The official start of fall might have you wiping the dust off of your trusty leather jacket and cozying up in your softest knit sweater, and leave you wanting to try a deeper lip look (think: sultry browns, matte reds, and bold berries) that match the season’s colors. Here, Dior makeup artist Daniel Martin suggests falls hottest hues guaranteed to turn heads.
This stunning wine-colored lipstick packs in so much pigment, all you need is one swipe for a seamless, long-lasting application. Plus, because it’s such a statement shade and makes you look like you put in more effort into your makeup than you did, you can count on shaving 10 to 15 minutes off of your morning routine!
If you haven’t met the HBIC of all matte red lipsticks, then it’s time for you to get acquainted with this sexy shade. It’s dubbed Dior’s signature color for a reason: Aside from it being a fiery red hue, it has a coral undertone, which makes this shade look incredible on every skin tone, according to Martin.
“Once the cold weather hits, everyone is going to go for a vampy lip,” Martin noted. And this romantic black cherry hue is the perfect shade to try, because it not only flatters a range of skin tones from light to dark, but it will also make you look like a bona fide badass.
You can’t go wrong with a rich berry shade for fall. What makes this crayon cool is that A) you can skip the extra step of using a liner (the lip crayon has a rounded tip that acts as a liner and a lipstick all in one), and B) it’s infused with key ingredients like jojoba seed oil and shea butter, so it has the opacity of a matte lipstick but feels super hydrating on your lips.
“You’re going to see a lot of warm suede and rich chocolate browns this fall,” Martin noted. So, if you haven’t already jumped on the brown lipstick bandwagon, dip your toe into the trend with this deep chocolate brown version. You won’t have to break your bank either with this sultry shade; it gives ’90s vibes in the coolest way ever for just $6! Consider this ultra-matte color your secret weapon to slay all day.
Keeping a bright eggplant shade in rotation during the fall is always a good idea. The purple-toned pigment will not only look gorgeous on your lips, but this lipstick’s creamy texture also feels extremely moisturizing.
This blackened plum has a shiny finish and its slightly opaque texture goes on as smooth as a balm. To switch up your look, layer this burnished shade on top of a matte pink, red, or purple hue to give your lipstick even more definition that’s straight-up fire.
Just because fall calls for deeper colors doesn’t mean you still can’t incorporate lighter shades here and there. This pink lipstick will amplify your natural lip color, making your pout look even fuller. Plus, the shade has both warm and cool undetones, which means it works on a wide range of skin colors.
This brick red shade is basically your new neutral for fall. This coveted matte brown-red is one of NARS’ bestsellers, which means you have to try it out yourself because it’s just that good.
Don’t let this unexpected blue shade scare you away. In fact, Martin is convinced that rocking a navy blue lipstick will put you ahead of the game this fall. “Navy is going to be the new purple this season,” Martin added, and he’s right! I’m already seeing models wear navy blue hues down the runway and celebrities have been wearing it left and right — so why not you too? I dare you to try this trend and not feel empowered and cool!
This beautiful berry shade has a hint of chocolate brown, making it a sultry modern version of a ’90s lip shade. The best thing about this liptick: its budge-proof formula, which literally lasts all day.
Fall isn’t just about browns and berries, so feel free to throw a popping pink shade into the mix. This soft pink hue has gray and beige undertones that makes this the perfect medium for a variety of skin tones. Don’t worry, it won’t dry your lips out either, making the matte formula feel so comfortable.
Doesn’t the name of this shade alone just make you want it? A natural berry lipstick is the perfect everyday neutral to keep in your purse. Plus, it’s one of those day-to-night shades that’ll look just as good on in the office as it will on a dinner date. What’s more, this berry also has soft brown tones that’ll complement a range of skin tones. Oh, and the orchid extract it contains promises to keep your lips feeling super-hydrated.
