As much as we all need a killer red lip for fall, maybe a deep, sultry oxblood, we also all need a really good nude lipstick that’s perfectly toned to work the cooler weather.

Our summer nude lips don’t always work so well in autumn. They can look too chalky or too bare, and instead of complimenting our complexions they can suck the life out of them.
Look for a nude lip that has some warmth to it, and that isn’t too yellow.

Here is a selection of my favorite nudes for fall.

Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Isola Bella
Apart from the fact that Isola Bella is right below Taormina in my much loved Sicily, I love the satin finish to this lip as well as the pinky undertone.

One of the absolute loveliest lip glosses I have worked with in a long time is Honest Beauty’s lip gloss in Generous Kiss. It’s a sheer pink nude with a great color pay off and a non-tacky, smooth gloss.
