The perfect accompaniment to fall? It’s got to be the berry lip. A deep rich shade that can turn heads instantly. Berry lipstick is a great way to switch up your look now that we are in September (we can’t believe it either!), so embrace this fall makeup trend with our guide on how to get the perfect berry lip!
Match Your Lip Liner
It’s always crucial to pair your berry lipstick with a matching lip liner. This ensures that your lip color stays on for longer, eliminates any chance of lipstick bleeding, and if your lipstick fades away, you are still left with a stain on your lips.
Choose Your Finish
When choosing your perfect berry lip, you should decide whether you want a matte liquid finish, a moisturizing finish or classic matte. Luckily, Charlotte Tilbury has one of each, so all you need to do is choose your favorite shade! We love a moisturizing lipstick finish for day time so you can build color, then a matte liquid lipstick such as Hollywood Lips in Show Girl for night.
Don’t Forget Your Blusher
With dark lipstick, you want to make sure that you are looking glamorous and on trend, avoiding any Morticia Addams-esque vibes. Unless that’s your thing, of course. Complement your berry lips with a flush of color on your cheeks using a subtle blusher to give you a little more color!
Glam It Up
Transform your berry lip for a high-shine luxurious pout using a matching lip gloss. This will add instant glamour to your makeup so you can go from desk to dusk to disco in an instant.
If you’re using lip liner, then you should have no problems with lipstick bleeding, but if you target a concealer around your pout after applying your lipstick, you will highlight and frame your lips. This will make them stand out and the color look even more fabulous!
For a subtle berry stain, you can tap on a matte lipstick then pat in with your finger, building color depending on your preferences. This will leave you with a gorgeous lip stain that is perfect for those of you who don’t want to go too bold with your lipstick.
