Summer is officially over and autumn is here in full strength with all its beautifully colored leaves and sweater-friendly temperatures. I love this season for many reasons, but above all for the makeup. Last month I talked about my 5 favorite berry- and plum-colored lipsticks for the autumn season, now it’s time to talk about the rest of the products I like to wear them with. This is not necessarily a post about the current fall makeup trends but rather about autumn products which I’ve loved to wear over the last years in more or less the same combination. Eventually, I believe these colors never go out of season and always come back during fall in a similar way.
I like to pack light when I go travelling, whether I leave for a weekend trip or a longer vacation. Over the years, I found my personal favorites, which I can use for a variety of different looks.
If there is one thing I am mostly looking forward to in autumn, I’d definitely say berry- and plum-colored lipsticks! I wear these shades all year long but most frequently when the days get shorter and colder. Over the summer, I prefer light textures and bright colors, whilst these ones are more on the darker side. I’ve accumulated a few shades from a low to a high price that I adore.
Other girls can’t live without a classical red lip or a nude beige colour. I, on the other hand, can’t go a week without my pink lipsticks. I own other colours as well, but if I would need to choose a favorite colour, it’ll always be pink. Luckily the colour is very versatile and I’ve collected several different shades in various finishes. After all, pink is never just pink: It can have blue or yellow undertones, it can almost be neon or just my “lips-but-better”. Today I want to share my favorites with you, that I can’t simply live without.
