Whether you know it as wine-colored, burgundy, or maroon, you've probably noticed a certain deep purplish-red hue amongst some of the most raved about makeup trends. You could say ‘tis the season for rocking a maroon makeup look. Below, find five maroon makeup looks to try—from maroon lipstick to maroon eyeshadow—as well as two ways to take your maroon makeup look to the next level this fall and winter. Hint: We see maroon nails and maroon hair in your future!
MAROON MAKEUP LOOK #1: MAROON EYESHADOW
STEP #1: PRIME YOUR EYES
STEP #2: APPLY YOUR SHADOW
Start by applying a nude shade, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Paris Beach, all over your lid. Then, apply the shade Petite Perle around the inner corner of your eye to brighten the look. Complete your maroon eyeshadow look by popping Matte-Ison Avenue into your crease for a subtle, gorgeous touch of maroon. If you want to add more of the same shade, drag your maroon eyeshadow along your lower lash line for a sultry look.
STEP #3: COAT YOUR LASHES
Finish your maroon eye makeup by applying mascara. Amp up the drama by giving your lashes voluptuous volume and intense length with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mystic Black.
MAROON MAKEUP LOOK #2: MAROON BLUSH
MAROON MAKEUP LOOK #3: MAROON LASHES
Focus on just your lashes to add a subtle, on-trend pop of maroon to your makeup look! You can do so by using the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Deep Burgundy. This mascara separates and builds your lashes for a fringe with bold volume. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Primer prior to coating your lashes with mascara to boost your lash look and make your burgundy mascara more noticeable.
MAROON MAKEUP LOOK #4: MAROON LIPSTICK
One of the easiest ways to embrace the maroon makeup look trend? Popping on a maroon lip color, of course! There are so many fun ways to incorporate a maroon lipstick into your makeup look—feel free to get creative with your options. Below, find a few of our favorite maroon lipsticks to color your pout.

TWO WAYS TO TAKE YOUR MAROON MAKEUP LOOK TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Can’t get enough of the maroon makeup trend? Here are two ways to kick your maroon makeup look up a notch.
MAROON BOOST #1: MAROON HAIR
Who says you can only use makeup to upgrade your maroon makeup look? Trust us, adding some maroon strands to your mane with a wash-out hair color like the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Hair Makeup 1-Day Color in Raspberry will do the trick. This temporary hair color washes out in just one shampoo, so you don’t have to worry about committing to permanently changing your locks. If you’re ready to embrace maroon hair fully (for the long haul), color your mane with the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Deep Burgundy.
MAROON BOOST #2: MAROON NAILS
Let your mani do the talking and amp up the maroon vibes by rocking maroon nails! We may be totally biased, but we think this is the perfect nail polish shade for fall and winter. Head to your salon ASAP or pick up a maroon polish to paint your fingers and toes in this gorgeous hue.
