3 Fave Lip Shades for Fall

Shades of Nude

Nude lipstick honestly nevergoes out of style, no matter the time of year! You can rock this look spring, summer, fall, and winter! One thing you should keep in mind when picking out your perfect shade of nude (and really any lipstick color!) is that it's going to look different depending on your skin tone and lip tone!

Tips to help you pick your perfect shade of nude

If your skin tone is more..

Ivory: Choose one shade darker for definition and sheer for a more natural look

Fair: Light pink nude tones

Olive: Go one shade darker than your skin

Medium: Pink tones; either slightly lighter or slightly darker than your skin tone

Mocha: Mauve-Nudes and Caramel tones

Dark: One shade lighter than your skin tone. Also try pink hues and glossy finishes

Seeing Red

Red is another one of those year-long staples, but if you've spent your summer rocking the no-makeup, been at the pool all day look, or those hot pinks.. it's time to spice it up a bit with a little red number! Your reds are going to vary from the rich blue-red hues to the brighter orange-based tones, but either way..pick your favorite shade and ROCK it!

It wouldn't be fall (or winter) without breaking out your moody colors! Let's be honest.. when you first get your nails done when the seasons change, do you immediately go for those dark maroons?! WE DO! If you haven't tried a darker lip tone, now is the season to do so! It's the perfect look for date night, or something a little more glam. We love a good bold lip color! If you feel like maybe it's a bit "too much," try going lighter on the rest of your makeup when you rock a dark look, or, throw on a lighter colored outfit or accessory (like the earrings pictured below!)
