Fall is here, and matte formulas are what your makeup routine needs, thanks to less humidity and crisp cool days. One of the most popular matte trends right now is liquid lipstick. If you haven't gotten in on the trend, here are the best liquid lipsticks for fall. Once you go liquid, you won't ever look back.
Liquid lipsticks apply like a gloss, but dry like a lipstick. They often come with a doe foot applicator, like a typical lip gloss, which is perfect for precise application. You don’t have to worry about smearing, because these formulations are highly pigmented and wont budge during brunch. Even those waffles don't stand a chance.
To ensure the best liquid lipstick applies evenly, paint it on your lips in one direction and apply one coat at a time. I like to line my lips with a natural-looking lip liner as a base. Because liquid lipstick is so long wearing, it can be a bit drying. Lips are dry enough during the winter, so you can minimize the dryness with a lip liner and up the moisture by topping your liquid lipstick with a gloss.
Fall shades are typically more vampy, darker, and richer than your summer pinks and nudes. If you don’t want to give those beloved shades up, bring those into fall by choosing warmer, browner nudes and pinks.
Convinced yet? I knew you'd be. Embrace the liquid lipstick life with me with these incredible shades for fall.
