Oxblood Everything

Oxblood? It’s one of those things that looks better than it sounds…a beautiful deep burgundy wine color with hints of chocolate and plum. It’s a high-end editorial hue in fashion and beauty circles, communicating both passion and power!


With so many formulas and shades at your disposal, an oxblood everything tutorial is the pivotal first step in choosing a specific lipstick or gloss combo that works best for your personal style. To complement these looks, try a dark berry lip liner such as Duo Lip Pencil in Wine/Rosewood. You can also shade in the lip entirely to amplify each color, extend wear and further define the lips.

You will want to keep within the oxblood family when selecting cheek color, but stay away from excessively bright blush tones. Begin by using your fingertips to blend Water Canvas Blush in Tuscan Spell (a sheer red currant) on to the cheekbones. This unique cream-to-powder formula is easy to apply and gives skin a healthy-looking, long-lasting glow.

Apply a very light dusting of Dew Drop Radiant Blush to the apples of the cheek with a fluffy Deluxe Blush Brush, for a touch of pearly highlighting shine. Pick a soft mauve with a dash of cocoa and pink, such as Dew Drop Blush in Hearts Desire, and build the color according to your natural skin tone. Paler skins get one swipe on each cheek, while medium and darker skins can add layers until the desired result is achieved.
