For fall 2016, makeup artists are pulling out all of the stops when it comes to daring makeup looks. From glitter lids to blue makeup, and the timelessly popular shades of red and plum, the autumn runways have proven that there's no colour that's off-limits these days. And while red is one of this season's most coveted makeup trends, it seems like there's nothing new to say about red lipstick. We all know it's a classic, an easy way to pull together an outfit that otherwise feels a little boring, and a makeup-bag must-have.
But before you say you know everything about how to wear the shade and move on, we're showing you 5 bold new ways – and places – to wear the hue, and we bet you'll find at least one you have yet to try!
TREND: 5 NEW WAYS TO WEAR RED MAKEUP
INCORPORATE IT INTO YOUR CAT EYE
Looking for a new way to amp up your classic cat-eye? Incorporate a thick strip of crimson right on top of your traditional black liquid liner for a bold new look that will keep all eyes on you. Who said red could only be worn on the lips?
OPT FOR BURNT RED
Vibrant reds and dark plums a little too much for you? Try a burnt brick-red shade of lipstick – it's the cool girl's alternative to bright cherry! Keep your eye makeup to a minimum by coating your lashes with one swipe of black mascara.
RUST ON THE LIDS
If you aren't the cat-eye type of gal, try coating your lids with a rust-red tone – these shades look amazing brushed across the entire upper lid and smudged out along the lower lashes. Just add a little lip balm to finish off and you're set!
TWO SHADES ON YOUR LIPS
Otherwise known as lip contouring, wearing two shades of red lipstick on your lips will enhance your pout giving it a fuller, more plump appearance. Start by filling in your lips using a rich, wine-red liner or lipstick, then layer over that with burgundy. L'Oreal's Colour Riche lip palette in red is perfect for getting the job done!
GLITTER RED LIPS
For her fall 2016 collection, Donatella Versace changed the red lipstick game, showcasing models with a vamp-y oxblood coloured lipstick that was coated with a heavy layer of sparkles. To get achieve this major (daring) trend, coat your lips with a red, plum or oxblood shade of your choice, then dip your fingers into a powdered sparkle formula, and rub onto your lips. The best part about this look? Sparkly red lips make enough of a statement that you can skip eye makeup altogether.
