A few days ago we celebrated my Mom's birthday at the St. Regis is Monarch Beach. I always love visiting as we are greeted by beautiful ocean views while we sip on warm tea and indulge in chocolate desserts. Yum! After lunch we went for a stroll embracing the beautiful early Fall sun and breathing in the smell of the ocean! I was very keen to wear my new glasses that I had fallen in love with just a few days before at Nordstrom and could not help but snap of few pics to share on the blog. I mentioned these glasses in my September favorites but they are the Prada 'Triangle Logo' 53 mm Sunglasses. Honestly I think they could have been slightly more creative with their naming for such a beautiful pair of glasses but who really cares! I love this snow leopard print on the frame and the amazing grey sides with the minimalistic triangle Prada logo. I think these glasses will transition beautifully into the Fall/Winter as they are in such icy tones! If you're interested in them you can find the glasses Here!. I was also particularly happy with my outfit of choice for my Mom's birthday as I paired this beautiful 1State skirt with my Chelsea 28 ultra fluffy jumper and simple red flats from Payless. I loved this look as it was perfect for the beginning of Fall and an amazing celebratory outfit for my Mom's birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! tehehe I absolutely recommend a stay at the St. Regis of Monarch Beach if you get the chance as it is one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever visited!

Autumn is one of my favorite seasons to really play with my lips! It is the season for signature red kisses to accessorize your cat eye look and berry lips to play up any Fall look! And of course never under estimate the perfect nude lips for that smokey eye look that is so much fun for Fall. I pulled some of my absolute favorite colors from M.A.C. that are my signature lips for Autumn to share with you!
So the first color on the left is the M.A.C. nude lip in the color 'Flesh Pot'. This color provides the ultimate nude lip when you want to draw more attention to your eyes. I love this lipstick because it is extremely creamy and has a peachy undertone still providing your lips with just a hint of color. It also has a slight shimmer that makes your lips look fuller! This is my go to nude lip color. Also, I use the lip pencil in the color 'Oak' from M.A.C. to wear along with it!
The next lipstick in my line-up is a light pink color called 'Creme Cup'. I love this color because I think it can be super diverse regardless of the fact that it is such a simple light pink color. I think it can be translated near the end of Summer when you are still holding on to the last few shades of your tan and don't want to fully jump into Fall, but it also becomes one of my favorites as Fall progresses into cooler days because I think it creates a really sweet chilly rosebud type lip! This color is really beautiful and is mostly natural looking so I don't tend to wear a lip pencil with this one!
The next color is definitely my favorite lip color for Fall and has been since last year! It's in the color 'Rebel'. This color creates the ultimate pouty berry lip. It is bright and attracts attention straight to your lips! Even though this is such a statement lip color, I have found that it looks good in a diverse range of looks and hasn't limited what I can wear with it at all! You can blend it out with your fingers to create a more berry stained look on your lips or wear it full force for a statement look! With this color I match it with the lip pencil 'More to Love'.
The next lipstick I love is definitely a more daring look. It is in the color 'Cyber' and honestly I have to gather up the courage sometimes to pull this color out, but when I do I always love it! It is an extremely dark purple almost black color and creates an ultra vampy look. This color takes a lot of confidence for me just because it is so harsh but can really make your look edgier for Fall which is so much fun to play with. With this color especially I recommend using a lip pencil and when I wear this one I use the lip pencil in the color 'Night Moth'.
This next one is a big favorite all through the Fall for me and is in the color 'Heroine'. It is a bright purple color and appears much brighter on than it looks in the picture above (second to the right). This is another statement lip, but I think that is part of what makes it so much fun! It is perfect for Fall and is a fresh take on the berry toned lips! I love wearing this color with a super neutral matte eye with a cat eye which I think looks ah-mazing! This color calls for the lip pencil called 'Fashion Boost!'
The last lipstick I have to share with you guys is my absolute favorite red lip. I had a hard time finding a red lipstick that fit me either they were to orange, too dark, or just not right! But this one has captured my heart! It is in the color 'Studded Kiss' which is perfectly fitting for the color! I love this red because it has a more blue undertone and makes your teeth look nice and pearly white! This color is my favorite red lipstick for that classic red lip and cat eye look that is so famous for Fall and the holidays! I use the lip pencil in the color 'Redd' for this lip and I think it looks super lovely for this time of the year!
So those are my 6 absolute favorite lipsticks for throughout the Fall Season. I love the range you can play with in color for your lips in Fall and I hope these tips and recommendations can help you find the perfect lipstick for the season!
