If there’s one beauty product I rarely leave home without, it’s lipstick. Why? It’s the easiest way to quickly add another layer to your entire look – all without changing your clothes! Changing up your pout immediately alters the vibe of whatever you’re wearing. You could choose a bold red or berry lip to make a simple outfit feel a bit more elevated, or a shock of pink to make a more subdued ensemble feel fresh and fun.
This fall, a wave of new lip colors graced the runways and I can’t wait to try them all. Here’s a breakdown of the season’s top trends according to personal style and mood.
If your personal style is more soft and feminine, trade in your usual pink lipstick for a sheer rose or coral that’s just a shade darker than your skin tone. Blush tones instantly add life to all your other features and look great with a bare face or as a complement to smoky or wing-tipped retro eyes. Try this lip with your everyday basics, like button-downs and jeans, or as a way to give a more formal look a sense of low-key elegance.

Think of rich berry, deep purple, and blackened plum as your new alternatives to classic red lipstick. They go with everything and look great on everyone, even if they are a bit edgier than other shades. Try wearing it with a basic black turtleneck and jeans for a chic ’90s vibe, or to offset a bright floral dress or top.
