BEAUTIFY: Autumn Lips

Lips are the most powerful of facial weapons. They can be used to brighten up a dreary day, match your outfit, or even add some drama to your look. Dark and dramatic lips were seen on the AW12 catwalk at Rochas, Bottega Veneta, Dolce&Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci. Get in season with our favourite line up of autumn lippies:

Nars does what it says on the can with its ‘Autumn Leaves’ lipstick (above) and re-creates the beautiful autumn colours by adding a shimmering orange surface to a luscious red. It’s the perfect clash to a deep pink outfit.

Next up is Clarins, with Spiced Orange and Orchid Pink- both of which will brighten up any less-than-brilliant autumn day. (above and below)

The brightest pair from our round-up, the Clarins duo colours took inspiration from fruit and flowers to create dramatic yet easy to wear lipsticks with a hint of shine.

Topshop brings us a touch of the gothic in the form of Beguiled and Inhibition. The deep red of beguiled is best suited for evening wear, when the colour of autumn is hidden in darkness and it’s up to you to make it stand out. Inhibition is a deep and daring pink- almost purple- colour which will highlight any autumn’s day or night.
