With Fall here and Winter around the corner also comes new exciting fall trends!

2015 fall/winter looks seem to be focussing on a bold lip this year! Stick to cool facial tones and plum, wine, and burgundy lip colors. Achieve the ultimate fall look by using mostly matte cosmetics. A matte face and lip are the way to go for the winter time. Watch Beauty Blogger LABEAUTYGIRL ‘S fall/winter inspired makeup tutorial, where she executes a simple eye with a statement lip.
