Dramatic Autumn Makeup Tutorial

While you’ll normally see me with a bright pink lip most days (that I’m not working, that is), when it comes time for autumn, I can’t help but gravitate towards a deep, plum berry lip. Case in point: this gorgeous color called Amethyst #165 by Dolce & Gabbana. Gorgeous shade. As with all darker lipsticks, make sure your lips are well conditioned and exfoliated before applying. Try mixing granulated sugar in some olive oil for a quick, DIY lip scrub!

    That lip color is gorgeous and is definitely your color. Thanks for the budget options too, by the way. 🙂

    Such a great look, you made a vampy berry lip so wearable! Now I’m itching to go search through my lip colours for the perfect crushed berry colour.

    Really love that you included recommendations for lighter and budget options of the look too. 🙂

    Bold lips are my absolute favorite! So many times I feel things don’t look good on us pale girls, but no one can rock a fall/winter bold lip like us! I’m always in the market to add any lip color named “berry” or “plum” to my repertoire.

    Love the video, as usual! I just picked up a new plum-y vamp-y color for fall so the timing is perfect! Thanks so much!

    Beautiful! I wish I could get the same effect on my eyes (with the mascara and curl) 😀
