Fall has arrived, and it’s finally time to start getting out the deeper, richer, and warmer colors. The best way we ring in autumn in the south is through the colors that we wear. There are the brave few who wear sweaters and long sleeves (me), but other than that, colors. are. key. One of my favorite ways to get into the fall spirit is lipstick! A few of these are oldies AND goodies, some are newer, some are a little more expensive and others are super affordable. There’s something for everyone!!
Nudes and Everyday: When I think of fall nudes, dusty and warm undertones cross my mind. It’s such a subtle way to get into the fall spirit without going full vampy, if that’s not your thing. Nudes are also a bit hard for me to find. Traditional nudes are too light for my coloring, but brown nudes are too dark and look like a statement lip. It’s taken me forever and a day to find those in the middle shades that will work for tan skin tones. A few of these champions are MAC’s Stone, Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Ashton, and Maybelline Color Sensational in Untainted Spice . Stone has that dustier undertone, while Ashton and Untainted Spice have the really warm bases.
Dark Red: WOOP WOOP! Time to pull out the burgundy and wine colors! Revlon’s Black Cherry and Maybelline Creamy Matte in Divine Wine are the two reds I wear ALL through the “colder” months. (update I found my perfect bright, red lipstick -stay tuned!)
Berries: If there is a better season to fit in berry colors besides Fall, LET ME KNOW. Berry tones are my favorites to wear. It’s a bold color, but not too bold because of the pink base they usually have. Berry colors really suit me and I wear them throughout the year, but when September rolls around, that’s when it gets really exciting! A few products to check out are MAC’s Rebel, Maybelline’s Color Jolt Lip Paint in Berry Naughty( a really good dupe for Rebel!! I decided not to swatch both to save my lips), and the LA Colors Matte Lipstick in Enduring. Enduring can be found at the dollar store. Talk about beauty on budget!!
