Discover your perfect lipstick of the season

Fall is full of exciting lip wardrobe choices! Finding your perfect shade among the season’s offerings of classic red, plum wine and berry is as easy as sipping a cup of cocoa by the fire.

The big trick with bold color selection is to first identify the right texture for you.

The brave and trendy will want to make a statement in a matte lipstick. The casual lipstick lover might play it straight with a smooth satin. For women who favor minimalist makeup, a sheer tint can be worn with ease.

Once you have the texture you're comfortable with, let’s pick the most exciting color for your coloring.

For fair friends looking to make an impact, an orange-based red is the perfect choice. The bright shade will stand out even from across the room, while the orange undertone will contrast beautifully against milky skin.

Medium- and deeper-toned girls should opt for a blue-based red to get the same wow factor from the season’s classic.

My beloved berry is back this fall to brighten up medium-olive skin tones. A good berry with hints of purple is not only on trend, it adds an unexpected pop to dark-haired beauties. It’s gorgeously deep without being goth.

Deep berries can look muddy on fair complexions, so if you have a lighter complexion you’ll want to lean toward a pinkish berry.

Shades of plum wine will be on everyone’s lips this autumn. Richer than berry and fresher than holiday red, the latest round of plum lipsticks have subtle hints of burgundy making this warm color especially flattering for deeper skinned brunettes. The hue also plays perfectly against deep ha and plays perfectly against dark hair.

Plum is a crisp color that's been waiting for the temperatures to drop before making its comeback.
