It’s the second day of Fall, and the only way I can manage to transition into a Fall is with makeup. And the easiest way to transform your look is with big, bold lips. Whether matte of glossy is your thing, wear it in your shade of choice: red, deep fuschia, brown, burgundy and/or purple. For my fearless beauties, try a dark green or black lip. You may be pleasantly surprised at how sexy you feel.
Not only are dark, sultry lips in for Fall, but one huge trend is the metallic lip. Just recently, legendary makeup artist, Pat McGrath changed the way we see glitter when she launched her new makeup line and made a huge splash with her lipstick kit called, Pat McGrath Labs Lust 004 Lipstick Kit. This kit comes in 3 shade options and features two matte lipsticks, a clear vinyl gloss, a metallic gold pigment, and a microfine glitter. How wearable are glitter lips you ask? Well red carpet mavens, such as Naomi Campbell, have shown us it most certainly is. Sound too messy? You an easy achieve the look with either metallic lipsticks or lip glosses with tons of glitter. In the picture above, I used Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Isabelle, a plum shade with gold glitter on top of a dark burgundy lipstick from Lancome (shade 294). I wish the photo captured just how glittery and shiny my lips were. I feel like you’re guaranteed to have fun wearing so much glitter on your lips because it just makes you so feel happy.
Check out my favorite shades and formulas, as well as some beautiful metallic and glittery lipsticks and lipglosses below. I divided them up for your convenience. Hope you find your favorite new Fall Lipstick(s)!
Stay tuned for Part II…
