How to Rock Wine Lipstick, the Color of the Season, Like the Stars

We prefer a nice red wine — when we're talking about lips, that is!

As modeled by countless stars on the red carpet over the past few months, wine lipstick is officially the shade of the season (perhaps even 2015!). And the best news: It flatters every skin tone.

Just look at the burgundy hue on Lupita Nyong'o, Carey Mulligan, and Nina Dobrev — three ladies with different skin tones, and yet each one looks splendid in the hue! But that doesn't mean that there aren't tricks to the trade when it comes to finding the perfect shade for you.
