4 Neutral Lip Looks for Fall


As soon as you see the leaves change to brown, it’s time to switch up your lipstick routine to match. Swap in some neutrals that complement autumnal color palettes and hold up against constant latte-sipping, not to mention ongoing mask wear. These 4 matte lipstick and liner combos remain smudge-proof as you continue to cover up throughout fall.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Foxy Brown + UOMA Beauty BadAss Icon Matte Lipstick in Aretha

Shape a full-bodied smile by shading your lip line with a suede brown hue, filling in the outer edges without touching the center. Swipe on a clay-brown, matte lipstick shade infused with mango butter to seal in the look without drying you out.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude + Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Cover Star

Put it in neutral with a classic color combo that pairs well with fall-inspired smoky eyes (yes, I think natural lips and super smoky lids should make a comeback). Shade lips with a beige-toned liner and fill in with a cashmere-soft, muted apricot lipstick.

Wayne Goss The Nude Essential Lip Pencil in Deep Nude + UOMA Beauty BadAss Icon Matte Lipstick in Angela

Pair rich brown lip liner and blush-terracotta colored lipstick for a neutral look with dimension. Shade in the liner to fill out edges, blending the shade toward the center of your lips. Then apply the matte lipstick at the center and pat in with your finger tip, smoothing out harsh lines for a natural looking blend.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Intense + UOMA Beauty BadAss Icon Matte Lipstick in Brenda

It wouldn’t be fall without a vampy brown lip—and this combo does the trick. Completely fill lips with a chocolatey-brown liner and using your finger, pat in a deep merlot lipstick shade at the center of your mouth.
