The eclectic mix presents a perfect palette of colors for all skin tones and raises the glam quotient up a few level. So without any delay, let’s begin, shall we?
According to leading experts, the shades for the season are predominantly in the red family, but if you feel particularly adventurous, oxidized and orange shades too, are very much in vogue.
1. Crimson Magic
Crimson can never go wrong. Period. Be it a luncheon with the girls or a date night, set it alight in a shade that demands to be viewed and craves the spotlight! Crimson Magic is one of the signature reds in the Coloressence Gold Matte Intense Lip Color range and is highly recommended for both a sangeet (take away the attention from the bride, baby) or even a casual brunch scene with friends (we’re sure they will NOT be able to get their eyes off your sizzling pout!) You could also to create fuller lips by first lining them with the Coloressence Lip Liner Pencil and then filling the lips with the Lip Color.
Fill the winter air with a shade that will make others blush! The normal pastels do not look so classy in the crisp winter air and we need something more dramatic and stark to stand out in the sombre skies. Cranberry from the Intense Long Wear Lip Color range is our signature shade and is highly fashionable this winter. The shade will carry you through the day, whether at work or at play. Sure it is a tad dramatic and flush, but that’s exactly what the drab winter needs. Put on some nude makeup and just highlight your cheekbones with the Shimmer Brick Highlighter from Coloressence and team it with Cranberry to be the cynosure of all eyes!
3. Burnt Sienna

Citrus is the fruit of the season, and what better way to get in the mood, than with a fiery, citrus-inspired shade? Reds have dominated the makeup scene since decades but well, change is a part of life! Orange or Tangerine hues have picked up well and in fact, pair up very nicely with the Indian skin tones. Tangerine Rush, from Coloressence’s Gold Matte Intense Lip Color Range is just what the doctor ordered.

Think a lazy winter evening and think wine! Yes, but not in your glass but on your lips!
