Berry Good

How good are my titles getting! Cheesy but sweet. Anyway today's post is about Berry Lips. This Autumn they are bang on trend. They can look too vampy and some people end up looking like they're ready for Halloween too early but most people are getting this trend just right.

Lauren Conrad looked stunning at this years Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party. The dark berry shade perfectly complimented her khaki shirt. She kept the rest of her makeup fairly neutral as the dark lips and cat liner made enough of a statement.

Lana Del Rey stuck with her classic, clean cut look with added berry at this years Met Gala . She proved that even being pale with dark hair berry lips look amazing. Lana looks stunning with her waved dark hair and adding her chosen lipstick makes her looks very retro.

So what can lipsticks can I buy to nail this trend?
MAC: Hung-up

This shade from MAC is perfect for Autumn. At £14.00 this lipstick has a reasonable price-tag considering the brand. Hung-Up is described; by MAC as a 'Dark Berry' color.

L'Oreal Color Riche Made for Me Naturals Berry Blush
L'Oreal: Berry Blush

This lipstick is on the lower end of the price range at £8.19. This is part of the 'Made for Me' Makeup range by L'Oreal. Berry Blush has a red undertone so would most likely suite all skin tones and hair colors.

Tips and Tricks:

- Make sure you get the right berry tone for you. Ensure it suites your tone of skin and hair color.
- Dot and blend concealer around you lips to give them a sharper, more clean cut shape.
- If you struggle to make your lips look tidy apply the lipstick with a brush.
- If you like wearing lip-liner try it one shade darker than the lipstick; this gives a funky effect.
- If the lipstick thins your lips apply clear lip-gloss to the middle to make your pout look fuller.
