As if you guys haven’t heard me say this enough already, I love fall! The clothes, the shoes, the weather, the festivals, the food, and especially the colors… lip colors to be exact! I had some fun playing around with different colors the other day and thought I’d share with you guys what I think will be a few of my regulars this season.
Nude never ever goes out of style, even in the colder months. I bought this lipstick by Tarte over the summer and think it’s going to be a winner year-round. This stuff feels like butter on my lips. It moisturizes while providing beautiful color. The thing I love about nude, is that it goes with just about everything. It can be dressed up or down. The color of this lipstick is Angelic Nude.
I discovered Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Buttercream lip gloss a couple years ago and it’s become a staple in my makeup bag. The shade Sassy Sorbet is a lovely color for fall. Gloss is what I prefer to wear during the work week. I’m usually running behind in the mornings, so this no-fuss cream gloss is easy for me to throw on on my drive to work. This stuff feels absolutely amazing on!
Berry shades are my favorite in the fall. There is so much variety with them. While I adore the dark berry colors, I also love the lighter shades for an everyday look. I discovered Beauty Crop’s PBJ Smoothie Stick in my Birchbox a while back and was really impressed with the color and the wear. It’s that pretty berry color without being too overpowering. Unfortunately, I don’t think they sell this anymore. I couldn’t find it anywhere online. Sad day! If you find it for sale anywhere, let me know! I believe the shade I’m wearing is Guava Nice Day.
04. Deep Red
Classic red lips are a staple, always. In the fall I prefer my reds to be a little deeper than they would be in the summer. I also prefer the matte look for cooler weather, then a glossy finish. Red lips have a way of giving me more self-confidence. Not to mention, red looks good on everyone. And I mean everyone! I’m a huge fan of PopBeauty’s Matte Velvet Lipstix in Ravishing Ruby. So much class with this one.
05. Burgundy and Plum
Going along with the berry trend we talked about earlier, rich burgundy and/or plum shades just scream fall to me. I feel a bit more sassy wearing these types of colors, and I absolutely love it. I fell in love with this lip crayon by Sonia Kashuk in the shade Orchid. The crayon gives me a clean line and it goes on smooth. You can pick one up at your local Target!
06. Brown and Spicy
If you’re looking for a way to change it up, I recommend a shade of brown or something similar. The purplish shades tend to be overused this time of year, so I like to pull out this stunner by Too Faced once in a blue moon. The shade is called Divine Wine, but as you can see in the photo, it’s more of what I’d called an “apple butter brown.” Spicy and rich.
What are some of your favorite fall lip colors?
