Alyson Hoag from Authentic Beauty is here to give you her best advice on how to dress up your lips for fall.
What lip color trends do people get stuck in?
I see too many women still wearing a glossy pink that is out of 1987 and hasn’t been updated.
What are the current trends for fall lip color?
Deep red or chocolate brown lips that are primarily matte. There are a lot of options, but the common denominator for fall is richness of color.
What is the most important factor when selecting a lip color?
Lipstick is your accessory, so there are no hard and fast rules about choosing one. The only real rule of thumb is to balance out your look. Make sure that if you have a bold mouth, you have softer eyes.
What styles of lip color are best for women in their 30s? In their 40s? Beyond?
In your 30s, this is the time to wear some trends! Have fun and play! Then as we age, we tend to lose color in our skin, so the lips will appear stronger. A little more color makes us look brighter and a bit more healthy. Just remember that if you haven’t changed your makeup people can tell exactly how old you are by the way you wear your makeup.
