Vamped Up

Maybe its the cooler temperatures, the warmer tones the leaves gorgeously possess or the delicious scents of cinnamon, pumpkin spice and baked apples. We tend to let go of the neon tones and floral pigments and aim for jewel tones. In fall, everything gets richer. Especially our beauty palettes. It was during my time in undergrad when I first began experimenting with lipstick and now, years later, I'm not nervous to have fun with different shades. The trend right now: Vamped Up. Dark, vampire-espque colours that would attract Dracula, yet flatter any skin tone.

Lip creams are great, but whenever playing with shades this bold, make sure to stay within the lines and have the perfect lip liner to accommodate your look. Make sure to exfoliate first and apply a thin layer of lip balm prior, as these tend to dry your lips with wear.

My make-up tip: be subtle with your eye application. Let your lips do the talking and don't distract.

Lipstick Queen has beautiful shades when you're feeling vampy, seductive or simply pretty. 

As fall continues, keep branching out with your lip game and don't be afraid to go deeper!
