I like to wear burgundy lipstick on days when I'm feeling dramatic. Or edgy. Or when I'm feeling pretty uninspired by my outfit choice. It looks cool with a white tee and boyfriend jeans and totally head-turning with an evening gown. It's a refreshing switch from a classic red lip and it works on everyone—I promise! Feeling hesitant? Just follow the five rules of wearing burgundy lipstick above and you'll be just as obsessed as I am in no time.
