Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you’ve most likely seen the latest makeup trend to take over the red carpet and the runway. Oxblood makeup, in all of its dark and deep glory, has been popping up on lips, tips and cheeks for over a month and we’ve been coveting the trend ever since it hit Fashion Week. Though the color may be intimidating if you’re typically a clear gloss and mascara kind of girl, there’s a way that every girl can wear the trend.
The key to getting the look right is to focus the color in one area and to leave the rest of your look neutral. Whether you choose to highlight your eyes, lips, cheeks, or nails, just make sure to keep the color in just one area – overwhelming yourself with such a strong color can make you look like Morticia Addams instead of Camilla Belle.
We’ve put together all of the beauty products you’ll need to get the look right. Take a look through and let us know how you’re planning on vamping up your look, whether it’s for Halloween or post-October 31.
