Monochromatic makeup is a tricky trend to nail down, so our “Monochrome Moment” series is here to ease all of your one-color woes.
Burgundy is the ultimatesummer-to-fall transition color. It’s just dark enough to capture that moody fall ambience, but just light enough to fill your need for a nice autumn red. Here, we’ve rounded up our favorite burgundy makeup products that can be worn separately, but we challenge you to step out of your comfort zone, and wear them together.
Burgundy liner should be a staple in any beauty guru’s makeup bag, and this Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Alkaline is our top pick for the job. Super creamy and pigmented, we love wearing this on our bottom lash lines or smudged into our crease for prime burgundy dimension.
Our outer crease can not live without Stereoduring this summer-to-fall transition period. We recommend gently tapping this shadow into the outer V of your crease with a dome-shaped brush to warm up any eye color.
This cult classic burgundy nail shade is our go-to any time of year. If you’re going for a lighter red sheen, we suggest one coat. If you are aiming for the moodier, darker shade, we encourage two to three.
