Burgundy color lipstick can easily exude sophistication and elegance with a focus on the lips. You can either go for an ombre look or keep it simple and one-toned. No matter what style you try, burgundy color lipstick creates well-defined edges that enhance the overall shape of the lips. The rest of the makeup can be kept relatively minimal, with softly defined eyebrows and subtly bronzed cheeks, allowing burgundy color lipstick to take centre stage.
But achieving a precise and long-lasting burgundy lip look involves a few steps. Begin by exfoliating your lips to create a smooth canvas. Apply a lip primer to enhance the colour's longevity. Use a dark lip liner to define the edges and fill in the entire lip. Then, apply your burgundy color lipstick thoroughly!
The Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Lip Color in the shade ‘Burgundy Passion’ is our go-to choice for a burgundy color lipstick that is bold and long-lasting. This burgundy color lipstick offers the dual benefits of a built-in primer and a matte finish, ensuring a comfortable and even application that stays put for hours. The rich burgundy shade exudes confidence and sophistication, making it perfect for both professional settings and special occasions. With its intense pigmentation and velvety texture, ‘Burgundy Passion’ adds a touch of glamour to your look while providing a matte finish that doesn't compromise on comfort.
Flawless Complexion: Blush and Contour in Burgundy Hues
Embrace the magic of burgundy blush to add warmth and depth to your complexion. The Lakmé 9 to 5 Pure Rouge Blusher in the shade ‘Peach Affair’ gives you a natural flush while staying on the burgundy theme. This blusher offers a delicate and buildable reddish hue that adds a natural flush of colour to your cheeks. And its finely-milled texture blends seamlessly onto the skin, providing a soft and smooth application.
For subtle contouring and sculpting, just use a matte burgundy shade slightly darker than your skin tone. Apply it below your cheekbones and along your jawline, blending well to create shadows and dimension. To achieve a radiant complexion with burgundy accents, blend the blush and contour seamlessly for a harmonious finish that complements your overall makeup.
