How To Mix The Perfect Fall Lipcolor



Deep berry, dark plum, burnt red...if it's deep and vampy, it's a perfect lip color for fall. If you don't have the perfect fall lipcolor, or if you just want more, here's a way to deepen any lipstick and get that perfect deep shade.

Black lipstick. Yup...that's right. With just a touch or black lipstick (or gloss), any lipcolor can be transformed. I personally use either MAC Black Knight lipstick or MAC Blackware Glimmerglass. The lipstick gives a deeper appearance while the gloss gives a sheerer, softer deepness. These products though, were both Limited Edition.

Some currently available products are:
Milani Sheer Dark Honey Crystal Lipgloss
Rimmel Black Diva Lipgloss
Hot Topic Black Lipstick
NYX Penelope Lipstick
OCC Tarred Lip Tar

How-To Examples (base color applied first, black applied with a lip brush on top):

  2. I love your different ideas for the look!
    Today I used Urban Decay's Oil Slick on the lip (because it's a sheer black) and put Blackfire gloss on top. You could barely see the sparkles in it, but it was a nice effect.
