Burgundy Beauty Buys

From lipsticks to eyeshadows, see how the gothic look makes its way into your make-up bag.

In keeping with the gothic style sweeping the catwalks this autumn, deep burgundy is set to be one of the leading make-up trends this season. From striking lipsticks to smouldering eye shadows, the opportunities to revamp your look this season are endless. Designers have cleverly teamed this prominent use of burgundy with minimalistic skin make up, combined with nudes and golds, to create a bold but understated look, perfect for any occasion day or night. These high street essentials make this catwalk look accessible.

Barry M Magnetic Effect, Superdrug, £4.99.

If you don’t feel confident enough to incorporate this trend into your  make-up, why not try wearing a deep burgundy nail colour. Barry M’s burgundy nail varnish is affordable and long lasting and even allows you to customise your own nail effects with its magnetic effect formula.

Glam ‘Eyes Mono Eye Shadows in Spicy Bronze, Superdrug, £4.49.

Burgundy eye shadow particularly compliments blue eyes, but can be worn by anyone to create a smouldering up-to-date look. Apply in the corner and creases of the lid to intensify the colour of your eyes. For an even more piercing evening look, team with dark kohl or black liquid eyeliner.

No.7 Moisture Drench Lipstick, Boots, £9.00.

Exclusive to Boots, this rich plum colour is perfect for creating a standout pout. It’s specially designed formula ensures that your lips remain soft and hydrated even in the harshest winter conditions.  For that extra special occasion, why not top it off with a glossy shine to add an extra sparkle to your look.
