Fall is a welcome time of year, with crisp, cool weather that begs for long sleeves and warm colors. Speaking of warm colors, fall and winter is a great time to go bold with those lips! Here are my tried and true lip shades for this time of year—these are my favorites that I have personally used and fell in love with!
My 8 Favorite Lip Shades That Are Killer for Fall/Winter
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita and Double Dare
I don’t recommend using a liquid lipstick every day because it dries out the lips, but these two colors are absolutely beautiful. Any hair color or skin tone can wear both of these shades and look fantastic. You’ll love how smooth the Kat Von D liquid lipstick goes on. Double Dare has a nice brick color while Lolita has a darker, more pretty brown tone. I combine them together for the most stunning lips.
I can’t tell you how many comments I got from women asking what lipstick I was wearing.
See I how combine these two shades for the final look in this video.
Sephora Lip Stain in Marvelous Mauve
Moving out of the browns and to the more purple colors, this is one of my go-to colors all fall and winter long. This lip stain by Sephora is a lovely matte with a deep, warm mauve. Be aware that it does go on neutral but dries darker. It’s another liquid lip stain so you don’t need to touch it up during the day; just put it on and go.
Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crayon in Plum n’ Get It
This next one is a lip crayon, which is very hydrating and fun to use. It’s a very deep and pretty plum color that is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a good color for date night or a bold look. If you’re looking for a rich, wine color, this is it!
Mac Lipstick Shine in New York Apple
This lovely lipstick is in the red family. It has a sheen to it that catches the light and gives you this cool ombre effect. This is a pretty color that you can wear with minimal makeup, have your hair back in a bun, and have a gorgeous put-together look with minimal effort.
Winky Lux in Meow
For another nourishing lipstick that is perfect for fall and winter, enter the Winky Lux in Meow shade. This is a beautiful neutral beige color that I love using because it is so comfortable. There are a lot of lipsticks that claim to be comfortable that aren’t, but this one really is.
Ilia in Arabian Knights
Okay, don’t be scared by this one. I know it looks super dark, but really this Ilia lipstick in Arabian Knights is one of my go-to shades year-round. It is stunning. I like to gently pat it on my lips to give just a subtle rosy glow. You can also layer it up for a deeper, more velvet effect. The reason I love this lipstick so much is that it stays all day long and acts sort of like a stain, giving your lips lasting natural color.
Mac Lipstick in Creme Cup
Last but not least is another of my year-round favorites that works well for fall/winter because it is so light and pretty. This is a neutral pink that goes with literally anything. If I could only have one lipstick all year long, it would be this one. This is a great lipstick for people who don’t like to wear lipstick. It’s beautiful and universal and so great to keep in your purse for any occasion.
