Wearing Burgundy

I did a post (see here) a couple of weeks ago on the current burgundy trend, and have since picked up a few gorgeous pieces! I'm now thinking of Wintery ways to style burgundy, so here's a few ideas!

First things first- makeup! I think, if you are going to use burgundy tones in your make up, it's best to keep the rest simple, as burgundy is very bold! I would personally use burgundy for my eyes and/or lips, keeping the rest really subtle!

I am in love with Kristen's shimmering, smouldering eyes here! I love how she kept the rest of her makeup neutral and subtle using very little blusher and nude lipgloss. 

I personally feel that for a gorgeous Winter look, burgundy looks fabulous against bronzes, golds and blacks! Have a lovely Monday! Lots of Love,
