The 'Do it Yourself' Autumn Lip

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Today is officially the first day of Autumn and it's a day I always look forward to. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons (behind Winter) because I love cold weather, the beautiful way the leaves change, hot cider, and of course, the Autumn fashion and beauty trends. 

One Autumn beauty trend that I always participate in is that classic 'Autumn Lip' - or that beautiful plum/red/purple shade that seems to just fit the season perfectly. 

It's probably one of the best feelings when you find your perfect shade, but it's also very difficult. Even though I do have some favorites that are easily bought (which I'll share with you later on this season), it's actually pretty easy to create your own. The 'Do it Yourself' Autumn lip is easy and utilizes lipsticks, lip liners, and lip glosses you already own!

Today I'll be showing you a combination of three lip products that created the wonderful shade you see above - it's beautiful, perfect for this season, and wears all day.

Do it Yourself Autumn Lip!

1. Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Pencil in 'Addiction' - Neutral, Purple and Brown Tones
2. Makeup Forever Rouge Artiste Intense Lipstick in 'Mat 8 - Bright Red' - Rich Red
3. Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in 'Musk' - Pink and Brown Tones

This is such an easy look to recreate and such an easy look to create yourself - using whatever products you own.

To start out, I lined my lips with Rimmel's 'Addiction'. This liner is a deep purple/brown shade and gives a great base to add extra color on. I lightly filled in the rest of my lips using the liner.

Next, I used a lip brush and painted on the Makeup Forever Lipstick. I put the red on first because of how strong the color is - meaning it's easier to blend on top of it. 

Lastly, using the same lip brush, I painted on 'Musk' from Bite Beauty. This lipstick is a lot creamier than the other two lip products so it was easy to apply last. The combination of the three products left me with a beautiful plum lip for Autumn! 

Honestly, I just randomly decided to try and make a new Autumn lip color and I really love how it turned out!

Will you try to make your own creation for Fall?
