in line and that your lipstick doesn’t bleed.  One way to do this is to outline AND color in your lips with a complimentary lip liner before applying a lipstick.  Also, remember that the more sheer the lipstick (or lip gloss) the more tendency it will have to bleed and come off.  If you really want to make this look easy AND have the staying power to last all day, try this all in one lipliner and highly pigmented lipstick by NARS in Deep Aubergine.
