7 Fall Lipsticks We’re Really Excited to Wear
Listen: We all love summer and its affinity for barely there makeup. (After all, the less you have on your face, the less risk you have of it melting off.) But when autumn rolls around, you can finally bust out those rich, bold lipsticks—and push the boundaries a bit with trends. Here, the seven shades we’ll be wearing the next few months.
Though a darker lipstick for fall isn’t exactly groundbreaking, this year the darks are dark. Case in point: a moody plum that borders on black. Skip the liner and apply it straight from the tube. (Over-lining can look dated with darker shades.)
If plum lips are a tad too intimidating, consider a juicy cranberry instead. The balanced blend of pink and red tones flatters all skin types.
Charlotte Tilbury ($32)
And there’s always the option to swipe on a berry-tinted balm—either on its own or as a subtly-shiny layer over lipstick.
There are some ’90s trends we’re fine with leaving in the past. (Looking at you, pencil-thin brows.) But the cool brown lips that dominated the decade? Let’s bring that back. Again, skip the liner with darker shades to keep it looking modern.
Bite Beauty ($24)
Nothing beats a creamy pink lipstick for everyday wear. Seriously, it’s the LBD of your beauty kit. Dress it up with heavy eyeliner and mascara—or dress it down with a fresh face.
Lipstick Queen ($24)
Peach is typically thought of as a springtime shade, but that’s actually part of what makes it so refreshing for fall. With hints of pink and orange, it brightens up your face without overpowering it.
Ask Adele or Gwen or pretty much a any A-list celebrity: When you’re trying to make a statement, a bold red lipstick is always a good idea. Besides, what else is going to save you when you’re at your pastiest?
