Put away your bikinis and beach balls — summer is at its end. Don’t get too cozy yet, though. Here, our beauty experts give you a sneak peek at the ultra-glam, luscious lip looks for this autumn.
Vamp it up
Bold, beautiful lips are all the rage this autumn, so vamp it up with bright colors like fire-engine red, sultry orange and even hot pink, as seen on Ralph Lauren, Jill Stuart, Jill Sander and Jenni Kayne runways this fall. Stila Longwear Lip Color in Outrageous is a perfect blend of lipstick and gloss that will keep your color looking rich and glamorous all day long.
Vibrant red lips never go out of style, but this fall, they are back with a fresh twist. Take the plunge and plump up your pout with Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner in 50 Red. Use a matte foundation and skip the blush for an even more dramatic retro look.
Bring an element of intrigue to your look with the wine-colored lips that are ruling the runways. From merlot to deep burgundy and even shades of purple, this fall is all about the dark side of lips. Pair this look with natural makeup and a simple smoky eye to bring extra attention to your perfect pout. Both glossy and matte finishes are in, so play around and see what suits you best. Try MAC Lipstick in Sheer Plum for a high-impact color that flatters any skin tone.
Nude lips make a comeback this autumn — or maybe they never left. Either way, naked is in, so let your natural beauty show. To get this fresh, barely there look, apply a coat of Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Soft Nude, or get your sparkle on with Estee Lauder Pure Color Lip Gloss in Quartz.
Don’t be afraid to pucker up with an ultra-glossy pout this fall. Autumn’s very hottest trend may be the sensual, glossy finish. Pair this dazzling look with thick, swooping eyeliner, bold brows and a smudge of shadow, and you’re ready for the catwalk. For crystalline colors and out-of-this-world shine, give Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Crush, Punch Drunk, Adrenaline or Big Bang a whirl.
