Fall's hottest lip colors

Fall lip colors

I tend to keep my lipstick pretty tame throughout the year, but there's something about fall that makes me want to swipe on rich, bold shades. And while I usually reserve a statement lip for going out or special occasions, the cooler temperatures inspire me to rock a plum or berry pout even if I'm just running errands on the weekend.

No matter which shade you try -- and I do recommend testing out a bunch to find the best match for your skin tone! -- make sure to balance out your look accordingly. If you go for a dramatic smokey eye, try a more subdued lip with a shade of taupe, nude or a subtle red stain. I also like pairing a deep plum with more natural makeup and big lashes.

Do you have a go-to fall shade?

  1. Great picks Alison!
    I mostly wear red/coral lipsticks but this year I am madly in love with Dior's 'Addict Extreme' Lipstick in Bone Ave, it's the best plum color I've ever seen and the lipstick is just amazing.

  2. I love going for darker hues come the cooler months -- after that tan fades, I definitely need a little pop of color to feel put together :) I've been looking for the perfect plum hue, but haven't quite found it yet...

  3. Loving those berry colors. I've been into reds lately, but maybe I should purchase one of those to add to my collection.

  4. Great picks! Love the wine and neutral colors.


  5. Love the berry shades!
