Gorgeous Fall Lipstick Colors

The vibes this autumnal season are dark, sultry, and edgy! Vamp up your beauty regimen with fall lipstick colors in dark plums, vampy blacks, and 90s browns. The seasons aren’t the only things changing!


2022’s Fall Lipstick Colors

Don’t be afraid to mix up your makeup look this autumn. Your clothes aren’t the only things getting warmer, heavier, and darker. So are your lipsticks! Don’t be afraid to leave behind the glossy, girly shades of summer in favor of the more sultry, more classic fall lipstick colors. You can’t go wrong with a bold, matte lip — especially one that’s hydrating and long-lasting. 

This season will see makeup artists being drawn toward velvety matte finishes in bold colors. Some of us may still be scarred by the lipstick craze of 2016: the matte liquid lip. Remember those crusty, stiff lips? We’ve come a long way since then! 

Fall 2022 is all about full coverage lips with the perfect balance of hydration and pigment. My BRIAN + MW LIPSTICKS are infused with Vitamin E and castor oil to ensure that your lips are hydrated and protected throughout the day, without sacrificing coverage and color. 

Dark berry shades, warm neutrals, and classic reds will be all the rage this cozy season. 

Best Fall Lipstick Colors

Transitioning your lip looks from summer to fall isn’t as difficult as you might think. There’s even room in your routine for those glossy finishes that were all the rage during the sunny months! Read on to see how your summer shades can slide into autumn. 

Don’t want to hop into October with a full on vampy-glam lip? I got you. To transition slowly and gradually into Spooky Season, choose a slightly warmer shade than your summer staple that still compliments your skin tone. My lipsticks in shades GRACE, TELLING, and SANGRITA will get the job done. Soft and creamy, any of these shades will pair perfectly with a day spent pumpkin picking!


Moodier Fall Lip Colors

If you’re looking for fall lip colors that scream more femme fatale than girl next door, look no further than such seasonal staples as burgundy, reds, and — if you’re feeling extra daring — straight up black. 

For the perfect autumnal look, you’ll want to go for something like my lipstick shade in FALL CRUSH. Great for sensitive and dry lips, its creamy matte finish will hydrate all day without sacrificing pigment, no matter how many pumpkin spice lattes you sip!

You simply can’t go wrong with a classic red — especially if you pair it with a darker liner. I know, I know… but stick with me. A darker liner in a mauve or plum shade will make the transition to red darker, sexier, and more dynamic. Try pairing my liner in shade S’MORE with my lipstick in shade L’OPERA. 

If you’re feeling extra bold and brave, you can line your lips with your favorite creamy black eyeliner pencil. Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, you can seamlessly blend the black and red together for a sultry, show-stopping lipstick shade. 

Going for a full-on black lip is not for the faint of heart. I recommend prepping the lips beforehand with special care, using my specially formulated RE-CREATION LIP TREATMENT. Because fully pigmented blacks can be extra drying, you’ll want to be sure to take extra good care of your lips for all-day wear. 

You’re sure to fall head over heels for these gorgeous autumnal lip looks! Fall lip colors can be bold, bright, and brash or they can be warm, soft, and neutral. Pumpkin isn’t the only thing getting spiced up this season!
