When I think of autumn, rich berry and burnt orange tones come to mind, but there is so much more to it when it comes to choosing the perfect autumn lip shade… think creamy mocha and spiced mahogany.
A nude lip has become my signature look. I find it goes with any outfit, I mean, please tell me I’m not the only one who matches her lipstick to her outfit? To me, a nude lip brings sophistication leaving me feeling put together and polished without feeling overdone. So for the autumn, you won’t be surprised to see three nude lip combinations in my lipstick wardrobe.
The first one being a classic favourite. Mac Velvet Teddy – my fail safe every day nude lip. This deep beige tone works perfectly layered over Mac Whirl lip pencil adding a subtle fullness and sumptuous hydration.
Rebel is a really dark rich plum colour, perfect for adding a seasonal touch to an all black outfit. Its great for an evening and paired with a copper eye, you’ll have the ultimate party look. Applied on top of Mac Vino lip pencil, the highly pigmented duo will deliver maximum longevity.
Mac Verve can be worn day and night. With its creamy mocha tones and satin formula, its the most hydrating of them all keeping my lips moisturised and hydrated whilst looking effortlessly chic.
It wouldn’t be an autumn lip edit without a classic berry red. Mac Viva Glam 1 is a shade I have had in my collection a while and its generous pigmentation gives a beautiful full coverage. Gliding onto the lips, its a gorgeous cool-toned red suiting many complexions. I love pairing with Mac Kiss Me Quick liner for a statement lip.
Lady Be Good sits right at the top of my nude spectrum with its stunning warm peach tones. Being a liquid lipstick, I find it so smooth and easy to apply, yet it lasts all day and will transform any make up look.
I would love to know your recommendations of what to add next to my lipstick collection. Please leave me a comment below telling me your favourite lip combinations.
