7 Autumn Lipstick Shades To Wear Right Now

berry stained lips

While everyone else is busy pulling out jumpers and jackets, we much like to update our makeup wardrobe as the season changes. And when it comes to autumn, lipstick shades is where we prefer to play the most.

It’s true there’s nothing like a statement lip to make an outfit truly pop. But the great thing about autumn is that both bold and subtle lipstick shades are fair game.

So whether you’re here for an eye-catching orange or goes-with-everything nude, we’ve got colours to suit every taste and cosy autumn occasion.

Here are seven trending autumn lipstick shades to wear right now.

#1 Glossy toffee

Trending nudes have certainly become more wearable of late. Gone are the deep cool-toned mattes that require serious precision. Instead, we’re welcoming warmer, caramel tones with a kinder, satin to gloss finish.

Try: Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Candy Glaze in ’04 Nude Pleasure’ ($64 at Myer)

#2 Mauve

Mauve is having a moment and we couldn’t be happier. The purple-leaning nude has the scope to look good on everyone but those with yellow undertones will find it particularly flattering.

Try: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in ‘Mauve Bliss’ ($14.99 at Chemist Warehouse)

#3 Coral

If your go-to shade is red, consider switching to a slightly more orangey tone to shake things up. Go bright to make a statement or muted to keep it wearable through coffee and snacks.

Try: Bobbi Brown Luxe Defining Lipstick in ‘New Mod’, $58 at Myer

#4 Burgundy

Rihanna has always been the queen of the vampy lip. If we had to guess which Fenty shade she’s sporting here, we’d put money on the Icon Lipstick in ‘Board Memb’r’ ($34 at Sephora)

#5 Peach

If you love a monochromatic look, you can’t go wrong with peach on the eyes, cheeks and lips. And if you’ve got blue eyes like Reese, be ready for them to pop.

Try: Kylie’s Professional Mineral Goddess Lipstick in ‘Tangerine’, $36 at kylies.com.au

#6 Stained berry

We know for a fact this stunning lip shade is the CHANEL Rouge Allure L’Extrait Lipstick in ‘Rouge Excessif’ (coming soon). But what we love most about this look is the diffused edges that emulate a ‘stained’ effect. Recreate it by concentrating your colour in the centre of the pout, smudging it towards the edges with a lip brush.

#7 Dusty rose

If you’re after a nude to go with every autumn outfit, a dusty rose is what you’re looking for. The undertone is slightly pink with just a tinge of purple, to create a colour mix that works on just about everybody.

Try: Nude by Nature Moisture Shine Lipstick in ’03 Dusty Rose’, $13.69 at Chemist Warehouse

  1. I have the Dusty Rose shade courtesy of a BH event (remember those days? 😢) & I still love it. It’s a great nude for my pale self. Also bought a berry shade last year that I can’t wait to rock once the weather gets cooler.
