Embrace Bold Fall Colours With The Perfect Shade For Your Skin Tone

Autumn is in full swing, so it is time to get glam accordingly. Pink is always cute, and you can never go wrong with nudes, but it is no longer their turn to shine. Put down that coral lipstick and prepare to embrace bold fall colours! There’s a perfect shade for your skin tone, let’s take a deep dive! Deep dark reds and rich berry tones are in season. They can be intimidating to the unaccustomed but don’t worry; there is a surefire way to narrow which lipstick looks best on you, lets give you some of our trusted lip tips!


Identify Your Tones

The majority of makeup this or that questions can be answered by figuring out your undertones. It is a common term you will encounter when picking out everything from eyeshadow to foundation. Most people fall under warm or cool. Warm-toned individuals have yellow, golden, or olive tones in their complexion, and those who are cool have pink, red, or blueish tones. Take a look at your wrists. How do your veins appear through your skin? If they look bluer, you are cool-toned, and if they seem greener, you are warm-toned. How did you fare this summer? If you tan before you burn, you are warm-toned, and if you burn before you tan, you are cool-toned. If you are having trouble using these methods, especially for those with very dark skin tones who cannot see their vein colour, instead try taking a photo of yourself against a bright white towel with no makeup on. Against the bright contrast of the background, you should be able to see what undertones you have quite clearly.

There is a third category: neutral undertones. While you may have just as much trouble as everyone else matching your foundation, if you have neutral undertones, you can rest assured that pretty much any of the lipsticks below will suit you. Go wild!


Seeing Red

Who doesn’t love a red lip? It is usually the first lipstick we try when it is time to experiment with bold colours. It always starts out a little scary but turns out to be worth it. Whether it is time for you to break out of your comfort zone or just looking for your next read, let us look at the options. So, you have established that you are cool-toned. When shopping for your red lip, look for products with blue or purple undertones. Think of a deep cherry red instead of a bright orange-red.

Try Pin Up Velvet Lip Crème or Prenup Crème Lipstick

You have checked all the boxes and have realized you are warm-toned. As you are swatching, lean towards lipsticks with reddish, peach, orange or yellow undertones in it. You will find that bold orange-reds, brick reds, and terracotta will suit you best.

Try Sizzle Velvet Lip Crème or Cinnamon Crème Lipstick

Bold in Berry

Berry coloured lipsticks are as varied as the little fruits from which they get their name. So many different shades fall under berry! From light and preppy to dark and vampy. We are sticking with the latter, however, because they are what autumn makeup is meant for! If you are on the cool-toned side, look for lipsticks in wine or cranberry shades. Once again, think blue undertones. A deep plum shade will look incredible on you.

Try Boysenberry Buttercrème Lipgloss or Soap Opera Crème Lipstick

Warm tone berry shades follow along the same lines as warm tone reds as well. Look for shades with orange, red or yellow undertones. You will rock a berry shade that leans maroon or burgundy!

If You’re Feeling it, Wear it!

Picking a lipstick based on your undertone is a great way to narrow down your choices and try something new. Like most rules in makeup, it is hardly the law, though! If you’re cool-toned and want to wear a warm-toned lip or vice versa, go for it. Have fun with your looks and get creative this fall.
