The Lady is a Vamp

The perfect Halloween accessory doesn’t even require a costume.

Halloween is the season of creepy-chic—that strange albeit enviable intersection between sinister and glamourous.  Nothing so deftly combines old Hollywood beauty with eerie allure like dark lipstick—we’re talking rich, robust hues a la merlot, cabernet, and other wino-inspired shades that conjure images of vampires, witches, and ghouls with berry- (or blood?-) stained lips.  Yes, burgundy is the color of the year, but vampy lips have always belonged to October, rotating trends aside.  Adding a dark red, berry, or purple lip will never not add a touch of mystery, and whether you mean to or not, who ever said a bit of mystery was a bad thing?
