Let’s be honest, when you think of autumn lipstick, you automatically think of deep, dark berry shades. But this season's hottest hues go way beyond the classic berry. Here are four lipstick shades you need to try this season that aren’t berry-inspired.
If you thought brown lipstick was a thing of the past, think again. The great thing about brown is it’s bolder than a classic nude lip but less aggressive than a vampy oxblood lip, making it incredibly versatile. Brown is also one of those elusive universally flattering shades that suits all skin tones.
While a bright red lipstick is a makeup staple, this season it’s all about brick red. With its slightly burnt hue, it gives you a moodier feel than the vivid shades you might be use to. The muted colour usually has hints of brown running through it and looks great paired with a soft smokey eye or with plenty of bronzer.
Although coral lipstick is a must in summer, it’s also the perfect way to brighten up your autumn look. Fair complexions look best in peach hues, while deeper skin tones dazzle in richer orange-reds.
A swipe of nude lipstick is an easy way to look like you made an effort without going overboard. While some people can be a little intimidated by the pale colour, the truth is the perfect nude makes your face look fresh and youthful. The key is to make sure you pick a shade that’s right for your undertone and don’t go lighter than the natural colour of your bare lips. As a general rule of thumb, nudes should be more rosey pink than brown.
