Trending Fall/Winter Color: Oxblood

Oxblood is the hot hue of the season. Almost anything is available in this dark burgundy shade. Leather pants, purses, trench coats, headbands, t-shirts, dresses, ankle boots and many more things. There is no surprise that it has become a hit in the makeup world as well. You can find this shade in blushes, eye shadows, lip liner, lipsticks, eyeliners, mascara and nail polish.

The great thing about oxblood makeup looks is that they are always multidimensional. They are usually paired with rich golds and deep browns, creating a very sultry look. This hue can look great for very bold high-fashion wear (see models below on the left), to red carpet wear (Kristen Stewart is seen with these kinds of smokey eyes often) and also everyday wear. 

Though you may not want to wear such a bold shade on your wedding day, this shade would be great for a night out with the girls or a bachelorette party!
