GUEST POST: Maroon Lipstick - How to Wear It and Where to Buy It

Any woman has a maroon lipstick in their lipstick collection. If you do not have it, make sure you purchase one. This colour will bring out the shape of your lips, boosting them. Wearing a dark lipstick can be tricky because you cannot wear it all the time. At least that is what makeup artists advise women. 

You need to make sure that the lipstick you wear is appropriate for the event you go to. 

Some argue that a maroon lipstick or a burgundy shade is better when used in the fall. It is also advisable to use it at evening events. If you wear a substantial colour, then you need to dress accordingly. Summer clothing colours are inappropriate in combination with this lipstick shade, so you’d better avoid it. 

This is a bold colour which requires some attitude. So step out of your comfort zone once in a while and forget about your nude lipsticks. Try out this amazing colour which will make you look mysterious and feminine. During the winter, you can spice up your outfit with a maroon lipstick which contrasts with the snow. By only wearing grey or black coats during the cold season it makes spring seem so far off. 

 Liven up your outfit choosing a maroon lipstick. Furthermore, a maroon shade goes perfectly well with dark clothing, making you look sophisticated. And even if the winter is gone and you put aside the heavy coats and dark clothes, you can still match a maroon lipstick to your outfit. However, you need to pay attention to the colours. 

A maroon lipstick shows how confident you are and makes you look exquisite. 

A maroon lipstick is perfect during the cold season. 

You can wear light colours when it comes to your clothes and adds a little bit of magic when applying a dark lipstick. Some women have the false impression that a maroon lipstick needs to match with some other colour in your outfit. You do not need to have the same colour of lipstick on your clothes. You can simply wear it with a white t-shirt or one with floral patterns. 

If you want to look glamorous, you can always wear it at an evening event. Many celebrities wear it on the red carpet. Even if you do not have an extravagant dress, you can still look extravagant when wearing such a lipstick. 

The best maroon lipsticks to use are the following:

You can purchase a maroon lipstick from any cosmetic shop. However, you need to make sure you purchase a quality lipstick. Try a popular brand, recommended by some make-up artists. Sephora or Amazon are always some of the best choices. 

When applying the lipstick, you need to keep in mind some significant and easy tricks. First, you need to exfoliate and moisturise your lips. Then, make sure you use a matching lip liner to line your lips. Use lip brush to apply the lipstick. In this way, you will have control when applying it. Use concealer to clean up the edge. Then, you will have an exquisite look. 

Summing up, both gloss and matte maroon lipstick is always a good idea as long as you know how to match it to your outfit and with the event you are going. Be bold and use a dark shade to make you stand out of the crowd!
