Ask A Stylist | Fall Lipstick Trends
What’s the hot lipstick for this fall? What does it look best with, and where should we skip it?

We asked one of our CakeStylists, Lory, to answer this great question. Here’s her response:
For this fall, we’re seeing a lot of wine red shades - it’s toned down from the bright reds and oranges for the summer, but still a bold statement look. With lipstick, we’d recommend avoiding matching your lipstick to your clothes. Sure, if you’re wearing a black lace top with wine red accents, that’s fine - but don’t wear wine red lipstick and wine red skinny jeans. Never get too matchy-matchy! We also recommend avoiding pairing your lipstick with a piece it clashes with - so, with wine red, don’t pair it with a bright orange cardigan.
Check out the collection of varying shades and hues of wine red lipstick we collected above! Wine red varies a lot - it can simply be a darker shade of hot red (which is still very bright), or it can look pretty close to a brownish-red or brick red. Check out this great piece by DailyCandy to learn how to choose the best red lipstick for your skin tone (but also remember that these rules aren’t strict - wear whatever you feel fabulous in!).
