Ah, fall! It’s one of the best seasons for fashion and beauty. Unlike summer, you actually want to wear makeup – and it won’t melt off. And unlike in winter, you won’t have a thick scarf and voluminous hat obscuring your makeup mastery.
Plus, beauty brands love to merge their autumn palettes with the colours of the seasonal harvest. For example, typical lipstick shades for autumn include pomegranate, red wine, leaf-read, burnt pumpkin and cocoa, as well as perineally chic neutrals and nude hues. Of course, these colours were also reflected on international catwalks this season, making them the must-have makeup hues for this fall.
Here are our top 10 vegan lipstick shades to colour your autumn.
The brand: All of Hynt’s ingredients are eco-conscious, cruelty-free, toxin-free and beneficial for the skin. Their Aria Pure Lipsticks are plant-based and last for ages!
