A purple lip is always on trend for autumn, whether you want to go all out with a dark gothic look a la supermodel Joan Smalls or keep it subtle with a chic berry lip stain. Guaranteed to suit your skin tone, there’s a shade for you. We like ours paired with a bare face or team your purple pout with a metallic copper eyeshadow for a dramatic fall makeover. These are our favourite purple shades to make a statement this season...
Burberry Kisses Lipstick in ‘Oxblood No.97’, £25, at uk.burberry.com
Lipsticks don't come much more luxurious than Burberry Beauty's Burberry Kisses. We're coveting their 'Oxblood' shade; a gorgeously rich purple with a light gel texture for effortless application. Its satin finish is easily buildable so you can decide the level of intensity, be that an understated hint of plum or a darker vampy look.
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in 'Broadest Berry', £17, at clinique.co.uk
If a matte purple isn't your thing, try out Clinique's ultra moisturising Chubby Stick in this flattering berry shade. Its glossy bright finish offers a more subtle take on the dramatic trend and its balm formula makes it super quick and easy to apply on the go.
