Since we've hit October, Autumn is in full swing and it's time to leave behind the peach and pink glosses and say hello to dark berries and nude lips. The one thing I really love about Autumn is the makeup, flawless skin with a bold lip is my thing and playing around with different shades and finishes is something I do nearly every day. Although I love my reds, Autumn is also a time for berries and plums, some more subtle and some in your face shades. The berry lip is perfect for a transitional look, it slowly moves your makeup into A/W without going in with a full on dark red, we'll save that for November and the Christmas party season.
For something more subtle but still on the berry side, Chanel Ingenue 96 is my go to. The Rouge Coco Hydra Base lipsticks are incredibly moisturising and lightweight in formula, they smooth onto the lips without pulling or sticking, creating an even lip colour that protects, nourishes and enhances. Ingenue is a high shine berry and with light reflecting particles it really plumps the lip, creating the illusion of a bigger pout. This is the perfect everyday shade that goes with any eyeshadow or blush but still keeps everything Autumnal. Ingenue is sadly no longer available but Emotion 92 is very similar in shade.
The last of my transitional lip colours is Topshop Naturist. The most subtle and barely there of them all and the perfect mauve/nude for the A/W if you don't want to be wearing anything to dark or bold. Topshop lipsticks are incredibly creamy making them super duper easy to apply, they glide on and create the perfect lip shape, with or without a liner. Despite being moisturising, this does give a pretty matte finish that stays put up to about 4 hours before having to re-apply so is a great everyday pick that can be topped up on the go without a mirror.
