THE 90'S APPROVED AUTUMNAL LIP


Everyone is loving that 90's lip look this season. From runway to real life, it's a wearable trend as it is created using nude hues. The only real difference is that there are no pinky-nudes to be seen with this type of lip, just muddied-up nudes with brown tinges lending that throwback vibe. I am definitely excited that these colors are finally on trend as they tend to grace my pucker on a regular basis anyway. 

While I do love the matte finish that this look has seemingly adopted, I have really taken to Nars Lipstick in Bilbao, an almost rusted nude without shine, but with the slightest bit of shimmer running through it. I like the way it gives a bit more dimension and looks less dingy during the daytime, which for me, can sometimes be the case with nude based matte colors. When I wear these types of shades, I tend to apply a nude liner first just to create a more structured line and prevent any bleeding. My favorite for this is the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk - the color is perfect and the staying power is on point. In order to avoid a dry or flakey pout and to add the illusion of fuller lips, I then dab some Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 to the center of the lips. The finished look is an easy lip that pairs beautifully with a sweater for a "cozy chic" look.

Would you wear this lip color combination, or are you not feeling the 90's vibes?
