It recently crossed my mind how much my beauty routine has evolved over the past several years. I have gotten to a point, maybe it’s with age I’m not sure, where I almost feel incomplete without a little color on my lips. When I think back on memories of watching my mama putting her face on, the most significant memory is of her applying her lipstick. To this day she still wears about the same shade and I don’t know, it is just something that I’ve never forgotten. Like her, I do have a couple of go-to shades that I feel comfortable wearing from day to day; but, one of the great things about makeup is the ability to adjust your look from season to season or day to night. In addition to blanket scarfs, light layers, a red Starbucks cup, and neutrals, a couple fall appropriate shades of lipstick are equally necessary. MAC Rebel, which has been a long time favorite of mine, has recently been joined by MAC’s Del Rio and become my favorite pair for this time of year. They are warm shades that will beautifully compliment a wardrobe of neutrals and what kind of person would I be if I didn’t share the details with you?!
MAC Rebel, a perfect plum color with a satin finish. This one is, hands down, my favorite.
MAC Del Rio, it is a warm shade that is a perfect combination of mauve, dusty rose, and brown… but not too brown. You know? You never want it to be too brown but, a little bit is perfectly ok! That’s just me anyways!
What are your go-to shades of lipstick for Fall, Winter, or everyday? I’d love to know if there are any other must haves!
