When I say that my excitement for autumn knows no bounds, I’m not exaggerating. My stomach practically does summersaults thinking about cosy knitwear, festive drinks and—my favourite of all—autumnal makeup looks. Specifically when it comes to lipstick. My go-to makeup look in the colder months is usually a browny-orange shadow on the eyes with something shimmery on top, a simple sweep of highlighter across my cheekbones and a dark lip to finish it all off. Whether it’s a dark vampy red or a deep berry tone, it’s probably already in my lipstick collection—and that collection really comes into its own during the autumn months.
And I’m not alone in my love of seasonal lipsticks. Most of the makeup brands that I swear by offer up a plethora of autumnal lipstick options for my favourite season—from sheers to mattes, there really is something for everybody and I have a list of recommendations to prove it. At first glance, it’s easy to think that these shades might not be for you—especially if you don’t naturally gravitate towards bold lipstick colours—but, trust me, these shades are surprisingly wearable.
So, while it was difficult to condense down my list of recommendations (I am truly obsessed with lipstick), I’ve come up with a comprehensive list of the 13 best autumn lipstick colours that I recommend to everyone. Keep scrolling to see which ones made the cut.
