Fashionista roll-call! Summer vibes are over. The days are shorter and colder and thus require a major lookbook revamp. Why? Because it’s officially fall, beauties. Other than the essential autumn accessory, the PSL (pumpkin spice latte), it’s time to rethink everything about your usual fall go-tos. Specifically, we’re talking about classic red lipsticks. I know it can be hard to let a beloved thing go, especially one you can rely on time and time again, but rest assured, New York Fashion Week has come and gone and in the process gifted us with major inspo for new fall lipstick colors.
Who says you have to wait for spring to try these baddies out for yourself? Trust me, once you see what NYFW has served, you won’t want to wait a day to test out these runway looks. Better yet, every killer lipstick, gloss and tint is a quick click away. Every mentioned product includes a link, estimated cost, and other makeup recommendations to achieve the designer’s original vision.
Are you ready to brighten your look with the best of NYFW’s fall lipstick colors and looks?
7.) The Blurred Lip
Try: Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Rich Lipstick in 306
Estimated Price: $25
Pairwith: Double Team Special Effect Colored Mascara
Girls, bears are not the only things getting ready for hibernation.
The blurred lip trend was everywhere at NYFW. That means it’s time to put all liners to sleep.
Berry colors were particularly popular among the beauty looks. Choose Clé de Peau Beauté Extra Rich Lipstick in 306 for a little extra shimmer. Apply the lipstick towards the center of both lips and blend outwards with a Q-tip. For extra pizazz, add Urban Decay’s colored mascara in your favorite hue.
6.) Glossier than Glossy
Try: Too Faced Melted Latex Liquified High Shine Lipstick – Girl on Top
Estimated Price: $13
Pair with: Violet Voss: The Rainbow Eyeshadow Palette
The next lip craze is ultra-glossed lips. Everyone from models on ADEAM’s runway to celebrities like Camilla Belle sport polished pouts.
To rock this angelic look, look no further than Too Faced Melted Latex Liquified High Shine Lipstick. Girl on Top is ideal for a vibrant, lacquer finish. Use with bold, glittering eyeshadow to achieve a glowy finish.
5.) An Autumn Vamp Look
Try: M.A.C. Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour – High Drama
Estimated Price: $26
Pair with: Kat Von D Autograph Eyeliner
Dark colors are a perfect choice for fall lipstick colors in 2018. However, the Goth vixen hue is by no means new. New York Fashion Week beauty influencers have put a fresh spin on it, though, pairing it with minimalist makeup and a fun winged eyeliner.
Choose a midnight black for an edgy night out on the town. For a daytime version, try M.A.C. Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in High Drama. It’s a deep matte plum that complements an orange winged liner well. Talk about spooky autumn vibes!
4.) A Vibrant, Refreshed Red
Try: Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Jungle Red
Estimated Price: $25
Pair with: Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush
I know I said the classic red should not be a staple in anyone’s fall lipstick colors, but that’s not completely true. It’s all in the execution. Instead of prepping, priming and lining your lips, go the blurred lip route. Remember, it’s all about making these killer lip trends new.
Choose the fan favorite: Nars. Their semi-matte shade, Jungle Red, is a sure way to nail the standard lip color. Smudge it in with a Q-tip, add a rosy blush and voila! A new way to rock an oldie.
3.) Barely-There Lips to Let Your Eyes Do the Talking
Try: Nars Sheer Lipstick in Preferred Tint
Estimated Price: $30
Pair with: Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit
What’s the next hottest trend for fall lipstick colors? So far, we have covered everything from red to black, high shine to messy, but if you’re a major lipstick gal, prepare yourself for what comes next… One of this season’s most popular trends is actually drawing attention away from the mouth. New York Fashion Week’s runways were full of models in faint, barely-there (or not there at all) lipsticks. The good news is that serious eye makeup and highlighter compensated.
Carmen Marc Valvo paired nude lips with lilac highlights and a smokey eye that includes glitter and red eyeliner. AH-MAZING. This look is perfect for going crazy with everything but lipstick. That’s why Nars Sheer Lipstick is essential to pull it off. It’s just enough to add a little somethin’ but won’t overpower everything else you want to do with your face.
2.) A Subtle Orange
Try: L’Oréal x Balmain Lipstick in Fever
Estimated Price: $14
Pair with: Grande Cosmetics Grande Mascara
Believe it or not, orange lips are here. Alice + Olivia and DI$COUNT UNIVER$E are clothing companies that changed theway we think about the unusual hue. Don’t worry if you’re still not sold—even the oranges chosen on the runway weren’t too bold.
To achieve a similar doe-eye and refreshed look as Alice + Olivia’s model, use a light orange lipstick. Try L’Oréal x Balmain Lipstick in Fever. It’s a more inconspicuous orange-brown, perfect for those who want to match their lips to their PSLs. Add Twiggy-inspired lashes and there won’t be anything in your way from stealing the show.
1.) The Glittery Foil Lip
Try: Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow
Estimated Price: $20
Pair with: M.A.C. Mixing Medium Eyeliner, M.A.C. Lip Pencil and M.A.C. Glitter
If you thought foil lips were so 2016, think again. Fashion designer Jeremy Scott has reinvented the trend—this time with extra glitter and no hard-to-use foil.
To get this knockout fall lipstick color look, avoid foil lip sheets. You’ll want to follow the same glitter regimen as Scott’s models: Apply matching lip liner (M.A.C. Mixing Medium Eyeliner) and then add Stila’s liquid glitter eyeshadow to your mouth. Finish off with loose glitter, and you’ve got yourself a NYFW look that’s to die for.
