When the seasons change from summer to fall, it makes sense that you’d introduce new pieces of clothing into your wardrobe to prepare for the upcoming cooler weather. The same thought process can be applied to your makeup, especially your lipstick. The vivid colors you applied all summer long likely aren’t quite right for fall, and that’s the ideal excuse to start shopping for a few new shades. If you aren’t exactly sure what constitutes a summer color and what works better for fall, we have you covered. Here are the 10 best lipstick shades to wear in fall 2017.
Let’s be real, red lips are a classic—no matter the season. That means come fall, there’s no reason to put your favorite reds on the back burner. Reach for a true red (leaving shades with orange undertones in summer) and coat your lips in a crimson hue.

A glass of wine (if you’re of age, of course) by the fireplace is a totally typical fall experience, and it just so happens to translate perfectly onto your lips. Swiping on a deep wine makes for a striking look that’s dark but still wearable.

Branching out from your basic pinks and reds (we love those, too!) can be intimidating, but fall is the perfect time to make a change. Whether you’re heading back to school or just going with the shift in the seasons, a berry lip is a smart next move. A bright berry shade lets you mix up your everyday makeup look without straying too far from your comfort zone.

Not sure what “MLBB” could possibly stand for? Allow us to explain. The acronym means “my lips but better,” which refers to lipstick shades that are close to your natural lip hue. It’s clear why these much-loved colors were discussed so often that they received an abbreviation. Look for shades similar to your own lips, but slightly pinker and you’ll surely understand the hype.

When you think of autumnal shades, burgundy likely tops the list. While you surely apply that knowledge to fall décor and dresses, don’t forget to give your lips the same treatment.

Peaches may be in season during the summer, but that shouldn’t stop you from carrying the color over into fall. Instead of continuing to rock lighter or brighter peach pigments, stick with dark, burnt peach lippies. By deepening the fruity hue a tiny bit, you’re instantly ready for fall.

There’s nothing tricky about pulling off taupe lips. While the grayish brown color may not be your obvious first choice, it surprisingly suits just about everyone. Plus, as the weather starts to chill out, a lipstick with grayer tones will match the atmosphere.

Fashion seems to be stuck in the ‘90s lately, so why shouldn’t your lipstick shade be there, too? Brown lips are making a comeback, and just in time for fall. Swipe on a mid-toned brown for a look that’s anything but boring.

Honestly, you just can’t go wrong with a nude lipstick. We sport nude shades all year long, no matter the season, and so should you. As the seasons transition, gravitate towards a nude that’s soft and subtle—all the qualities of a perfect go-to lip color.

Metallic makeup is as trendy as ever, and that doesn’t look like it will be stopping anytime soon. That means if you haven’t hopped on the bandwagon just yet, you aren’t too late. Pick out a metallic color you love and lacquer up your lips for a heavy metal look. If you aren’t happy with metallic makeup marking only your lips, check out our article on wearing metallic eye shadow, too.
