These days it seems like I can barely get myself out of the house in one piece let alone looking cute. Some days that’s not even on my radar. Morning can be so stressful, even if you don’t have kids! Especially is you’re like me and are NOT a morning person. I never have been, despite my choice of career that requires me to be on 10 the second kids walk through the door at 8 am. One thing that always makes me feel polished, even if what’s underneath is not, is a good lipstick color. And this fall, we’re rounding up some of our favorites that have easily become our greatest weapons.
As far as we’re concerned, every woman needs 3 go-tos when we’re talking about lipsticks: a dark tone, a really flattering nude, and a classic red. Check out our favorites and how we pair these for the fall with our basic work outfits.
Obviously we love drama, so a dark lip is a natural choice for us! They really do look good on all skin and hair tones, and easily be worn during the day or at night for a bit more flair. We’ve been trading in our pinks and magentas for these darker shades on repeat already this fall!
I’ve always been a little wary of a nude lip, but MB is making it look so good, I’m super excited for this one to be a go-to that works every single day, not matter what you are wearing. The trick with picking the right nude for your skin tone is to go one shade lighter or darker than your skin tone rather an exact match.
I’m a firm believer in slapping on a red lipstick to perk up an otherwise boring outfit. Even an all black ensemble comes to life when you were a bright red lip. Just like nudes though, you have to find just the right one and this can be a little tricky.
