Fall is approaching and makeup, especially lipstick will be the focal point. This season, the smokey colors are there, but the vibrant colors are as well, giving you the choice to take your look to every level. Add to your lipstick looks neutral and colorful shadows and rose-colored cheeks.
Dark Red/ Burgundy
Dark red/burgundy is the main fall lipstick color for fall. This go-to color is the perfect color for the evening, but can also be worn during the day. Wear your darker lip colors with dark hair and neutral makeup, for a clean/polished evening look. Add subtle rosy cheeks to give it a very soft appeal. Accessorize with bold earrings like odd-shaped hoops or dangling chandelier earrings.
Fill in your brows for a thicker, full brow to compliment your bold lips. If you want to wear the look during the day, you can keep your eyes clean and wear foundation and blush. Since this look is very posh, try dressing in a black blouse and accessorize with gold earrings. Match your top with black jeans or pants that flare at the hem.
Metallic lips are the wild card for fall lipstick this season. The metallic aspect makes any look pop. Wear these lips with a smokey purple or midnight blue eye color palette. To add more color, try orange, and a red blend of eyeshadow. Elongate your eyelashes with a volumizing mascara. If you want more of a light look, try metallic lip gloss instead of lipstick. You can add a base color and carefully place your metallic gloss on top. This will bring out the starting color, adding touches of shimmer.
You can keep your cheeks lighter, with a rosy blush. Wear this lip look with an all-black outfit and open-toe heels for a sultry look. You can add to the pop of color in your fall lipstick with an embellished clutch or a bling necklace. You can wear an outfit with hints of purple and gold. The best jewelry accessories for this look would be silver rings and necklaces.
The season for pumpkin picking and fall colors including pumpkin red fall lipstick. You can wear this look with a natural eye and a bold liner. This look can be worn especially during the day and can be complemented with an orange-red liner. Keep the cheeks clear/with no blush. Add full lashes for a high fashion look. Line your eyes in black to keep the look sharp. You can opt for a lipstick or a high shine gloss in the same color.
This shade pairs well with a white button-up or t-shirt. Wear a high bun or top-knot to keep the focus on your face. You can wear a brown handbag or shoes to compliment. Keep your bottoms simple with skinny jeans or mom jeans. If you want to wear this look for a date night, try wearing a white or black tank that is not ribbed. This way, you create a smooth look and can pair any pants with your top. Showcasing your arms will also bring attention to your lips in a subtle way. Opt for a sleeveless halter if you want a sexy look.
This neutral-colored fall lipstick is the best when it comes to day wear. Add a thick, black-winged liner on top of a nude shadow for drama. To open your eyes, try wearing wispy eyelashes and fill in your brows. Avoid making your brows too thick by shaping them first and lightly stroking your eye pencil. You can match this look with jeans and a t-shirt if you need to make a quick store run. You can wear black pumps and slacks with a floral blouse to add color. This look is also ideal for the office and professional settings since it has such a muted tone.
If you want to create a look with similar colors that go with this fall lipstick, wear a nude and gold shadow. Create more of a soft edge, line your eyes with a thin winged liner. Or, you can skip the winged part of the liner and wear a thin liner and soft pink shadow. Add highlight and color cheeks for a fresh-faced feel, if you want to skip the liner altogether. Keep your hair simple with long, beach waves or straighten your hair and wear a side part. You can also wear a bun that isn’t too polished, creating a chic messy look.
Fuchsia pink is a vibrant color that can be worn with evening wear and silver colors. This fall lipstick color will sparkle like a gem. It creates a glam look, especially if you want to modernize a retro look. For a glam vintage look, wear your hair in sleek waves. Add foundation and blush. Keep your eyes neutral or skip wearing eyeshadow and liner. Add mascara or short eyelashes. With this look, thicker eyebrows are an option. Fill in your brows and shape them in a slight curve. This will soften your face, with the finishing look being romantic and feminine.
If you want your lips to match your outfit, try not to over-wear the color. Choose jeans in a light wash or white. Add accessories that are bold in construction, like a double strap shoulder tote. Wear a printed shirt that has hints of fuchsia. Keep your look glamorous with full curls or a 60’s style pin-up. If you choose to wear your hair straight, add hair accessories. You can try a bedazzled hair clip or hairpins. Continue the jewel look with long, chandelier earrings and a bling clutch. If you decide to wear oversized earrings, skip a necklace so that you won’t overhaul on accessories. When you’re wearing a dress, a long, fitted black dress with a side slit will pair well.
Fall season will be here before you know it! Make sure you’re ready for fall lipsticks in dark and bright shades. Try these makeup looks with eyes and cheeks that are more toned down, to bring attention to your lips. Thinking ahead to your fall outfits, which fall lipstick shade will look best with your everyday wear?
