Now that Autumn is in full force, people everywhere are breaking out their flannels and scarves, boots and beanies, and trading in their softer summer makeup palette for a more autumnal hued color scheme. Fall is the ideal season to play around with different shades of lipstick since you don’t have to worry about it melting off and the variety of seasonal colors makes it effortless to match any shade with your outfit. Not sure where to start? From rich berry to subtle rosy nude shades, these colors are flattering on every skin tone and pair exceptionally well with a pumpkin spice latte. But try before you buy. Stores like Ulta and Sephora are a great opportunity to experiment with different shades before deciding on the perfect shade or shades for you.
