Trend Spotting: Oxblood Red Lips

Oxblood lip shade from Nars

The hot color for lips right now, you ask? Oxblood red. Apparently the dark, reddish brown hue is the “it” color for fall fashions, home decor and of course, makeup. For eyes, jewel-toned hints of oxblood red shadow heighten the drama to mysterious proportions¬†and for nails, high-gloss oxblood hues give plain old red a run for its money. For lips, the deep color is next to smashing if you find the right shade for your skin tone. We dug up five oxblood lipstick shades for a deeply dramatic, totally trendy pout.
