Technically, the calendar might still say “summer,” but we all know, it’s definitely fall. While we might be trading in sandals for flip-flops and tank tops for sweaters, now is the perfect time to also change up your makeup. Josephine Fusco of Makeup by Josephine has been the artist behind runway looks, celebs on red carpets, editorial photo shoots and more. Below, she guides us through achieving the most sought-after fall lip trend of bold color, to help you perfect a primo pucker!
Of the striking hues were seeing on lips this cold weather season, Josephine states, “I love the boldness that fall/winter brings. The trend is going to be bold matte lipsticks and lipstains that are within the berry colored families.” Her favorites?
- The New Retro Matte Collection from M.A.C Cosmetics. What better time to celebrate this look then with the collection Retro Matte from Mac Cosmetics. My go-to in this collection would most definitely be Fixed on Drama
- LipMixes from MAC. Josephine is a fan of Crimson.
- You will also see deep hues of blood red or ox blood red. Very deep! A shade I really like is Monte Carlo Lip Cream by NYX Cosmetics (shown above).
- I’m in love with Nars Matte Lip Pencils. Mysterious Red is great for the season.
Note from Josephine, “When using such a deep shade try to keep the eyes and face simple so this way it doesn't conflict with the boldness of the lip color. Too much of everything is not a good look.”
Stay tuned tomorrow for a how-to from Josephine on how to achieve fall’s ultimate fresh face!
