Fall Lipstick Guide

I'll be talking quite a bit this month about how I transition my skin care & beauty into the new season & I'm kicking it off today by sharing a few of my favorite fall lip colors.  I love to play around with different shades based on my mood and the look I'm going for.  Autumn beauty is all about rich hues and pretty jewel tones, but it's easy to be deceived by the way a color looks in the tube vs. on your lips.  Because so many of you commented on how helpful my spring lipstick guide was, I decided to do it again - this time featuring darker colors & matte finishes that feel perfect for the coming season.

Before applying more pigmented lip shades, I always start with a creamy concealer as a base and I use an invisible lip liner around the edges of my lips - this keeps the color from feathering or bleeding & helps it stay put longer.   Sometimes I'll add a dab of clear gloss in the center of my bottom lip to create the illusion of a fuller pout.  I also try to keep the rest of my makeup very simple when I'm wearing a bolder lip color so the look is more balanced (a shimmery taupe shadow & black mascara is all you need).  Let me know if you have a favorite color below or if there's one you swear by that I've missed here!
