We are now officially into October so we can safely say it's Autumn, although here in Wales we have been having rather sunny and warm weather for the past few weeks. I want autumn evenings, cold winds and hot chocolates now please Mr. Weatherman! When it comes to Autumn I love changing up my lipsticks to darker, vampy shades and nudes so I thought I'd share 5 of my favourite Autumn lip colours that I always reach for.
First up is a bargain from MUA's matte lipstick line which includes a range of £1 lipsticks. Wild Berry is a vampy purple shade in the bullet that almost looks a little scary but actually, it applies as a softer vampy purple as you can see - so it's definitely wearable. You can add another layer to deepen the colour but I love wearing a soft purple. At the opposite end of the price scale is one of my all time favourite nudes, 'Shy girl' from MAC (I'm sure their prices increase every year). Shy Girl is the perfect brown shade nude that doesn't leave fair skinned gals like myself looking washed out or concealer-lip style.
Another budget friendly shade for Autumn comes from Loreal (via cosmetic fairy) for 99p! Unending amber is a much deeper nude/brown shade that is a nice change from the typical berry shades this Autumn. The formula is smooth and hydrating and a definite steal for less than £1! And finally, two wine shades from Avon and Rimmel. Both 'Wine with everything' and '107' are deep, pink toned wine colours that are classic autumn shades and look great with a neutral makeup look to darken things up a little.
