Fall is the perfect time to play with lip colors. As we transition from the highlighter hues of the Summer the darker shades come out to play with lip sticks, stains and glosses. Whether you prefer the dewy look or a bold matte pout every line is coming out with these edgier colors lately and we want to try all of them!
Traditionally, lip colors ranged from pink to red. With influences from the limelight new brands are stocking the shelves giving us purples, grays and deep neutrals. Kat Von D has paved the way with her signature red lip but her line of lip sticks are unique with Shimmer Navy and Matte Pitch Black. If you like to do some online shopping Color Pop has a line of neutrals that is anything but boring! Try their colors Lax or Limbo to compliment any skin tone with a grayish purple tone or Color Raine in Soul or Raine Fever for a flawless finish. Deep violet is a fabulous alternative to classic red and we are obsessed with Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Sheer Berry for this new trend.
For the best application start with a lip primer. The goal is to create a smooth, even base for the color to stick to. Try Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer as a starter. NYX has an affordable version which gets the job done just as well. Avoid any clumping in the corners and of course don’t get any on your front teeth! You’ll be ready to pile on the layers let your lips speak for themselves with these new color trends in time for the colder weather. Throw your best new accessory in your purse and slip into your boots. The sun sets a little earlier and our lip colors are following this darker season.
