I’ve fallen in love with Oxblood!
Yes, it sounds disgusting but speaking in the fashion-sense, far from it.
It’s my new colour crush of Fall 2012 and I’m looking forward to rocking some Oxblood style this season.

Another Fall trend that I love are the dark, richer lipsticks.  I’m hands down a lipstick girl and Fall is a great time to start experimenting with lip colour.

Usually in the summer, I opt for the lip gloss as opposed to lipstick so when Fall/Winter hits, my lips are ready for a splash of colour!

Rich, dark shades can look fabulous on gals of any skin tone, whether you’re fair or tan. 

To get into the fall vibe, try a velvety magenta or maroon that’ll look great with all the navy, orange and purple shades on the runway this season.

I also happen to really love the plum lip!

It has a serious vampy-look to it, especially if you’re pale-skinned (like me), so apply accordingly!

And remember, with dark lips keep your eye makeup simple!

Bright red is always in style, and never more so than in the fall. Match the changing foliage with a red that’s as pretty and feminine as it is bold and unmistakable. To keep it from looking too summery, opt for a matte formula instead of a shimmery one. The soft style of matte makeup gives off a luxurious vibe that’ll go perfectly with any cashmere sweater or knit scarf.

If you’re new to bold lipstick, ease into the trend with a color that’s a little more muted. Reds and pinks with brownish-orange undertones will blend with your natural lip hue but still add that pop of seasonal color that will make it seem like you’ve been snacking on pumpkin pie and cinnamon.

Prep your lips for color application with a lip scrub. A gentle rub before bedtime, and your pout will be pretty as soon as you wake up.
