Burgundy color: the color you will want this season in makeup

The burgundy color is one of those that continues to triumph season after season. Its mixture of reds and oranges make it one of the most desired fall colors in fashion, decoration and even beauty. We give you the best tips and our favorite products so that you can succeed with the trend color.


When temperatures drop it is time to return to dark colors , to leave behind the bright colors that have been the protagonists of our summer and to get hold of all these burgundy tones that the new season brings us. But don’t worry because they are anything but boring! Take note: autumn is dyed burgundy and with it also our makeup. Eyeliner , shadows , nails , of course the lips and even the eyelashes! Give free rein to your imagination, combine and create the most flattering looks. Leave fuchsia pinks and oranges behind and welcome dark tones that do not go unnoticed.

Burgundy is an intense color and one of the favorites of designers of both fashion, decoration and beauty. A color full of elegance and sophistication, perfect to also add to your makeup routine.

Of course, do not forget that to achieve the best results and especially if we are going to use dark colors, preparing our skin becomes more necessary than ever . For dark shadows, set them and achieve a more intense hue with a primer . Lips and deep tones can also be challenging, they can be patchy and leave an uneven hue. So that this does not happen, remember to hydrate them well and exfoliate them once a week .

Another thing you have to take into account is balance : if you are going to give your lips a lot of intensity, then bet on more discreet eyes. If, on the other hand, what you are going to enhance are the eyes, give a lighter tone to the lips.

One of the best things about burgundy in makeup is that it combines very well with any type of eyes. It does not matter if you have green, brown, black or blue, burgundy is the perfect color for all. To give you an idea, his popularity in recent years has increased his search on Pinterest by up to 65%. Burgundy makeup, especially in the eye area, continues to be worn, and that is why we want you to go with the latest trends, we will show you some ideas.

5 ideas to make up your eyes with burgundy

Shimmering shadows

Brighten the eye with a burgundy color. The shimmer shadows are perfect for the darkest winter looks, giving depth and luminosity to the eyes. Also, if you are usually a lover of ‘brilli brilli’ you will love this option. You can give this makeup a shiny shadow both in different shades of burgundy and in silver or gold finishes. It is very easy and simple to do, since the glitter can be incorporated directly into the eyes by tapping or opt for a burgundy shadow that already has shine.

In gradient

The gradient is one of our favorite combinations. First, add mascara to your eyes, then do the eyeliner, and enhance the look. Once you have these steps, use an eyeshadow primer to make it last much longer. Start by first adding an eyeshadow in a very light color all over the eyelid, then include a little glitter shadow around the lacrimal area to intensify the look. At each end of the eye go making the gradient little by little. First add a light burgundy shadow, and then add a darker one. If you have small eyes, this gradient is perfect for you as it will intensify your look.

Smoky eyes

Smoky eyes are one of the options we use the most for night makeup. Any option with a smokey eyes is perfect to succeed this season. Innovate, and put aside the black that we always use in this technique and take a risk with a burgundy color. It is much more daring but if you wear a look for example in black, you will make your outfit stand out much more.


If you prefer not to risk with a burgundy color all over the eye, the ideal is to opt for the water line. One of the most different options is this, since it will give more color to the look and without overdoing it. Try to include two shades, one above the eye, and one below.
