As the weather slowly cools down and the leaves begin to fall and change color, our closets are typically the first to see the immediate shift. We dust off the jackets, turtleneck sweaters and scarfs. But one of the items I feel that is most overlooked during this seasonal shift is the perfect lip color. What colors are those? Well it depends on your preference. For me, I don’t believe you can only wear a specific color at a certain time of the year, although I do believe that there are colors that definitely scream fall. Here are a few suggestions.
Metallic’s are one of my recent favorites. It can look intimidating but I promise it isn’t as scary as it might seem. I love the subtle shimmer and natural glow that it gives to the lips. For me it says Christmas/New Year’s Eve, let’s party! Also, a trick incase you’re not looking to apply too much product, apply chapstick before application then your gloss and lastly lightly press your lips on a napkin and voila, subtle yet matte finish.
Plum or should I call it eggplant? This is another favorite color of mine, because it’s almost like the underdog of red. It’s edgy but very classic. I also, feel like it suits so many skin complexions and isn’t as complicated in finding a shade like a red lipstick. A trick when wearing such a bold lip color is to make sure your lips are moisturized, which can help prevent flaking or creasing.
Ombre! Oh my gosh, this the best lip enhancement hack. If you’re looking to give the illusion of larger and full lips, save your money and ombre your lips. It’s so easy and simple. Everyone can do this classic and timeless lipstick application. I remember seeing my mom doing this as a little girl and I have learned this trick myself. All you have to do is find a lip shade you personally like, in my case I love nude lipsticks and then find a lipstick shade that is one to two shades lighter and apply it to the center of your lips and boom, those lips are even more kissable than before!
