    Oxblood, burgundy, merlot...whatever you call it, this distinctive, deep-red hue is having a major moment. While that’s all well and good on the fashion front, it’s not quite as simple to translate this tricky trend to your face. Is it now?

    Read on to get the full scoop on fearlessly adding this bloody-good shade into your makeup routine.
