A throwback to the '90s, brown-based burgundy lips are back this year. You can get a jump on the trend by testing it out this summer! It's a great alternative to red lipstick and will get you ready for some new fall colors.

Try burgundy lipstick with a simple base. Lips become a standout when no extra blush or bronzer is added and the eye makeup is kept to a minimum.

Emma Watson embraces the trend with lips that are painted a dark sumptuous color but slicked over with gloss. This is a great way to try something different with a darker shade.

Burgundy lips are less "look at me!" than red lips and give off a mysterious feeling. The warm rich plum tone means you can add a swipe of bronzer for a warmer glow.
