Rocking A Bold Lip

The minute September hit I burst out my purple/plum lip colours, Autumn is made for bold lip colours, the two go hand in hand, so I thought I would put together my favourite ones, and show you what typical makeup I would team up with my favourite lip colours :) 


I would normally go for a fresh quite subtle look everywhere else. Reaching for a good coverage foundation and a glowing skin. I love the make up revolution radiance palette for this, it just makes me look so healthy. Brilliant dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Trio.

For Eyes I will opt for either a matte soft eye using the Naked Basics palette, or go for a neutral shimmer with all that glitters & Mulch.. usually no eyeliner, but lots of mascara.

For cheeks I will go for something subtle again like MAC's "Blush Baby" the perfect flush of colour.

Now, onto the good bit.

Finding a good plummy red colour could be quite hard, so I have picked out my favourites, ranging from inexpensive.. to YSL prices, but all are equally as beautiful.

1. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in "Jilted" (£15.50)

2. Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Lip Stick in "Devine Wine" (£6.99)

5. Sleek MakeUp True Colour Lipstick in "Cherry" (£4.99)  

without a doubt my favourite at the moment is the Maybelline Devine Wine, something about the smooth matte finish I am completely obsessed with. It's all over my instagram!

Which lipsticks do you reach for in Autumn? do you have one to rival my favourites? I am always looking for new ones to try. Let me know in the comments below :)


  1. I love Divine Wine too, it's the perfect lipstick shade and is so nice in Autumn/Winter! Would be great if you could check out my recent fashion post? :)
