Now that fall is officially underway and you’ll be wearing textured fabrics like wool and cashmere in dark and neutral colors, go bold and beautiful with dark lips. Plum is a wonderful shade of lipstick for fall, even though it’s a very strong color and may take some easing into. But, try it out! The striking shade is very versatile and can we worn for day or night. If you aren’t accustomed to rocking dark lipstick, try a deep red before completely taking the plunge into plum.
Because plum is one of my favorite colors to wear during the fall, I know when to apply it heavily for the full color effect and when to lighten up the application. Be careful not match your clothes and lipstick too closely, especially if you have very fair skin. Be sure to pick the right shade for you. While some plums are very deep, others are bright and more suitable for certain complexions. And when wearing anything as dark as plum or wine, go very natural with the eyes.
