How to Select the Perfect Fall Lip Color
Selecting the perfect lipstick for fall involves considering various factors such as your skin tone, personal style, and the overall fall color palette. Here are 7 steps to help you choose the perfect fall lips:
Determine Your Skin Undertone:
- Warm undertones (golden yellow, negative pink; peaches and cream complexions): Opt for lipsticks with warmer undertones like peachy nude, brick red, warm berry, or terracotta and copper
- Cool undertones (pink or blue; olive complexions): Look for lipsticks with cooler undertones such as plum, deep burgundy, or mauve and dusty rose.
Think About Your Personal Style:
- Your personal style plays a role in choosing the perfect fall lipstick. Are you more into natural looks or bold statements? Choose a shade that aligns with your style preferences.
Pay Attention to the Seasonal Palette:
- Fall is associated with warm, earthy tones and rich, deep colors. Lipstick shades that mimic these colors are often suitable.
- Consider shades like deep red, burgundy, rust, plum, or even dark chocolate brown.
- For those who want to join the season, but don't enjoy the deep tones, warm soft nudes are a great option to turn to.
- If you're someone who needs a pop of color, where nudes wash you out and deep colors are too harsh, try a warm rich orange or red. You will get the vividness that you desire while staying in warm tones to coordinate with the season.
Longevity and Finish:
- Decide whether you prefer a matte, satin, or glossy finish.
- Matte lipsticks often last longer but can be drying, while glossy lipsticks are more hydrating but may require more frequent touch-ups.
Consider Lip Liner:
- Lip liner can help define your lips and prevent feathering or bleeding of the lipstick.
- Choose a shade that matches your lipstick or is slightly darker.

Remember that the "perfect" lipstick for fall ultimately depends on your personal preferences, style, and undertones. Experimenting with different shades can be fun, and it's a great way to find the lipstick that makes you feel confident and beautiful during the fall season.
