Now This Is How You Wear Dark Lipstick

We're used to seeing Dianna Agron looking really pretty on the red carpet — with her fair features and delicate bone structure, the actress is a classic beauty who tends to sport wholesome, natural makeup looks. So, you can imagine our surprise when we saw the Glee star in this shoot over at the beauty site Byrdie, sporting the most badass beauty trends for fall — and totally, utterly, rocking them.

From deep, dark-burgundy lips to metallic-red eyeshadow, this fair maiden proves she can look incredible in even the hardest-to-pull-off beauty looks. The key, in our opinion, to Agron's success? Her killer cheekbones, which are contoured with bronzer and highlighted with a subtle shimmer. The mix of warmth and iridescence ensures her features are emphasized, rather than masked, by the vampier aspects of her makeup — a trick we'll certainly be stealing when we sport our deep lippies this fall.
