With fall finally here, it’s time to look into toning down the colors we loved so much in summer and introduce fall lip colors. That doesn’t mean you have to look drab, however. Fall is a time to embrace the deeper, richer shades of the makeup spectrum, and the results are usually stunning. Below are some of the best fall lip colors to wear.
