I consider fall the perfect time to dive into my arsenal of beauty products and change up my makeup routine. Normally, I tend to go for a more natural look, but once September hits, I'm all about rich shades of brown, gold, and best of all, burgundy. A particular makeup item I like to wear in this hue is lipstick because it truly never goes out of style. Whether you like a deeper berry shade of burgundy or one reminiscent of your favorite red wine, I can guarantee there's a shade out there for you just waiting to be worn. It's so versatile, looks great on every skin tone, and feels just right as the weather starts to cool off. Even if you're skeptical to try it, trust me on this. I asked makeup artist and founder of her own self-titled cosmetics company, Alexa Persico, and she totally agrees. For a few of Persico's favorite shades that range from drugstore to high-end, keep scrolling. A few of my own go-to's are below, too.
