Lily Collins reminds us that berry lipstick is beautiful
It’s time for a bit of a beauty overhaul, beauties. Yep, I’m asking you to put away your bright, poppy corals and pinks and embrace the autumn-esque lipstick hue that is berry.
Now, I realise it’s highly likely you may find yourself getting a wee bit nervous when wine-inspired lip colours like plum, merlot and burgundy are thrown around as the latest and greatest makeup trends, but don’t be. Seriously. After all, berry – the stunning shade I’m urging you to wear – is the most wearable hue in this wino-coloured crew and it’ll leave you looking grand.
Don’t believe me? Just look at Lily Collins. Doesn’t she look pretty? Feminine? And done, but not too done? Indeed she does.
Find bold lipstick intimidating? Not to worry – berry is like red lipstick’s easy-going friend. It’s flattering on all skin tones, and there are an abundance of berry glosses, stains and sheer lipsticks to ease you into the look if a full-on lipstick is too daunting.
As a subtle way of gently pushing you in the berry-lip-wearing direction, here’s a little rundown on which berry hues suit which skin tones so you can make like Lily Collins and rock this autumn lip colour as soon as humanly possible. (Phew!)
For those with fair skin tones… You’ll look best in a brighter berry lippie that has a touch of pink in it. Any hue that leaves you looking like you’ve been nibbling on your lips a little is perfect.
For those with medium skin tones… Opting for a true berry colour is your best bet; one that reflects the natural colour of a plump, delicious raspberry.
For those with darker skin tones… You can afford to go a little deeper with your berry hue, so whip out a dark raspberry shade for maximum impact.
