Another snow day for us over here in the DC area, hooray? Since I’m staying home therefore have more time to mess around, I decided to put on a little makeup to help me feel pretty and alive in the gloomy snow day. Today’s makeup I’m still keeping everything simple, using my first ever eyeshadow palette and add some gorgeous but light lip color! Winter can’t be over soon enough…
Ladies, the time of beautiful bold and deep(er) color lips is upon us! Fall is the season to break out your fun and rich lip colors, for me I’m excited to use some of the darker shades in my stash that I’ve been holding off during the summer. Here are 4 that I think will get a lot of use this season:
Chanel Rouge Allure in Fatale – One of the first lipsticks I ever purchased. The color is a bold, deep berry that seems really intense when you look at it on its own but is surprisingly subtle (for a bold color) and nice on the lips. The color is very beautiful and classy but more on the serious side, I would most likely pair it with work, date night or formal events.
Lorac Breakthrough Performance Lipsticks in Premiere – An impulse buy during the Lorac sale that I fell in love with, this dusty rose color is the perfect nude for fall! The formula is slightly darker than my natural lip color with a hint of brown, which matches my skin tone very well. This color makes the overall look of my face more mature and the deeper nude adds some warmth to my face which makes it perfect for the colder weather.
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry – This matte dusty pink is perfect for the days you want to add a little more color than just a nude to your lips but don’t want to go quite as far as a bold red or berry.
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout – A bold red with a slight hint of brown. The color is very bright and out there so it is usually reserved for a day where I’m feeling a little more dressy or a night out with LBD, but during the fall I feel this would be a great color to pair with chunky knits and a scarf.
