Shades of Grape: Eight Great Wine-Color Lipsticks
Itâ€™s been aâ€Š banner year forÂ wine-hued lips. Designers like VeraWang and Zac Posen sent models strutting down fall runways in rich,warm hues of burgundy, bordeaux, and merlotâ€”a more-subdued spin on the usual bright-red puckers. â€śItâ€™s versatile and generally works for all skin tones,â€ť makeup artist Katrina Hess says of the trend. Start with exfoliated lips and lean in with the blotting papers to achieve a matte, stained look; an ultra-glossy wine kisser can veer into garish territory, Hess says. Beauty bonus: The blue undertones in many of these tints make teeth appear whiter for a brightâ€”altogether intoxicatingâ€”smile.
