I was dreading the end of summer but the truth is, I am excited for a wardrobe change, both in clothing and makeup.
I am in Maine on a Spring photo shoot (I am always working on the opposite season that I am actually in). The beautiful Maine coastline is the perfect backdrop for a spring shoot, not far away from the shore the leaves have already begun to change to the deeply saturated colors of fall that I adore. Colors so rich and sexy including so many variations of red (my favorite color) from Crimson, to Russet to Bordeaux.
If you haven’t started thinking of your fall MU wardrobe consider adding a rich wine lip shade to your color palette. Oxblood is the new red for fall and the perfect compliment to autumns deep color range.
To ensure these deep lip colors look fantastic, prepare your lips before application. Dark colors tend to emphasis dry chapped lips so follow these steps for the best results:
· Remove any flakiness from lips by exfoliating them first, I love Philosophy Kiss Me exfoliating lip scrub
· Moisturize lips: Try MAC Prep and prime lip. Lightly blot to remove excess moisture.
· Apply lip color directly from the tube then blend edges with a lip brush.
· Blot and reapply (so the color looks worn in and a little diffused) for longer wear.
A few of my favorite colors for fall:
Nars Pure Matte Lip Stick in Volga (deep aubergine) or Valapradiso (deep raspberry)
MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Fixed on Drama
Revlon Black Cherry
Have a question just ask me.....
