Danielle LeShea: Fall Lippies + Guide to finding your fall lipstick shade

Danielle LeShea: Fall Lippies
Summer used to be my favorite season for obvious reasons, but now I'm actually falling in love with Fall. I've noticed that my favorite lipsticks/gloss revolve around deep purples, bright sexy reds, pinks, and nude. Also after going through my lipstick collection (which is kinda ridiculous huge) and realizing that it is AUGUST and fall is coming!

Here are some lipstick colors you should have and build upon for Fall!:

Ground rules for lipsticks & glosses:

-Not all colors look good on all skin tones, pick a color that works well for your tone.
-Know what shades work well for your undertone
-When in doubt, pick shades based on your skin tone
- For gloss, make sure that it is not sticky, you don't want to walk around like your lips are glue.
-If you truly love the color you picked out, rock it!

Each of the lipsticks will be broken down into skin tones for easier reading, but I highly suggest doing some research on your undertones to get really specific.

*If you don't know your undertone, that's ok! I'll list some sites that'll help you figure that out below




Lipstick: Nudes, Pinks, roses
Alabaster Skin: Soft, dusty, baby pinks work well with your skin tone
Fair: Rosy Beiges, no matching your skin!
Light: Stick to pinks & beiges
Cool Olive: Sheer, light or dark colored nudes
Tan: Glossy, shimmery nudes
Medium: Pink toned nudes that are a shade lighter than your skin.
Caramel: Carmel like beiges
Mocha: Glossy, rosy pink, mauve, to a caramel pink works well on your skin tone.
Chocolate: Go for a shimmery nude that is lighter than your actual skin tone to brighten the face



Lipstick: Reds & Berries
Reds/Berry:
I talked about finding your red color with this post Red Lipstick

Alabaster: Wine Colors (i.e. Merlot, Raisin)
Porcelain: Rich cherry reds
Ivory:  Stick to cranberry reds
Golden Tan: Vibrant reds with a hint of orange, is not to over baring red, but will also bring out the gold in your skin.
Natural Tan: A mixture of cranberry and plums aka blackberry.
Olive: Coral reds with hints of pink, a definite summer color but also a go-to red.
Caramel: Bright and vibrant reds. Think of brick reds, true reds
Mocha: Deep Purples & reds, so a mix between plum & berry
Chocolate: Go for Orangey reds, they show up beautiful on chocolate skin tones.
