FALL TREND

I die for this color. Burgundy is by far the biggest color for Fall and I so badly want a burgundy handbag, leather jacket, corduroy jeans, wide-brimmed hat, shoes… anything and everything! A girl can dream… but in the meantime, who knew burgundy lips could be so gorgeous too? I never thought about this mulberry shade for myself; my eyes definitely but I guess I never thought I could pull it off as a lip color. I’ve been eyeing it in magazine editorials and on the runways but figured it was too high fashion for real life…

Until I had this a-ha moment…

I love a matte lip becasue it’s an ultra modern look and it adds instant sophistication. There are three main ways to create it: with a lip pencil, shadow paste or simply with a matte lipstick.

FALL FOR THIS

post design by amy nadine

Fall fashion is finally here and as we store away our jean cut-offs and bikinis, we have the chance to change up our makeup a little too.  All my life I’ve always passed over lip colors in the brick/brown/rust/pumpkin family because they just didn’t seem pretty to me or like they’d do anything for me or my clients.  What a closed mind I had! They don’t just look gorgeous on redheads, they look good on everyone, especially as we lose our summer tans.  You just have to broaden your concept as to what you’ve always thought was pretty and give it a try; because it’s a very sophisticated look when you’re ready to see yourself that way.

You can go soft with a rusty nude or caramel or go bold with a deep orange. I would suggest pairing it with a simple eye… a bone or wheat shadow and black mascara complement it beautifully.

I worked on an advertising campaign yesterday for a sunglasses retailer with one of my clients, so it was all about the lips.  Not only did I need to decide what colors, but also what finishes… glossy, satin or matte… which made me very curious about ya’ll and where we are right now in lipstick trends, outside of what magazines dictate.  LA is such a bubble so please let me know what you’re doing out there!
