Best Fall Lipstick Colors

One beauty pairing definitely dominated the runway: a wine-stained lip with a clean eye. From Gucci[1] to Rochas[2] to Yves Saint Laurent[3], makeup artists favored the darker lip. To carry off the look at home, a little prep is essential, advises Tom Pecheux, creative makeup director for Estée Lauder[4]. Moisturize the night before with a balm to prevent “bleeding.” Prior to applying lipstick, line your lips with pencil—use either a shade that matches your natural color or one that matches the lipstick itself. Never, ever use a pencil that’s darker. Then comes the lipstick. Finish the look with mascara only. It will open up eyes without taking focus off lips.
