Autumn 2013 lip colours

Friday, 5 April 2013

As the weather starts to turn, make-up colours are toning down. Coppers, browns, purples and berries are replacing bright summery reds, pinks and fuchsias BUT that doesn’t mean the slightly muted shades have to be boring.

These orange-and-brown-based hues warm up your complexion, making them perfect for the beginning of the colder months. Pair with shimmery bronze or copper eye make-up and soft blusher.

For yummy, kissable lips, try one of our top five autumn shades:

1. Clarins Rouge Prodige True-Hold Colour & Shine Lipstick in Dark Cherry, R235

2. Rimmel Vinyl Max One Stroke Maxi Shine Lipgloss in Passion, R69.95

3. Max Factor Flipstick Colour Effect in Gipsy Red, R120

4. Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick in Backstage, R145

 

5. Essence Lipstick in Look At Me!, R29.95

    of wow.. just learnt so much!! Haha never knew what colours that I should be wearing when.. love the idea of using the warm rich colours and pairing it with the bronzes and copper eye make up. Definitely would love to try it out and the best part is that it would look quite subtle and natural which i really love.

    As far as I am concerned you do not have to tone down your lip colour because of winter, when everything is dreary have a bright colourful face but the colours I see her look lovely.
