Winter Lippies That Pop

Fall happens to be my favorite time of year. It is that time of year when change becomes very evident. The foliage transforms into the most amazing hues of yellow, orange, red. The beauty of it all inspires me to hug a mean cup of cocoa in the cutest oversized white sweater I can find. It is such a picturesque time of year. One of the necessary changes to prepare us for the impending winter is swapping out our summertime fine make-up. Yes, we can always transition with the same colors but a fresh start for a new season is always a good look. One word, matte. Majority of the winter lippie that pop are matte! Brands such as Urban Decay’s Matte Revolution, Queen Collection’s Spicy Seduction, and MAC’s newly popular Stone are but a few shades that are trending. These brands have high pigmented colors with a velvety application. They are simple stylish and fun hues that compliment dark complexions nicely.

Celebrities in Matte

Matte hues are turning up the heat this season. Even A–list celebrities are rocking their best sultry matte looks on the red carpet. Matte colors are definitely #winning this fall season.
