The Season's Biggest Fall Makeup Must-Have Is…

Fall calls for color in the form of ’90s-inspired berry lips that range from light stains to almost black, perfectly complementing the equally vivacious color palettes of designer collections. Several luscious shades are leading the runway for this powerful pout: Plum-black is back at Marc Jacobs; ripe raspberry rules at Dolce & Gabbana; and oxblood is the new red at 3.1 Phillip Lim, where makeup artist Francelle Daly pulled her hue inspiration from her favorite old pair of Dr. Martens boots.

These revived shades of berry are not only visually appealing but super-wearable, their elegant drama pairing eloquently with the other hot makeup trend of the season: foundation that enhances an au naturel face. Those with a more refined palette need not worry. Substituting a juicy rose shade in lieu of the more goth-friendly options will do the trick quite nicely. It’s all so berry ’90s.
