Things I’m Obsessing Over This Week: Fall Lipstick Colors

It’s October? Already? 2018 flew by!!! I’ve had some MAJOR life changes in 2018 and can’t believe we are already knocking on 2019’s door.

One major change was a cross-country move to the desert town of Palm Springs, CA. Now that we live in Palm Springs, fall looks a bit different for us than it did in Birmingham. Palm Springs is hot year round, an average fall day is 85 with s slight breeze. Birmingham, AL isn’t known for its cool temperatures but its the coldest climate I have ever lived in and I was obsessed with fall there.

Palm Springs is the most beautiful and instagrammable place I have ever lived but definitely comes with some downsides, like no seasons.  I don’t get to experience the leaves changing or the cool evenings of fall but that doesn’t mean I can’t get myself in the Fall Spirit. I love Halloween and my birthday is in the Fall so I have lots of things to look forward to in Fall.

One of the things I really look forward to is updating my makeup routine. No matter the actual weather, every season I love to update my makeup routine just a little. For instance, in summer I like lots of golds and shimmer and by winter I prefer a clean more matte look. In the fall, I like to soften my blush to a more mauve color and use a lot of cool-toned eyeshadows. I like to subtly update my entire makeup routine every season but one thing I really love to update is my lip color.

I’ve said it once, I’ll say 10 more times, I LOVE A BOLD LIP! This summer I was obsessed with a very glossy nude lip but my usual go-to colors are purples and reds with a strong brown undertone.

Okay now, let’s get to the lip colors I am OBSESSING over this fall.

I have talked about this ALL over this blog but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE lipstick! To quote my girl Rhianna, “Lipstick. It draws attention away from any flaws. When someone is wearing lipstick, you just assume they’re wearing a full face of makeup. And guys are stupid–they won’t notice when you’re not.” YES GIRL!!! I couldn’t agree more! Its the easiest makeup to apply and really completes a look.

If you were to look in my current makeup bag about 40% of the bag is lip products, I really can’t live without a strong lip collection. What’s your go-to makeup product? Are you as obsessed with lip products as I am? If so, what brands are you obsessing over? I always need more lipsticks!!!
