The transition into the colder months is very bitter-sweet for me. I absolutely love Summer and it’s hard not to smile when the sun is shining. Despite this, there are so many things that I love about October that I’m not feeling too sad about the departure from sunshine. Halloween is nearly upon us and I’m already addicted to the Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Lattes. I’ve also been loving working Autumnal colours into my wardrobe and make-up looks. Dark vampy lipsticks paired with muted faux-fur accessories in the backdrop of the crisp autumn leaves is a beautiful picture indeed.
Pointless rambling about the change of season aside, I thought I’d talk to you guys about one of my favourite topics (and obsessions) lipsticks. I was going to do a top 5 Autumnal lip picks, but in the end I couldn’t decide between them so threw them all in. Here’s some quick swatches of the shades that I love to wear this season – I’m very aware that they all look very similar and I have a bit of a problem.
From left to right: Topshop ‘Drive’, 17 Supreme Shine Lipstick in ‘Rich’ , MUA ‘Scarlett Siren’, Revlon ‘Black Cherry’, Rimmel Apocolips ‘Galaxy’, Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in ‘Glam Plum Fulham’.
My favourite of the bunch has to be Topshop’s ‘Drive’ a striking burgundy shade. It can be swatched lightly as pictured above or layered onto the lips for a more dramatic effect. I love how the formula is matte, which makes it super wearable and long-lasting.
Are you guys excited for Autumn? Comment below your favourite thing about this season & your favourite transitional make-up item 🙂 I’d love to hear some recommendations.
