“September days are here, with summer’s best of weather and autumn’s best of cheer.”
-Helen Hunt Jackson
I walked outside and it was only in the 80s- a major drop from the 100+ weather DC has been having all year. The best part- no humidity! Of course, even a hint of cooler temps makes me ready for over the knee boots and deep burgundy lips. I’ve been updating my lipstick collection for fall and here are some of the shades I’ll be rocking over the next few six months:
1: NARS Fire Down
Have you ever used a NARS product? If not you’re missing out! They might be a little more pricey than most products, however, the price is worth it for thelong-lastingg colour and silky application.
2: MAC Dare You
The perfect on trend matte red/brown colour! I went through two sticks of this last year and just got my third. If you’re looking for the perfect deep red for fall you can’t go wrong with this on!
3: e.l.f. Ravishing Rose
At only $3 this is a must have lippie! The dusty pink shade is a classic and lovely with all your winter whites. Plus the formula is smooth and doesn’t pull when applying!
4: Maybelline Divine Wine
A great drugstore find (it even has a matching nail polish!), this will fulfill every dark lip lust you have this season! And at the great price point you won’t feel bad when you lose it. (Am I the only one who loses lippies all the time??)
5: Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche in Tannin
I was recently introduced to to Bite Beauty and obsessed is a good way to describe my feelings on it. This lippie has amazing colour payoff and stays put- which means you won’t look like a 2 yr old who got into mommy’s makeup by 3pm.
I can’t wait to wear these red lips with a bare face and a bit of brow gel for a fresh modern French take on fall beauty!
Are you digging the slightly cooler temps? I’m heading up to NYC for NYFW on Thursday and I’m hoping it’ll at least stay in the low 80’s for the trip!
