Traditional autumnal hues like warm browns and classic reds continue to be perennial favorites. On the one hand, shades of burgundy, plum, and cherry will be taking over the center stage this season—but it doesn’t end there. Innovative balms, stains, and oils consistently come in. To say the least, it only makes sense as to why fall is an exciting time to experiment with beauty. 

On the right way to wear the fall lip

Creating a perfect fall lip takes more time, effort, and attention than just a swipe. The secret? Proper preparation and application. Start by exfoliating the lips with a gentle lip scrub. Once accomplished, proceed with blotting the area to absorb extra moisture that could cause the product to bleed. Lastly, swipe on a trusted lip primer to help prolong the color’s wear.

Deep and dark lip colors are more prone to bleeding and smearing, but fret not. Micellar water and super thin q-tips can fix any beauty mistakes. Pro tip: Another hack for a clean lip finish is to set the rim of the mouth with a translucent powder. It creates an invisible barrier that keeps the skin around the lips matte and oil-free.

Alongside are the classic mattes and glosses—the best swipe for a complete fall beauty experience.
