Fall Beauty Trend: Berry Lips!

Fall is the perfect time to experiment with a new lip color – the changing seasons means you can take a break from candy-colored pinks and corals, and try on a bold, dark shade. Berry lips are versatile and classic, plus this shade is flattering on every skin tone. Let’s begin!

If you’re new to berry (or feel it’s too dark for daytime), wearing it sheer is the perfect way to test out the color. It’s also a much less tricky way to apply lipstick, so if you’ve ever had trouble with application (we all have!), this is a foolproof method. If you don’t prefer it, then just simply take a napkin to wipe it off or blend another color to your favor.

If you’re looking to really rock a trend this fall, deep, dark berry lips are sure to make a statement. Dare to wear during the day, or play up your berry pout for a great night-out look. Whichever you choose, this look takes a little more time (and maybe practice!) to apply than the sheer look, but the payoff is worth the effort! Using a lip brush would be the best way to apply it because it will go on evenly and not smudge off you lips.

My 3 favorite berry tinted lipsticks include Revlon Super Lustrous in Black Cherry, Maybelline ColorSensational in Deepest Cherry, and L’Oreal Colour Riche in Plum Explosion.
