How to: Brown Lipstick

Brown boots, brown gloves, brown hats and scarves — now that fall is upon us, we’ve socked away the floral accessories and retreated to the beauty neutrals of the season.  But why stop there? Let’s step up the autumn routine and add a little brown lip to your beauty! First, find the right brown shade for your skin tone and then perfect this lacquered lip look with the help of professional makeup artist, Alana Dawn.

1. Line lips with a sharpened pencil liner similar to the lipstick shade you choose in order to really define your pout and ensure all-day wear. Try using Lancôme Le Lipstique in Amandelle and lightly fill in your lips as well. MDC Quick Tip: Over-line your cupid’s bow just slightly to make lips appear fuller!

2. Using a flat lip brush, apply a brown shade like Maybelline Color Sensational LipColor in Barely Brown to the lip line for extra definition and fill in lips completely.

3. Clean up and perfect your lip line by swiping a concealer along the edges of your lips with a flat, synthetic brush.
