September has gone by so fast and without us even knowing, October will have gone by as quick too. But the start of the “Ber” months marks the entrance of autumn. Which means, time to trade in loose clothing for thicker layers, swimming for keeping warm, and beautiful, bright lipsticks for more goth-like colors. Autumn marks the beginning of every dark lip lover’s dream and every nude lip lover’s nightmare. So, if you’re still struggling to find your autumn lipstick shade, we have compiled five fabulous lip colors just for you to suit those who love bold lips to those who love neutral shades and all those lip colors in between!
Of course, the number one lipstick for autumn is a berry color, because how else can you top a color that reminds us all of leaves falling and cozying up at home with a cup of Pumpkin Spice Latte, homemade of course. Whether your berry lipstick has a red or violet tint to it is totally up to you. This rich, standout shade is one versatile day-to-night lipstick that you won’t be able to put down.
A red lipstick is something that can never be left out off any season – it’s timeless, it’s chic, and it can pull any look together. But for autumn, instead of going for a bright red, try a brick-colored red instead. It still has that beautiful rose petal color, but muted. Some brick reds even have slight tints of brown to them! Or if you’re not all about the ‘brick red’ life, you can always opt for a Marsala color. Think of Marsala as a neutral, slightly bold, red shade with a little bit of ‘berry’ in it. If you find bright, berry lipsticks are too much for you, this shade of red will be perfect.
Mauve, another neutral shade that looks amazing on all skin tones, is a neutral color you could try this season. I know autumn lip colors are all about dark, berry or red lips, but mauve is making a move here. It’s medium-dark pink hue makes it a favorite due to resembling the lip color Kylie Jenner wears on her lips. Wear this either in a matte or glossy finish, but one thing’s for sure, you’re going to have some plump-looking lips this season!
Pretty in Pink
A surprise color for this fall is ‘Bubblegum Pink’ – it’s bright, it’s feminine, and if you liked Barbie as a child, you are going to finally have an excuse to wear your favorite doll’s lip color and not feel an ounce of shame. You can wear it matte to mute it down for daytime, but for nighttime, you can dial it up by applying a clear lip gloss for that extra punch.
Nude, like red, is another classic shade. Nothing says ‘no makeup’ makeup like a nude lipstick. But for fall this year, brown nudes are in. Forget about your peachy nudes, pinky nudes, pale nudes, and give brown nudes a chance! They say the 90s are back this year and if you loved that decade, you are going to want to wear this shade. It’s another one of those shades that amazingly works for all skin tones!
