It’s not that we want or need to stand out.
I am feeling more as the gloomy winter months roll in that I need a slight shake-up, a refresh to see me through until spring fever puts a spring in my step.
I’m stuck in sweaters and pants most days with the hair strung up if it hasn’t had a decent do and I’m running back and forth to our building projects, so sneakers are the go. A lift is in order and lipstick is my solution. A deep dark burgundy that warms, not chills but one that is less bright than our classic vermillion red is the go-to.
This colour works a treat and for whatever reason it simply makes me feel better groomed.
Small treats /big results – I’m all for that.
Which burgundy is the question?
Like all reds, there are shades and shades.
I like a dark burgundy, a browner rather than blue tone and the braver I feel, the darker I go.
Like my red- reds, I have a rainbow of burgundy shades to work with.
I know, who needs a handful of burgundy lipsticks – I’m not justifying – I know you understand.
The trick is to wear a burgundy not only with confidence but also one with a little life. Right now “Deep Brown Berry” from the Bobbi Brown range is my bestie. It’s dark and deliciously creamy.
Late January, if your world is in the northern hemisphere, deserves a little brightening. Try burgundy it works for me. xv
