Dark Burgundy Lipstick: 5 Minute Makeover

Learn how to apply burgundy lipstick and what to wear with it in this 5-minute makeup tutorial. This 5-minute tutorial will teach you how to use the lipstick, what to pair it with, and much more!

Mineral powder can be used to remove redness.

Your dark red lips should not pull out the reds in your skin. Use a mattifying powder to remove redness and apply your foundation.

Apply a lipliner that matches your lips if they are thin.

You’ll need to make sure that your lips are well defined because you’re wearing a bright color. Lip pencils in the same shade can make thin lips appear larger and will give you more time to wear your overall look.

For the truest color, apply the lipstick directly from the tube.

If you want the best color results, apply your chosen lip color directly to the lips. If you find that your lip color is uneven, blot it and use it again for a more vibrant finish.

Use a blush of a similar color to add a subtle glow.

Use a blush with dark red or wine shades to help bring the whole look together. It is especially helpful for women who have pale skin because the dark lips create a strong contrast.
