fall makeup trend: red lips

fall red lip: Ilia Beauty lipstick in 'femme fatale'

fall red lip: Ilia Beauty lipstick in ‘femme fatale’

Runway makeup is inspired by the designer’s use of fabric, colours and prints, and for the most part is an extreme interpretation – requiring tweaks for daily wear. Fall runway makeup however, is most often classic and simple.

The red lip is a staple part of Fall/ Winter collections each year, and while I sometimes feel like Meryl Streep’s character in Devil Wears Prada when she utters:

Devil Wears Prada_Florals

I still love a good red lip when the air turns chilly and you start thinking about pulling out your sweater collection.

From classic red to berry and oxblood, here are my favourite shades heading into Fall:

  1. ILIA Beauty Femme Fatale, Arabian KnightsGypsy, Dress You Up, 99 Red Balloons
  2. Kjaer Weis Goddess
  3. Bite Beauty Mulberry
  4. Jane Iredale Sugar Plum, Red Currant
