Autumn is here again! By far my favorite season. And what says Autumn better than a dark lip ? That vampy look that matches perfectly with the sweater weather and the temperatures that begin to descend as we get closer to winter. This is a trend you can’t miss for the Fall of 2016.
Leaves start to change color and fashion follows. What in the summer were bright colors and shinny bronzers now becomes paler faces and darker lips. Of course you can also use this colors for your eye make up. What I love to do is make my lips stand out! But it’s not only me, every catwalk in the fashion weeks was filled with models wearing a dark lip.
What I personally love to do is combine a perfect and flawless face, thick eyebrows and basic eyes. That way your lips become the center piece of the whole make up. Try picking up a foundation that does not dry your skin but leaves you with a matte finish. Contour your face with cool toned browns instead of orange and sparkly bronzers. Then add a slight touch of pink blush to create the illusion that you are flushed slightly by the cold. Then make your eyebrows defined and thick, I find it gives more character to the look and makes it a bit stronger and appealing. The designers at Chanel would agree with me because that was as well a theme on their catwalk. Add a bit mascara to your eyes, because lets face it: no look is finished without mascara. But try not to use anything else otherwise your look would be to much to be used on a daily basis. To finish the whole look up add your favorite dark lip color!
If you are looking for a darker lip option but you still want to play it safe this is an excellent choice for you! This is really a no brainer, perfect color and formula so you get the autumn look that doesn’t stand out that much. Another plus point is that it is easy to apply. Unfortunately I bought this in Rome so it is not available everywhere. But I found a dupe for you from the same brand and with the same characteristics. The “Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick” in the color Amaranth 109. (Click here to buy)
NYX is amazing for matte lipsticks. This lipstick is in the shade “Siren”. It is the perfect mix of a berry tone with a hint of red. I find it very elegant, amazing even for a night out. Of course being a matte lipstick you need to moisturize the lips before using it. (Click here to buy)
This lip cream has also a matte finish, but what I appreciate the most on it is how long it lasts. If your are looking for a lip colour that stays put all day then this is the perfect one. “Copenhagen” is one of the many shades that NYX brought out with their lip cream collection. Each of this shades is around the 6 euros. Matte, dark, creamy, great price and long lasting. What else would you need? (Click here to buy)
Now your make up collection is autumn ready!
