GOTHIC ROMANCE

This fall we have seen lots of gothic revitalization mixed with neo-nineties grunge.  The resulting beauty #motd is dark, bold with a soft hint of romance.  Thankfully this color spectrum is very easy on our skin tones.  It’s basically the reintroduction of that used-to-be-hideous-auntie-status-maroon but it’s been majorly updated into a matte, with more red, less brown and whole lot more cool.  Not only are these goth maroon lippies great hues for Indian & Middle Eastern skin tones but the formulas are long lasting.  Pair these lip colors with lehengas, sarees or salwars featuring moody colors like forest green, black, maroon, and navy with rust gold or copper embroidery to recreate this look.

Maybe you haven’t heard of Lime Crime before, but one YouTube or Instagram search will demonstrate just how much of a cult favorite their Velvetines are. We particularly love this color and how long lasting these lippies are. Even through food and drink!

JUST BITTEN BERRY

We never seem to stray too far from this just bitten berry. Every couple of years this color seems to resurface, and each time with more punch and passion. It’s such a versatile color for both Eastern & Western wear. Don’t be afraid to match directly with your outfit. These berry shades are absolute showstoppers with matching outfits. To be honest these go with most colors but extra points for wearing it with kelly & pastel greens, blush tones, and teal!

This HOURGLASS lippie is hands down one of our favorite liquid lipsticks. The color is gorgeous – like drop dead gorgeous. And the formula is easy to apply and non-drying. It’s basically our go to. Worth every penny.

RED LIP CLASSIC THING THAT WE LIKE

Following in the footsteps of our famously fearless friend, TSwift, sometimes there is nothing more classic than a red lip.
And obviously Deepika is giving us major vibes here. Now, as much as we can, we will try to emulate her grace and just plain gorgeousness, but we can definitely steal her lipcolor. The minute you apply this shade, it’s hello #bollywoodbombshell and goodbye #basicandboring.

This cream lip stain by SEPHORA is arguably one of the best matte liquid lipsticks out there and definitely one of the best values. Not to mention, this shade “Always Red” is so a great bluish red aka helps make your teeth look whiter.

This sheer lip pencil from NARS is true to its name – satiny pink. This pencil provides the ease of a lipstick in the comfort of a balm.

BARBIE

Admittedly this look isn’t for everyone or all skin tones, but it can be stunning.  The trick is finding the right shade for your coloring and natural lip shade.  The best way we like to explain it is imagine a shade that is your concealer with a hint of pink.  This is your best barbie pink.  When done well this shade will give you color – it will make you look like you’ve just gotten back from the beach with a wonderful glow or enhance your rosy cheeks.

If you haven’t had tried BITE BEAUTY you’re missing out.  First, let’s talk about the fact that you can visit their store in NYC and create your own uniquely personal shade of lipstick.  Second, we absolutely love all the different shades in their collections, including this rose.
