Five Lipstick Shades To Get You Falling For Fall

Anokhi Buzz Anokhi DIY Entertainment & Gossip Sep 28, 2015

We're covering the most perfect lipstick shades for brown-skinned beauties. This list is a combination of high-end and low-end picks that will complement that South Asian skin.

Fall is finally here! It's time to switch your bright lipsticks out and darken your look! A wardrobe change has to happen with the arrival of fall, and just like your clothing, your makeup has to transition into the season as well. As if we need another reason to buy more makeup! A simple change of  lip colour can get your from drab to fab. As a lipstick hoarder myself (over 200 and counting), I know my fair share of lip shades that will compliment South Asian skin this season.

One of the bestselling products at Sephora. Described as a Chestnut Rose this liquid lipstick stays on all day without drying out your lips. Lolita is a versatile shade that can look rose, brown, red or mauve — all depending on your skin tone.

This semi-matte long-wearing deep red with a hint of purple is a perfect substitute for those bright reds.

A matte brown lipstick paying homage to the era of the name. This lipstick is my go-to shade this fall and is the perfect brown shade that won't wash you out. Not only is the colour so unique but the formula is the softest and creamiest.

Probably the most affordable matte liquid lipstick on the market. This dusty pink matte liquid lipstick is the prettiest pink for this fall season. It's a muted pink that won't make you look overdone and can be worn on a day-to-day basis.

Love purple? This is the perfect purple for the season. This deep purple is an amazing pop of colour that goes on silky-smooth and has a matte finish.

Lipstick is a great way to be bold, change up your look and take it to the next level! To achieve the best results for your lipsticks, exfoliate your lips so the lipstick glides smoothly on the lips and doesn’t gunk up.
